A great place to grab some beers, especially for the out of towners that are looking for something different, rare, sour, or whatever. The beers are all scattered about hap hazard like. Really no organization that I can tell. Up front are several tables for people to sit and eat. All the beer is stuffed in the back section.
If you like sour and funky, come here. Cantillon (you have to ask), 3 Fonteinen, Hanssens. Also stuff like Evil Twin, Stillwater, and Jolly Pumpkin. Some of the beer seems to sit around a long time, and the temperature of the place is not exactly cellar temp. So I would check freshness dates and unless it has been in the cooler avoid some of the aged selections.
The food is awesome. Lots of deli style sandwiches that are amazing. You can not drink alcohol on premiss though. The service is rushed, but they are always busy. I called a head to see if I could get a bottle of Cantillon, and they had it waiting for me. So they do care, just always a crowd here. I always stop here if I can after visiting Avenue Pub not far away in the Garden District.

I bought a sandwich, over $70 bucks in beer, and then found out they had Cantillon in the back. I asked for a bottle, the owner said I wasnt worthy and they were only for the regulars. He even tried testing me on what other sour beers I've had. Bottom line is great sandwich, great bottle selection, but the owner is full of himself and ruined my experience. Lame.

Best place from Texas to Pensacola.
I used to live in Pascagoula, MS, which is the arm pit of the USA. Because MS have the worst beer laws in the US I would either have to go to FL, AL, or LA to get good beer. I found this amazing place, I think, on Beer Advocate.
I called the owner, Dan Stein, to get a keg of Stone. He called me back within minutes to let me know when he could have what I wanted. My friend and I went there the next day and were amazed at how awesome the deli was. I am a vegetarian but I would get the beef tongue sandwich (special) because it was so awesome.
Dan would call a few times to let me know what he had in stock and would give me good recommendations like Moylans Hopsickle or Squatters Hop Rising.
You're not going to find a better place than this on the Gulf Coast, at least I didn't.
