This is in the French side of Montreal. About 3 miles from St Catherine's street. We walked, taking us about 30 minutes. This place definitely lives up to the hype and ratings. We had 17 offerings on draft. With pours in 6/12/20/60 ounce pours. They also had a cask offering. It was an ipa that was fantastic. The best cask expeirence I have had(I have had quite a bit, fyi)This place is a must. Simply amazing. o' and the food, Well it is as good as the beer. I am truly impressed by these guys and am thrilled to have a go to place in Montreal.

Dieu Du Ciel is a must-visit for anyone visiting Montreal. Atmosphere is always lively and quite busy it seems, no matter what time it is, with a dark (literally) and comfortable vibe inside. As other BA's have pointed out, the main reason to visit is the exceptional offering of amazing beers (~15 taps & ~1-2 casks). The selection also rotates quite frequently so there is usually something new and exciting (and delicious) that I haven't tried before whenever I go. Food menu is mainly snack items from what I remember, but the nachos are tasty and of a generous portion. Service is relaxed with interruptions only when glasses are empty. What else can I say- One of the best brewpubs in Montreal.

We showed up at about 3:15, just after they opened, and while it wasn't crowded when we got there, by the time we left two hours later it was packed full. The place is, honestly, kind of a hole in the wall. Smaller than I expected and with a kind of feel more similar to the Toranado than I would have thought. Still, the service was good, if a little relaxed (but hey, Bienvienue a Quebec). The beer was of course, excellent and quite a selection with 18 house brews on tap. I didn't try the food, but based on what I saw I would agree with other reviewers that said you shouldn't plan on having dinner here. All said, it was a good experience and I would definitely make time for Dieu du Ciel next time I am in Montreal.

After trying several of their bottled offerings, I was excited to visit on a recent trip to Montreal. Actually ended up going two different times...once during the early afternoon and a second time on Friday night. It is about 3 miles away from Old Montreal; we walked during the day (1 hour each way); 20 minute cab ride on Friday night due to traffic. A reasonable selection of restaurants around if you want dinner before coming here.
On the visit during the afternoon, we were one of a handful of guests there. Sat outside on the patio. Service was fantastic. The server was very knowledgeable, willing to speak French and English equally well, and excited to sample one of the beers he hadn't tried. They had 18 beers on draft + 1 on cask; one of these was a guest tap. Great variety of Belgian, UK, and American styles. Food was simple but good flavor and quality.
Friday night was also great although a very different atmosphere. Sat inside this time (patio was full). Service was a bit slower with 2 servers for the entire place, but it was never unreasonably slow. The bar was loud enough to drown out the DJ that was there. great energy and a fun time. Altogether, both experiences were fantastic. Would love to have a this transplanted to where I live. Highlights for me were the Saison St. Louis and Mild-end (English mild). Worth the hype for sure.

I visited Montreal for a weekend and this was on the top of my list of places to visit. It's a bit far from downtown, but the nearby subway station makes it pretty accessible. I really enjoyed the intimacy of the space, with its dim lighting, hand-written beer menus and closely packed tables. Service was attentive despite how crowded it was, and I felt the selection of around 14 beers was generous. Even if you're only in Montreal for a day, this is definitely one of the places you should visit.

Went to Montreal for a weekend and tried a few of its local brewpubs. Out of the 4 that I visited this was easily my favorite. They have a selection of about 13 beers that they brew. Tried the saison and kolsch, both of which were great. They have an awesome outdoor seating area basically on the sidewalk in a really neat part of Montreal. It is a little off the beaten path, especially if you are staying more in the downtown area. But if a beer related adventure is what you a looking for I suggest taking a walk up to this part of the city, relaxing on their outdoor sidewalk deck, and trying the Peche Mortel. I did not try the food but the cheese plates looked great.

