Following in the footsteps of the US craft beer movement, the French are developing small, independent breweries. Hop on our tour of the best microbreweries in and around Paris.
If Parisian life does not leave you enough leisure time to tour breweries and beer shops to fix your craft cravings, HopBuddy has the solution: get them delivered to you. Right, HopBuddy does not technically qualify as a Parisian brewery, but it is the next best thing. Download the app to your smartphone or use the website to shop for beers online. You will find them all: BAPBAP, La Goutte d’Or, Brasserie de l’Être… and then some more. HopBuddy goes the extra mile and delivers fresh beers by bike in one hour (two hours if you are in the suburbs) to your house, your office, and even your picnic spot. A 24-hour delivery is possible across France.
What a better way to end this tour of Parisian breweries than with Paris Beer Week? The festival gathers brewers and drinkers who share the same passion for quality, independent and creative breweries. It takes place annually in the different beer bars in and around Paris. The closing event gathers more than 45 craft brewers and has 90 different craft beers on tap: a real heaven. To make things even better, there is also music all night long.
