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.

Best place in NOLA to find a variety of well crafted beer. Whiskey/Scotch selection is a bonus.

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.
