Had a great lunch with friends at this spot at the western fringe of the plateau near the corner of Duluth and Saint-Laurent. Le Reservoir is one of the smaller brew pubs I have ever been in, seating maybe 25 or 30 in a space of maybe 20 by 50 feet between the heavy wood bar and floor to ceiling windows looking out on the street. They had six beers in tap at pretty reasonable prices. I had a tasty weizen as well as a solid IPA and heard very good reports on the oatmeal stout. In addition they had some heavier brews including an Imperial IPA and saison for over $15 for 750ml. I was going to take one away but they didn't have an off-sales license as it turned out. We would have had to have the bottle at the table. My end of the table had to cut out first so maybe a few were opened just to see.
I was there with some of the good folk from Ontario's Beaus thinking about a project for the fall. Turns out the easiest place for us all to meet was Montreal, one hour's drive east from their brewery. We all had a good feeds. The sandwich below was my pulled pork. All the lunches were served on a heavy plank that echoed the heavy wood of the table and the bar. Neat and tidy with a stainless steel theme as well. Definitely hunting down as the guys from Beaus thought they rarely made appearances at fests.
