Very very interesting beer shop. They have lot of French and Belgian beers and rare beers but also some very special products such as Mikkeller beers. The sellers do know they job, they speech in English for the strangers, and like to help people. The place is well situated and easy to find (behind Beaubourg - Musée d’Art Moderne). Lot of home brewers are going there so nice place to meet peoples.

Best place in Paris for bottles of good beer. The owner is super nice and very helpful (and he speaks English!). He really loves what he does and it shows. Small store, yes, but what it contains is mighty impressive. A little tricky to get to (it’s on a street that’s more like an alley) but it’s worth it to search it out and find it. Located around some pretty good bars, too. A must for any Paris visit. If you’re in Paris and you don’t visit Simon’s store, well, you suck. Highly recommended without reservation. Oh, and bring American beers with you. Simon loves to sample. Yes, he’s worth the effort.

This is the place for beer in Paris. Great selection of beers, mainly from France but he had several from Belgium and some from other European countries, even a few from the USA.
Simon (owner) was very helpful and passionate about beer and knows his stuff. He asked what I liked and pointed out which ones are the best for the styles I like. He knew I was traveling back soon so he bubble wrapped the beers and packed them for me, they all made it OK.
Don’t miss stopping here if your in Paris. I’ll be coming back, and bringing a few beers to trade with next time.
My only regret was that I didn’t have enough space to take it all back home with me.

Excellent service! A really nice owner who speaks english, I asked him for recommendations and he gave me the tour of his shop with information on all the beers. Really nice to come into a place and be greeted as you were a old friend. Good selection of beer, a lot of french of course, which I think would be hard to find anywhere else - at least in such a concentrated way. Well worth a visit.

La Cave à Bulles is the place. Large choice of french beers among the most origninals and helpful owner who knows how to communicate his passion. Don’t miss it. You will be able to find top beers as La Bavaisienne, La Libertine or L’Angelus.

Kind of shocking that a place this good exists in Paris, though given the range of French beer here its existence is definitely warranted. Beautifully set out with a range of WAY more French beers than I ever knew existed. But it’s the guy who runs the place (Simon?) that really makes it. I asked him for recommendations and I think he eventually recommended every single beer on the shelves. Love the passion. Don’t expect a quick visit! Prices are excellent, and Belgian beers on the quality-not-quantity principle. Quality of the beers themselves were variable - some amazing, some pretty dire. Can’t pin it on the shop though.

The service was really excellent and the shop owner told me a lot of details about the beers in english (and also a little bit in german). Great selection of French beers and quite rare stuff. All bottles were wrapped in bubble plastic as he recognized that I will transport the bottles by plane. 2.7 € for a 0,33 l bottle was good value and a nice talk was included.

One of the top 5 beer shops in Europe. Freindly and personal service, with words of advice on every bottle in the store. This is not a place where they have to cram in as many beers as possible, rather it is a place to get the best French beers available. (There are a few Belgians as well). Simon runs the shop, and he takse pride in what he’s doing. Remeber to bring along a good bottle of beer from home, he’s happy to swap with you. I had all my bottles bubble wrapped at no extra charge. And the prices are very reasonable.

Simon is a great guy, he packs stuff for the plane for you if you need that. A wild selection of French beer and a solid selection of Belgian Beers. The man has a passion for French beer that is pretty insane. CONGRATULATIONS SIMON ON THE BIRTH OF YOUR TWINS!

Place was finally open when I passed by this afternoon - it’s run by one guy who speaks great english but entertained me as I fumbled through my French. Great explanations and advice, really good selection of artisanal beers from across France. One complaint I could make is that it seemed -too- eclectic - anything that you could find in a local supermarket was nowhere to be found. But it really is a "must" for beer geeks passing through Paris, and you won’t be disappointed if you’re curious about artisanal beers from France. This is easily the best place in Paris to find out about them.