I had been looking forward to visiting here for a while. When my mates and decided on montreal for our mancation, I was even more pumped to go. Arrived on a Thursday afternoon. Not crowded but busy. It was beautiful outside. Many people were on the sidewalk drinking. Ordered the peche de mortal, stunned by how good it was. This is not a big place but has room to move around. There is a small stage and the vats are within feet of the bar. The clientele were friendly and the bartender was great. Spoke with him for a while. I did not try the food as I was meeting up with people later. It looked good coming out of the kitchen although I could tell where that was. Anyway, there selection was amazing. That day they had 21 beers on tap with many different styles, some rare. This was a great place! I brought all my buddies with me two days later. Not ba's but some had interest. All thought it was a cool place as well.

Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon as part of a Montreal bachelor excursion/weekend pub crawl. Easily one of the most pleasant drinking experiences in recent memory. Some of this might be clouded by the fact that the weather was exceptional, and we were able to sit outside and relax on the front patio, but the quality and selection unquestionably played a role as well.
The space is divided into an outdoor patio section that maybe fits 25 or so people, and a pretty basic indoor bar space with a large chalkboard detailing what's on tap. There's both full pints and tasting glass sizes available, which came in handy.
While these guys have some variation on just about every style you'd expect, you're here for the stouts. Imperial coffee stouts simply don't get better than Peche Mortel, and this was the first time I've had the latter on tap. It was magnificent. Nearly as good is the Aphrodisiac stout, a 6.5% cocoa/vanilla flavored spin on an American stout. We noticed everybody drinking what appeared to be grapefruit juice out of tall hefeweizen glasses, and this turned out to be the Rosee D'hibiscus, a wheat ale brewed with hibiscus flowers that was extremely refreshing on a hot summer day.
The staff was knowledgeable, and more than willing to tolerate the English language. I would imagine this place gets crowded at night, but was surprisingly empty on a sunny Saturday afternoon. I say surprising only because was Dieu Du Ciel located in New York City on said afternoon, it would have been absolutely mobbed. Didn't have any of the food (didn't even realize they served food), but was plenty filled up from Fairmount Bagels down the block (another must).
Simply put, if you're reading this review, and you find yourself in Montreal, you need to go here.

my usual friday night hang out
awesome place that has numerous varieties and types on tap. food wise there isn't much going on here, but if you're looking for food then walk up the street and get yourself some bagels.
beer is the central focus here and my word do they do it well, every beer i've tried has been good, and in some case even incredible. from my favorite stout (aphrodisiac) to my usual beer (voyageur de brumes) i've yet to be disapointed here.
a word on prices and atmosphere, by montreal standards this place is cheap, you have a hard time finding beer in this city at under 5$ a pint so 6$ for a pint of something you know is made properly is a steal in my opinion. atmosphere, don't expect people do usually keep to themselves, it's just the way things are here.
everyone i've encountered at the bar has known their stuff and has been extremely friendly, ii'd also like to add that most servers do not speak english, or if they do, they'd rather not. please show a minimum amount of effort (bonjour/soir, merci) and i can guarentee they will treat you well, language can be a delicate issue, i'm not saying your head will be ripped off if you speak english but it may help to try a bit.
All in all i can't praise this place enough, i am extremely fortunate to have it in my backyard and i urge any beer lover to go check it out, you will not be disapointed.

Brasserie Dieu du Ciel…..in Montreal.
Stopped here midway through a Montreal vacation. Hard to find location far from the Laurier subway stop tucked into a corner.
There is a small, wonderful, outdoor deck pavilion with around 12-14 small tables, inside it looks like a small rock bar and arena (a theme in Quebec) with jammed together wooden furniture, chalk boards with the beers and a medium bar in the back right. Vibe was casual outside, more beer-geeky inside.
We did not have any food, it seemed like they had a limited selection of bites, but it was mostly about the beer. Fine by me.
Bartender service was alright, took awhile to get his attention while he carried on a conversation but once I got him he was fast and helpful. Funny observations on using Credit Cards.
We were here around 3:30 before the rush. By 5 this place is packed to the gills. You’ve been warned.
So the beer, the reason you are here. They had eleven selections on tap. I tried a Kolsch, an IPA, a Blonde, and a Vanilla-Cocoa Stout. All were great, but the Cocoa Stout stands out as truly exceptional. The beer is the star here, rightfully so.
Very expensive here, but that's Montreal.
Overall, come early, but well worth your trip.
