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.

Ah, the famous Dieu Du Ciel.
A fair walk down from the Laurier Metro stop, closer to 5 or 6 blocks than the 3 advertised, but well worth the hike and through a decent neighborhood.
It seems to be in a working class neighborhood with families walking by. You can see the fermentation vats through the windows outside, and once inside by the bar. Nice art in the place, but it’s surprisingly small (at least to me). Close quarters, but we were the first people to walk in on a Wednesday, so we got the best table up by the windows where we could people watch outside. Fake granite floor tiles, wooden chairs and nice copper covered tables, fairly dark overall. The bar is nice with a great bottle collection displayed (I noted the Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock bottle: drool).
After ordering a sample of every beer they had on tap (9 beers) I grabbed a French version of Scrabble (different scores on letters?) off the bar and watched my wife whip my butt (kept her happy while I scribbled notes).
Great music at a nice level, it was easy to hear yet easy to talk as well. They were playing Beastie Boys, Nirvana, Reggae, and French pop.
The smoke that others mention wasn’t really an issue for us so early, but the lingering ash tray and stale beer smell so common in most bars made it difficult to smell the beers.
All in all, very happy with my visit and all but one of the beers were excellent: the Scottish beer wasn’t pleasant at all.
The wait staff was very nice, tolerated our English, and suggested Toi, Moi & Café just a couple blocks down Laurier on the corner (past Esplanade) which was a great light dinner and dessert (with great coffee).
A must visit if in Montreal (heck, even if in this part of Canada).
