Beer…It’s Not Just a Guy Thing Anymore

Sorry to break this to you guys, but beer isn’t just a guy thing anymore. Nor has it been for quite some time!

Meet Elisabeth Pierre, bièrologue, a French woman who is an expert on beer, and more specifically, artisanal beer. We had the occasion to meet her at Qui Plume la Lune restaurant in Paris where we asked her to talk about her career while we captured it on video. In the video, she talks about how she first became interested in beer, what she does as a beer expert, some of the top chefs with whom she has collaborated, and the history of beer brewing in France.

Pour yourself some suds, sit back, and enjoy the video!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Florent Deneubourg, brewmaster of Zymotik, an artisanal brewery located in Montreuil, a suburb of Paris. After tasting his Toreo Malto, a toasted-barley beer, I knew that I would forever be a true fan of artisanal beers!

I produced the video below to help him promote his brewery. Apart from a handful of microbrewery beer pubs in Paris, Deneubourg’s is the only commercial artisanal brewery in the area.

I wrote an article on artisanal beer production in France for the November issue of Paris Insights, our monthly newsletter about history, culture, and contemporary life in the City of Light. Click here to read the abstract.

The Frog at Bercy Village is located in one of the wine warehouses that have been preserved at Bercy Village, once the largest wine depot in the world, now an outdoor shopping mall. As well as operating as a restaurant, this establishment is also a microbrewery that produces and serves its own beer.

We dined there and then interviewed the assistant manager, Alex Beaufrère, and the brewmaster, Michael Gilmore, to learn about artisanal beer production. Our review of the restaurant and our report on artisanal beer production can be found in the November issue of Paris Insights, our monthly newsletter about history, culture, and contemporary life in the City of Light. Click here to read the abstract of the article.
