Discover the best beers that French micro brewers are offering now!


Craft Beer has only started to be a thing not longer than five years ago in Paris and in France.
We can find a great diversity of bars, tap rooms, small breweries and beer shops that are selling very special craft beers.
You just need to know where to go, and most times these places are not located in touristy areas but in the neighborhoods where families, workers, students and artists live.

During this tour, I will take you to different spots, all very close to each others, where we will drink French craft beers and meet the people that work behind this scene!

You will see another part of Paris and have a good load of beer!

Itinerary

We will start at l'Atalante, a bar that has the best selection of international and French micro breweries beers on tap.
We will all get a glass of beer to cheer and get to know each other, and let me explain how the beer industry works in Paris.
Then we will go for a short tasting session in a small bottle shop where we will try the best French beers and cover different styles of beers.
We will then finish with the micro brewery visit, and taste one of their best seller, the dark saison with French hops, or anyone you are interested in.
From there, you can go have dinner in one of the restaurants located in the area, or check out the other beer places in Paris with the few addresses I will give you.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Address or Intersection

End Point Options: Address or Intersection

Duration: 2 hours

The tour usually last for 2 hours but it can be shorter or longer depending how many different spots you want to check out. The beer places are all 5 minutes walking distance from each other, but you might want to see other microbreweries that are further away and need to take the metro or uber to get there.

Transportation

Walking tour:
We will meet at the bar directly, but you can use metro lines 5 or 7 and walk to the meeting point very easily.
Taxis and ubers should be able to drop you just in front of l'Atalante.

What’s Included

  • Guiding Services

Other: A informational introduction to the 19th quarter of Paris, it's historical past, and it's contemporary life.
A walking tour of the neighborhood and a visit of a small micro brewery.
A presentation of the craft beer scene in France, and a tasting workshop of at least five different beers.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

30 Euro - If you want to buy dinner or more drinks than the samples I will get you, and if you need to pay for the metro ticket, it's better to prepare some extra cash, although all places accept credit cards

What’s Extra

  • Public Transportation Tickets

Other: I highly recommend that you buy some beers to take home at the bottle shop where we'll have the tasting. They have the best selection and some beers you will never find back home.
Bring your own backpack if you want to carry them easily, if not they provide 6 pack cartons boxes.

Restrictions

I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you inside of the historical monuments

I only speak English and French but I can understand Spanish

I don't want to drive in Paris as public transports are great.

A Recent Review of this tour

Great tour!! Coming from the US with such a mature micro brewing culture it was really fun to learn about the up and coming beer scene in Paris....and of course try a few of the local beers. Clementine was a fun, kind, and knowledgable host. It was great fun learning about Paris beer and getting to know her. Also, she recommended and reserved us a table at the best restaurant that we ate at in Paris. We never would have found this one without her. Thank you Clementine!
