Celebrate Microbrews at C'est What


There's a lot to C'est What. It's a great music venue, a roomy bar for people-watching, a convenient place to meet up and hang with friends, a relaxed spot to play a game of pool or board games, yet still intimate enough for a relaxed date.

But yes, this is your resident beer-lover and C'est What for me is about the beers. With 35 beers on tap, there's a brew to be found for anyone's tastes.

There are seven house ales ($3.98 for a half-pint & $5.74 for a pint), ranging from the Hemp Ale (4.7%) to Coffee Porter (5.9%). This night, I try the Chocolate Ale (5.5%). It's not sweet at all, but like a piece of dark chocolate, it is bitter and rich. This is an ideal pint for settling down for some socializing on a cool November night.

C'est What also features a myriad of other microbrews on tap. There's the King Pilsner (4.8%) for a lighter choice to the Maudite a whopper of a beer at 8%.

A few summers ago at the annual Festival of Beer, I fell head over heels for the St. Ambroise Apricot (5%) - and it's on tap here. Oh joy!

Believe it or not, there are even more beers to choose from their bottled selections, and none of them are Bud, Blue or Canadian.

I find beers to be like any other alcoholic beverage; too much mixing doesn't bode too well for the system. And while I'm duly impressed with the wide array of beers, the food is nothing to write blog about (a few words of advice: stay away from fish). So the St. Ambroise Apricot is a treat I get to look forward to for another day.
