Start with the bad, it is a bit smokey, but a well worn bar with comfortable seats and lots of wood.
All the beers I had were in good shape which is tough with the selection they have.
Staff were knowledgable and friendly to pro and novice alike.
Overheard the staff talking to a couple girls that didn't know beer and they suggested Belgian wits, not Blue Moon.
Selection is the gem here. Extensive tap and bottle list which includes some world class beers. 2008 pannepot on tap, peche mortel, oh my.
One of the best beer bars in the world. A must visit bar when in the Big Easy.

Great selection of draft and bottles. I've been traveling around the US and have been looking for any type of de Struise beer for awhile (either bottle or tap)--they had Weltmerz on tap. Definitely a world class beer list.
I went on a Friday night around 9:30 PM. Place was busy, but not packed. Service upstairs was slow and impersonal. Downstairs service was better. Nice that they could keep my tab at both bars. I went for the beer list, not the service, but would have been nice if the bar staff demonstrated an interest in what they had available.
Atmosphere was what you would expect from an older NOLA bar (i.e., older building, creaky stairwell, mismatch furniture, low light, etc.). Crowd the night I went was mostly college-educated late 20's, early 30's. Was able to easily find a place to sit with my wife.
Did not try the food.
