I really liked this place. A laid back pub with a mix of punters..many watching the football when I was there. It looks like there’s 2 or 3 taps dedicated to local micros and the remainder from mostly continental Europe. Nice selection overall and the French beers were enjoyable. Well worth a visit.
Very good spot. Bottle list seemed a bit lackluster, but the tap list, though small, boasted some great options at very good prices. Highlights included Nogne O Imperial Stout at EUR 5 and Drooie Chica Americana IPA at about EUR 4.50. Very pleasant ambiance, nice bartender (English-speaking), free wi-fi (password: exss2lyon). From the outside this place looks like all the other street cafes, but I think the beer options here are fairly unique. Certainly a venue worth seeking out for a good beer in Paris.
Nice little bar in beer deprived Paris. Normally 16 beers on tap, but only 10 when I visited. Nothing overly special on tap - nothing from France (!) when I visited. Prices are very reasonable and the service was friendly enough. Worth a stop when in Paris - very close to Gare du Nord.
Visited in 2012. Seemed like a regular Paris bar with nice selection of beer. They had couple of macros on tap, and the rest of 14 taps were divided between Belgian classics and imported crafts (De Molen, To Ol, Brewdog). Bottles advertised on blackboard were mostly Belgian classics. Worth visiting if you are nearby or if you’re into widely available Belgian beers. Prices were good.
Somewhat shabby ambiance. Some interesting beers on tap, including nogne o imperial stout, and brew dog in bottles - also heineken, amstel, kronenbourg and desperados !!! Not a beer destination but worth dropping by if you are in the neighborhood
Homey pub, great staff, who are knowledgable and helpful about the beer selection - the owner took it over from his dad and seems be to very passionate about craft beer. Selection is heavy Belgian, but the owner told me he is adding a couple taps just for French beer. Friendly customers. Good prices. Nothing spectacular, but as mentioned in beer starved Paris, this is a great place.
A real find, recommended by Simon at La Cave a Bulles. Fine selection of mostly Belgian brews, appropriate glassware and decent prices. If you are close to Gare de Lyon, this is definitely worth a stop.
Small place with big station clock inside, just across metro station Gare de Lyon. Most of the people here come to pay lottery or something similar, not much beer fans although there’s an interesting selection of beers on tap (probably monthly rotated but not sure). Heavy and loud hip hop music without any representative of a kind inside.

Nice place in front the gare de Lyon in Paris. The place looks like as a typical ’brasserie’ in France with PMU and typical food. The beer selection is nice, the selection is great and all the people will find his beer, the selection is for all the taste. Service is good and clean. The price is very good for Paris. About the bottle selection, it’s not so varied but you will find a good selection from US, UK and The Netherlands. I will really recommend this place is Paris!
Update after the First Paris Beer Week:
The food is good with a high value for money. Nice service and fresh food, just what I’m looking for.
During the festival, L’Express de Lyon made a soirée with 15 Mikkeller’s on tap, with a good price for this kind of beer. I really appreciate the Romain’s work! Nice place and nice barkeepers! Continue on this path!
