Visited Carrefour Steenvorde, a few miles from Cassell, Friday afternoon 22/03/13.
Medium sized supermarket with a beer aisle.
Maybe 25 to 30 or so bottles, largely French plus some Belgian offerings. Mainly pale lagers, premium lagers and a few beire de gardes, not much of a range in terms of differing styles. Prices fairly reasonable.
Service adequate - just an average supermarket range akin to a Tesco in the UK. The food and wine most definately edged the beer!

Been to a few, but mostly to the one in Ségny near the border to Switzerland. OK selection of French and Belgian beers. Since prices are low it is a good place to stock up on "favorites". Generally won’t find anything too exciting, though.

Interesting way to merge a bunch of place ratings, but it makes sense. Carrefour can be anything from higher end and enjoyable to cramped, dumpy, and dusty. But they do sell a lot of beer, wine, and even cider. They have the cheapest prices for buying cases of decent French, German, and Belgian beer. But most importantly, they have house brand beer, wine, and cider. So you can definitely get some ticks from just stopping in here. You can also buy singles of anything as far as I know. Also, some higher end Carrefours like Carrefour Market will sell incredible pre made food including some of the best tiramisu you will ever have. No joke.

Probably biggest supermarket in France with a gorgeous styled interior, looks like a market. Food selection, especially cheese, is huge and you do get some nice beers and also quite a few special ciders.

Been to a couple of Carrefours in the North Western region of France recently and was pretty surprised by there selection.
Ok, it is not a beer store, but they have a nice selection of beers and ciders (and of course wines, spirits, soft drinks, food, etc. etc.)
They have a lot of crappy stuff (imperial pils and malt liquors), Belgian beers (Duvel, Leffe, etc.), Ciders (Bretagne and Normandie).
But also local stuff, from local micro and macro breweries. Got some nice micro stuff for very affordable prices, that’s a big plus.
Decent prices for this overall a bit more expensive supermarket for all their beers, ciders, wines and liquors.
I don’t think the Carrefour is such a bad place for beer, specially when there isn’t much else in town to get some beer.
Wouldn’t mind hitting some others when in France again.

It’s a supermarket chain!!! Carrefour is the second largest store chain in the world after wal-mart. How is this on ratebeer??!
Anyway, if you don’t get raped in a dark corner of one of their sticky, poorly maintained stores, you can sometimes find all three Chimays and a few other ok Belgium beers. The only upside is that they are the cheapest place to buy Chimay in Paris, or maybe the world, for all I know.

When in France, your best bet for decent beers is likely to be a supermarket such as Carrefour. Carrefour do a decent range of French and Belgian beers, and will usually stock local beers. They have a fondness for the Normandy/Brittany beers, and shops all around the country will often have those. If you’re looking for the French microbreweries, the best place is Carrefour. For certain, Carrefour is better than the local bar or Irish pub!

This is a supermarket in the heart of the city center and straight up the street about maybe 6 blocks from the train station. They have a nice selection of produce, meats, cheeses, a couple kinds of glassware, liqour, bread, and wine. Their beer selection is not too bad with some things I haven’t seen elsewhere in the short time I’ve been in France. At least one of the check-out ladies speaks English.
