Great beer bar in Paris near Gar Lyon. Easy to get to. The beer selection is great. The staff are friendly and the service was top notch. My wife and I could have stayed all night had beers. Definitely a must go spot for beer in Paris.
Fantastic place near the train station Gare de Lyon. This is a mix between a scandinavian hipster bar and a traditional Parisian bar. 15 taps with some Belgian and German classics but also American, Scandinavian and French beers at very good prices for Paris. Food is typically french = great. Staff is cunning and willing to help with such things as translation of menues. Next time in Paris, I will definately re-visit!
Express de Lyon is located close to the gare de Lyon railway station. I really loved the ambiance of this place. It has a blend of a traditional Parisian cafe with a touch of a beer geek ambiance. You have people coming here from all walks of life here : to play the lotto and sip some coffee or a classic beer(Leffe, Chouffe), you have the suited up business men coming in for a quick bite and beer, some siping a quick coffee before boarding the train and then a lot of beer geeks from all over the world too. They have a good mix of classic Belgian beers, local French beers and a good selection of craft beers from around the world (De Molen, Buxton, Mikkeller, Brewdog etc. ) The serve some yummy food and have a good bottle list too. The prices are very reasonable compared to Parisian standards. Visit this bar to experience a completely different ambiance accompanied by some excellent beers.

Good basic selection of Belgians on tap and in bottles (Chouffe, Rochefort, Chimay, etc) and great staff. Ask if there are any other bottles or beers not listed, as there may be some special stuff tucked away. They just added 3 more taps for artisinal beer! Don’t just go by the boards as they may not be up to date but ask what’s new on tap as there are some great beers rotating through, newest highlight being Hel & Verdoemenis.
