“Open: Mon -Fri 09.30 - 16.30 Sat -Sun Closed A great brewery located a bit out of town but easily reachable as the last tram stop is right in front of the brewery. Inside its a working brewery with a "tap-room" space so you can have a few beers at source, sharing emotions and a unique moment! The team are a set of amazing brewers that are curious and inventive. They also have a Microcan CL5 canning machine and sell cans from the brewery. If you have the opportunity, do not hesitate to go to the brewery where you will be very well received and advised. Excellent value for money on the go.I highly recommend.“

“Nice located nice little beer shop. Fine selection with a wide variation of interesting beers from most European countries and a fair deal of French breweries with a fair deal of local breweries. Exactly what a beer tourist will be looking for at a shop like this. The staff is helpful and know their buisness.“

“A welcoming variation from all the French style pubs and bistros in the area. Quite spacious and rather typical British town pub. Seem to be rather popular among the younger crowd, but all range of of age seems to visit. The beer itself isn’t outstanding or particular impressing, but not bad at all. Quite standard in the middle of the road brews among the most standard beer styles, but there seems to be made space for any occasionally more experimental brew as well. Did not try the food, but it seems to be the regular burger and fries style withing the decent quality range. There is a few other, perhaps better alternatives for beek geek visiting town, but this is by far the most centrally located one and perfect for a quick afternoon, early evening pint before dinner.“

“Small, like everything her in Bordeaux. 6ish taps with acceptable selection and some bottles. Fair prices. Fancy oldschool video game for guests to play.“

“Cute looking, centrally located. Just a few French breweries and mediocre selection from abroad, mainly global players. Good for Bordeaux.“

“En Burdeos también se encuentra la cervecería Le Lucifer. Los propietarios son una familia muy hippie, parece ser que viven todos en la misma finca del pub, y allí están todos: abuelos, padres, hijos, nietos… y sí, son muy hippies, ¡se sale! La selección de cervezas es mayoritariamente belga; entre sus 18 surtidores se encuentran cervezas como la Lucifer, Delirium Tremens, Tripel Karmeliet, Satan Red, Chouffe o la Barbar, y en carta hay más de 250 referencias. Hace tres años desde nuestra última visita, pero estoy seguro de que ya tienen una muy buena selección de craft beers. Además, el pub es grande, con billares, se hacen conciertos y preparan comida fría tipo tablas de quesos, salchichón, foie… Hemos recibido muy buen trato siempre que hemos ido. Por mencionar dos cervezas interesantes que he bebido allí, destacaría la Bourganel au Miel de Chataignier, que es una pasada, y la Leute Bokbier.“

“Nice corner bar on one of the main streets in the centre. Fairly Duvel Moortgat pointed but a decent enough range of staples and not so staples. Decent range of Italian beers but remarkably little from France - and what little there was felt expensive. Chatty informed service. Someone else's music imposed.“

“Good beers! After all that is what matters! Beers are brewed in the basement. The first attendant was hostile to my asking for wifi password (when the bar was completely empty mid afternoon) but the attendant that took over was very nice. 10 beers on tap. I had a 1833 black IPA (pretty good) and The Fair Black Lady very good). They are also a restaurant serving tajines. I had an excellent chocolate and stout cake. Overall it is a very nice spot to eat and drink.“

“The place itself is situated in beautiful building. Inside you will typical cosmopolitic "craft beer" vibe. Selection is not ming blowing, but local bitter was on the spot experience. Food is quite average. It's not like you gonna miss something skipping this place, but it won't hurt too.“

“Great Beer Bar with several nice Beers on Draught and a lot of Beers from the Bottle. It is a trendy place in the western side of the city centre. The service is friendly with a good acknowledgement of the beers. Also some nice things to eat. A tol of Beers form my favourite French Brewery La Debauche. The prices asre all right if you compare them with other Pubs. We drank a Pint of very nice triple IPA draught for about 8,50 Euro’s.“

“This Beer Pub is outside the touristic area. But a great surprise. It seems that this place has a long tradition. You find a lot of Beers on Draught and also several Interesting Beers from the Bottle. The service is very frendly and you can easily have a chat with other visitors. Especially a large selection of Beers from my favourite French Brewery La Debauche. The prices are a bit high if you compare them with Jaqen, my favourite Beer Bar in the City Centre.“

La Cave des Moines (Beer Store)
57 COURS VICTOR HUGO
“The shop was closed when we were there, but the display window showed some interesting beers I had never seen, some local beers as well, and some harder to get beers. We also saw some standard Belgian beers and Brewdog. Although we couldn’t visit it, I think this is worth the mention on RB and worth a visit when you’re around.“

