Ah, Mardi Gras! Was in the FrenchQtr walking to Faulkner's books store and thought, what the hell...

Very cool layout, with heavy wood all over, massive brew tanks and other equipment within patron's view, and easy on the brewerania, so pretty easy on the eyes and not touristy at all. Upstairs balcony was pretty cool, and a jazz band in the corner. Not shabby, On to the beer...

Try the sampler, as nothing here will razzledazzle, but it drinks I suppose. German influenced (sorry HopHeads!) with a Pils, Red/Marzen, Weiss, Brown, and Bock and maybe another I'm missing, but point being the beer is simply so/so. Not atrocious or anything, but if you're a German-style nut this won't cut it for you and you won't have the same beer twice. So again, snag a sampler with a meal.

Food was great though, with the Brie and French bread app coming with grapes on the vine; all before a very tasty brisket as an entree. Service was prompt, courteous, and attentive without being obtrusive.

This is a beer blog website though, so frankly don't go out of your way to hit this spot, but if shopping in the area and would like a nice bite and some suds drop on in and support a local brewery.

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.
