“Great Brasserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Please make a reservation as the place may be quite busy! The choices of beers all make on site are great. The food is also very good. We share a salad and then tried a the pasta of the day and the fish and Chip and they were both incredibly tasty and good. The cooking is made by real chefs! I highly recommend it!

“Great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Just stopped in for one beer. We tried a Pitoune and an IPA, both really good (and strong). We didn't eat anything but what I saw on the menu and on other people's plates looked and smelled good. I found sitting indoors was a bit dark, more windows for natural light would be nice. The servers were friendly and helpful.

“Excellent microbrewery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This microbrewery is a excellent place to eat and drink.
They have many beer, you can order a tray of 4 glass to taste some of them. All beers we taste was really good. The menu is varied, you can get cheap plates (burger, pasta, steak..) and gastronomic plates (scallop, duck, bison, deer,..)

The place is a bit noisy.. it isn't a place to relax ;)
This restaurant seems really popular, when we tried to reserve we had not much choice of time.

“Only If You Like to Taste Beers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Very nice site - Very special, tasty and well documented beers - Enjoyable experience - Food is good (some nice selections, others are very standard, but all to expensive) - Young and noisy - On my way out I noticed that Dogs were accepted in the outdoor seating area - If I knew before, I would not have been in!

“For excellent beer lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The best beer you can find. Of all kind. They developped and brew their beers on place and also have few from other microbreweries. They serve excellent quality and tasting country food. May need to reserve for eating.
