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.

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!

A not that bad bar in Paris, with an interesting choice of beers comparing to most of the bar in Paris. The proximity with the "Gare de Lyon" is also a plus.

Across from Gare de Lyon: great for people watching. Folks inside were betting on horse races. Great selection relative to Paris, though only one French craft on tap, the rest were reputable but not exactly rare European beers. Service was very slow but polite, food was served hot. With the Euro where it is, prices were comparable to US. Considering the (lack of) competition, this is probably one of the top beer bars in town.

L’express de Lyon probably has one of the best tap selections in Paris - with good prices to boot! Unfortunately, there weren’t really any French beers on tap (although you have difficulties finding that anywhere in Paris). The owner was friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend checking it out!

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.

Great little cafe bar overlooking the Gare de Lyon station. Grabbed a chair on the pavement and watched the world go buy at 10.30am. Tap selection skewed towards Belgian ales, with Craig Allan & Brew Dog adding some variety. Staff was helpful and friendly enough. Beers seemed very reasonably priced, even when sitting outside.

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.

cibo veramente ottimo, patate fritte da 10 e lode. selezione di birre alla spina con i soliti classici (chouffe, leffe). non guardate solo il menu, quando sono uscito ho visto che avevano attaccato anche una Punk IPA. Se avete fame e siete da quelle parti non cercate altri posti fermatevi all’Express, davanti alla gare de lyon (Paris).

A very typical parisian place... not really a "beer bar" but they have a good selection ( 12 draft beers an d 20 bottle). good service and good location. and they try to become one of the best beer place in Paris
