My curiosity was instantly piqued when I walked past the Hop Chope, situated two streets over from mine. With tomorrow being my first proper day I made a point of nipping in straight from work. Great vibes for somewhere that has only been opened 5 months. The owner was a super sound guy, and after explaining to him that I enjoy the extremes of hoppiness to stoutiness (“torréfier” in French, in case you were wondering), I was happy to let him choose for me. By all accounts I am the proprietor of one of the last two Mikkeller / To Øl Underall Galaxy’s in Toulouse. I’ve found my grog shop.
