Found this through beerfly and one of my old BA magazines with a guide to NOLA. The hardcopy was an essential read on the plane. Also checked their web presence and it seemed that they had a top notch selection of beers to offer in the Big Seedy!

This place lived up to it's reputation as one of the finest beer beers on New Orleans. It's right on St. Charles so it's a fairly quick trolley ride from the French Quarter. We stopped into this place several times while we were in town. With over forty taps and fifty bottles available it was well worth it.

It's located on the corner with wide open windows as well as a second floor deck area for drinking and people watching. Great atmosphere and vibe to this place.

Aside from a great representation of the breweries of Louisiana, they had a great selection of American craft beer along with some European favorites.

Beer prices were reasonable for pints. They averaged around 5.00 a pint. In NOLA that may seem like allot given the absurd drink deals that may be found elsewhere, but we are talking quality beer here, not BMC swill or foo-foo she-she liquor drinks.

Our bartender was well versed and knowledgeable in regards to beer. She was very helpful with making recommendations on local beers. She was more than happy to provide samples of just about anything we wanted.

The food here is traditional pub fare, with some eclectic regional offerings. I tried the swamp Reuben while here, and must say it was quite delicious. Pulled pork and beef brisket with slaw and BBQ sauce on grilled sourdough bread. A heavenly meat sandwich.

This place gets two thumbs up as a great experience in New Orleans, A must visit in my opinion. Well worth the trolley ride.

Since you are in the neighborhood already, consider walking over to Stein's deli for takeout beer, or an equally exceptional sandwich.

Every town could use a place like the Avenue pub. Great beer and great sandwiches.

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.
