Stopped in here while visiting family in Paris. Immediately, Simon greeted us at the door, and I introduced myself as someone who enjoys good beer. He and I talked for a while - maybe 20 minutes about beer and he pointed out to me La Triple Brune I.P.A. from La Brasserie de Fleurac, based on my appreciation of IPAs. He was right on. I had been drinking many other styles while on our trip, but this beer hit the spot (which I plan to review the next time I pop one open.) Anyway, a great selection of over 250 bottles. Simon is very knowledgeable and a pure joy to talk with. Definitely a must stop while visiting Paris.

Hands down the best beer store in Paris and located close to most touristic highlights so you should find this close to your hotel, they like to trade French for American beers.

Visited on a Thursday morning less than an hour after the place had opened. There were already other customers in the shop. As this was my last day in Paris and my suitcase was already full and probably overweight, I was only looking for special beers of which I did not see any and thus did not buy beer during my visit. Will definitely stop in the next time I am in Paris for any extended period of time as this is the place to buy and avoid drinking Kronenberg all the time. A good beer store in Europe but just average when compared to the stores I can visit in the US.

V – Bright, clean, open, well laid out. All prices are marked.

Ser – As the one clerk was already busy when I entered I did not interact with anyone in the store. But everyone was friendly

Sel – Plenty of French, Belgian, English and even some US beers to choose from. No sours that I could see during my visit.

One of the highlights of any trip to Paris. Fantastic selection, lots of French craft beers you will not find in the US, and excellent service. They happily trade if you bring them good beers, and will lovingly pack beer for a suitcase ride home if you ask.

Simon and Chris are some of the most hospitable guys in craft beer ive ever met. with an awesome selection in a lively part of town, La Cave A Bulles is a must stop to pick up some bottles and chat up with some local guys who know their beer. Truly ambassadors of craft beer in Paris. They are also open to trades, so feel free to drop them a message!

Simon is the best, plain and simple. Don't just walk in there expecting to find whatever. Talk to the people who work there and they'll guide you. I know that they have a reputation for having certain things, but with the way things are, you don't know anymore. Simon and Chris are great.

A great spot with an amazing selection. The gentleman working helped me pick out some of his favorite French beers, and also some others from around Europe I had never heard of. They had a great selection, including Cantillon and a lot of other Belgians. He was even nice enough to wrap up the bottles in bubble wrap when I told him I was traveling back to the US. I would definitely recommend this spot.

Exceptional staff that has a lot of knowledge about the up and coming craft beer scene in France. They are very nice to foreign travelers and also have plenty of lambics!

there is enough said about this place that I don't need to repeat. top notch store where my wife and I were met by Chris, who went out of his way to help me. I had prepared a list of French beers I wanted to try, and he had most of those, I picked 5 beers up (all I could carry around) great choices of French beers, as well as other countries. a must stop while in paris. they love trades too !

Awesome owners who are very passionate about beer. Small shop but vast selection of great beers that you certainly can't find in the U.S. Very helpful in selecting new beers to try, especially some very tasty French beers. It's a running joke that most people walk in asking for Cantillon, which they have a nice selection of.
