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.

I finally had my chance to visit the Dieu Du Ciel Pub the other day, and it didn't let me down. It isn't anything fancy, just the perfect type of place to do some serious beer drinking. There is a small bar near the back of the place and a room on the right that has the tanks of beers being brewed. There is a large chalk board that lists all of the available beers, and when I was there they had 19 kinds. The prices seemed pretty reasonable, at about 5$ for a pint and it was more expensive for any beer over 7% alcohol (which most were). They also offer small 4oz samples for 3$ or so. I wasn't offered a menu so I'm not sure what the food was like, and you pay for the beers as they arrive at your table - and I never saw a printed bill. The beers and glassware were both fantastic and I'll be back here for sure.

Visited on 27 and 28 October 2010.
The emphasis in this small tastefully done brewpub is on the beer! The interior is simple and plain. The main decorations are the large blackboards listing the selections on tap (18 at the time I visited) and small framed prints of the artwork from their bottled brands. There are large clean windows looking into the well kept brewery from the bar as well as the street.
Over two visits we managed to taste our way through many of the offerings. Most of the bottled beers were available, as well as quite a few tasty surprises. The beers range from very good to outstanding; all are interesting. Servings are available in small glasses of varying shape according to the style, to varying shaped pint glasses to pitchers.
The food is delicious, but mostly limited to appetizers - small pizzas, nachos, sandwiches, a plate of Quebec cheeses was a nice choice. Again, the emphasis was on the beer. This isn't the type of brewpub you would go to for dinner.
Service was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The waitstaff tolerated our English and attempts at pronouncing French beer names with a smile and generally made us feel as at home as most of the patrons, who appeared to be locals, and represented a fascinating range of characters.
Overall a great place to hang out and a must visit when in the Montreal area.

This review is going back. I was there about a year ago, but realized that I had not reviewed it yet. We spent tons of money and two glorious nights there in October of 2009 with BA santa109. That was a long time ago, but I remember it quite fondly.
Atmosphere was great. Mostly french speaking locals. Each night we got there early enough to get a table on the raised platform in the back, overlooking everything. Despite being crammed far away, service was great even despite my horrible french (luckily my partner in crime is Quebecois).
Quality was top notch. From the food they serve (sandwiches, nachos.. that sort of thing) to the beers.
Selection is a tricky thing to rate, because it rotates. The great thing is that they update their tap list frequently on their website. We hit it at quite possibly the perfect time. If memory serves me correctly, all their best beers were on tap. I.E. Peche Mortel and Chaman. Interestingly they had mislabeled two of their beers. We ordered the two (one was a rye which is what we wanted, one was something else). When we informed the server of this, he nicely told us we were mistaken. He was probably just embarrassed that we know their beers better than he does. As stated before, we really nailed their selection with our timing...or is it the other way around?
Food is simple stuff like the aforementioned nachos, sandwiches.. I think there was a cheese plate. I wasn't there to eat.
Absolutely a MUST HIT when in Montreal. Probably the best brewery in Canada. Right up there with Trois Mousquetaires, and McAuslan.

After showing up 'early' around 1, killing time eating water bagels and exploring the surrounding area, I was one of the first through the door.
The atmosphere is pretty much like a bar. Lots of small tables with wooden chairs and a surprisingly small bar. The place started to get busy quicky as I selected options from the beer menu on the chalkboard.
During my visit, there were 17 offerings and erased spots for about 3 more. Seems like they could probably serve up to about 22 beers at any given time.
The range is pretty awesome; everything from quads, impy stouts, scotch ales, milds, blondes and stuff with spices and flowers. Everyone should be happy visiting this place.
As it filled, the atmosphere was pretty laid back with everyone pretty much sticking to their own tables. Not a huge 'community' aspect during my visit, but not snobby either.
The service was spotty. The first bartender / waitress was pretty much on the ball. My second server (who came on once it got busy) was a bit if a jerk. He seemed to have a disdain for English speakers. Then he brought me the wrong beer. Good news is that it was a beer I wanted later anyway (Riger Mortis), so no harm no foul.
The beers range from average to awesome; try as many as you can.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to BAs visiting Montreal.

Visited this place on a Wednesday night during a week long vacation in Montreal. This corner brewpub is in a nice location but the place was packed full when I visited. There was still a two seat tall table available so we had no trouble getting seated or getting table service. I had the smoked porter which was nice, and my wife had a mixed drink. The decor is all dark stained wood and there are many short tables, a few tall tables, and a few bar seats.
The beer menu was very long and had good variety, with many of the beers being from the brewpub. I would definitely stop in for a drink and some music (they had a DJ when I was there), but the food seemed like it was small pizza or simple sandwiches, which we didn't try.
