Beer in Southern France??

We will be making a trip to Biot this summer and we've read that beer is not popular in Southern France. Just wondering if anyone can clarify: Is beer typically available in restaurants? Are there pubs/bars in or around Biot that would server beer? Any recommendations for a good local beer or place to go enjoy a beer? Thanks for any help!!

Who told you this nonsense? You can get beer in every bar and cafe in France, as for Biot I have only been to the beach but there are vendors there who sell beer

Beer is by far a more popular drink in the North & East of France as wine is in the South, purely because historically these are the production areas.

But as the previous postings you'll have no problems getting beer in the South.

Regarding a local beer unless somebody says otherwise I would doubt very much you finding a local brew in this part of France.

The French would be on strike within seconds if a demi-litre of Kronenborg 1664 wasn't available in every village!

In Biot, lager is as available as a bottle of red wine, so fear not!
