The list of bottles they serve is perhaps the only reason this is even on RateBeer -- except for perhaps the name of the place. With a couple dozen Belgians on bottle and 5 boring and already widely available pils/Belgians on tap you are not going to impress anyone. One exception though, and one I might actually stop here again if I am stuck in the arrondissement here: Flying Dog bottles for a somewhat reasonable price for Paris (7,50 euro for Snake Dog and 8,50 for Raging Bitch). Brew Dog too but those were very overpriced (Hardcore IPA for 10 euro). Service was disinterred and although the food looked actually not too bad we didn’t try any. Perhaps most typical of the place, though, was their home pilsner called Mellsbrau. A new tick? After asking it turned out as a randomly branded bullshit dump-price pils... I couldn’t even be bothered tasting it or adding it to RateBeer.
locale piuttosto brutto con musica dancehall moderna (e francese!!) a volume irritante. Ed è qui che prendo la prima sòla: nella lista delle birre francesi, leggermente più nutrita del solito, trovo una bottiglia da 75cl di un presunto micro delle fiandre da dividere con la donna (12€: vale la pena siccome le 33cl hanno i soliti prezzi). Si chiama Rince Cochon e quando arriva un simpatico maialino mi sorride dall’etichetta; la giro e scopro..che la fa Huyghe. Tristezza, ovviamente è uno schifo (ale acquosa da 8%, dolciona e alcool); per rifarmi, prendo una seconda birra dopo il pasto: si chiama Duchesse Anne ed è di un produttore bretone (Lancelot) credo di medie dimensioni (ho trovato altre sue birre e mi sembra fra i più distribuiti insieme a Annoeullin). Sa di lievito; vabeh, torniamo al Pompidou.
Da mangiare le salades erano a prezzi standard (10/12€), ma abbastanza ricche (nella mia c’era una coscia d’anatra intera). Birre belghe/tedesche le solite, meno però che in altri bar.
Serata no birra, giretto a Montmartre.
Decent beer bar in Paris, which is always something noteable. Has about 24 bottles available and 5 beers on tap, including delirium. But otherwise it’s a very typical sports bar, very average prices for Paris.

March 2008. The atmosphere was more like an average Irish Pub setup, but wasn’t overy concerned about the look of the place as I was hunting for beer.
Out of the three beer bars I visited, this was my least favorite. However, it is by no means a bad place and you can find a few decent brews.
Decent pub atmosphere, courteous service, and a beer selection that is slightly better than most Paris bars. Cool music played when I was there (Howlin’ Wolf? In France? Yep!) Nice place to stop in between Au Trappiste and La Cave A Bulles.
