Nice small/medium place well located in Paris (not too far from "Hotel de ville" subway stop). Simon - the owner - is a great guy and he’s really passionate and knowledgeable about beers. Nice selection including a lot of French beers (the best place for French beers) as well as a good variety of Cantillon, Upright, Jester King, The Kernel and many others. Great vintage list too (with good prices). Simon offered us a taster of a french beer while we were shopping and a good limited US sour the next time I went. Prices are very good for Paris (they are a tad high by North American standards, but really good for the area). Nice glassware too. Definitely the best bottle shop in Paris (and a world-class one)! + bring some nice beers to trade to Simon, you won’t regret it!

Extremely knowledgeable and attentive owner runs a tight and busy one-man operation, giving hands-on tips and advice to beer tourists and local homebrewing beginners alike. Finely crafted selection, methodically presented and displayed. Very happy to find a few new Le Paradis and Vallée du Giffre brews here. Steep median prices for most FR 25/33cl bottles, starting at €3 and quickly rising over €5 for new ImpStouts which I would hate to have to rely on as a local, but a casual beer tourist can still shrug off as the price of couleur locale (especially when moving north over the border, where beers this quality go for 30-50% of these prices.)

First impression with this place is the owner is ridiculously passionate about beer and has no problems at all explaining in detail about whatever beer you’re interested in. He also speaks English & Italian fluently. The shop is very much focused on independent artisan French beer, but has a very good hand-picked selection of beers from Germany, UK, Belgium & Norway. Prices are around 4 euros per beer, which I kind of expected for Paris. Just wish I had more room in my bag to stuff more in! Also sells home-brew equipment.

Small shop held by a real beer geek (Simon). The selection is smaller than some other stores, but with a great variety and only top notch products.

Probably the best service I have had in a beer store, ever. Both the gents working there were treasures. The selection is wonderfully curated and great, all killer, no filler. Go here, it’s a must visit.

Most definitely THE place to buy beer in Paris. Super-nice vibe in the place, with cozy wooden shelves and all. Amazing store-owners/sellers, who, you can tell immediately, live and breath everything beer. Very nice selection of French micros + some real gems from Europe and the States. Those gems do come at price, but hell... Can’t wait to visit the spot again.

Dropped in on Wednesday 24/7/13. Warmly greeted by 2 exceptionally friendly workers who started speaking in English as soon as they realised I speak terrible French. Talked for a good 20 minutes about beer before I finally started having a look around! Walked out with French, Belgian and American beers shortly after. Great guys running a great store - prices were very reasonable considering the Parisian location. Definitely worth a checkout.
