Best craft beer bars in Paris
Planning a night out in Paris, but where to find some good craft beer? Luckily, Paris is home to some of the best French craft beers. Thus, there are plenty of beer bars in Paris you can visit.
Before there were beer bars and beer gained popularity, there were cafes in Paris with a beer licence. In the 13th century, Paris saw the first cafe with permission to sell beer. Before that, people could buy beer from the brewers. Luckily, those days are over, and now we can enjoy a good beer in a proper beer bar.
Best beer bars in Paris for craft beer
Though there are numerous bars in Paris where you can enjoy craft beer, we have put together a list of some of our favourites and unique places worth visiting. Don’t forget that there are also plenty of craft beer breweries in Paris that you can directly visit to taste their beer.
Here’s a list of some of the top bars in Paris to enjoy craft beer:
Brussels Beer Project
One of our favourite Belgian craft beer breweries has also opened up a taproom in Paris! We are maybe biased, but we cannot leave the Brussels Beer Project out of this list. If you have tasted their beers, you know why. The Brussels Beer Project has a taproom called Pigalle. And guess where it is located? On Brussels street! The Parisian community have been very happy about this. The Pigalle has even been elected as the best beer bar in Paris by TimeOut.
Brussels Beer Project Pigalle
One of our favourite Parisian breweries, BAPBAP, also has a bar next to their microbrewery. You can drink 8 of their beers on tap and get the rest in bottles. And if you do love their beer, you should get the growler bottle. It is a glass bottle of 1.89 L made to be reused and refilled with beer!
The name fits perfectly with this craft beer bar. The bar is particularly focused on hoppy beers. So if that is your favourite style, then this is the beer bar for you! You can find french craft beers from breweries like La Dilettante, Bendorf and Piggy Brewing, but also some international craft beers.
La Moustache Blanche

They will also surprise you with a selection of beers from breweries in the United States. These beers are hard to find in Paris.
Le Supercoin is perfect for hanging out. Every month, they organise events to celebrate one selected brewery. The brewery then comes and presents their beer. Each month, you can get to know a new brewery. Otherwise, you can drink beers from Craig Allan, O’Clock and the Spore brewery.
