a good place to eat and find a classic pub in Paris. Not a bad beer selection

The list of bottles they serve is perhaps the only reason this is even on RateBeer -- except for perhaps the name of the place. With a couple dozen Belgians on bottle and 5 boring and already widely available pils/Belgians on tap you are not going to impress anyone. One exception though, and one I might actually stop here again if I am stuck in the arrondissement here: Flying Dog bottles for a somewhat reasonable price for Paris (7,50 euro for Snake Dog and 8,50 for Raging Bitch). Brew Dog too but those were very overpriced (Hardcore IPA for 10 euro). Service was disinterred and although the food looked actually not too bad we didnít try any. Perhaps most typical of the place, though, was their home pilsner called Mellsbrau. A new tick? After asking it turned out as a randomly branded bullshit dump-price pils... I couldnít even be bothered tasting it or adding it to RateBeer.

Sought this place out yesterday and there was really nothing I hadnít try before on the menu, and the seasonal tap was empty. Moved along...

Average Parisian beer bar. Nice selection of the widely available Belgian beers along with at least 1 beer from many other countries. Although its dubious listing the Mongozo as African...

locale piuttosto brutto con musica dancehall moderna (e francese!!) a volume irritante. Ed Ť qui che prendo la prima sÚla: nella lista delle birre francesi, leggermente piý nutrita del solito, trovo una bottiglia da 75cl di un presunto micro delle fiandre da dividere con la donna (12Ä: vale la pena siccome le 33cl hanno i soliti prezzi). Si chiama Rince Cochon e quando arriva un simpatico maialino mi sorride dallíetichetta; la giro e scopro..che la fa Huyghe. Tristezza, ovviamente Ť uno schifo (ale acquosa da 8%, dolciona e alcool); per rifarmi, prendo una seconda birra dopo il pasto: si chiama Duchesse Anne ed Ť di un produttore bretone (Lancelot) credo di medie dimensioni (ho trovato altre sue birre e mi sembra fra i piý distribuiti insieme a Annoeullin). Sa di lievito; vabeh, torniamo al Pompidou.
Da mangiare le salades erano a prezzi standard (10/12Ä), ma abbastanza ricche (nella mia cíera una coscia díanatra intera). Birre belghe/tedesche le solite, meno perÚ che in altri bar.
Serata no birra, giretto a Montmartre.

Decent beer bar in Paris, which is always something noteable. Has about 24 bottles available and 5 beers on tap, including delirium. But otherwise itís a very typical sports bar, very average prices for Paris.

March 2008. The atmosphere was more like an average Irish Pub setup, but wasnít overy concerned about the look of the place as I was hunting for beer.
Out of the three beer bars I visited, this was my least favorite. However, it is by no means a bad place and you can find a few decent brews.

Decent pub atmosphere, courteous service, and a beer selection that is slightly better than most Paris bars. Cool music played when I was there (Howliní Wolf? In France? Yep!) Nice place to stop in between Au Trappiste and La Cave A Bulles.

I visited this hostelry during my crawl of 22nd November 2008.
Around halfway up Rue St Denis, it lies in a fairly touristy area of the city but nevertheless it attracts a completely mixed clientele of all age groups, creeds and backgrounds.
Visitors to the Hallís Beer Tavern will find a long, narrow, cavernous pub with plenty of rough exposed brickwork adding to the cave feel. The bar is on the right as you enter and tables for diners and drinkers form an aisle down the cave. Lighting levels comfortable, and the pub had been tastefully decorated for Christmas without overdoing things. There is an outside seating area in the front providing around 10 tables, sheltered beneath a tarpaulin. Television screens were displaying sport with the sound off while I was here.
There are eight draught beers available including a novelty beer "Desperados" with a peculiar tequila flavour which indeed was an acquired taste! I quickly retreated to the comfort zone of De Koninck which actually was a good cadence to the session here. Also available were Guinness and Carling - I include these for completeness of review only!
A very busy bar and kitchen here, food quality appeared impressive judging by the fullness of plates leaving the kitchen and the emptiness of those returning. A blackboard showed sandwiches available at between 4 and 5 euro for those not wishing to dine big time.
Although not much English was spoken except between a group of US vacationers, I found sitting at the bar the best place to be this evening and a few choice words of French worked wonders especially when asking for the hoppiest beer available!
The Hallís Beer Tavern merits a visit, even if only as part of a crawl through central Paris - 70 awarded with this review
