La Cave à Bulles

Simon Thillou’s shop is the place to go for craft beer made in France.  He works with brewers all over the country to source his remarkable and impeccably curated collection of small-batch French beers.  There is a little shelf space set aside for brews from further afield, but these can mostly be found elsewhere for less money.  Focus on the regional French beers – if you don’t know where to start, Simon is more than happy to help find something to your taste, and he speaks English for those shy about their French beer vocabulary.

 An absolute favorite
