Small store, packed with crates in the middle and shelves around the walls. Lots of Belgian beers for average prices, other imports were priced OK. French beers were between 4 and 5 euro for IPAs... Seemed steep to me, but I haven’t been to many other Paris craft beer stores. But it’s definately more expensive than in other cities. Decent enough store, but not a place to load up on beers.
Really important thing : amazing advices thanks to Rémy and David. I go here once or twice a week and i always find something new to drink, next to classics from Ireland, Germany, Belgium, England... anyone can find something, from fucking Coors Light (hard to find in France, many people love that shit) to Double Imperial Wheat Out of Space Crazy Hoppy Thing from Fano.
Nice little store, well decorated. Ambiance and selection are similar to the three other Bières Cultes in Paris. Clerk was friendly and knowledgeable about beer and about beer operations from Bières Cultes. Selection is mostly Belgians (including some Cantillon and 3F) with reasonable prices on not limited Belgian stuff (like Dupont). Decent selection of foreign beers (De Molen, Fano, DDC and others), but a little weak on the French selection. Price are decent for Paris. Good store.
Small shop (one of four Bière Culture shops in Paris already) that nicely decorated. Shopping window is even a bit cheesy. :-) The guy just got a delivery so it was packed as hell. Quite a focus on Belgian stuff, with some fairly standard Anglo-saxons options and 3 shelves of French micros. Still found some new stuff though as I think the turnover is quite fast. Also, and this explains my higher selection rating, offers Dieu de Ciel beers including Péché Mortel for okay prices (around 5-6 euro). So I certainly went away with some good options. Shop employee was friendly and informative. Good for a stop when in the neighbourhood, but not as special as Cave a Bulles (which I think is also because of different target audiences).
Very small shop, but according to me one of the best place in Paris to buy beers (with the other "Bières Cultes" shops in Paris and La Cave à Bulles) !
You’ve got more international beer than in La Cave à Bulles. The seller was quite nice and helpful. Prices are OK.
You’ve got three "Bières Cultes" in Paris :
- Bières Cultes, 14 rue des Halles, Paris 1er
- Bières Cultes, 25 rue Legendre, Paris 17ème
- Bières Cultes, 40 rue Damrémont, Paris 18ème
I didn’t plan to go here but ran into it by accident while going from Sous Bock to AuTrappiste. Ok beer selection but unlike Cave a Bulles it offers more foreign than French beers. I bought six of them and went further.
Very cute little store on Damrémont street, not far from Place de Clichy. The inside is kind of cramped, full of cases of beer that one fit on the shelving. They have a nice selection, and if you’re willing to dish out the euros, you might even be able to buy something unusual, like 2011 HORAL or DeUs for example. The prices on the regular belgian french and even mikkeller products are all within normal range, which makes them cheap for Paris. The lady that was working there when I visited was quite friendly and kind. A pleasant visit and a better selection than I expected for this part of the world.
