This pub pulls endless pints of its own microbrews, which might include maple cream or java stout on a given day. With three levels, a terrace in back, and a street-side balcony, it draws a mixed crowd, students with laptops, and old friends just hanging out. Unlike other spots on rue Crescent, where the sound levels can be deafening, here you can actually have a conversation. Bands perform most evenings.
