Baton Rouge

Bayou-themed Baton Rouge is a high-end dive that’s strategically manufactured, but still thoroughly enjoyable. It’s rowdy, rollicking good fun; the tone is set by the twangy soundtrack and good-natured staff, who set down a bowl of peanuts immediately upon your arrival and actively encourage you to

Superbieres

Bright and welcoming, this little shop near the Canal Saint Martin carries a large selection of French beers and a nicely curated selection of imports. There is even a seasonal house beer, brewed in collaboration with Brew Unique. Nico, the rock-drummer-turned-beer-aficionado owner, serves up sandwiches

Deck & Donohue

Since opening their brewery in early 2014, Thomas Deck and Mike Donohue have been on a roll. With five flagship beers and one rotating seasonal brew, they make some of Paris’ best beer and sell it to many quality restaurants and bars in the city.

Hop Malt Market

The service is friendly and enthusiastic at this small, erratically-stocked shop. Look for the newest arrivals on the shelf right in front where lesser-known French beers hobnob with Belgian stalwarts and imports from further afield. Prices are very reasonable, especially for local and large-format beers.

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

Biérocratie

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

BAPBAP

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,

CopperBay

The bright, expansive bar at CopperBay is a nice antidote to the cramped, dark speakeasies that make up much of the Parisian cocktail scene. It’s unpretentious and accessible, from the perspective of pricing – cocktails start at 10€, which is far lower than most other

Laurent Favre-Mot

Between the chocolate mustache-topped sable sandwich cookies that resemble an inside-out Oreo, the “f*cking dark” chocolate tarts topped off with chocolate skulls, or a lemon cream in between sesame madeleines disguised as a hamburger, this pastry shop can feel a bit too self-consciously cool. Thankfully,
