Long Description:
[FR] C'est le 27 octobre 1880, que Léonard Lipp et son épouse Pétronille ouvrent leur brasserie boulevard Saint-Germain. Alsacien d'origine, Léonard Lipp a fui sa terre natale, devenue allemande, et se consacre à la préparation de cervelas rémoulade en entrée et de la choucroute en plat de résistance, arrosée des meilleures bières. Sa convivialité et des prix modestes lui font connaître un franc succès. La germanophobie lors de la Première Guerre mondiale l'oblige à prendre comme nouveau nom la Brasserie des Bords pendant quelques années.

En juillet 1920, le bougnat Marcellin Cazes reprend l'établissement, qui était déjà fréquenté par quelques poètes comme Verlaine ou Apollinaire. Il le fait décorer avec des céramiques murales de Léon Fargues, les plafonds peints de Charly Garrey, les banquettes en moleskine marron. C'est en 1935 que Marcelin crééra le Prix Cazes, qui est attribué chaque année à un auteur n'ayant jamais eu d'autre distinction littéraire. En 1955, Marcelin passe le flambeau à son fils Roger Cazes.

À partir de 1990, la famille Bertrand d'origine auvergnate, propriétaire du salon de thé Angélina, de la chaîne de restauration rapide Bert's et du pub Sir Winston, reprend progressivement Lipp.

[EN] On 27 October 1880, Léonard Lipp and his wife Pétronille opened the brasserie on the Boulevard Saint-Germain. Of Alsatian origin, Lipp left Alsace when it became part of Germany.

His speciality was a cervelat rémoulade starter, then sauerkraut, served with the best beers. The brasseri's atmosphere and its modest prices made it a great success. Anti-German sentiment after the First World War led to a change of name to Brasserie des Bords for several years.

In July 1920, the bougnat (Paris immigrant) Marcellin Cazes redesigned the brasserie, which had become frequented by poets such as Paul Verlaine and Guillaume Apollinaire. He decorated it with tiled murales by Léon Fargues, with painted ceilings by Charly Garrey, and purple moleskin seating.

In 1935, Cazes established the Prix Cazes, a literary prize awarded each year to an author who has won no other literary prize.

In 1955, he passed the baton to his son Roger Cazes.

Since 1990, it has been progressively developed by its owners Groupe Bertrand of Auvergne, owner of the Angelina tea house, of fast food chain Bert's and of the Sir Winston pub chain.
