Reach the Lafayette Gourmet at the floor; a posh and hyper-expensive deli market, with every kind of speciality food, confused, kitsch, with no soul.
There are two corners: the wine cellar (mead, ice cider) and the supermarket (beer, cider). This place can’t compete with the best beer shops in Paris (Cave à Bulles...), but it offers some real rarity, therefore worth mentioning.
Said so, I have to admit that I find the price of ice ciders so ridicously high that I didn’t buy anything:
-Face Cachée de la Pomme Neige, 27€, 20cl
-Face Cachée de la Pomme Neige, 38.30€, 37cl
-Face Cachée de la Pomme Eternelle, 53.50€
-Face Cachée de la Pomme Frimas, 70.60€
-Face Cachée de la Pomme Degel 04, untagged
Then, there are some good Trappist beers, one mead (Plessis) and a couple of new ciders.

Visited in early May 2011. Well, i tend to agree with other reviewers: a few French micros, nothing realy good, Belgian standards, Moosehead (come on guys), a bit overpriced (like everything in Paris). Next time, I’ll avoid (unless your colleagues want to go shop and you dont have any time).

Not as many beers now. They have lots of stuff from Uberach in Strasbourg, but not much else of interest. Ciders also much fewer than I heard, with no ice cidres to be found. I wouldn’t even have bothered if La Cave a Bulles had not been closed.

Wasn’t to impressed as I was more impressed by the entire building with it’s theme they had back than.
The selection is not that good, as mentioned before, some Belgian stuff and some other local things but all in all absolutely not that interesting. And pretty expensive for some of the things they sell. Wouldn’t recommend this.

Many different beers as one could expect in a large supermarket that is supposed to have a lot of specialties. Way better selection than a carrefour, and there are micro brews like Uberach and other beers. But mainly your average Belgian beers.

Small selection of mostly standard Belgium beers, not many French beers and the prices pretty expensive.

Interesting selection, but not large enough. It’s a big shop, so the ambiance is more a like a supermarket one.

This is a poor excuse for an "artisanal" beer shop - in fact after this place you’d do well to head over to the Great Canadian Pub and drown your sorrows, at least you can get Moosehead over there! All Lafayette stocks is a few Uberachs and trappists, and some of the more obscure ciders. If your wife is in here poking around you can waste some time in the beer section but otherwise it’s a waste of your time in Paris. Go to Bootlegger for Belgians or Cave à Bulles for French brews, but not this place for either.

I don’t know if I missed all the beers mentioned on the RB page, but there were somthing like 10 interesting beers on the shelf when visited (aug 2010). Some Rocheforts, St Bernardus 8 and some Lindemans bottles. Visited in a downish mood after realizing all good beer stores in paris were closed for summer vacation.
