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.

Although this place looks like a dive, it is absolutely the best bar in New Orleans. The bartenders know their stuff. The selection is unmatched and if you are hungry, grab the dump truck fries. The pub also hosts frequent brewery events and special keg tappings.

"Divey" is the wrong word. So many places try too hard for divey but this place is homey in a more genuine way than so much of the more touristy section on nola. Beer selection is not the best I've ever seen anywhere but pretty respectable, including sours on draft (mucho bonus points for me) and again, the other places nearby are pretty limited. Food is a mixed bag; less pretentiously French/creole but high quality for what there is. Will definitely be back.
