Benelux takes a much more stylish and modern approach to décor than your typical wooden, folksy pub. Set below a large tower block on Sherbrooke Street in the McGill student ghetto, this brewpub and café occupies what was once a bank. The simple, minimalist decor features high ceilings that reflect the former financial institution, and the old vault has been turned into a small “chill-room.” Hockey games are also regulary shown on big screens.
Walk into Benelux and you get an immediate feeling of open space. A row of tall windows look out onto the street, allowing you to people-watch while enjoying a tasty beer. Modern, leather stools line up along a stainless steel bar. Thoughtful touches such as pint glass light-fixtures and black plastic beer kegs stacked against the wall give off the neat feeling that you are drinking in a brewery warehouse.
Always Something New on Tap
Benelux’s beer menu is constantly changing depending on the week and the season and will generally include Belgian, British and American beers. From a pale-ale to a bitter to a blond to a bock, there is always a creative range of offerings from the brewmeister. You can even watch through a glass panel behind the bar as the beer is fermented in gigantic stainless steel tanks. Food is also available in the form of bistro-style sandwiches, delicious-looking hotdogs served in a hollowed out baguette as well as mixed plates of olives, almonds and cheese. The service is friendly, and the fun bartenders will tell you all you need to know about what is on tap.
