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.

Visited Ciel last month when I was in town for the Hawks/Habs game. Got there early in the day and we were 2 of 6 people there. Tried several stouts and my girlfriend really enjoyed the Caserne 30 on tap. After finishing a few rounds and the cheese plate, we asked if there was anywhere local we could pick up bottled beer. The waitress directed us several blocks down the street and we picked up several cases to bring home. It is near impossible to get around Chicago, so we were happy to bring some home. 100 percent would go back again...and would probably go there just to hit all of the pubs again.

While in Montreal, every beer person I spoke to said I had to try this place out. Stopped by early evening and it was packed! Was able to squeeze into the bar and get a Belgian Pale Ale. It was excellent and the bartender was very helpful in describing it.
I was not disappointed. I didn't eat but people on either side of me were eating pizzas and they looked and smelled great. Would definitely go back here, maybe go a little earlier when it's not as packed.
They have a lot of selections so it might be helpful to review your choices before you go so you have some familiarity.

This is a small brewpub located in a fairly cool neighbourhood of Montreal. Not too far from the Laurier subway station which can be quite convenient – I am assuming parking is not that simple. The place gets packed very quickly so better arrive early. Staff is very knowledgeable with great selection which rotates quite often. I did not get a chance to try the food but the nachos, pizza and smoked salmon bagels looks very good. Definitely one of the classic place not to be missed when visiting Montreal.

So glad my friend decided to look this place up before we headed up to Montreal and convinced us all we needed to go here. Small little bar on a corner walk in at about 3pm on a saturday to an absolutely packed house. We were lucky enough to get a table next to the DJ after just a few minutes (who was playing some amazing tracks throughout the session which just added to it). There are about 6 of us total and we start ordering different beers and everyone gets a sip of each others beers so i got to sample just about everything they had on tap and every beer i sipped I wanted to order. I wish this place was within driving distance cause I would visit very often.
Our waittress was very helpful and friendly couldn't of asked for better service.
Pricing was super cheap to (especially given how much it is to get a bottle of their stuff in a store in America).
Will definitely check this place out again if I'm ever back in Montreal and if you are planning on going up there you HAVE to hit up this spot.

Last night I had the chance to visit this brewpub and I was quite pleased overall. It was very crowded since it was a Saturday night, but my wife and I managed to find a table in a cozy corner with a great view of the beer vats. We were almost immediately greeted by the waiter who was very helpful and friendly. Not once did we wonder what was taking so long or anything like that. It was always prompt service.
The beer selection speaks for itself. This is an incredible brewery and anyone who knows beer should try a couple from DDC at least once.
We also ordered some nachos which were not only very good, but also reasonably priced. This doesn't happen very often in Montreal.
Overall, this place is worth visiting. You won't find better local beer than this, and the bar itself is a great place to relax for a pint/meal.
