Thanx to the staff for a wonderful visit. I had a wonderful time and tried many great beers.
For starters this gem is in the wonderful Lower Garden District neighborhood. Hop on the Green trolleys and they'll drop you off right near here, or better yet stay at one of several nice hotels nearby and trolley it back to the the Quarter. Hint, Stein's Market and deli is in this same neighborhood.
They are open 24/7 and have a wonderful selection of beer on tap and bottle. For the non beer drinkers they also stock a large selection of booze, wine and sake. The draw here is the beer. Mikkeller, Stillwater, Evil Twin, Saint Arnold and the list goes on.
If you are looking for something fancy, this ain't it. It is a very nondescript, low key place in a reasonably quiet neighborhood. They do have a handful of TV's for the sports fan, a pool table and jukebox. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. It is fairly small and can go from being empty to full in short order.
Did not try any of their food, but I can tell you it is hand cooked and everyone who was eating seemed to be happy with it.
For a beer geek I can't recommend this place highly enough. Cannot wait to go back.
Thought I would mention that, for smokers, you are out of luck. As of June 1st they are going non-smoking.

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.
