Cozy tap room with a much larger selection of beer then what they are bottling or distributing. Definitely worth the visit.

The taproom is a nice place to have a pint or two with some friends, and also the best place to try some of NOLA's specialty beers. My only complaint is that the place is lacking a bit in atmosphere, but I'm sure that'll improve in time. Aside from Avenue Pub, this is probably the best place to grab a solid craft beer in New Orleans.

Fantastic tour! Every Friday from 2-3 a free tour with unlimited free beer takes place. The owner is often present and also gives tours. Big advocates of home brewing and very friendly people. They produce some awesome beer at some awesome prices and the best of it you can have right there. They also have a bar at the brewery that operates normal hours where you can try new beers they are experimenting with. Definitely worth a visit!

This brewery has a laid-back feel that is similar to a backyard barbecue. They allow you to sample add much beer as you care to in the hour-long open - house style tour they have, and after the time expires, they welcome you to sample more at your expense. Good selection of beer with creative temporary offerings (like the Girlscout Cookie), but I wish the tour were more understandable and comprehensive.

The NOLA taproom is a great place to spend an hour on a Saturday afternoon in New Orleans. I think the best way to try all their regular offerings or specialty beers is a flight of 4 for $8. The menu is constantly changing, so you can sample some pretty cool things. Of course you can get a 10 or 16 ounce size at very reasonable prices.
Our bartender was a pretty cool lady with blue hair who knew her lineup and hyped it well. Despite the ever growing crowd, she managed to give us some backstory on the beers.
The taproom is a nice size. I'm looking forward to seeing the new two story taproom in 2015.
I agree with others about the Friday tours. Get there early and expect huge, busy crowds. Free beer brings lots of folks.
I think the NOLA taproom is the best way to experience all the great beers this brewery has to offer.
