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.

Creole jambalaya originates from the French Quarter of New Orleans, in the original European sector....

Didn't eat there but didn't want that to effect the overall score. Great beer selection. Friendly staff. Had a great time.

In a sea of Michelob Ultra Tallboys and Fireball shots, this is an oasis! Had the great pleasure of meeting Miriam, the bartender, while visiting from Seattle. She is well versed in styles and more than happy to offer suggestions--home brewer, formerly from Anderson Valley Brewing, she is on top of it. Great dive bar feel (can't remember the last time I have seen a cigarette machine), but the craft beer selection is thoughtful and well curated--Founders Black Rye and Great Raft Grace and Grit DIPA were terrific. Though the kitchen was transitioning from lunch to dinner, they were able to pull together a nice hummus plate that paired well with my IPA's. Will surely be back!

I dragged the wife all the way from the French quarter to this place and the whole walk over she was killin me about "this place better be good" stuff..
I was nervous when I saw this place from outside.. Even more nervous when I walked in and saw NO tables.. Just a bar and hella people standing up everywhere with what they call "Go cups"

Wow what a FREAKEN selection of AWESOME beers.. I could tell hear guys and gals knew their beer . They were also a humble a can be.. Great group of bartenders..

Now that bad part.. I didn't try the food! That's it..
Check your attitude at the door. This ain't your craft snob hangout .. This is a place to enjoy good beer in Go cups! Ahaha
This is the only bar I've ever been to that let me walk out the door with 2 barrel aged beers for my walk back to the hotel

3 of the beers that I tried to order weren't on tap. I went with 2 other things I wasn't really excited about. I had never heard of 1 of the two and the style wasn't listed. No samples at this bar which is annoying. I ended up buying 2 terrible beers that weren't even enjoyable. Prices are very high. Pours seemed to be short. I can't see how this place is rated 100 on here. I'd have a hard time going back.

Top 5 beer selection of any bar that I have been to. We went during the day on a weekday so that it wouldn't be that crowded. The owner was there, she was very friendly and even made some beer suggestions. The waitresses were very good, the beer was even better. i loved that they offered small pours so that you could try more beer in one visit. Next time I'm in New Orleans, this will be the only place that I go to for beer.

Easily the best beer bar in the area. The bartenders were cool, the place was out of the craziness of Bourbon street, and the food was good pub fair. I'll go back every time I'm in town!
