I am searching for some shops with large (100+) selection of beers from Brittany.

I have two somewhat different targets:

(1) a shop located in Rennes, more than V&B, or around RN 164, see below:

(2) an online shop that ships out of France

Any suggestion?

  • The title puzzled me... Are the beers supposed to be from Brittany ( "caves à bieres bretonnes") or the shops located in Brittany ("caves situées en Bretagne")?

  • Both. The beers are supposed to be from Brittany, and the shops located in Brittany (see image) or online. Oct 8, 2019 at 8:37

Please allow me to recommend the Cave à bières à Rennes : Chez Alain.

The French are more into drinking wine, but this shop does beer a lot of justice.

They have around 350 varieties of beer, both imported and domestic.

It also has a small bar situated on site. What more do you need?

Having been there some years ago, it is awesome.


On-line shops may only do sales on-line and may or may not have an inventory shop to browse in. Some are simply middle men so to speak.

  • "The French are more into drinking wine" - I'd say the French are more known for producing wine... since I have moved here, I've noticed at least as much beer consumed as wine. But, it's true that they consume a lot of both! ;) Nov 10, 2019 at 11:12

Thanks to Ken Graham.

After returning from Brittany, I can say that Chez Alain was a good choice, but a little too international.

I discovered Le marchand de biere in Rennes, not too far from Chez Alain, which I preferred for a larger choice of only local beers.
