Webshop that offers only beers from small French brewers, which is much appreciated. Mont Saleve, Frappadinges and the likes but also very unknown ones. Pretty nice selection, although the categorization on the site between blonde, blanche, rousse and amber isn’t really useful. I selected basically all beers I hadn’t rated, but unfortunately got contacted because some beers weren’t available (in contrast to what the site stated) and offered to provide replacements (and 1 extra free beer). Unfortunately I didn’t expect half my order (18 beers) were not on stock so I got half my order of beers I didn’t select, 10 of which I did already rate. Good stuff, mind you, but still. Another thing is the delivery. No delivery to your house, okay, but after picking a point to pick up my box, they suggested to change the pick up location. The available addresses were all random unknown places, so I just picked one close(ish). Turns out it’s a small very odd African shop with Internet access, African dvds and customers drinking beer while chatting to the owners. After some confusing I got my package from the (friendly) owner. Beers were very well packed, no complaints there. Still a bit of a douce overall, lots of bad luck maybe. I suggest the website picks a more reliable delivery service like GLS and perhaps then I’ll order again.
