France in known for more than its wines and spirits as the Paris Beer Festival makes its triumphant return for its milestone 10th iteration this May.
Organized by the Paris Beer Club, this libation-laced extravaganza will run from May 8 to 14, 2023, and promises to be a veritable feast for the senses for all aficionados of craft beers.
It showcases the vibrant craft beer scene in Paris, produced by small, independent breweries using traditional brewing methods, with a focus on quality, flavor, and innovation. These breweries typically produce limited quantities of beer and prioritize using high-quality hops, malted barley, and yeast.
The result are brews characterized by its unique flavors, aromas, and styles, which can range from traditional styles like lagers and ales to more experimental styles like sour beers, IPAs, and stouts. The craft beer movement has gained popularity in recent years, with many beer enthusiasts seeking out new and interesting flavors and supporting local, independent breweries.

Visitors to the festival will have the chance to revel in the glory of craft and independent brews at various participating locations throughout Paris and Île-de-France — from tasting workshops to tantalizing food and beer pairings (who could resist the allure of beer and cheese?), and learn how beer is produced through informative brewing demonstrations.
But the true pièce de résistance of this boozy bacchanal will take place on May 13 and 14 at Ground Control, just three minutes walk from Gare de Lyonin the 12eme. Nearly 60 local and international microbreweries will converge for a Grand Final that is sure to be the hoppiest of happenings. parisbeerfestival.fr
