My Top 5 Places to Get the Best Beer in Lyon

My Top 5 Places to Get the Best Beer in Lyon, Lyon, France (B)

I am not the specialist on beer at all! But I live with one very good Beer Specialist who has been educating me well about those drinks, their types, tastes, quality etc. I am not saying here about drinking too much but about the french way of beer degustation. Because in France each food, meal, a drink has to be discussed! Did you notice? French talk about food a lot! Even more than I do.

Anyway, as you can imagine, I have been spending a lot of time in the Lyonnais pubs, bars, restaurants where you can get a very good beer. So not experienced myself the taste of the beer in Lyon, I have been observing, listening, and registering the feedbacks. Now I feel I really know at least the top 5 best but really best places where you can get the very good beer in Lyon (I know there are more)! So let me tell you about them now…

This is not only a beer bar but the whole Lyonnais story & pride…Ninkasi is the brand of beer, a brasserie and a French concert hall. It is the local brewery which has 12 locations around the city and in each of them you are sure to get a very good french beer! It was founded in 1997 by Christophe Fargier in Gerland in Lyon. It is a symbol of Lyon although it has started to spread and the bar – restaurant network is now located in Tarare, Les Menuires and St Romain en Gal. Ninkasi offers real artisanal beers so to taste it, it’s an experience not to be missed in Lyon. I just need to add that they do food as well and it’s heavy! Heavy but very tasty burgers, chips and salads. Heavy but so good! Try it if you have a chance. It’s an experience indeed. Pints from 4,5 Euro. Addresses: 12! ......
