Thread: Country & Western Bars

    Country & Western Bars

    Hi Guys,
    Does anyone know of a country and western club in or around Montreal that has live bands playing? I used to go to Spurs on St. Jacques west, a few blocks west of Amazones but they recently closed. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You're both looking for The Wheel Club in NDG. Monday night is Hillbilly Night there. In addition, Craig Morrison's band, Vintage Wine, often plays hits of the '50s there.

    I don't know if Matt Large still runs the Sunday night bluegrass jam at Barfly on St. Laurent... Maybe...

    Love old style country....Cash, Jennings, Twitty, Robbins, etc. Love Randy Travis & Alan Jackson. Love classic rock from the 70s and 80s. Love Guns n' Roses, Eagles, Van Halen (before Hagar). If there's a bar out there that would provide this type of entertainment, i'd be a happy cowboy. Not much interested in 50's & 60's as far as live acts go.

    I've seen Vintage Wine a couple of times and can recommend them highly. I've never been to Hillbilly Night as I'm rarely in Montreal on Mondays.

    IMHO, this is the second best craft beer bar in Montreal

    All the beer there is Quebec produced

    Many different styles

    Decent sized space, with a backyard terrace ( perhaps too cold now )

    What do you think is the best?

    I am guessing he'll answer...

    I was at the Vices on Thursday. Good beer. Huge Selection. Very busy.
    Lots of smokers still on the terrace.

    But I still can't find a "craft" beer as good as St. Ambroise Cream Ale...

    I'm not sure that anything from Mcauslan would be considered "craft," but rather microbrew. Craft beers are, if I understand correctly, brewed in much smaller batches.

    Mcauslan has grown to the state of commercial brewery. It's a good brewery and some of their beers are craft beers (yearly Russian Imperial Stout and Vintage Ale). Their other yearly products (pumpkin, raspberry) are less craft beers in my opinion. I kinda agree with Rumples on that one, most Mcauslan beers are not craft beers (especially the cream ale which is the same as their pale ale but pushed out of the keg with Nitrogen gaz).

    DDC is indeed one of the best places around, but sometimes I grow tired of their beers so the real fun is to variate. There are a lot of great microbrews and craft breweries in Quebec. Smuler I can't wait for you next time in Montreal and bringing Dogfish Head and Russian River and other great microbrews from the US.
