nice little bottle shop in Paris. visited to pick up some French craft beer. a very knowledgeable American was working, so it was easy since i didn’t have to break out my University French from 20 years ago...craft beer isn’t cheap, so that’s the only knock on this place.
A Paris dans le XIII ème arrondissement, une cave à bière tenue par 2 passionnés qui mettent en avant les bières des brasseries françaises ou étrangères qui sortent du quotidien des grandes surfaces. Les conseils sont sympathiques et très pointus. Incontournable sur Paris. Un accueil chaleureux...J’adore.
Very nice little bottle shop not too far from Place d’Italie. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable about French beers/beer in general. Selection isn’t huge, but the quality is there. They carry Vallée du Giffre, which is usally a good sign. Lot of French micros and a good selection of foreign beers including some lambics. Price are ok considering it’s Paris. I really liked this store. Good ambiance, good selection, good service... one of my favorite of the city!

A very small and typical Parisian shop. I really like their attitude to compromising a selection. Over half at least is French micros, including some of the more attractive brewers such as Correziene, Sainte Cru and Le Paradis. The rest are nice Belgians and European craft imports such as De Molen, Mikkeller and even some The Kernel. Prices are Parisian too, even a tat high for that. The style of the shop also shows in the service, with great knowledge and attitude. It’s fairly easy to find and fairly close to the metro station. I liked their fridge (most French shops have this) with a mix of all their beers, chilled and ready for drinking. Great little shop, I hope they find a place to extend their available space and with that the selection.
