This is a great little place in New Orleans. Beer isn't that big of a deal in the south and in a city that I really didn't see many places with a great beer selections this is a welcome treat. This place is a bit out of the way of the normal touristy Bourbon street places which was pretty cool. We ended up having a couple beers and some food. The beer was served in appropriate glassware. Food was great and the prices were very good as well. Makes me glad that I live in the Pacific NW, this place in Seattle or Portland wouldn't be in the top 10 beer bars probably but in the south where good beer is a bit harder to come by its a nice find.

One if the best bars I've ever been in. Beer selection is incredible. Bartenders were very knowledgeable and serve beers at proper temperature. Best bar in New Orleans area for beer for sure.

The place has a great selection of beers on tap and a large bottle selection. The beer menu is well organized and it even lists whether a bottle is kept chilled or if it is at cellar temperature. Beer is served in proper glassware by knowledgeable and friendly staff. I was impressed to see beers from Drie Fonteinen and others on the list. The food selection is pretty small but what you can get is tasty. It's the type of place you could just sit and hang out for hours at a time enjoying good beer and lose track of the time. It's also the type of place you could keep coming back to and always try something new.

A regular bar with awesome selection. Flights are available and staff is very knowledgeable. Only (slight) negative is some taps are exclusive to upstairs bar, although only made me want to come back when the upstairs was open. Great beer bar, the best I've been to.

Place is right off St Clarles streetcar line and opened 24/7. Place is a bit of a dive but food and beer are excellent. Bartender very knowledgeable about beers but a couple of beers had kicked that were on the online list and paper list in the bar. Still a must for a trip to New Orleans.

This is THE place to go to fir craft beer in New Orleans. Outstanding selection and many beers you will not find on tap anywhere else in the city. Decent bottle list also. Nice balcony view of St Charles when upstairs is open. Food is not bad either. A must go if in New Orleans.

Clearly one of the best beer selections in the South, possibly the US

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

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!
