“Small bottle shop with quite a wide spectrum of brews. It is close enough to Beer District Libération, and is a proper place to get some beers for drinking at your accomodation if you want to.“

“It seems to be a newly opened bar at district Libération in Nice, with a well designed furniture. It has 16 taps including locals and foreigns as well. The bartender is a great guy, atmosphere is cool and they offer tastings before buying, which makes having beer unique.“

“Mooie ruime winkel, met een uitgebreid assortiment speciale bieren 50 procent locaal en 50 procent Internationale bieren. Genoeg keuze ook in de hier minder gangbare stijlen. Prijzen zijn vergelijkbaar met andere winkels in deze omgeving. naast de winkel is hier ook een. Kleine brouwerij aanwezig waar een eigen bier gebrouwen wordt.“

“This store had the best range of French craft beer that we could find on our travels through Provence and the French Rivera. Tidy modern interior with all of the merchandise neatly displayed. The proprietor was very helpful and obviously a native English speaker. He was able to pick out several interesting local beers that suited my drinking style. Make sure you stop in here when in Nice.“

“Around half of the taps (4 of them) are empty, the remainings contain a few grimbergen beers and 1 or 2 macro lagers. They have some bottles, as well but the the menu does not list them and most of them are not visible in the fridge (what I could see was not too promising: Heineken and other lagers, as well as some widely available Belgian beers); will not visit again for sure“

“Nouvelle cave à bières sur Nice, une ville où il est malheureusement difficile de devenir un amateur éclairé. L’ouverture de la boutique est donc une excellente opportunité, d’autant plus que les propriétaires sont vraiment charmants et n’hésiteront pas à vous conseiller si nécessaire. Le choix est large, avec des classiques comme de l’import de tous les pays. Le focus est fait sur les brasseries artisanales du quart Sud-Est de la France, ce qui permet de découvrir de nombreuses productions artisanales méconnues jusqu’alors. Les prix sont très raisonnables et font de Allez Hops! l’adresse numéro 1 à Nice.“

“Wandered through here with friends and got a few beers from the region and a few others. Proprietor (from the US) was helpful and friendly and the store was nicely set up and well stocked. Unfortunately the local craft beers I bought ranged from pour-down-the-drain undrinkable to "Meh, ok"; I’d like to give him a higher rating, but worry a little about his selection and possible temperature storage issues. In his defense, the beer we sampled with him was great!“

“I was sure I had rated this place before, somehow my rating has disappeared. Dark and not very attractive place in the Old Town - still one of the better places for Belgian beers in Nice.“

“I think you have to rate some place relative to where it is, the context. There is almost NO beer in Southern France. Happened to stumble on this place just roaming Nice. They had been open 3 days. The proprietor was on site. Chicago ex-pat. Great selection of regional beer along with a few from other regions (Rogue, Brew Dog). The emphasis on regional brews was fantastic. The staff (owner) really knew his stock. Put this place in the middle of Atlanta or DC and it is not going to garner a super high rating. But is in an oasis in a desert. Real IPAs and regional variations. Fun Triples etc. with a place that specifically opened to celebrate beer. It is absolutely top notch. You will walk in here and find 40-50 beers that you will not find anywhere else in Souther France, that is impressive. Can’t say enough about how nice this place was. Cool interior and they are still building it out. Staff were fantastic. I walked out with a great 6 pack for a very, very reasonable price and look forward to enjoying it tonight. If I were in Nice longer, I would be back to sample the rest. You have to look this place up if you are coming through and desperate for something other than Leffe, 1664 et.“

“Friendly bloke running a small bottle shop out of a tabac (so great opening hours) with a lot of passion & interest. Interesting little selection - main french distribution international (US, UK and Continental) breweries plus various pretty local breweries (including the one down the street). Nobody need be disappointed if on holiday with a thirst. A haven.“

“It is on the way from the arch entrance to old town and Albert Hotel in old town Nice, during free time in a walking tour of Nice. Service seemed average, was not busy at 1pm on a Friday. Most taps I saw on this path which was open this early. Medium sized indoor bar area and nice size outdoor seating. With the limited time and selection I did not have a beer, but would check this out again if in the area. Prices seemed reasonable.“

