Craft Beer Shop (Angers)

The city of Angers might be better known for its wine, but Stéphane Lesieur has been collecting foamy libations at Donald’s Pub for 18 years now, a bistro that serves an impressive 15 rotating beers on tap. And when he’s not at the pub, you can find him at his Craft Beer Shop, tucked away on one of the thirstiest streets in the city, where the owner fills his shelves with colorful, candy-hued cans: a saline sour from the Garage Beer Co. (€5 for 440 ml), an electrifying Belgian Pale Ale by the Swedes of Beerbliotek (€3 for 330 ml), a decadent IPA made with milk sugar (a sort of sweetened condensed milk) brewed in the suburbs of Washington (€8 for 473 ml)… Bottled beers are in no short supply either, and you’ll find all different styles on display, from the Milkshake IPA to the Imperial Pastry Stout or a Doppelbock. // Rosa Poulsard

Hidden gem: Rosé de Gambrinus, a lambic brewed with raspberries by Cantillon, a major player in the Brussels beer scene (€23 for 750 ml).
