I really liked this place. A laid back pub with a mix of punters..many watching the football when I was there. It looks like thereís 2 or 3 taps dedicated to local micros and the remainder from mostly continental Europe. Nice selection overall and the French beers were enjoyable. Well worth a visit.

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.

Nice little bar in beer deprived Paris. Normally 16 beers on tap, but only 10 when I visited. Nothing overly special on tap - nothing from France (!) when I visited. Prices are very reasonable and the service was friendly enough. Worth a stop when in Paris - very close to Gare du Nord.

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

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.

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.

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

Visited in 2012. Seemed like a regular Paris bar with nice selection of beer. They had couple of macros on tap, and the rest of 14 taps were divided between Belgian classics and imported crafts (De Molen, To Ol, Brewdog). Bottles advertised on blackboard were mostly Belgian classics. Worth visiting if you are nearby or if youíre into widely available Belgian beers. Prices were good.

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 thereís 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.

I went on a Thursday afternoon. Place is well located near Gare de Lyon. Ambiance was calm and music wasnít too loud. Funny mix of local and strangers of all ages. Some come for beer, other for food and some for betting (?). Servive was good and smiling. Selection is nice: 15 taps including De Molen, The Kernel and some nice french breweries. Small but decent bottle selection too. Value is decent and probably good for Paris (first place I rate from Paris, so Iím not sure about prices yet). Nice place that I will certainly revisit.
