Super moment passé à Lille avec l'équipe de l'échappée Bière à tester sans modération ! We had a really great time with the "l'échappée Bière" team around the old city Lille, it is something you have to try & taste ;)

Great way to discover the city in a fun and entertaining way. Well selected beers and bars. Some in our group don't drink beer but that was not an issue at all. Easy to replace by wine, soft and tea or coffee
