Brewery Spotlight: Dieu du Ciel!, Montreal, Canada

Since I am visiting two breweries in New Jersey this weekend (Spellbound Brewing and Village Idiot Brewing Company), I decided to have a new feature here – brewery spotlights! These posts will be short musings of breweries and/or brewpubs that I have visited!

First up, one of my favorites, Dieu du Ciel! in Montréal, Canada. Dieu du Ciel! (loosely translated to God in the sky! or Oh my God!) is a small brewery based outside Montréal. The microbrewery is located in St. Jérôme (which I have never visited). However, Dieu du Ciel! runs a small brewpub in the Mile End area of Montréal.   There it is – blurry picture!

While a small Montréal brewery, Dieu du Ciel! bottles, exports and is well recognized in the beer community and non-beer community, especially there for their Rosée de Hibiscus, which is an wheat beer made with Hibiscus flower (in my opinion not their best or most interesting work). Aside from the Hibiscus beer, most of Dieu du Ciel!’s beers are quite strong, with lots of 7% + stouts and IPAs on the menu. The quality is very good and I generally enjoy most of Dieu de Ciel!’s beers!

At the brewpub, Dieu du Ciel! offers about 15 or so of its beers on tap and a few wines by the glass. The menu is written on a chalkboard and frequently changes. When I was there last I had a rosée ice cider! Very interesting, and very Montréal! For beer, you can order a variety of sizes and some bar snacks are available. The brewpub itself is fairly small, but I have never had a problem finding a table. It’s a very casual atmosphere and a fun place to go with friends!
