Paris is known for many things: its monuments, its culture, its monument, it history, and, of course, its wine. It’s certainly not the place one thinks of for great-tasting craft beer. But things are changing fast! Today, Paris is undergoing a beer renaissance, with microbreweries (microbrasseries, in French) opening throughout the city. Here you can explore where to find great craft beer in Paris!
Like many places, the beer scene in Paris is dominated by a few big commercial players, generally selling flavorless lager. As the craft beer scene grows, more and more cafes and bars are offering a few locally-brewed artisanal beers. Yet each month, new stores, bars and restaurants are opening that provide a large selection of both local and European artisanal beer. This site is dedicated to helping visitors find those gems in the City of Lights!
