Bromont beer bar-slash-pub Edgar Hyperlodge has made its first expansion, opening up its doors in a large space on St-Denis Street, in the Latin Quarter.
Edgar takes over from relatively short-lived Canadian-themed bar Le Saint Moose, which opened last winter but didn’t last a year at its location near Ontario E.
The original Edgar Hyperlodge is something akin to a chalet bar on steroids (hence why it’s a hyper-lodge, not just a lodge), and the Montreal one looks to be taking a similar approach. It has room for 100 people seated inside, and 200 people standing — and that’s before you count three terrasses, out the front and back. It’ll feature live music on Thursdays and things will presumably get raucous on weekends with DJs playing.
While it might sound like the sort of bar that would stick to Molson or Budweiser, Edgar has a fairly solid beer game: microbrewery West Shefford is on tap, with multiple options ranging from blanche and blonde to a stout and multiple IPAs.
There’s food, too: a long and fairly classic pub menu with multiple burgers, poutines, and ample nachos and wings. It turns out that West Shefford has also dipped its toe into the meat-stick game, as gourmet sausages from the microbrewery are also available — think beer-battered pogos, or a sausage on brioche with beer sauerkraut and dijonnaise.
STATUS — Edgar Hyperlodge is open at 1738 St-Denis from 4 p.m. to 3 a.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
