I think the place I ever got the best service in a beer store was in La Cave à Bulles in Paris.
I went there end of April and I don’t regret it.
The selection that interested me was the French, but you will also find a good international selection of international breweries, if you desire.
The staff will ask you what you like, and try to find a nice selection for you, based on that. I am starting to dig into the beers I brought home, and they got it right!
When I told them I had to go home by plane, they made a little convenient travelbox for me (they wrapped the beer up), and it even came with a handle so that I could bring it to my hotel safely. Excellent beer store.

L’ambiente è semplicemente spettacolare, il servizio di una competenza quasi commovente. Selezione non amplissima ma piena di ricercatezze, biere de garde e qualche belga. Un posto da 10 e lode.

This is a bottle shop for beer lovers. The owner is friendly, speaks English and is happy to chat with beer lovers and homebrewers alike. While you can’t drink buy to drink on premises, there are beers in the fridge you can purchase, and they’ll gladly give you to-go cups if you need them. His stock runs the gamut from Old Foghorn to Cantillon and almost everything in between.

The owner, Simon, makes this store a must see destination for any beer loving visitors to Paris. When I asked about Bretagne beers, he was quick to recommend a couple of great beers by Lancelot, an IPA, and a bier noire that was brewed with buckwheat. He also recommended a triple brewed by Fleurac
that was comparable to comercially brewed Belgians. He had glassware for almost all of the French beers. Most impressively, he recommended another store across town, Brewberry...now, that’s a beer lover!

So I guess you should go there if you have the chance. Please remember before you go to France that the guy there will trade you American beer for French beer. And there is perhaps all the beers in France at the store.
The only problem is that French beer is pretty bad. Outside of novelty, there is really no reason to drink it. So just go once for tourism’s sake.

This shop is definitely world-class. The selection is heavy on French beers, most that I’ve never heard of. The owner - an extremely friendly guy - helped me pick out a selection. (He was bummed out I didn’t bring any beers from England as he loves Harveys and trading beers in general.) I’ve had one of the recommended beers and it was great. The shop itself is lovely, very neat and nicely laid out, on a hip street in central Paris. The prices are not cheap, with the least expensive bottles 33cl at EUR 3.10 each. Given the outstanding selection, high quality, top location and fine service, though, the prices don’t seem that bad. Certainly THE beer spot in Paris.

If you are looking for beer in Paris, this is it. The guy running the store is cool, loves beer, and loves talking about beer. The selection is good. If you can, bring some beer by and share it!

A nice little store close to the Pompidou. Brilliant selection of French beer, some really rare stuff that I haven’t seen anywhere else (except at the Abbaye des Saveurs in Lille and only some), specials, one-offs. Not much foreign stuff (basic Cantillons, some Meantime beers, etc.), but who cares + the cool guy running the store (friendly, talkative and as knowledgeable as any of us as Rastacouere mentioned earlier) mentioned they’ll be getting some De Molens and Mikkelers if I understood correctly (and some USA stuff too). The fridge they have has some beers that aren’t necessarily on the shelves, so check that out as well. Not the cheapest place though, but I’d rather pay 3 Euros for a 0.33 of some potentially good or great very rare beer than 7 Euros for a pint of crap at some other place. In retrospective, I should’ve shared some of the beer I was carrying from Belgium and had to get rid off because it couldn’t fit in my luggage with the owner, not the people at the hostel. Next time maybe :). DO NOT MISS!

Probably one of the best beer shops in Paris. Excellent selection of French and Belgian beers, also some British and American brews (at exorbitant prices). Pleasant place, set up in the center of Paris. Simon, the owner, is quite passionate. Actually he’s so passionate that he can sometimes appears as elitist or even annoying.
