Cool bar in a quiet ‘hood of Paris. They have two locales, one is the bar (with 20 taps) and across the street is the restaurant (6 taps and 42 bottles). We visited the bar and it is cozy but tiny so it got packed fast.

Friendly service, English spoken and what’s best about la Mousse- they serve beer from France mostly, with a bunch of Belgians as well (Gueuze Tilquin). And make no mistake, there is no Kronenbourg 1662 here! All craft, all the time.

Prices from 2 euro to 7 euro for TIlquin, and brews from Trouble Brewing, Vallee de Chevreux, Thiriez, de la Senne, Grand Paris, Outland (West Coast IPA, good), Garrigues/de Ranke + 1 Freigeist, 1 Prairie Somewhere, 1 Cidre. They serve growlers! Friendly bartenders.

The restaurant makes the food and you can order it at the bar, although I would recommend going to the resto because it will be less busy and you can still get beers from the bar. They also have different taps, and bottles from France, Belgique, Denmark, Lancelot XII, USA (Karl Strauss). Small menu of small plates like veal tartare, salmon tataki, cheese… will try next time.

Great spot in quiet area in the back of a Paris neighborhood.

Many people hanging outside in the cobblestone streets enjoying their beers.

Nice bar with a large selection of all craft taps. Many are from France and the surrounding European countries. A few American selections on tap on my trip including Prairie BA Bible Belt. I went for a few local hoppy options.

Also has a large bottle menu which included many lambics including Cantillon and 3F. We shared a bottle of Iris and St. Gilloise. Both served in a lambic basket and expertly decanted into 4 branded teku classes.

We spoke minimal French and were able to interact with the bartender and clientele easily.

Overall a great place to grab some beers in Paris, especially if you are looking to get away from some of the rowdier districts.

Small bar with enormous beer selection. We arrived at the end of their 5th anniversary party but were warmly welcomed and promptly served. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful in describing their beers. Next time I go I'll bring beers to share

It wasn't a sunny afternoon the day I went to La Fine Mousse but it was filled with people having their beers at the counter. The number of taps could easily reach 15 or 20. The selection, not being the best I've ever seen, was good enough to have a Cantillon which enabled me to have a real sour beer for the first time. Service was impeccable.

Great vibe, classic tight Parisien space. Fantastic service from the staff who really knew the menu in and out. Selection is great - I was able to try multiple French beers. They were also heavy on Italian beers and had a strong presence of Belgian beers. The vintage cantillon was a cherry on top. Great food at the restaurant - good for Paris, exceptional for beer bars. Highly recommended.

It's easy to fixate on the selection of lambics, which makes this a worthwhile destination. The service is great too and the people are very nice. The draft selection is very localized. This is not necessarily a bad thing. It is also reasonably priced. I am a huge fan of this bar.

Good place to stop by while in Paris, but I didn't have the best service (yet very typical of my visit to Paris). Nice beer selection!

Small bar on a quiet side street in Paris with tons of character. 20 beers on tap when I visited in August 2015, with a nice representation of French and other European Brewers, plus a beer from one of my favorite American breweries (Prairie).

The staff were very friendly and accommodating of my terrible French. They even helped me get connected to wifi so that I could write this review. I would definitely visit again.

Very local neighborhood bar with great selections especially with the Belgian beers. Nice draft of often changing beers mainly from France and Belgium. Nice atmosphere and knowledgeable staff.

Great little beer bar in a very local neighborhood. The draft selections are great, and they have many local beers to choose from. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A great spot to grab a beer and relax.

My wife plans our vacations assiduously, particular scouting out gems like this one. Great vibe, interesting selection of beer, and superior glassware. When we were there the draft list included Machete DIPA from Del Ducato, Hemel & Aarde IRS from De Molen, and Hel & Verdoemenis IRS from De Molen as well. Highly recommend!

Marvelous place. We happened upon it the night of a BFM pairing dinner. Six courses later, we we hooked. Fantastic, sophisticated food (and to me, BFM is the Jolly Pumpkin of Europe -- great!). As a somewhat choice-deprived Texan, I saw a beer selection that was pretty evenly spread across France, Belgium and Italy, with a few selections from the US (Brooklyn) and Canada (Dieu du Ciel), among others. Selection shifts constantly. Note that we were on the restaurant side only (across the side street from the bar that was so packed that people were flowing into the street). No taps, but a very nice, quiet dining experience. And with wonderful beer, no less.
