Notes:
Opening hours 3pm - 3am. To get there by subway, take the orange line to the Laurier station, take the Laurier street exit, and walk towards the west, you should cross both St-Denis and St-Laurent streets before reaching the pub. Parking in the area can be tricky, lookout for permit zones which can be confusing.

Was up in Montreal for a weekend trip, and this place was #1 on my list to visit, both from previous reviews as well as recommendations from fellow BAers. And, after the visit, this place completely lives up to the reputation! There is a small outdoor seating area directly in front of the bar where people can smoke while they drink, if that's your thing. My wife and I promptly went inside. The staff was very helpful and prompt, and despite there being a varying level of comfortableness and functionality with the English language/language barrier, if you are patient you can easily get what you are looking for. Having been to other places in Quebec, this is actually saying quite a lot in their favor. There was a great beer line-up, including a cask offering. Tremendously crafted ales, and bottles are easily found in bottle shops throughout the city, also. I didn't push my luck with the language barrier to ask about growlers, although I will on a return trip because the beer is worth bringing back in quantity.

Again as is the case for most breweries/brewpub that I make the effort to actually visit, the beer at Dieu du Ciel speaks for itself, so this review will be strictly about the establishment itself.

It's probably a blessing in disguise that the Quebecois seem very much ignorant of Dieu du Ciel's reputation outside of the city of Montréal, chiefly in the United States -- to keep it short and sweet, Dieu du Ciel's brews are one of the few non In-Bev/SABMiller owned Canadian beers that distributors seek out for sales in the US.

I was pleasantly surprised when I visited Dieu du Ciel because it was noticably devoid of the usual craft beer fanatics making life incredibly uncomfortable by making me wait hours upon hours before being able to taste victory like some of Dieu du Ciel's Vermontoise neighbors to the Southeast. I walked in with a friend after a nice lunch in the Plateau de Mont-Royal area and found seats at the bar with very little resistance.

Dieu du Ciel's brewpub doesn't really feel like a brewpub at all. Save for the huge vats to the right of the main bar area where they experiment with the new brews and the inundation of DdC art work everywhere, the brewpub just feels like your average neighborhood watering hole -- a place for weary souls of all drinking ages and social classes alike to unwind and enjoy fresh local beers to end or start the day.

The service here is very attentive and friendly, and like most Montréal establishments I've been to on this trip, serviced by gorgeous women. I'm starting to realize that I may perhaps be living in the wrong state. Or maybe even the wrong country.
