A paradise for beer geeks and lovers. Do not expect to have industrial beers here. They specialize in artisan beers and value fine craft beers, be it on the tap or the numerous amount of bottles. Also a lovely place to savor beers from all over the world but specially from France and Belgium.
This place lives up to its reputation. Of course, it has ten very solid taps and a bunch of interesting bottles. But above all, it has a great vibe, very friendly and helpful staff, and friendly locals. Definitely worth a look. I enjoyed sharing some beers with Alex of Brouwers Verzet, thanks!
Fantastic bar, the best in Lille and probably France. Has a rustic feel to the place and is atmospheric. Fantastic draft and bottled selection including micros from France, Belgium and even Mikkeler from Denmark. Up there with the best bars in Belgium, gets very busy late in the evenings.
THE beer pub in lille. only 10 (soon 12) beers on draught & 100-150 bottles, but the selection is varied, changing according to seasons, and industrial beers are here forbidden. Just like in the "abbaye des saveurs", there is also a selection of rare whiskies.
Prices really reasonable for France.
The bartenders are worth the visit! (ask for Roland or Jean)
J’ai la chance d’habiter à proximité de ce bar à bière sublime.
Je le fréquente depuis son ouverture.
Ce que j’adore :
- Une sélection de biéres qui change régulièrement
- Des serveurs qui savent parler de bières et connaissent mes goûts !
- Une ambiance sympathique : j’y vais pour un verre et je pars 4 heures aprés !
La Capsule is a legendary beerbar in the old part of Lille. There is always a fantastic ambiance and the place is most of the times packed with beer loving people. The beer list is amazing, the selection is wel balanced and the prices are more than correct. All the draft beers are taped with perfection, and the botteled beers are served with the same care, it is truely done with love for the beer. I was lucky to try some fantstic beers, Belle Vue Fond de Gueuze 1989, Lou Pepe Framboise 2007,Samichlaus the original Swiss one and plenty of other ones from draft and bottle. The staff is very knowledgable, very professional and super helpful. It is amazing to see how much quality beers most people consume in this place. Good music in the background, and great snacks, i had traditional bread with top quality paté served with chutney and loads of pickeled onions and cornichons.
Vive La France !
Une très bonne sélection de bières bouteilles, une carte des pressions qui se renouvelle souvent avec la Moinette Blonde à l’année. De l’IPA, des Stouts impressionnants, des Barley-wine, des Gueuzes, brefs de quoi largement s’ouvrir sur des styles et des bières de pays différents. Leur mot d’ordre: la qualité d produit d’abord.
