1. Le Saint-Bock 1749, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, H2X 3K4

If it wasn't for a helpful/knowledgable staff, it'd probably be pretty tough to pick just one beer from their selection of more than 20, many of which are house brewed. And their food? Yeah, you're gonna want to try that too, considering some of it is cooked with said beer.

2. Vices & Versa Bistro Du Terroir 6631 boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal, H2S 3C5

VIces & Versa offers many local beers and ciders as well as local seasonal food. Wash down pub grub like pulled pork poutine and fries served with Imperial Stout-infused mayo with their 33 craft beers on tap. In the summer, the outdoor patio is the perfect spot in Montreal to soak up the sun and grab drinks with your friends. The seating is set up as long communal tables, so you can drink, eat and make new friends at the same time.
