What's the first thing to drink that you think of when you think of "France?" - Wine, right? And for good reason - wine and France have been bound together in history and culture for nearly two millennia - since the Romans invaded Gaul and saw that the soil was perfect for grapes, and told the Gauls that if they wanted to be "Roman" cool, they'd have to start drinking wine.
But what many people don't know is that France has both a long history with, and a recently growing appreciation of: BEER.
My name is Phil, and I'm the founder of the Paris Homebrewers' Club. I'll take you on a tour of both well-established as well as up-and-coming French craft brewers, let you in on the secret that is the long history of French brewing, and of course, we'll have a few pints.
French beer tasting at THE craft beer bar in Paris: La Fine Mousse - a minimum of 8 different 12 cl (4 oz) tastings; additional beers available at cost if desired.
Additional extra, If desired: curated bottle purchasing at the highest-rated bottle shop in all of France, La Cave a Bulles. Note that if you wish to do this, it will need to come before the tasting as LFM opens at 5 PM and CaB closes at 8.
I'm an American, originally from Arkansas, then Tampa, then Arkansas again, then Chicago, then New York, then Chicago again, and now Paris. I'm passionate about craft beer, good cookin', da Bears, da Cubs, Drupal, woodworking, gardening, physics, astronomy, kayaking, road trips, honky tonk and bluegrass (and pretty much every other kind of music)... The list goes on. I love to take advantage of every experience life has to offer, with the exception of going to the prefecture, and paperwork in general.
