Hmmm, theres a controversial air to this place

The fact that it has a wide selection of unknown or uncommon beers really excites me. This shows how much of the unexplored can be found in paris. From simplest lagers of the urquell sort, to beers completely hidden in the deep woods of, err, the alsace (or lorraine hehe), the selection ranges around some 50 or 60 different beers, including chimays, rocheforts, top notch weizens et all, even some micro ales.

What's the catch? The exponential inflation of the prices. A grande resèrve that can be found in any other place (see: champion, galeries lafayette, monoprix) for a relatively normal price (1.50-2.30 euros) is here presented at over 4.50 euros! the outrageous prices match the monopoly over the market of the mysterious brews, but such abuse upon the customer drives you straight out...with only one or two bottles in hand. Still, nice to admire but to handle with care.

It's probably worth visiting just to see the wide selection of so many wonderful food items from all over the world. But we're on a mission here, so I'm hunting for one particular section. To the side of the wine (of course) is the selection of artisanal beer. And I have to say it's a pretty good selection. Well rounded and bringing many different countries in. As far as French beers go, they had several of Bourganel, Chris Noyon, and Saint Henri if I remember the brewery name correctly. Belgium and Germany also decently represented. They have Corona! Yippee! And also 1664 in an unusual container. It looks like a beer glass with a cap on it. Actually looked cool, but there is absolutely no more room in my bag for anything at this time, so I had to pass. Even though this is a very high end store, the service is about what you would expect from a Whole Foods or something similar. Store is swanky and nice Might as well check it out if in the area.

This place is truly heaven for foodies. Top quality goods, but unfortunately they charge top prices. Go for the fish, meat, cheese, pastries, breads, sauces, spices, to see real Parisians (no tourists spotted here) and, of course, for the beer. A large selection of Belgians, Germans and other assorted Europeans. An interesting and worthy stop in Paris when you are able to splurge on top quality products. Beer selections included: Abbataille Blond, Artisinal Ciders, Jenlan, Viex Lille Blond, Fischer, leffe, Samichlaus, Rodenbach, Guiness, Duchesse Anne, L'Alguille Blond, Advintinous, Franziskaner, Weinstephener, Lindemans Faro, Pecheresse, and Famboise, Rochefort, Westmalle, Chimay x 3, Orval and Duvel
