After spending a week in Paris enjoying wine and shaking my head at the sad selection of beer available in every cafe/bar/restaurant that I went to (well, with very few exceptions), it was nice to walk in here and chat about beer with someone who is passionate about it. The selection is mostly French beer, with some Belgians (I was happy about that -- it’s hard to get Cantillon at home). The owner is very friendly, speaks good English (if you need it) and was happy to recommend other places in town to go (there are too few options in town for competition to be an issue).

Excellent store near the Centre Pompidou. Been there 4 times now, and can’t wait to go back. Simon, the owner, is as knowledgeable as he is passionate about beer, and particularly passionate about French beer. As a result, the store’s main focus is French beer. While this may limit selection, given the seemingly révolution happening in the French beer world, La Cave à Bulles may become a serious centre of the universe for beer sooner rather than later. Very helpful for air travellers like me in wrapping the beer for the trip. He loves to trade too!

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,, 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!
