This place lives up to its reputation. Of course, it has ten very solid taps and a bunch of interesting bottles. But above all, it has a great vibe, very friendly and helpful staff, and friendly locals. Definitely worth a look. I enjoyed sharing some beers with Alex of Brouwers Verzet, thanks!

Visited in 2011. As the name suggests, itís a very small bar, just an elongated room along the counter; maybe too much "dirty looking"; they have 12 taps, 3 or 4 French micros and the rest Belgian; although they may have a special week with guest taps (such as Mikkeller); about 100 bottles, again with mostly Belgian beers, including many Trappists (no Westvleteren) and other good ones (no rarities, apart from Schorsch 31, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, Sink the Bismark); also some 10 French beers from micros; appreciated for not carrying macro shit; I hope with time they can increase the number of French beers. The guy knows his beers. Same owner as the LíAbbaye des Saveurs.

A stoneís throw from the Cathedral. A small bar with a mainly young (<30) clientele with knowledgeable bar staff and a good attitude. Manages to highlight local brews, extreme beers, awkward-to-source and others. This has to be THE place to drink beer in Lille. Very little dross. The soundtrack is not going to win an Oscar but apart from that a great lttle place.

Nice place. Staff was friendly but no English. Great selection. Some micro French breweries and pretty special other beers. Like 4 Mikkeller beers on tap.

A great place to have one of the rare beers on tap (always rotating) or one of the special bottles. Nice atmosphere with a lot of beer minded people. Donít forget to check out the vintage list, definitely worth to look at! Iíll be returning soon!

Fairly small bar with a mainly local fairly young crowd. Pretty busy (on a Sunday/holiday weekend). Varied tap selection and a fridge of interesting bottles. Itís a nice beer bar and definitely a place I would visit again when in Lille, but doesnít have the kind of selection that warrants the scores given on ratebeer.

Went there on the evening they presented the Brussels Beer Project. 3 tasters (2 x 25cl and 1 x 12.5cl) for 10 euro. Lots of other cool stuff on draught and in the fridge! Friendly bartenders that know there beers. Understandable, but annoying, they donít have a pricelist with the beers on tap.

Nice bar well located in Le Vieux Lille. We went there for the opening on a Saturday. Place wasnít too crowded, music wasnít too loud and there was Rugby on tv, so it was quite nice. Interior is beautiful. Service was friendly. There was 12 taps, including Cantillon Vigneronne and a couple of other very nice beers, including one from Struise. Decent bottle selection too. Thereís no bottle list though, but they seems to have a lot of fresh/changing stuff so itís understandable. Price are good (Vigneronne was 5 Euros for 25 cl) on some stuff and a little high on other, but in general the price are really fair. A great bar, and just few steps away from the other place you canít miss when in Lille: LíAbbaye des Saveurs.

Not hard to find & close to anything central in Lille. This place looked way more rundown than expected. Non-matching partially broken chairs that appear to have been reclaimed from a high school, totally worn wood with varnish coming off, paint flaking on the walls, every piece of wood has marks,Ö This is a bit closer to two shootings away from being a heroin den than charming. The place nicely filled out with people & they were playing the entire ďMaster of PuppetsĒ album which was quite nice. +/- 12 beers on tap, indicated on a board. Tap list was very interesting & varied, 3 or so solid French beers, one De Molen, one Brewdog, one Haandbrygerriet plus some nice Belgian fare. Very well chosen list because it covers all bases from 2.9 % ABV to 15.2 % ABV, saison, IPA, barley wine etc. Great stuff there. Sadly there was no beer list for the bottled beer or we didnít get one because I see other reviews mentioning a vintage list. For bottles I just looked what they had in the fridge which was fine, a list would have been nice because apparently they have some stuff in the cellar & I am not psychic. The stuff in the fridge looked interesting, mix of very nice offerings from BE / NL / FR / DE / UK etc. Found some interesting FR beers which are not in the majority but France isnít much of beer country so that is understandable. Interesting to see no Mont SalŤve here which I think is one of the very few truly great French brewers. The selection isnít the biggest but they had plenty of interesting beers which were new to me which is great & the beers that they had which I had already had, in many cases I wouldnít mind drinking them all night long. As usual Quality > Quantity. Prices were good and very reasonable & service was good by BE standards. This is obviously head and shoulders from anything that you would expect beer-wise in France but than again this is not that far from the Belgian border. Beer selection would be quite impressive in Belgium as well. It would be nice if they refurbished it because I wasnít sure if I needed to do drugs here or drink craft beer by the looks of it. It is possibly that I am just being a cry-baby since all of the regulars and plenty of the visitors are perfectly fine with the way it looks.
