I have been to the NOLA Brewery and taproom a handfull of times for their tour, getting a growler filled, or just having a beer. Their tap selection is pretty good with all of their year rounds on tap, along with 5-6 "experimental" taps. The experimental beers range from the Irish Channel Stout aged in 1792 barrels, Girl Stout Cookie, 7th Street Wheat with rasberries, and Hopitoulas with pineabble and peppers. Price is very reasonable with most 10oz pours costing $3-4 and 16oz costing $5-6. The atmosphere is nice, and I think they are trying to make it into more of a sports bar with the three large TV's all having some sort of sport on. They usually have only one bartender so if there is a surge of people, the service will suffer; however, the bartenders are all really nice and friendly.
All in all a great taproom with a good selection of NOLA beer, good/friendly service, and quality brew.
Tip: Have been there for a tour, in which they give away free beer during the tour, and I would suggest either avoiding during this time or go in knowing it is going to be crazy busy. The tour was informative, but it was so crowded and loud it was very difficult to hear the tour guide.

When we got there the place was swarming with people and the atmosphere was very crowded. We got there about 15 minutes before the tour and by the time the tour started the place was packed. The tour itself was very fun and informative. You can tell that the brewers really enjoy what they are doing and have a passion for what they do.
Then we went to the taproom which was overcrowded and very crazy. People were just cutting in line for the bar and it was just mass confusion. Then when we finally got up to get our drinks, the servers seemed like they couldn't care less about what they were doing or what we were getting.
All in all, the beer was great and the tour was fun, but the taproom was a bad experience.
