This is a unique place in Lyon: they have a broad variety of beers and a very (really very) specialized staff in anything related to beers. Just go to the place, and let the waiters amaze and please you; reading the beer menu is useless (the waiters will even get a bit annoyed by that), just have a chat with them and tell them what kind of beer you wish to have and listen to their suggestions, or just ask them to surprise you, they will be very informative and funny (although sometimes their humor is a bit rude), by the way: don't rush to ask for the first beer you can! Once you give the guy an idea of what beer you'd like, ask him to taste it first, he'll bring you a glass with a zip of it so if you don't like it he'll offer something else. They also sell food, but you want to go there just for the beer experience.
Some (rather negative) things to keep in mind:
- The place is usually packed, so if you go with a big group (more than 4 people) try to book in advance.
- It's not a cheap place! But it's totally worth it.
- Unfortunately if you don't speak good French the experience won't be the same since the language barrier will obviously hinder the expressiveness and humour of the waiters.
Bonne dégustation !
