Very good spot. Bottle list seemed a bit lackluster, but the tap list, though small, boasted some great options at very good prices. Highlights included Nogne O Imperial Stout at EUR 5 and Drooie Chica Americana IPA at about EUR 4.50. Very pleasant ambiance, nice bartender (English-speaking), free wi-fi (password: exss2lyon). From the outside this place looks like all the other street cafes, but I think the beer options here are fairly unique. Certainly a venue worth seeking out for a good beer in Paris.

up and coming bar with about 12 taps and 12 bottles, best selection I’ve seen in the city, central location. Worth checking out in beer starved Paris.

Small place with big station clock inside, just across metro station Gare de Lyon. Most of the people here come to pay lottery or something similar, not much beer fans although there’s an interesting selection of beers on tap (probably monthly rotated but not sure). Heavy and loud hip hop music without any representative of a kind inside.

A real find, recommended by Simon at La Cave a Bulles. Fine selection of mostly Belgian brews, appropriate glassware and decent prices. If you are close to Gare de Lyon, this is definitely worth a stop.

A hidden gem. Rarities on tap and in bottle, from french and international breweries. Low prices for Paris. Nice choice of music and attentive staff. Go there!

Homey pub, great staff, who are knowledgable and helpful about the beer selection - the owner took it over from his dad and seems be to very passionate about craft beer. Selection is heavy Belgian, but the owner told me he is adding a couple taps just for French beer. Friendly customers. Good prices. Nothing spectacular, but as mentioned in beer starved Paris, this is a great place.

Imagine a huge city without much of a beer culture and then finding this germ. Not a huge selection but 12 - 15 beers on tap isn’t bad in such situation. Prices are very acceptable for Paris standards. Mostly craft beer on tap and some crap beer (Amstel, Heineken). Very friendly staff. The exterior and interior have a very much Paris wine-bar atmosphere but luckily they serve beer.

Somewhat shabby ambiance. Some interesting beers on tap, including nogne o imperial stout, and brew dog in bottles - also heineken, amstel, kronenbourg and desperados !!! Not a beer destination but worth dropping by if you are in the neighborhood

What a funny place... Conveniently located next to the Gare de Lyon train and metro station, the public is a mix of gamblers (PMU, betting on horses I believe) of all ages, social standings and sex plus locals coming in for food. Oh and the odd beer lover like me. Owner (I think he was) offered me to try some sips of the French micros. Much appreciated and I had a glass of both because they were tasty! Also some nice Belgians and even Scandinavian offerings. Got some free peanuts as well. Prices were reasonable to low, especially for Paris, at only 3 euro for the Brasserie La Paradis brews. Internet wifi password ’exss2lyon’ still works (thanks for Leighton’s review!). Didn’t try the food but it looked simple and tasty. Even got a free sample of To Ol AFTER I paid! Most were drinking coffee and filling in their betting forms though... What an odd and funny place.

Weird! Given the tap choices and prices this place would have a claim as the city’s best specialist beer bar but the vibe and cliental is likely to keep many away. Rough as guts bar that services the local ’hang around the train station’ types and low brow punters. Service is good. Beers of interest, at the time of visit, included St Bernadus blond, Bourgogne de Flanders and St Feuillien saison. Pay about eur 2.50 to 3.00 at the bar.
