After a year in Montpellier, I’m updating my review (original text below).
This is one of the two great beer bars in town (the other being Coulerus de bieres, not too far away).
The tap selection definitely caters to the French love for stronger/sweeter Belgian beers (delirium, karmelit, kwak, etc), though this is starting to change.
Recently, they have had Brooklyn Lager and IPA on tap, and I have been told that new taps will be added soon, that will give a bit more variety and some more bitter-styled beers.
There’s a pretty large bottle selection, with a lot of Belgians (some gueuze as well) and a few Americans.
They have a show space downstairs that leans heavily (like most of Montpellier!) towards the rock/metal side of things. It’s a pretty eclectic and friendly crowd, though, and it’s easy to become a regular if you’re not too careful.
The staff are all super friendly (disclosure, I’m friends with most of them now), and it’s definitely a fun place to spend an evening .
A fun place in Montpellier -- we were there pretty much every night of our visit this month.
Like most of Montpellier, it had a pretty student-y crowd, especially at happy hour (or on Monday’s quiz night), but there was plenty of space every time we went (especially since all the smokers stand out on the sidewalk)
I stuck mostly to the lambic beers, since I can’t get them at home, but they had a good selection of bottles and taps at (I think) reasonable prices.
I didn’t eat there, but it looked like food is limited to sausage, cheeses, snacks, etc.
They also apparently have a show space downstairs where they have regular bands/djs/etc.
Definitely worth a stop off if you’re in town -- I bought a shirt!
It’s also not far (a bit of a walk or a tram ride) from Couleurs de Bieres (which was closed both times I tried to go...)

A student bar, but one that has a little more class than most. Apparently they regularly have concerts in the basement. Fairly small, and fills up quickly. The selection is decent, but not that big, mostly standard Belgians. Service was OK. I doubt they have 300 bottles, maybe half of that.

Huge range of draught beer! Cool people, lot of student, live music in the basement. One of the best place in Montpellier.
