Went there yesterday around 15:00 but however the barman was present, we weren’t allowed to have a drink yet. Went back at 17:00 then. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Ordered 4 tasters from tap, and the barman recommanded a fifth one. Paid 12,5 euro for those 5 tasters. Which is reasonable in France. Like the atmosphere of the place. Chill couches. Nice selection with some french, dutch and american craft brews. Didn’t have any food. Highly recommanded when you’re in Paris, eventhough it’s a bit outside of the city centre.
UPDATE: went there again last week. Florian and Laurent are great people and run an amazing bar. We had a great time and I’m looking forward to visiting again!!
"Modern" industrial craft beer bar look. Bartender were just brewing their own homebrew when I visited! Nice service, good taps but lack of French microbrews dissapoints the beer Hunter. This time many Ghost-beers on tap. Certainly place to visit while in Paris and it is not too far from Les Trois 8.
Newly opened place. Most of the people there were Americans plus some locals. Very good tap selection (more than 20) and because of crowd you couldn’t even order bottled beer (many people were just drinking their beers on the street). To bad that place is limited with space, but in future certainly a must visit place in Paris.
Visited on Wednesday March 12th 2014, just after opening. Nice place not too far from Père Lachaise. Ambiance was good, not too loud. Service was excellent and helpful. Selection is really good with 20 tap lines, including some really nice beers (Cantillon Oude Lambik, Saison Dupont, De La Senne Brussels Calling and more). Some nice bottles too. Value is fair for the area for beers on tap (6 Euros for a 25 cl of Cantillon Lambik and 4 for Saison Dupont). Price for bottles are somewhat expensive. Overall, this is a really nice place that I will visit again for sure.
I went back at night (Friday) and it was pretty crowded (not enough place to sit). I won’t change my rating, but if you are a calm ticker, go early.
@ 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!
Endroit visité le mardi 12 mars vers 20h30. Ambiance: L’endroit était plein car je suis tombé sur une soirée de la brasserie Nogne O avec la présence du brasseur. Service: Hyper sympathique et très connaisseur des produits offerts. Sélection: Vingtaine de fûts français et importés. Nourriture: On y trouve trois assiettes froides que je n’ai pas goûté. (213e rating d’établissement)

Been many, many times now. Still a top notch place, but there are 2 problems that one should be aware of. 1) It is, especially later in the evening, so busy that you are hard pressed to find any place to stand(!). Service is still speedy enough, but no time for a chat any more. 2) The atmosphere has increasingly become one of Parisian bobo’s, which I personally like less than before. On the other hand, they still do a great job with getting French craft beer and prices are for Paris still reasonable.
Old rating: Recommended by so many, so I had to drop by. Was the first to arrive, but they already had time for a good chat. Classy modern interior, Arctic Monkey album playing in the back. The guy at the bar was very friendly, spoke English very well and had a noticeable passion for tasty beer. They just had a small Dupont festival - normally I would happily go along with that(!), but of course I was here for the French micros. Taste nice, modern interpretations of classic Belgian/French styles, with full flavour. Didn’t try it, but their charcuterie looked great. Prices were very reasonable (about 4,5 euro per glass). Their 20 taps should do the trick, each served in great looking glass, but they also have a whole lot of bottles, half of which were on the paper flipcard menu. Close to the metro, so a must visit when in Paris.
Good music, good ambiance and most important, good beer selection. Beer menu is about half french and half interrnational. Servers are very knowledgeable. All beers served in Teku glass. A little bit expensive, but hey, you’re in Paris.
A very pleasant little bar, nicely set up, not by any means empty but fairly quiet on a Monday evening. Decent beer selection on tap, mostly hoppy pales/stouts on my visit but that’s ok by me - the ones I tried were pretty decent. Some French, some imported. Not the cheapest beer I’ve ever bought, that’s for sure, at around €5 per half measure 25cl - at €9-10 a pint that’s almost Scandi prices! Enjoyable spot though.
Visited this small bar 120m from the nearest metro station on a week night and found a bustling place with the crowd spilling out onto the street in front. Interior space is fairly small. Service was good and we had four French beers ranging from ok to good. Enjoyed my visit very much.
