“A great friendly brewpub with a good evolving selection of well balanced beers, served from 9 taps they do have a few guest ales, also a plus point is small tasting boards on the taps that give a brief idea of what to expect from your beer of choice. There is outside seating on the street. Inside is quite small and cosy with an eclectic mix of old and new, they have lots of board games and books for you to while away the time. Occasional live music. There is a cool vibe, plus nice staff. Reasonably priced (happy hour from 17:00 - 19:00) drinks, including well-made cocktails. Seats fill up fast shorty after opening! If you are visiting Lyon and want to discover local craft scene, look no further.“

La Plante du Loup (Beer Store)
67 RUE DE MARSEILLE
“Somewhere inbetween a small bar and a beershop, near the university. Inside it's small, with a nice patio outside. Very kind service. Four taps only, but four fridges full of bottles, both French and international. Some small food, like cheese or salame, nicely presented. Overall, very nice!“

“Very popular bar on a busy street of Lyon. Nice atmosphere and infrastructure, with an industrial feeling. The girls at the bar are nice and smiling. Selection is halfway between industrial/commercial beers (e.g. La Chouffe) and craft, including an explicit link with Meantime. Prices were a little lower than the usual in France. Overall, I wouldn't suggest it to a craft beer enthusiast, but OK for a quick drink.“

“Popular beer bar on the riverside. Music is high so everybody is screaming to talk. 20 beers on tap, nice selection. Didn't look at the fridge... Prices, as often happens in France, are high (4.5 for 25cl). Beers, though, were served at the right temperature and well preserved. Overall, a place to come back to.“

Hopper (Bar)
43, COURS GAMBETTA
“That'S one very nice beer pub, that I would not have expected in France, but it's proof of a recent development in favour of beer lovers there. The interiour is designed very hip, copper pipes, cosy and modern at the same time. The range of beers available on taop is wide and international, plus temporariy specials. Food is good. I had the cold cut platter which is huge, yet reasonably priced. Staff is friendly and seem to enjoy their work which immediately transfers to theb guests. One of my favorite pubs that I have been to in continental Europe.“

The Beers (Bar)
3 PLACE SAINT-PAUL
“Simply a magic place to sit outside with plenty of interesting beers, including BreewDog's Nanny State (for those touring by bike, like me). I didn't try the snacks because the bar is very close to Lyon's main restaurant district - which is not to be missed.“

Les Fleurs du Malt (Beer Store)
56, COURS GAMBETTA
“Fantastisch dat iemand het initiatief neemt hier een bierwinkel te runnen. Alleen zal de omzet hier niet al te groot zijn, zeker gezien de prijzen die er afgerekend moeten worden. En ook al is de winkel zeer beperkt qua omvang, toch zijn de schappen niet echt goed gevuld. Voor een Nederlander voldoende te ontdekken, je moet er alleen wel bereid zijn flink je portemonnee voor te trekken.“

“Conseillé par Alain de Rennes, nous avons passé un excellent moment entre les pressions et le choix des bouteilles qui est plus que correct pour un établissement de cette taille. Un établissement rock'n roll où les parties de fléchettes rassemblent les amis entre eux et permet même de faire de nouvelles rencontres. Je recommande! (adhésion annuelle obligatoire mais prix dérisoire par rapport à l'expérience d'une soirée dans ce club de fléchettes)“

“Visited 20th May 2018 with amagnus. Nice place. Entrance is quite tricky, the bar takes place in a cave.Ceiling is really low and some doors are really really low, but it's funny. Ambiance is heavy rock/metal, so OK for me. Music can be a little bit loud and it can be difficult to discuss. Place is very large. Tables and seats are kegs... so not very confortable; Dart to don't get bored. Beer selection is really nice. Very interesing choice with nice brewery from Europe on tap. Very eclectic. Bootle selection is great also but I didn't try. Good place for a beer in Lyon. Recommended.“

4 PLACE TOBIE ROBATEL
“Bottle shop, also offering growler fills. Good service - both knowledgeable and friendly. Decent selection of French and Belgian beers, plus a sprinkling of stuff from other countries. High prices but that seems to be the case with craft beer in France. Definitely worth a visit.“

“J'y suis allé à l'occasion de la soirée OFF précédent le Lyon Bière Festival. Première surprise en y entrant : ça sent super fort le moisi et l'humidité de cave. Eurf ! Pas très fan de l'ambiance "caveau des années 80" avec des peintures assez "beauf" bien graveleuses. Musique rock/métal pour les amateurs. Équipe sympathique. Mention spéciale à la p'tite donzelle tatouée et percée vraiment au top, très agréable. Yo.“

La Crafterie (Beer Store)
4 PLACE TOBIE ROBATEL
“J'y suis allé à l'occasion de la soirée OFF précédent le Lyon Bière Festival. En entrant on constate direct que le lieu a de la gueule. C'est beau, le choix des bières et variés en plus d'être de qualité (dommage que les premières étagères font la part belle à des belges archi-classiques). 6 becs pour remplir des growlers si je ne m'abuse. A l'étage c'est plus minimaliste mais néanmoins stylé. L'équipe est sympa (mention spéciale au barbu super enjoué et plein de pep's). Bel endroit.“

“Went here one night during my stay in Lyon. It is a club so you have to pay one euro for a membership to get in. Its certainly worth it though. One of the benefits of it being a club is they can be open super late(6AM I believe). They have about 5 draft lines. I had an excellent hazy IPA on draft from the French brewer Brasserie Haarddrëch. The bottle selection is where this place excels. I initially asked the owner Stéphane for recommendations for good French stouts and he helped us out. We ended up spending about 5 hours there and had a blast drinking amazing French, Italian, and Belgian beer from the cellar and talking to the owner and members about beer, France, traveling etc. It was a great experience. Highly recommended. “

Péchés Maltés (Beer Store)
76 RUE DE LA PART DIEU
“Small and cosy shop, selling whisky and beer. Owner (I think) was very friendly and knew his stock rather well. Selection is quite small but contained some stuff I had not seen in any other shop in the area. Prices were rather high. Worth a look if you are in the area near the main train station.“

“Biggish shop near Terreaux. Service is friendly but a bit mixed in terms of knowledge. Impressive selection of beers from all over. Good amount of French stuff but was particularly impressed by UK and US stuff. Prices maybe a shade higher than elsewhere. Worth a visit.“
