Was hopping from their kick the leg pre-holiday event. Packed with folks. 3 taps one is often on (a Czech craft lager) while two were more special. I chose Super 8 from Theriez & Outland. Prices were good, especially for bottles as they weren’t much more than at bottle shops. Friendly staff and a fun place, I hope to visit again on a regular night sometime.
Visited During Paris Beer Week. Pretty close to the beer store a la biere comme a la biere so decided to check it out. I was really glad that we did so. The ambiance looked like an old city café with enough space to have a small concert or a show. The selection consists of mainly French micro’s on tap and on bottles from all over France. The small but well selected list was well oriented in terms of beer style, brief explanation etc..The bar girl spoke well in English and knew her beers well. Each time while serving the beer she spoke a bit more about it adding to the ambiance and tasting experience. The prices here would be the best deal in Paris when coming to craft beers. Really appreciate the efforts they have taken to introduce some special French beers here. Would highly recommend this place if you are looking to try micro’s from various parts of France. It’s a bit of a journey but well worth the experience.
If La Fine Mousse comes across as a marketing exercise, Le Supercoin comes across as a haphazard collection of decorative elements and people around the essential: fridges containing a selection of bottled beers from the 6 sides of the hexagon that is France (perhaps nothing from Brittany). Not necessarily a wide selection of breweries, but they seemed to have the full catalogue of each. Food is not available in any form, but the barman said that it is possible to buy locally and eat in the bar. One couple had 2 pizzas delivered to their table.
Decent prices: most 75cl bottles @ 9€ and 33cl @ 4€.
