This brewery has been making some of Paris’ best beer since it opened in 2014. In 2016, the brewery moved from trendy Montreuil to a larger space in Bonneuil-sur-Marne. It is no longer open to the public, but the beers are available in supermarkets, épiceries, and at many quality restaurants and bars in the city.

In Other Words

Wine Terroirs (2015) This is indeed a very gentle and civilized I.P.A. and for a change I like that (many of the ones I got in the U.S. were in my taste quite excessive in aroma and power) and could finish my glass easily, I give strong recommendations for this I.P.A.”

Brew Unique

Spearheaded by Simon Thillou of La Cave à Bulles and directed by Mike Gilmore, formerly of Frog Pubs, Brew Unique is Paris’ first brew-it-yourself brewery. Newbies can choose from a provided set of beer recipes, and more experienced homebrewers can get pointers on their own creations. Either way, Gilmore guides guests through a four-hour brewing session, followed by bottling about a month later. All the necessary equipment and ingredients are there, and those lucky enough to have space to brew at home can even stock up, as the place moonlights as a homebrew supply shop.

The name stands for brassée à Paris, bue à Paris – “brewed in Paris, drunk in Paris” – and this brewery is decidedly local. Housed in a former parking garage, BAPBAP has enough space not only to mill grain, brew, ferment, bottle, and store beer, but also for visitors to check out the brewing process and then settle in one of the comfy couches in the tasting room or strike up a game on the ping pong table. BAPBAP’s beers are well-built, if not particularly adventurous; favorites include the ShiFuMi summer ale and the Vertigo IPA.
