This is rather a smart bottle shop in Lille old town. It does have the feel of being in an abbey with rather hushed tones as people seriously inspect their prospective purchases. A little pricey but a good and interesting range. Certainly worth finding.
Bottle shop in Lille, owned by the same guy as la capsule. The interior is very nice, it looks very clean and ’crafty’. The most expensive beers are behind locks, which makes them look extra cool. The beers offered were mostly French, some Belgian ones ( can’t believe those absurdly low prices !!! They have a cantillon Magnum ( 1 each in the Brewery at 25 euro ) in France for 30 euro, not even sure if limited. I was being respectfull for the French geeks and didn’t take any, but damn, I was in doubt to take all ! other ’bics are also very low priced, which just proves that they’re not trying to reip people off. Some other internationnal beers, spotted a few US ones, a few European ones,... The service was a bit less here, as they were to buisy having a chat ( both of them, with the same customer) to help us out. Anyway, this might be a once-as-an-acception thing. Still the best of the 3 bottleshops we visited to me.
Located in a picturesque side street of the already picturesque Lille, this little shop is packed with beer, a lot of it quite rare , but with other regoinal specialties as well. Very good prices, the 18 Euro bill surprised me very positively in this case, considering how many beers I’ve packed. A must visit when in the city, by all means!
Beautiful bottle shop well located in Le Vieux Lille. The interior is nice and the beer are well displayed. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Selection isn’t too big, but the quality is definitely there and the prices are very good! I was able to pick some Cantillon 50N-4E from the shelves! I think I picked every bottle left though. The other Cantillon were at good prices though and the selection was excellent. I was also able to find good Belgian beers that I wasn’t able to find in Brussels for a great price. Some De Molen beers too. The result is that I bought too many bottles for what I was able to carry. Overall, this is a great beer store; one of my favorite so far. Top beer destination in Lille along La Capsule, and both are just few seconds away from each other.
The best place in Lille to find amazing products mostly from Belgium and France like beers, candies, pâté and anything else. For beer and whiskeys amateur there are a great selection for you from al over the world.

Stopped in Lille on our drive back home, but since La Capsule (around the corner) was closed I visited this bottle shop instead. Fairly small yet roomy enough and stocking a good amount of bottles. Layout is a bit confusing but it’s small enough to just look at all that is offered. French micros have a large spot, luckily, and I could find a dozen or so new ticks. Good stuff from other countries too (Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands). Prices were okay, but could be better. Didn’t have time for a chat, but looking at the selection the owner must know what he is doing. Good stuff, nice location.