“been there on my holidays in last july and it was my supply shop for whole week. nice selection of belgian craft beers (few light beers in ice box as well because of the fire from heaven). Some french craft as well, beers from other countries rather a rarity“

“Whilst in Nice old town for the day and finding other higher rated RB places closed in the afternoon, I visited Les Distilleries Ideales. Around a dozen beers on tap and half dozen bottles, so range not massive but certainly enough for our visit. Service was good, place had a good vibe with a mix of age ranges and tourist/locals. Worth a look when in Nice.“

“I didn’t plan to visit this place but i was just passing by and i decided to sit outside - service not interested in any quick talk about food paring or anything - there was a huge fight about main dish between one of the waiters and client, who wasn’t happy about his dinner. Selection ok, mainly belgium beers, sone german and english standards. $$ ok“

“This is NOT a beer bar. When this is said, I must admit, I kind of fell in love with this little wine bar. Why is that? Well, they did have only two bottles to choose from, when I was there in the springtime about Easter, so the selection is/was poor, but it was bottles from the norwegian brewery Nøgne Ø, and especially their #500, an Imperial IPA. When you had been around the city, looking for some bitter beers like IPAs or the likes of that and didn’t managed to find anything, you did feel like finding a church for your thirst. This fact and the fact, that the venue is situated in a very nice street, cozy and kind of quiet although it’s a big street. Visit it in the afternoon, from 12-15, to sit in the sun outside in the nice outside furnitures. The hostess didn’t know much about the beers or beers in general, as their priority is at wines and the restaurant. But she was very polite and suggested me another place, a real beer-bar down the centre of the old town. At my second visit at Vini Mundo (had to have that #500), she guided me to a third beer bar in the near of this one. At the downside: The poor selection as I mentioned, and then the prices. I paid 10 € for a beer and that’s expensive even in Denmark. Even though I’d probably would revisit the place the next time I’m in Nice.“

“Cozy little place. Not that many beers, but some from brewers i don’t know. I was in dire need of some stout/porters, but they didn’t have that many at the time I did however find a few. The man whi helped me was very polite and informative, spoke good english, and did come with some good recommendations. I left the place with a few good beers and a bottle of Calvados.“

“If you read some of the recent reviews of this place, you have the right sense of the place. Therefore the rest of my review will be in danish. Et lille sjovt skævt sted i umiddelbar nærhed af Place du General de Gaulle, i den nordlige ende af Nice, hvor sporvognen også kører forbi. Stedet er et kombineret avis- og bladsalg / øludsalgsted (bottleshop). Forvent ikke et fancy sted med orden og plads, dette sted er mere ejerens hobby, der er kommet ned i en butik. Han er venlig, men meget dårligt engelsktalende, hvilket i sig selv giver visse udfordringer. Men han hjælper så godt, han kan og det lykkedes da at få hivet nogle oplysninger om fx. lokal øl ud af ham. Udvalget er ganske pænt med måske 100-150 forskellige øl og ikke 300, som skrevet på et skilt udenfor. Der er naturligvis mange franske øl, men også tyske, belgiske og enkelte skotske samt amerikanske. Derudover et udvalg af glas og enkelt andet merchandise såsom t-shirts og lign. Prisniveauet er ikke lavt, men henad Danmark. Til gengæld finder du sikkert øl hér, som ikke findes i vores kongerige. Bemærk at der er lukket mellem kl. 13 og 16. Som andre også skriver, er forretningen et must for øl-geeks, der er ude efter at finde et større udvalg end i de gængse supermarkeder. Jeg gik glad ud derfra.“

“This was the place I liked the best in Nice and I only stumbled across it by accident after finding the two other pubs in this street in the old town closed. It had apparently only just re-opened after refurbishment and it looked very nice and clean. They have a few British and Belgian beers here including a guest beer which, when I was there, was DNA a collaboration beer from Dogfish Head/Charles Wells. The landlord, an Englishman, was extremely friendly and welcoming as were all the other staff who were so numerous they almost outnumbered the customers. He told me that he was hoping to get some locallly-brewed beer in future. They have a couple of TV screens showing sport downstairs and upstairs. They have a wide range of spirits and cocktails in addition to the beer. The beers I felt were quite reasonably priced for France. If I lived in Nice this would be my local, no doubt.“

