Great little shop, Stocking more French beers than Iíve ever seen as well as a huge selection of Belgians and a scattering of others. I was there in Feb 2013 and they had three of the Westvleteren 6 packs on display. Prices were good, a little pricier than in Belgian but reasonable.

I found this place thanks to a blog post from 2005. Itís likely I would have found it anyways, but itís nice to know that itís been around for a while. A smallish location with a friendly owner, this was the best spot in town for good beer. Lots of French, Belgian, Franco-Belgian beers available, many local or semi-local. They range from common to fairly rare, and everything I had seemed as if it hadnít sat around long enough to get stale. Also a lot of BrewDog products for some reason. The owners are extremely limited in speaking English, so it helps if you can use a bit of French, although despite the language barrier they can still be quite friendly and helpful. The place seemed like it made good business, but it never got too crowded while I was there. Prices were pretty fantastic, but my perception may be skewed by having been taxed to death while buying beer in Ontario. If youíre in Arras, or even the Nord Pas de Calais/Piccardie regions in general, this place is a must. The selection of glassware alone is worth the trip.
