First off, write-off many of the negative reviews you see on this site. They are for two reasons:
1. The customer came during lunch-time, when the shop is packed because the sandwiches are KILLER. Yeah, the beer service isn't great at this time, but, God forbid, you hang out for a bit and have a reuben? Yeah then you can talk to Dan (the owner) about his awesome selection.
2. Preferential Treatment: Yeah, it happens here, but doesn't this occur anywhere? If an owner gets 1 case of a highly sought-after beer, is he or she not right to share with his or her best customers? I say yes, but that's a personal opinion. People from out of state may night get the extreme "rare" beers here, but they will still do well.
The food is spectacular, grab a sandwich if you're at all hungry.
And the beer, yeah, it's the best you can get in the state of Louisiana. I lived here for one year, and Dan, thank you for everything.
This is a superb shop, visit if you can, get a great sandwich and leave with better beer.

Went here after seeing this place mentioned on here. Walked in, pretty dumpy place but did have quite a few beers. I picked up several Praire Ales, Evil Twin, and then found 2 bottles of Hommage. Went to the counter to check out, guy, (owner) asks where I'm from. I tell him Florida and he says he can't sell me the Hommage, only "regular" customers can buy. I ask why it's on the shelf, he says it shouldn't be and he won't sell it to me. Again, because I am from out of town. He continues to ring up my other $130 worth of beer and I tell him I won't buy it if he is dictating what I can buy. He gets loud with me, says "this is why I hate out of town people."
Suck a D man!! Pizz on this place!