“This is the only really beery place that I came across in NIce. In style it looks like a British pub - hence the name. They have a quite significant list of beers, mostly from Belgium, but also from France and elsewhere and even have a couple of their own house beers; a blond and an amber. I tried the amber which was OK, but no more. There were specials and seasonal beers advertised. They play blues and rock music and there were snacks available. The barmaid/waitress, however, seemed to know nothing about beer. When I asked her if they had any local beers she just listed the usual French beers like Pelforth and Desperados and even included a Belgian beer, Chimay, in the list. She couldn’t count out my change either so maybe she was new. I didn’t find any local beers here or anywhere else in Nice. For anybody looking for a decent pub atmosphere and a selection of good beers this has to be the best so far in this town which the international beer revolution has apparently not yet reached.“

“This place in the old town is obviously fairly trendy with younger, hipper people. My wife and I were probably the oldest customers in there, but I liked the ambiance in general. Unfortunately the choice of beers was very poor and we ended up ordering rum instead of beer. I was surprised when it closed at midnight which I thought was early for a place like that.“

“Another typical French café in a shopping street with a big terrace, this one on the main street. I was quite disappointed by the place as it looked like it might be nice, but it wasn’t. There was a fair selection of Belgian and French beer, but nothing special and more expensive than elsewhere.“

“This place has a reasonable selection of Belgian beers and a few more besides from France and elsewhere. The terrace on the busy shopping street was crowded, but not with beer lovers. The service was surly and unhelpful.“

“Visited it when other pubs closed - which is usual for Nice. This one is open till 5 and gets pretty full after 2. The advantage was Delirium Tremens from the tap (Red too, but it’s sweet as hell, still good for a Kriek though). Overall a good place, but I will stick to beers from the shops and Irish pubs in Nice.“

“Strax norr om järnvägsstationen hittas denna lilla tidnings- och ölbutik. Ägaren (?) kan ingen engelska, men pratar gärna på på sitt modersmål även om man förstår eller inte. Vänlig man dock som åtminstone försöker. Jag köpte 12 flaskor och han sken upp för varje exemplar jag ställde fram på disken. Priserna är överlag rätt dyra, men å andra sidan är Nice (och Frankrike) dyrt, så inget att hänga upp sig över. Främst hittas belgiska och franska öl, men där finns även en undangömd hylla med lageröl från framför allt forna och nuvarande kolonier. Vilket ju uppskattas om man vill bocka av nya länder. Jag riktade in mig på de franska mikrobryggerierna och hittade vad som i alla fall ser spännande ut. Väl värt ett besök. Och om man är i Nice finns det inget som ens kommer i närheten av Brune Rousse Houblon.“

“On the main avenue in Nice that is lined with shops on either side of the central tramway, this large French cafe in style is midway between the main station area and the public park where it ends fairly close to the seafront and Old Town. It’s fairly sterile looking inside but when the weather is nice hardly anyone sits in here, however the terrace area facing into the main street gets packed and you’ll be lucky to find a table right away in the summer months. The beer selection is fairly extensive, although probably bland in most Frenchmen’s eyes, however for foreign visitors it will probably turn up a beer or two of interest that’s hard to find outside of France, none of which could be described as cheap or good value for money.“

“A couple of blocks inland from the seafront road in Nice, the Rue de France on which it is situated is a very busy pedestrian street full of shops and shoppers and tourists during the very long summer season. Without its fairly dense patio presence jutting out into the pedestrianised street it would be a small place, but given the amount of people frequenting this part of the city it has no problem filling the tables and chairs, especially on a hot day, which is not unusual in this part of the world. It’s very much a French cafe in style, not really a pub, but its selection, although not overly interesting, is more extensive that most other places you see walking round Nice.“
