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.

A fantastic tour! If you are into ordinary beer served in ordinary places then this is not the tour for you. If you think the French can only make wine, then you will be amazed. If you want to expand your knowledge about French beer and locally made brews, try some exceptional and truly unique beers and drink them at extraordinary places, then do not miss this tour. Phil knows beer. Phil knows where to find beers you would never be able to find on your own. Phil knows where to go to drink beer that you would never even know existed if you had not lived in Paris for a very long time and maybe not even then. Better still, he does all this without being the least bit pretentious or snooty. You will be friends within a few minutes of meeting him and feel like you have been friends your whole life before the end of the tour. I will do this tour again the next time I come to Paris. Do your self a favor and make sure you have time to do this. Heck, I would got to Paris just for this and plan the rest of my trip around it.

Phil did a fantastic job hosting this beer tour! It was a great introduction to the French craft beer scene, and he went above and beyond in tailoring the experience to my preferences and, specifically, to my hope to talk to a brewing practitioner. Highly recommended for any craft beer drinkers.

Our evening with Phil was the best time of our entire week in Paris! He is a lot of fun, knows his stuff, and is incredibly generous. If you enjoy trying new brews and can book this experience with Phil - since he only does it a couple of times each month - you will be glad you did. I can't say enough about this experience - great beer, great food, and truly great company! Thanks so much, Phil!

My wife and I had a blast with Phillip. The experience was everything he promised it would be a then some. Phillip really knew he stuff and is fluent in the languages of both French and Beer. And, of course, we drank some truly incredible beers with some very friendly people. If you are in Paris and you enjoy good beer, don't even hesitate booking this tour with Phillip. Just do it.
