Forgot to review , I do the job now ... Visited November 2012 , the place is pretty nice tiny and cosy.. Easy to find in a nice narrow street in the city centre .. They sell 12 beers on tap from North France and Belgium mostly ,in perfect condition so it’s a very good place where to sample the " biere de garde" ... I chatted with a guy who spoke English so I learned a lot about French beers and he already known some of Italian beer ..a very friendly place with passionate staff and good and not easy to find French beer on tap..
Alors choix intéressant, mais assez pauvre au final lorsqu’on connait un peu la mentalité , et la prétention du lieu, se prétendant être un des meilleurs bar à bières au monde. il suffit de comparé avec des bar comme le moeder lambic à bruxelles par exemples. L’accueil s’est dégradé depuis pas mal de temps. Certains serveurs ayant la grosse tête aussi et se croyant les messies de la bières venu pour precher la bonne parole. Bref un bar qui pourrai être sympa si il ne se prenait pas au sérieux
Visited in 2011. As the name suggests, it’s a very small bar, just an elongated room along the counter; maybe too much "dirty looking"; they have 12 taps, 3 or 4 French micros and the rest Belgian; although they may have a special week with guest taps (such as Mikkeller); about 100 bottles, again with mostly Belgian beers, including many Trappists (no Westvleteren) and other good ones (no rarities, apart from Schorsch 31, Tactical Nuclear Penguin, Sink the Bismark); also some 10 French beers from micros; appreciated for not carrying macro shit; I hope with time they can increase the number of French beers. The guy knows his beers. Same owner as the L’Abbaye des Saveurs.

Large beer choice but the staff is rough and not so clean, especially late in the night.
Hide in the center of Vieux Lille, this bar is just really awsome, Staff people are passionate, get lots of knowledge and always good tips. 12 taps, for all drinkers & beer geek and a range of whiskey. The selection change often. Events, meeting and tasting with local brewers !! once of my favourite bar ever=
Une bonne sélection de bières habituellement... malheureusement, plus grand chose en pression le jour où j’y suis passé. Ambiance sympa.

Fairly small bar with a mainly local fairly young crowd. Pretty busy (on a Sunday/holiday weekend). Varied tap selection and a fridge of interesting bottles. It’s a nice beer bar and definitely a place I would visit again when in Lille, but doesn’t have the kind of selection that warrants the scores given on ratebeer.
