Craft beer is becoming more of a thing in Paris. And by Zeus, I can't tell you how late this trend has been in coming. Wine has always been big, cocktails have taken the city by force, now it's time for hops to have their moment.
Below are some of my favourite addresses where you can be sure to get good beer.
Top tips: La Fine Mousse - just behind ESCP Europe, a little further beyond the hip area of Oberkampf, the great vibe, young families makes this almost a French gastro-pub. If only they served food....
With a more grungey feel, I also really like the Supercoin bar, on the rue Baudelique in the 18th. The beer is cheap, the people local and the pizza joint opposite will deliver!
Feel free to ask the barman in established cocktail bars like the Sherry Butt, Grazie and Curio Parlour because their ever-expanding range of beer bottles is also worth discovering.
Finally, if you're looking for a blonde to take home with you, addresses like the Cave à Bulles and LMDW Fine Spirits can provide you with your first choice of nationality.
