We visited here on Saturday 15th November 2014 (in between our birthday’s day). We walked over the bridge to the west side to visit this place as well as taking in L’Abbattoir (modern art venue). This shop is situated on the main road leading to the Pont Neuf bridge, it is on the LH side as you walk toward the bridge to cross back over to the east. It is a mid sized oblong shaped unit with beers on racking on both sides and at counter at the rear, there is also a fridge on the RH side. The young chap/owner who served us was friendly, chatty and helpful he also when asked pointed us in the direction of a new bar in town that stocks a super range of beer (all bottles), but back to the shop. Choice was pretty good with a good range of Belgian beers, some UK and a decent French selection as well as some De Molen though I did think that price wise it was a little steep on a couple of offerings particularly De Molen. I picked up a French Impy stout and APA but can’t recall brewery. Much like the shop we visited on Friday night I did think that this could have carried a wider selection, there was certainly room to do so. However all told it was well laid out, easy to find and with a broad French selection most hardened beer fans should definately find something they’d not had.

Decent place with probably best selection of French craft beer in Toulouse. Didn’t spend much time in the shop so hard to judge too much, but basically good place.

Manu was very helpful. I wanted to try French Artisanale beers and he guided me through them improving my French at the same time! A rock and roll shop with a little attitude! A must for lovers of good beer, see the reviews below.

In what I think is the student part of town, this beer is very roomy, with only the walls covered in beers. Heavy on Belgians, but also some modern Europeans (De Molen, for example) and a decent amount of French stuff. That includes those with a classic French line up (blonde, blanche, brune) as well as the more experimental (Fleurac, Des Vignes). Prices are very fair! At firs tthe dude behind the counter was a bit bleak, but he was friendly when I finished making my selection. To be honest I was also running around with my phone in hand... Parking is not very easy but there are some paid spots right in front if you’re lucky. Good spot for the middle of France!

Very simple tiny shop, with no unuseful stuff, just beers ;-)
It would be difficult to have more choice in a small place like this, but I’m sure they will succeed if they do. However because of that it’s a high quality selection with many local products. If you dare ask some explanation, the guy tells you all that you wish.
A major good point for me is the prices, which are always reasonable, in the worst, and cheap sometimes ! :-)

Place with good choice, boss friendly and non-exorbitant price.
Lack of choice when we already drank a lot of beer

A nice bottle shop with friendly service (I think I spoke with the owner).
I got some lambic and some French and Belgian beers that I hadn’t tried before. Worth a visit!

Nice bottle shop, I have visited several times and have received good advice, especially on different French beers I haven’t tried before. Good selection of Belgians, Germans and French beers and the prices are reasonable. They also carry several local micros.
