For Hop Dads: Unique Brew

There is no shortage of workshops to brew your own beer in Paris, but our favorite is that of the American Mike Gilmore, who has been living in the heart of the Sentier for about seven years. After choosing – alone or in pairs – its style of beer from about thirty recipes (IPA, stout, triple…), we proceed to the selection of malts, barley and hops, before realizing like a little chemist his brew in an imposing pot (not without taking the time to enjoy a few homemade beverages). We then return after a month for the bottling and labeling of 36 50 cl bottles with the name given to them.

Brew Unic. 1, rue des Jeûneurs (Paris 2e). Course: 160 € (for 1 or 2 people), 4 hours (up to 14 pers.). Gift vouchers available.
