It all started about 200 years ago, in the provinces of Alsace and Lorraine. These lands were known for large breweries and numerous beer bars, which, along with beer, offered visitors a light snack. Although France is more of a country of wine, these beer restaurants have arisen mainly because of the proximity of these lands to today's Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium.
In July 1870, the Franco-German wars began (both sides today accuse each other at the beginning of this war). As a result of the war, flows of refugees moved to the north of France (to Paris), thanks to which the first beer restaurant was opened in Paris. People who knew how to brew beer and cook delicious food made great strides. So there were brasseries.
The purpose of the return of Alsace and Lorraine to France became the basis of the First World War. At the end of this, these territories returned to France. This was followed by a massive resettlement of local residents in Paris and other cities, and, consequently, the rapid spread of brasseries.
In the 20s of the twentieth century, an “Art Deco” style began to develop in Paris, which is an integral part of the exterior and interior of the brasseries ... Because of this, at present, this style of architecture is associated with brasseries.
Over time, thanks to a merger with the local culture, the Parisian brasseries experienced a change. It is important that at the initial stage of the spread of the brasseries, the Parisian elite with good wine spoiling rarely visited the brasseries, but as it turned out, this period in France coincided with bad years in terms of fertility, and because of the lack of good wine, visitors temporarily switched to beer and whiskey.
So the brasseries became in Europe, the first democratic spaces where the borders between classes were removed. These were the places where Jules Verne, Ernest Hemingway, Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel usually ate.
A visit to high-class representatives led to improved service.
