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, it’s 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 L’Abbaye des Saveurs.

A stone’s 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 bar well located in Le Vieux Lille. We went there for the opening on a Saturday. Place wasn’t too crowded, music wasn’t 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. There’s no bottle list though, but they seems to have a lot of fresh/changing stuff so it’s 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 can’t miss when in Lille: L’Abbaye des Saveurs.

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 don’t have a pricelist with the beers on tap.

Forgot to review , I do the job now ... Visited November 2012 , the place is pretty nice tiny and cosy.. Easy to find in a nice narrow street in the city centre .. They sell 12 beers on tap from North France and Belgium mostly ,in perfect condition so it’s a very good place where to sample the " biere de garde" ... I chatted with a guy who spoke English so I learned a lot about French beers and he already known some of Italian beer ..a very friendly place with passionate staff and good and not easy to find French beer on tap..

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. It’s a nice beer bar and definitely a place I would visit again when in Lille, but doesn’t have the kind of selection that warrants the scores given on ratebeer.

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. Don’t forget to check out the vintage list, definitely worth to look at! I’ll be returning soon!
