The French live on wine, celebrate with champagne, and crack out the crème de cassis in their mellower moments; yet until recently, their passion for booze didn't quite extend to beer. But in Paris, a new fad for beer merchants and craft breweries is changing things.

Never one to turn down a pint or four, Time Out has checked out the best bars and coolest shops for buying and consuming brewskis – we can barley contain our excitement.
