My favourite place in Lille. I have to visit there every time I visit the area, just to spend time by the beer shelves. Not a big place but great selection of beers, local, belgian and further foreign ones too. Decent prices which are not even too much more than in the big market chains in the area. At least I can’t complain when comparing to Finnish prices. They had even Westvleteren 12 gift packages with trappist glass and 6 beers, the price of that was a bit too much for me though.
Fairly small beer shop yet stocking big amount of bottles. It’s true the layout is a bit confusing but it’s small enough to check every single beer. Found a lot of rarities at very reasonable prices. There’s also a good collection of independent bottling of whiskeys.Friendly owner who knows what he’s doing.
2013.08 - visiting Lille with my sister - located in the old quarter - nice selection of French, belgian (amongst them some pretty good gueuze which are rather hard to find), american and other beers -

A great little beer shop with a good selection of French and international beers including Dieu du Ciel. Friendly guy running the place who even threw in an extra 75cl for free!
A good shop in Lille, not the best selection but some really good products.

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.
Fun little touristy shop. quite a lot of Belgian beers, nice local selection, and a couple of great Italians, americans and canadians. bought a peche mortel, noticed the layer of dust on the stone beers. left them on the shelve. Lille has got nice beer places but if you look at the ratings, it most certainly has got a lot of extremely friendly place raters!
Small little beer store in Lille. Decent selection if you only shop in France, instead of across the border 30 minutes in Belgium. Most beers were Belgian, but the French offerings were plentiful compared to anywhere else I’ve been. And most were craft. Decent prices as well. Can’t say much for the service as the single person stayed at the register without offering any assistance. But I really didn’t need much help with the few selections they had. Would return if I was ever in the area again.
