Was in NOLA for business and flew in early on a monday to enjoy some of the sights.
Went on BA and found this place and decided to try it out for a bite and a brew. I was staying Downtown on Poydras Ave and decided to walk down to St. Charles and take it all the way down the the pub. It was well worth it. I enjoyed the walk and enjoyed my destination even more. The place is unassuming on the outside. Its classic NOLA architecture with some nice rod iron balconies and some nice wood doors. It actually looked close if it wasn't for the fact that I knew it was open.
When I walked in contractors had just finished working on the upstairs for the day so decided to walk straight up to the bar. Great character and atmosphere. About 20 taps right in front with tons of micros and a nice old wood bar with a copper top. The place was slightly smokey from the one other patron there. I struck up a nice convo with the bartender and the other patron and she suggested some local brews. I enjoyed both of the.
The service was top-nothc and friendly and the selection is impressive. Food was also great. I had the Roast Beast which was a NOLA take on an Italian Beef sandwich. Very good.

Although this place looks like a dive, it is absolutely the best bar in New Orleans. The bartenders know their stuff. The selection is unmatched and if you are hungry, grab the dump truck fries. The pub also hosts frequent brewery events and special keg tappings.

"Divey" is the wrong word. So many places try too hard for divey but this place is homey in a more genuine way than so much of the more touristy section on nola. Beer selection is not the best I've ever seen anywhere but pretty respectable, including sours on draft (mucho bonus points for me) and again, the other places nearby are pretty limited. Food is a mixed bag; less pretentiously French/creole but high quality for what there is. Will definitely be back.
