I’ve been asking around after last week’s shocker and some locals pointed me to the Latin Quarter, where I found a Brewberry. On one side of the cobbled street is a bar with 20 taps and opposite is an offie. The tap room had growlers on display but no filling station so I sampled all the beers and hopped across the stones to the bottleshop. Ben, a true Parisian whose English is decent, sent me packing with a selection of France’s finest and a contender forTiny Rebel’s 5.2% red.  Les Brasseurs du Grand Paris  are based North West of Paris and their Porte Dorée provided proper competition. It pours deep red and smells fantastic – a tasty number if a little thin on the finish. Unfortunately for France, Tiny Rebel’s champion beer of Britain reined supreme and ran out with the win. Scant consolation after super-subs Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge got the England party going at #Euro2016. Fans of England, Wales and Cwtch can find it at no. 7 East Street.
