Phil's World Pub Guides - Québec, Canada

Pub Comments Location
L'Amère á Boire This up-market brewpub is pleasantly decorated with pale wood floors. Their own brews are superb. I tried the Porter, the 7.5% Imperial Russian Stout and the "Kozac" black lager, all of which were wonderful. Unusually, the selection of spirit bottles behind the bar was limited to six scotches. I don't know if they keep the others hidden or that's all they have - But who would want a vodka or a gin when the beer's as good as this!

St Denis
Café St Paul This pleasant cafe serves national drafts, plus a range of bottled micro-brews. The decor is bare brick and wood, with (plastic) vines hanging everywhere. Good food.

St Paul / St Sulpice
Bar Champlain This cafe has black-painted walls and ceiling and is lit by ultra-violet lamps, giving it a rather gloomy ambiance and making it look more like a night club but at the time of my visit, the dance floor was full of tables and chairs. To one side is another room with a second bar counter, and there is also a back room which I didn't visit. No draught beer was available, just Labatt and Molson in bottles.

Cheers Montréal A typical plastic airport bar. The breakfast omelette was disappointing.

Dorval Airport, gate 20
Deli Planet This busy dark bar / diner is part of the impressive food court at Central Station. Very busy during evening rush hour when draught beers including Mick's Red are 2 for 1.

Central Station
Maison des Sports This large open bar/diner has two rooms. There are lots of TVs displaying various sports - I watched some Argentinian soccer here. The usual national brews on tap.

Moe's This large multi-level pub/diner is housed in a converted warehouse. The nicely understated decor includes a number of genuine British Rail totems which must have cost quite a lot - I sat under Flitwick. Draught beer is limited to national brands. I can strongly recommend the lasagne (but don't expect to do anything physical for the next few hours!).

De La Montagne / Antoine
Pub Claddach This pleasant Irish bar seems more genuinely Irish than most. The impressive array of taps includes Guinness, Bass, Murphy's, Harp and Hoegaarden Wit as well as the local McAuslan. Friendly customers and barman when I visited.
