I can’t believe I didn’t think to write about this before. At the time, it didn’t occur to me to take a photo until I was half done the glass…
Over a month ago I had the pleasure of attending the official launch party for Dieu du Ciel!‘s, a Montréal-based brewpub, products in Ontario at Bar Volo. I discovered Dieu du Ciel! through a friend (blurred in the background of the photo) who’d also introduced me to Bar Volo, previously the only place you could find these beers in Ontario.
I used to love beer. The problem is, since discovering this brewery, nothing else has been as good. I’ll occasionally still drop by the LCBO, but if they don’t have Peche Mortel or Corne du Diable in stock, I’m just not interested.
Those are the only two that are being bottled for Ontario currently. The LCBO is low at this particular moment. When they do have stock, they seem to primarily fill the Summerhill, Atrium at Bay, and St. Lawrence Market locations.
The brewery has an amazing variety of phenomenal beers. November is supposed to be bringing a selection to taps at the good beer bars in Toronto (in addition to Volo): C’est What?, The Rhino, Victory Cafe, Smokeless Joe’s, etc. One of the promised draughts is a cocoa-vanilla stout, Aphrodisiaque, the best beer I’ve had in my entire life.
I just wish I’d been aware of them in my previous trips to Montréal. I need to make a trip there just to visit the pub.
