I was looking for craft beers in Paris. Went to frog and princess yesterday, because it was close to my hotel. Super busy with normal young party people and quite bland beers. This is a serious beer bar. The signs did not look promising from the outside, but inside the carte had a lot of good stuff at excellent prices.... More

Researched craft beer locations prior to this trip, this place is rated well and is steps from our hotel. I am delighted I can find classic Belgian beers on my first trip to Paris. Current tap list matches pictures from previous posts. Good selection of beer on tap and in bottles - Triple Karmeleit on tap, Trappistes Rochefort 6, 8,... More

This was a wonderful stop. It is a cozy place with wonderful beer on tap. We love hoppy beer and they had plenty. Plus the bartender was knowledgable on his beer and was great with his recommendations. We brought our kids and he was kind enough to let us bring in two pizzas so they had food (since they weren't... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place. Craft beer in Paris has only become a reality within the last two years according to the owner. The food is excellent as well. But the biggest highlight is the staff, who give AAA+ service. Conveniently located next to the Gare De Lyon train station, it became our go-to place, even... More
