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).

Incredible beer destination in Montreal, perfect while visiting Jazz Festival, loves all the beers we had plus the excellent food. Sat outside in July at the large tables, had fun chatting with the other patrons!

Great neighborhood brewpub! Peche Mortel on tap - need I say more! Had the cheeseboard and flatbread pizza, awesome! at least 14 different beers on tap, all brewed by them. A must if you are a beery visiting Montreal. A little off the beaten tract, but don't let that scare you. Find it and go there. It's a great friendly place.

Friendly, knowledgable staff, great and varied beer selection from a consistently fine brewer. Food - huge platters of local artisinal foods. If you are not hungry, share.

Reminds me a bit of a European cafe; very chill vibe. Good selection and some cool stuff you can't find in the US on tap. Didn't eat the food but looked good, beers were great. The place to go when in Montreal.

Along with Vices & Versa (which is just a 20 minute walk away) and Station HO.ST, le Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel (brewery of the sky god) is one of my favorite places in Montréal. I could skip the other two, but any trip to Montréal for me requires a visit.

The beer cannot be argued with (look at the reviews!), and it's on tap (although they do offer some bottles). And they offer food, which can be rare. It's just smaller plate stuff (sandwiches, pizzas, and snacks), and slightly pricey, but it's good and I think it's worth it for the quality. The service is excellent, and the atmosphere is great - it's kind of like a small English-style pub, but with a very Canadian vibe. And it's great to sit out on the street, or in a window on the street, and just relax with a beer and watch traffic go by. (Ha ha suckers!!! You could be here but you're not!)

I haven't given them a good enough review here, what I've written isn't worthy, and I'll need to return to this and update it - hopefully after my next visit - but for now you've got a sense of my passion for the place, don't let it go to waste.

Highlight of our Montreal trip. A dozen taps and one cask including Peche Mortel. We just walked up to the bar and ordered. Chalkboards show the offerings. Plenty of options available and all we tried were incredible. A must stop for the craft lovers visiting Montreal.

My best place for beer in Montreal. Beers are very high quality and the place has a nice ambiance. Only drawback: it is sometimes extremely full
