Easier way to find this nice small beer shop is to get out of the metro "ligne D", "Saxe-Gambetta" station. Visually speaking, too many beers in this small place. Friendly staff. Good advices. A mix between french craft beers, belgian and dutch classic beers with some US, UK Scandinavian beers. Maybe a little expensive (especially US). Some local beers (La Soyeuse...), regional (La Vallée du Giffre, BHB...) and national good ones (La Correzienne, La Débauche and other good stuff). Locally/regionaly speaking, less interesting than "La Chope de Lug". With the huge great shop "La Crafterie", this store doesn’t stand out of the crowd but nice balanced selection anyway. Very good !
Small store with a very well curated selection. What stood out about this place was its great selection of French micros. There were probably 100 different French beers to choose from. I opted for some bottles from Vallee du Giffree and Debauche. There was also a solid sprinkling of stuff from the US, Scandinavia, Belgium etc. Service was exceedingly kind and helpful. The shopkeeper knew his stuff and was really enthusiastic with his suggestions. Prices were a touch high, but not unreasonable. Overall, this place is absolutely worth checking out. High marks.
Extremely small bottleshop just beside metro Saxe - Gambetta. The guy who worked there was friendly and seemed knowledgeable about the beer scene in the area and French micros. Selection is small the quality is very high. There’s US stuff (Lost Abbey, The Bruery, Westbrook, AleSmith & others), Belgian beers, De Molen and a couple of others foreign beers as well as some French micros. Prices are really high, even for France, and not only on US stuff, but also on French micros. Prices were even a lot higher than in most Paris good beer stores... so I left empty handed. A nice place for a european beer geek tasting groupe, but probably not one that I would use as a regular customer because of the prices.

Small bottleshop, nice owner but really too expensive for beer!! :(
amazing little shop in lyon. many many different styles, from local french micro to hard to find american micro. friendly staff and great metal music on speakers. the only bad thing its the prices. most micro are very expensive....also the lack of space, makes things very uncomfortable
No backpack, no dogs*, and above all no dogs with backpack otherwise Cyril -the Boss - would kill you. (*Only the bulldog of Sylak festival is accepted)
Actually, it is a very small beershop in such a way that you don’t have not so much room to move and risk to break bottles at every corner.
The service is delivered by a true beer lover with true metal music as soundtrack, that’s just a perfect place for a headbanger who loves beers.
Regular new beers arrivals, price a bit high on average, but it’s because of the very high average quality.
Have a quick look at their range: Flying Dog, Brewdog, De Molen, Mikkeller, Anchor, Saint Bernardus, Portbrewing, Nogne, De Dolle, Great Divide, Cigar City, BFM, Dieu du Ciel and many more, up to > 300 beers with regular turnovers ! ! ! ! ! !
Close to the Metro.
NB: the Bar will open very soon (in a few days/weeks), in Lyon 5th district on the Soane River " Les Fleurs du Malt - La mise en bière".
This is GREAT news ! ! !

Small little bottle shop that I visited in late August 2012. Lots of very good Belgians that I was looking for. Also a bunch of French micros that I knew nothing about, but took a chance on. The only Westy12 they had was in a very expensive 6 bottle gift pack that I couldn’t take home. Guy working there spoke great English, very helpful. It was a little disconcerting that very loud heavy metal was playing while we were shopping, but it was a good experience nonetheless.
