Je n’ai pas trouvé mieux sur Paris, certes il y a du monde mais le comptoir est grand. Le service est impeccable, le barman nous conseille de belle façon. Les 20 bières en pression sont un large échantillon des brasseries artisanales locales et européennes. Les prix sont parisiens, mais on ne peut pas tout avoir...trouver une pression d’une microbrasserie c’est déjà un trésor. Merci pour ce lieu parisien.
We visited La Fine Mousse perhaps an hour after opening on a Friday night in October. What struck me initially was how small this place is - bar and seating area form a fairly tight L-shape. Overall it has a contemporary café / bar vibe going with relatively young clientele. Although it was already pretty busy we did manage to find a seat thankfully. La Fine Mousse boats perhaps the widest draught selection of beer in the city. There was a good mix of French, other European and North American microbreweries both on tap and in bottle. Service was pretty slow, but far from the worst we encountered on our visit. A huge step forward for the beer scene in Paris.
Interesting selection of beers on here of domestic craft and a few top shelf imports including a few collabs. The place is busy and popular with local brewers and other shop owners - I met the guy from Les Trois 8 there. Friendly staff who was happy to accomodate me and guide me through the menu and give me transit info so I could get home.
Visited in 2012. Nice little place, can get quite crowded in the evening. Has a modern feel to it. Nice music. Very good service. On a quiet Sunday evening one of the owners, working there, was ready to chat about beer, gave us samples. Everything was served in Teku glasses, I was suspicious about them at first, but loved them in the end. Quite good selection, 20 taps and 100+ bottles. Taps were combination of craft imports and French micros. Loved Thiriez Dalva and Saint Rieul Silvanecte. Taps prices are OK for Paris, considering the prices you’ll pay for macros elsewhere. Would like to visit it again.
Great little beer bar in a very local neighborhood. The draft selections are great, and they have many local beers to choose from. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A great spot to grab a beer and relax.
@ 30th April 2013 - Nice place in Paris to taste and discover beers. The choice is amazing, 20 beers on tap mostly french breweries. The choice is amazing and beers on tap are mostly cheaper. There is also a nice choice on bottle but it’s more expensive. The place is clean and really cozy but a little bit small. The service is nice and you will have many advices to choose your beer. About food, you can have bread with rillettes and paté to follow your beer.
@ 4th June 2015 - I update my post, because my last visit was the worst beer bar experience... I decided to visit the place on the evening. As always good atmosphere not very crowned with around 20 people inside. I toke a place at the bar and then the nightmare started... I waited around 10 min before the barman came and asked me for a drink. He purposed me a taster because the beer was "special" but it’s maybe the reason of my visit... He added some music, I waited more 10 min for my drink! 20 min for a beer it’s really too much! The place started also to be noisy (music + people) and I was shoved 2 times... This place is really not more a beer bar but more a bobo bar! I’m really sad to update my post but the last experience was really an horror!
My advice : go straight to Les Trois 8, greater ambiance and cheaper price with a good selection!
I have been there twice during a 3-day journey in Paris. Next to metro "Rue Saint-Maur". OK staff & bar. Guys from the restaurant are more eager to share their passion. Properly in the bar, nothing to be excited about except the beer card. Slightly disappointed.
All bare brick and modern-ish, pretty decent atmosphere early on a Saturday evening. Loads of Italian beer for some reason, but at least some French offerings. Prices reasonable for Paris, staff seemed OK, but a bit too busy to tell properly.
