Wow! I can not believe that in all my trips to Montreal over the years, I had never found this place. For shame! I wish I'd been going here all these years. The best brewpub I've ever been to hands down. The beer is out of this world. Every style is master crafted on site. The pub itself is nice and homey. A nice place to sit back and enjoy some of the quality brews. Service was good. The staff was quite helpful actually. One this of note is they do not take credit cards. This was bad for us since we didn't have much Canadian cash on us for either visit. Stay away from the food by the way. Only people who couldn't see it being made ordeered the nachos. A wonderful place in Montreal!!! Laurier metro stop.

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

Atmosphere: super cozy little place, jam packed with tables and spilling out into the sidewalk. nothing really fancy about it or decorated up to much.

Quality: Dieu du Ciel is one of the better known Canadian breweries and the quality is known. That said I was very pleased with their smaller batch stuff. Top notch quality here.

Service: they only had 3 or 4 waiters serving the many tables but they get the job done no problem. Started in French and almost flawless switched to English for us.

Selection: around 10-15 taps varying from Belgians to IPAs and stouts, with some experimental and herbed beers in between. I jumped around the board and was super pleased the whole time.

Food: awesome food, we had a couple good pizzas and a smoked salmon sandwich, all were delicious.

Overall: a great brewery in a cool neighborhood in Montreal. Lots of good stuff going on here and you'd be sorry to miss it when visiting.

My favourite place in Montreal to grab a quality beer. I'm genuinely excited when I enter Brasserie Dieu du Ciel - although anxious too because it is always busy and sometimes a struggle to find a seat. DDC has a wonderful selection of beers on tap. Like many others who visit, I'm partial to their incredible IPA's (e.g. Moralite, Disco Soleil, etc), but there is a beer to match anyone's taste. Their food is also good (charcuterie boards, home made pizza's, and more). My only complaint is that the service is sometimes a tad slow. This is due, however, to it being so busy, rather than inattentive.

Wonderful brewery and bar in Montreals Mile End. Beer lovers delight. Sweet selection. They had five stouts on draft so me and my girlfriend were in flavor heaven. If you're from out of town, be cool and come here.

The Montreal location is the original brewery, they have opened another spot up north. The one in Montreal is convenient for most locals and tourists. They have about 20 lines dedicated to their products and will sometimes have some of their products in bottles too. They make good beer but It's a small place and gets crowded real quick. They get a lot of younger people there, a lot of students but also an older crowd and it doesn't get so noisy you can't hear yourself. The food is what you might expect from a pub and the menu is pretty limited (pizza, grilled cheese, ect...). All and all it's a great location for afternoon drinks or an evening out but I wouldn't go for dinner
