A new Cave a Bieres opening in the neighborhood-near the market street rue de Levis. It is a boutique beer cave-filled with select brews from Belgium and Holland mostly, as well as a wall of English and international beers-including my favorite Mexican beer, Negro Modelo. I saw one guy buying Red Stripe, the Jamaican lager-which is good, not really compared the Belgian and Holland beers-but clearly was chosen for its origin.They also have the American customer system of points and if you reach 100 you get a free large bottle or a six-pack of you choice. Not that I need any encouragement to buy more or anything.

There are (or were..) two other similar places in Paris - one on the Rue St Maur, and one in the Rue Quincampoix (parallel to the Pompidou Centre). The problem is that beer is probably at its worst when drank from a bottle!
