This place was right next to my hotel, and given that Paris is more wine-centric than beer, I was excited to find a place that featured beer. A bit disappointing, as it is kinda dusty and a bit divey. Really, it's just a local pub for college kids who don't care much about atmosphere. They have a good bottle list and about a dozen taps, mostly belgian or netherlands. I had the De Koninck Amber, and it was in good shape. Didn't try food as it was very late. Given the lack of beer-centered places in Paris, this place is worth a try if you're in the neighborhood, but not worth a special trip.

From our apartment on the Ile de St. Louis, Biere Academy is the closest and I had high hopes of a good bar with an easy walk for a daily night cap. Recently added on BeerAdvocate, it had no reviews yet and should note be confused with the Academie de la Biere.

On a Saturday night, it was completely dead and we took a seat at a table and ordered a couple of beers. The Lindeman's Faro was good, but the Huyghe Artevelde seemed very off. I tried to order safer for the next one: Delirium Nocturnum, but it seemed to not be 100% either.

And after a week in Belgium, I was disappointed that nothing was served in its proper glass. Overall, a huge waste of time and money, and I will not be returning at all.
