Was here in August 2013. I thought the beer was very average, we had poor service, and the food was average at best. We attempted to do the tour at NOLA but it was cancelled upon arrival. This was the closest place to it, so we went here instead. It is in a great spot, but was disappointed overall.

Pretty nice looking place, old brewhouse behind the bar, both times we visited they were brewing so that was pretty neat. Five beers on tap, all German styles; pils, weiss, Vienna, schwartz and maibock. Tried all of them, very good quality. Pilsner was my favourite, light but with a nice hop character. Didn't really eat, just had some oyster. We litteraly stayed right next door, so this was a no brainer for us to visit. If you happen upon this place check it out.

Stumbled upon this beer joint on our first night in New Orleans, walking towards dba. Decided to stop in after hearing some cool jazz from the street.

Only five beers on tap: Pilsner, Weiss, Black Forest, Red Stallion, Special Brew (Dunkelweiss).

I tried the dunkelweiss and the Stallion and went for a Jack&Coke. The wife chose the stallion and got a big huge pint. Not a bad beer, but far from great. Metallic taste. I wouldn't want to drink it!

The place offers two floors and is spacious; we sat at the second floor bar and enjoyed a chill time listening to the jazz band downstairs.

Service was good but I'm not sure our bartender cared much for beer... or people, for that matter. Anyways, we had a good time and I would consider returning even though I found the beer to be below average.

This was our first stop in NOLA. Nice setup with multiple floors, old school decor, a patio and a takeout window.

They had six beers when I was there, including a seasonal Oktoberfest. A menu showcase gave some small notes and the waitress seemed to know a little. Sitting outside on a busy section of the French Quarter was fun as well.

The beer was ok, for the bad the lager was offensively light (going after your BMC apparently) and the Black Forest jumbled. That said the Weiss was unfiltered with nice sweetness and the Oktoberfest was true to flavor. The Amber was forgettable. Honestly, the Weiss is the only beer I would recommend.

Food was ok, I had a Pork Po'Boy. The flavors were really good but it wasn't quite cooked enough. Great fries though. My wife had a gumbo that seemed really good and true to the local flavors.

No complaints on service, our waitress was really nice. I though the prices were reasonable, you are in a touristy area. Come for happy hour.

Overall, I think if you have time this is worth a stop. It's a nice location and everything is passable, I love to support any local brewpub if I can. That said, it is by no means a must-do and you can find great beer (Abita, NOLA, etc.) in just about any bar as this city is good about promoting locals. Your call.

I would have to agree with previous reviews that at best this place in just kinda average. The building and setup is what you would expect for NOLA, complete with an outside take out window. I ordered a sample flight and they only information the server was able to offer was which of the five was their best seller. Not over helpful but I figured out as the flight I received was at best average in flavor and appearance for a BrewPub.

Food was great, large portions and defiantly highlighted some of the local flavors. The most surprising part came with the bill. Two people, a flight and two beers, and dinner was well over one hundred dollars. A little steep even for the area its located in. However if I was back and NOLA I would probably stop back just to try their seasonal.
