To the veterans, the uninitiated and those of us whose memories are failing, Peche Day is a celebration of a flagship coffee stout from world class brewery Dieu du Ciel! The guest of honor and cause for celebration is the beer, "Peche Mortel", in it's original and natural state, a 10% imperial coffee stout. Peche mortel translates to English as 'mortal sin' and best describes the complex relationship of conflict, desire, passion and excitement this beef evokes. On Peche Day (late February-Early March) at select locations around the world we enjoy the pleasure in partaking a community tapping of the Peche Mortel in multiple ways.
Dieu du Ciel! started as a brew pub in Montreal in 1998 and underwent an expansion in 2006 to a second location in Saint-Jerome, Quebec (a north western suburb of Montreal.) This secondary location opened the possibility for broader distribution and is directly responsible for the bottled options we are lucky enough to find in limited quantities locally available. In early 2008 the location in Saint-Jerome opened fully as a public house and tasting room.
This Saturday, March 11th 2017, we will be opening at noon and celebrating our third straight year serving Peche Mortel, this year in SIX different ways:
Please stop in and regale and celebrate Peche Day with us, we're serving flights of a set tasting of 3 or full 8oz pours until we run out. Tickets not necessary, we are fully open for an all day party.

And while you are in town, you should also know that our lovely little hamlet Montpelier is doing something fairly unprecedented in their own right. Select shops are running a Cabin Fever Sale on Friday and Saturday this weekend and some of the downtown shops are running a 20% sale on their entire stores, with no restrictions. You can check it out HERE.
See you Saturday.
