Hello to all -- a quick question. My husband and I are heading to Paris next weekend for a short trip and I wondered if anyone could suggest some good places serving interesting, artisan beers. I am a wine drinker, but while my husband will drink wine with meals when other options aren't available, he always prefers beer (small producers, interesting flavors, never "lite"... he's deep into beer like many Chowhounders are into wines). So... will there be a beer option at many bistros? Or is wine always du rigeur? And if not, are there good places to go to try some interesting European brews we might not be able to find here in Boston?
Oh: we have reserved at L'Os a Moelle and L'Epi Dupin and plan to wander and snack/drink/picnic our way through the remaining 3 days... oysters here, a baguette and a bag of fruit from the market there, tartines, charcuterie and cheese plates from wine/beer bars, etc. Hoping to eat well on completely limited funds (the hotel is a fortune!!). We will be staying in the 1st but we're more than willing to travel by Metro, and I speak French so even hidden-away places shouldn't be too much of a challenge.
Thanks in advance!
