The breweries, timetable, condition and offer will remain the same. Since the capacity is less, we have decided to change the system of bracelet and all included for a system of tokens.
In any case, we will be glad for having you all in the event, we are going to give our best to make sure this change is an improvement.
We apologize for this inconvinient, which we coulnd’t avoid to happen.

Dieu du Ciel!: Waiting is over! (II)No Comments
Dear readers, we come back with Dieu du Ciel! Today we have good news for you, the waiting is over: habemus beers!
Today we want Hoy os presentamos los cervezotes llegados del otro lado del océano:
- Moralité 6.9% (American IPA):
This beer is brewed with a daring quatity of Simcoe, Citra and Centennial hops. The dry finish is highly aromatic and slightly resinous, invoking tropical fruits atop dominant hop bitterness.
- Blanche du Paradis 5.5% (Belgian Wheat Ale):
An unfiltered wheat beer brewed with coriander and Curaçao orange peel. A delicate and refreshing bouquet of citrus and spice floats atop toasted bread aromas, accompanied by a subtle touch of acidity provided by the wheat.
- Disco Soleil 6.5% (Kumquat IPA):
Refreshing kumquat immerses the palate with citrus and tropical fruit, while biting hops interplay with bready malt, together with a final touch of acidity from the kumquat zest.
- Rosée d’hibiscus 5.9% (Belgian Hibiscus wheat):
A delicate wheat beer with a floral and lightly acidic character. Its beautiful pink colour comes from the hibiscus flowers used in the brewing process. A perfumed aroma invokes fresh pink grapefruit.
- Dernière Volonté (7%) Belgian IPA
It presents a complex, floral nose with boozy undertones, accompanied by fruity and slightly malty aromas. A powerful bouquet of hops is also immediately apparent. It presents strong flavours of spice and citrus, followed by an assertively hoppy finish.
Here you have these new beers, each more curious and interesting than the other, We hope you like them as much as we do. If you behave well, we will bring you more beers.
Dieu du Ciel!: history and curiosities (I)No Comments
Dear readers, who read us with burning enthusiasm! After catching your attention with the 1st Mini Fest at Chinaski Lavapiés, we want to surprise you again. Today, we introduce you to a Canadian brewery: Dieu du Ciel!
The reason why we write a blog post about this Canadian brewery is… (drum roll) …¡¡¡They will be with us soon in flesh and bones and bottles!!! Today we are going to tell you about the deeds of this brewery, so you get to know them a bit.
Our story begins in 1991 at Jean-François’ home, who developed his passion and interest in beer and brewing as a career by brewing experiments. But it wouldn’t be until 1995 when Jean-François met Stephane Ostiguy during a research project at the Armand-Frappier Institute. And voilá! On the eleventh of September, 1998, they open a pub called Dieu du Ciel! In Montreal (Quebec, Canada). Here you have some photos of the pub, so you can imagine it:
Since then, they have been only growing, creating Dieu Du Ciel Microbrery Inc. Located at St. Jerome (Quebec, Canada). Then, they unite forces with Luc Boivin (an electro-mechanic with impressive home-brewing) and Isabelle Charbonney (marketing). In St. Jerome, they started brewing their own beer, which as first served on 2008. They continue growing to this day, developing their passion for the craft beer and sharing it with their Community and through international expansion as well.
Their selection of craft beers is quite wide: from Sentinelle (Kölsch, a german Pale Ale), Moralité (American IPA), their Imperial Coffe Stout Péché Mortel or one of their most cheered beers Aphrodisiaque (Cocoa & Vanilla Stout).
Well, enough for today. Yes, you read that right. We have not finish yet, we have more wonders to tell you about these Canadian. See you in the next post.
Chronicle: 1st Mini Fest of International Craft Beer at Chinaski LavapiésNo Comments
First of all, THANKS to all people who participated and enjoyed as much as we did during the fest.
Today’s post is dedicated to all that happened in the fest. All the brewers invited to Chinaski Lavapiés delivers a speech about the brewery. This way, we discovered some curious things, for instance the brewery’s name of Vento Forte was chosen by Andrea’s mother ¡Bravo per la mamma! Also, Oud Beersel was about to close after four generations belonging to the same family, but Tea’s husband bought the brewery and continue brewing lambic beers. Thank goodness! While Elliot was telling as about Höp Cream’s ice creams, we couldn’t stop our mouths from watering, did you? Here you have some photos of the speeches:
Of course, let’s see the delicatessen, ambrosias and atmosphere of the fest.
As you can see, we had a lot of fun and we are glad of having shared this experience with all of you.
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. See you son or see you in the next fest! (or the next post 😉).
