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.

The French kilt wearer’s society event was in store when we visited! Around them more different French beers than I’ve seen in one place before. Owner was really helpful, friendly. He must know all the beers in shop well, and was able to suggest to preference.

When in Rome do as the Romans do ... and when in Paris you should check out this place for a good seletion of French beers. They offer little else - a selection of a few Belgian staples and exceptions and assorted others - but the range of French beers is great. It is a very nicely yet simply made up store, and you have the right glass on the shelves next to each beer, which I found a nice touch. Simon - the proprietor - is a nice guy who likes elaborating on beers whenever he has enough time, and manages several customers like spinning plates. He also speaks fluent English which is an added benefit for the non-french-speaker. The prices are easy, all French beers cost the same dependent on bottle size, with some exceptions. If I remember correctly the 0.7 liter bottles are 5.4 EUR which is a bargain considering the beer prices in Paris.

Really nice place if you’re looking for french micros. The staff seems to know everything about french beer and willing to share experiences. Has some belgian beer aswell, including two of my favorite breweries Brasserie De La Senne and Cantillon. Without question the best beer store in Paris.

Pleasant location, down a small alleyway in an otherwise crowded part of Paris. The shop has an amazing collection of French crafts plus some decent Belgians (which I mostly ignored b/c I just came from Belgium). The owner is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the details of every product in his store (there must be hundreds). Every bottle of the same volume had the same cheap price. He bubble wrapped everything and we chatted about New York craft beer. I only bought 4 bottles because I had space issues.
I would kill for a store like this nearby.

Convenient location depends on your starting point. The main thing is this is the store for getting French craft beers. Simon was helpful with suggestions on local rarity and selecting towards my taste. If you want to expand your French craft beer horizons, you cannot afford to miss this store. Note: I only bought 6 beers, so I didn’t get any freebies. Maybe if I go back? Why not go back!!!!!!!! Price note: 6 bottles for the price of 4 cans of coke light at any local bistro.That’s value.

Very conveniently located just 10 mins walk from the Louvre.
Simon is a great guy and I bought 49 French beers from him! He chose most of them and knows his stock like the back of his hand. (There must be 200 beers in this shop - most of which are French). He threw in a few free beers and the large and chunky shop glass which is great.
It was a relaxed and very pleasant shopping experience and I even had a very nice home brew Christmas beer from Simon’s friend.
French beer is much underrated IMHO. If you are in Paris - do yourself a favour and make the effort to visit this shop - you won’t be sorry.

simple the best place in Paris for all tourists that want a slice of french styles beers... Great place too for parisians that want to try something else than 1664 and Desperados...
Simon is passionate and seems to know everything’s possible about brewing and beer-tasting.
