Located near the Louvre , but off the main boulevards. Smallish, a bit dark and stuffy inside. In all fairness we were there on a rainy Saturday afternoon and it was quite crowded. We sat outside under an awning, and it was perfect. Food was good and the beer selection was fairly deep in Belgian and French brews. Prices were typical of Paris brasseries. We had a nice conversation with the owner and he brought out several Belgian artisinal brews for us to try. It was a fun evening and a very good eating and drinking experience overall. I will definitely return, when next in Paris.

da fuori sembrava tanto uno dei soliti "bar à bières" turistici, ma dentro accoglie con tutt’altro calore: al di là delle chiassose spine (tutte trascurabili a parte La Chouffe, vabeh) le bottiglie sono in comparti frigo velati alle spalle del bancone, e sono tantissime. La lista è nutritissima (prezzi purtroppo i soliti), e vi sono sorprese sia in Belgio (Boon: primo lambic vero intercettato, con Mariage Parfait Gueuze) sia in Germania (Schneider Aventinus Eisbock), sia in Francia: le prime buone birre francesi le bevo qui. Prendo una Briarde, profumatissima pale ale di un microbirrificio di Courpalay, nell’Île de France, mentre Nicoletta assaggia una blanche (Aiguille Blanche) di un micro savoiardo di Aix-les-Bains (Brasserie des Cimes), molto coriandolesca; io bisso con la Yeti (sigh) del medesimo birrificio, una buona ale complessa con profumi da panettone natalizio. Sono contentone. La lista francese comprende poche altre cose, ed un paio di bottiglie non ci sono (non ho segnato i nomi): voglio strafare e prendere un’ultima birra prima di andare via, ma casco male; mi propinano un blend di birra e Patxaran intrugliato da Castelain (avevo chiesto informazioni, ma il gestore -invero non molto competente- mi aveva detto che era di un micro basco ed era aromatizzata con le bacche).
Speso più di birra che di cibo: i prezzi delle salades sono i più bassi che ho visto (dai 7€ in su, 10€ la più cara) e sono abbondantissime.
Per quanto mi riguarda, l’unico "bar à bieres" dove tornerei (anche se avrei poco di nuovo da provare).

2010-08. Visited very late on a busy Saturday evening last July, we sat at the bar while many locals watched the football game on the telly. It was quite dark and close in the bar. The barman was friendly but very busy and rushed. The bottle list is of course quite interesting and long, though the taps were just OK. Better to visit on a less busy night, I think.

Stumbled into this place after a day of sightseeing with my cousin and a co-worker. First beer was Leffe Brune. Nicely served with a complimentary plate of oysters. We were the only customers in the place on a misty October day. We all had salads with bacon and cubed fries as toppings. The second Leffe and a Grimbergen hit the spot before we moved on to other joints in the area. Great English-speaking staff that were willing to talk with us. The salad/fry combo is a regular now in my household.

Sat for about 30 minutes the first time before I found out he beer I ordered was out. Left. Came back again with my wife and we shared a bottle of La Coulette. Good service that time. Not really a great place, and the selection is not all that interesting, especially of French beers. Go if you need a bar to drink French beers in, but if you are at all familiar with French micros, it will be hard to find much that is new.

2010-08-07. It was a very dark room, with lots of booths up front and a late back room. We sat at the bar and perused the bottle list which had a decent selection of Belgian, German, and French offerings. The taps where primarily variations of Kronenbourg along with some UK imports like Guinness and Kilkenny. Server was very rushed but friendly by Paris standards.
Check the price on the menu before ordering. (Eep!) Showing French league soccer on the big screens while we were there. Decent spot, but I wasn’t really in the mood for it while we were there after getting lost in the rain on the way!

The best beer bar in Paris, still not very good. Has a beer list of 50-100 beers from mostly europe although nothing very exciting. Friendly staff.

Restaurant with a few interesting beers, certainly more than most places in Paris. The Basque food was ok, nothing special. The service was good, but it was mid-afternoon and the place wasn’t really ramped up for visitors. Decent spot, wish there was better in Paris but it doesn’t look like there is (except for Belgian beer, but we were on our way to Belgium).

Pretty nice little chilled out spot in the center of Paris. Interior is dark and cozy, and the outdoor patio is pretty large. Friendly place, can easily sit here a while. Not a beery place but has a fun selection of Corsican and Basque beers.
