In my opinion, one of the leading brewpubs of North America. What makes a leading brewpub?
1) House culture. A brewpub, with their compedium of styles, is most effective when their beers collectively stand together like members of a championship basketball team (as I watch the Pistons pummel the Cavs yet again). I found this coherency at Dieu Du Ciel. No matter what the style, the beers all stood proud with a collective vision: an emphasis on the subtle malt flavors and a quest for unmistakable drinkability.
2) Creativity. At a brewpub, you brew hundreds of different batches and different recipes. Have fun! Dieu Du Ciel is a fountainhead of fermented creativity. Cafe Au Lait? Hemp Beer? Scotch Maple?
3) Seasonal Randomness. You never know what you're going to get when you walk into Du Ciel, but you can count there is at least one beer that is in perfect and eccentric harmony with the seasons.
While in Dieu Du Ciel, it is like being in a Belgium Brasserie. Arched windows, brick interior, square tables with lively conversation and liberal attitude.
A collegiate feel and relaxed inhibitions. Impeccable friendly service. Highly recommended.
