Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Going to Paris to drink beer (period) sounds wrong."

Well, chacun a son gout, and their type of hangover; living in France I sometimes drink wine and sometimes beer. I wouldn't say it's "wrong" to go to Paris to drink beer, but to spend any of a limited amount of time in Paris "hunting" for beer of various flavours seems not so much "wrong" as a bit sad, and sadly, the Brit habit of just getting pissed seems to be catching on with French youth. Personally, in Paris, I prefer to go to places where I can drink in the ambience, and the particular type of booze is rather secondary, see suggestions.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