“This is a great store. The people are kind, knowledgable and take their time. The shelftags are very helpfull as well, listing beer style, country, primary flavours, etc. They have beers from all over Europe: English, Belgian, Dutch, but also Polish and other East European, some Nordic breweries as well, and of course a whole range of French beers, half of them from Bordeaux and the surroundings. Only downside are the prices: everything is expensive, so you could end up paying a lot for average beers.“

“Une super sélection (18 becs) avec uniquement des bières artisanales, qui changent très souvent. Il y a toujours au moins quelques très bonnes françaises (la débauche, corrézienne, la pépie...) et des anglaises, danoises, américaines, etc... Possibilité de prendre au galopin (15cl), très intéressant vu la diversité des pressions. Accueil chaleureux et conseil avisé. Une bonne petite sélection de bouteilles aussi, avec possibilité d’acheter à emporter. Je n’ai pas testé le côté restauration, mais ça a l’air bon.“

“Visited during summer holiday 2016. The shop/bar is located in the center of Bordeaux and pretty easy to find. Nice atmosphere and really friendly and helpfull owners. 5 tapps and ca 200 bottles, not a very big selection, though it is wide. Half of the selction is french, acomplished with a decent selction of international brews. Prices are just a little higher Than im used to in Holland, and compared to other shop in france affordable. Big recommandation!“

“Fantastic little bar/bottle shop! Stumbled upon it, close to our hotel. 5 taps of well poured beer and around 75 bottles, nice mix of French and foreign beer.....the foreign beers could be better chosen. Very nice atmosphere, good people, nice little selection of good quality snacks. All in all a very very good experience!“

Bordeaux Beer Shop (Beer Store)
57 RUE DES FAURES
“This is a fantastic little shop. There is a really well chosen selection of French craft beer, and some Belgian, American etc. I don’t think I’ve seen a better range of obscure French beers outside of la cave a bulles in Paris. Bordeaux beer shop is obviously a labour of love for the owner, who really knows her stuff. A must visit for beer fans in Bordeaux.“

“More of a coffee shop and cafe than a restaurant or bar. Right in the heart of Bordeaux and only notable because they carry bottles of almost every variation from Naufrageurs for roughly 5E a piece. Good staff. Didn’t eat, but the cookies looked great. Mostly just a spot for ticking Naufrageurs.“

“Bar à bières conventionnelles, essentiellement belges. Peu de bières françaises et c’est bien dommage. Conseil existant mais assez banal "c’est une bonne bière", "c’est une triple belge dpnc elle est bonne"...mouais, j’ai testé mais je ne pense pas y revenir“

“Nice little escape for any English in Bordeaux. Ambience is alright, staff were really nice and helpful, only thing is they forgot our order, but it certainly wasn't normal cause everyone else got their food on time. So we were just unlucky I guess. Lucky it tasted good. They have their own brews as well, and they're ok. Tried 4 of the 6 on tap, wasn't impressed, but they tasted ok and generally went down easy. Not a bad place for lunch/dinner and a pint.“

“Une très bonne adresse de bar à bières (pour Bordeaux biensûr). La carte des pressions aurait besoin d’être renouvellée de temps en temps... Sinon très grand choix de bières en bouteille, dommage que ca soit un peu chère. Excellent ambiance le dimanche soir une fois par mois lors des Jam Sessions!“

“We found this bar on our last trip to Bordeaux, Better than average selection of Belgian and European beer with some seasonal and unique brews, 18 taps and around 250 bottles, fairly young crowd, live entertainment, pool tables, great service, would recomend to visit if in Bordeaux.“

“Centrally located in an old building. Same style of beers as the other Frog pubs ranging from Blonde and Blanche to a Dark. A far cry from the terrible choice of beers on general sale in France. We didn’t eat so can’t comment there“

“The Belgian beer bar "Le Titi Twister" is a short 5 minute walk from the Place De La Victoire in the centre of Bordeaux. Unlike its Tarantino inspired namesake, it’s a small but welcoming bar on a quiet side street. When I visited, it was at a time when I wasn’t really up to speed with all things beer related but I remember there being several taps and a relatively extensive beer menu. From the few french reviews I’ve managed to find, they appear to also stock some non-Belgian options from around the world. I wouldn’t expect too many finds or surprises but it is a well worth a visit in a city that is understandably more wine-centric.“
