In the charming Butte-aux-Cailles neighborhood, Jaclyn and Pierre Gidel’s small but well-organized shop houses an impressive library of local and international beers. Notable brews include Siren from England, the Alsatian Bendorf, and American beer Cigar City. The couple are very involved in the Paris craft beer scene, co-hosting the weekly Hoppy Hour events at Les Trois 8, organizing beer and cheese tasting nights with Fromagerie Quatrehomme, renting out kegs, and even posting recipes for cooking with beer on the shop’s website. If the trek down to the 13th makes you thirsty, you can pop over to nearby café Le Barrault-Vins and enjoy your beers on the terrace there for a €1 corkage fee.
In Other Words
HIP Paris (2014) “This chill little shop in the 13th is run by a friendly couple with good taste in beer. Hailing from Florida and France respectively, Jaclyn and Pierre are happy to help you choose from among their selection of European and American beers.”
Le Bonbon (2013) “Vous avez compris, il y a de tout, des bières au laurier, au chanvre, à la noisette, au chocolat, fumées, des bières épicées, macérées avec du litchi ou de la noix de coco, certaines avec du moût de raisin…”
