Peche Mortel Day, Quebec City @ Cactus

On Saturday afternoon, I was in Quebec City at Cactus Bar for the annual Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel Celebration. Most bars had 3-5 variants on tap with 7 being available at the brewpub. To avoid the crowds in Montreal, we opted to hit Quebec City. This is a fantastic beer that I’ve only had in bottles so it was really great to have draft kegs among happy Canadians and some great poutine.

The Tap List was:

  1. Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel 2014 Regular
  2. Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel Édition Spéciale 2015
  3. Dieu du Ciel Péché Véniel
  4. Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel en Fût de Bourbon Américain (2011 Vintage)

Bourbon 2011 stole the show with Speciale 2015 being a close 2nd. Veniel was a 6% ABV drier version of Peche and was less sweet and too roasty for my liking. Overall, a great time!

Afterward, we hit a few more bars to rate beers and have some food:

Doesn’t that poutine make your mouth water?
