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.

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.
