The brewpub is quite inviting and seems a lot cleaner than many places near by. I heard about this place from some colleagues and was really looking forward trying some highly praised german-style brews. The first day I had only time for a quick beer and after they refused serving a sampler on the balcony, I ordered a Weissbeer.
The Weissbeer was served in an appropriate glass, had a perfect head and although the banana was slightly too strong, left me very excited and wishing for more. A colleague picked up the tap and I was planning to spend the next evening at the Crescent City Brewhouse for more and a more detailed beer tasting. The next day the pub was closed for a private party and I had to wait for another day.

The menu had no vegetarian options but a green salad for $9 or a baked brie also for $9. I ordered a sampler and got 4 beers. They had run out of the special brew. I would rate the beer quality from very good beginning with the Weiss beer over Black Forest, Red Stallion to below average on the Pilsner. I ended up drinking 4 half liters plus the sampler and was very surprised that I had run the tap up to $46.50. I double checked the receipt and each of the beers had been $7.50.

Nice location to get a break from Bourbon Street Oompah and supposedly authentic food serving tourist traps, but not a place for vegetarians and certainly not for beerlovers on a budget. (1,400 characters)

Bartenders were the rudest I have ever encountered. New Orleans is more of a PRB and a shot city. Embrace that philosophy and enjoy yourself! (141 characters)

Centrally located in french qt. large bar and dining hall. On a
hot NOLA day, their Hefeweizen will do you right. They also offer a togo window with a couple select drafts (172 characters)

Pretty chill place. They only have 5 of their own beers. 1 outta 2 of those that I tried were good. Very mediocre food. Nothin too crazy. Plus everything was WAAAAAAAAYYYY overpriced!!! For me and my girl to get the cheapest thing on the menu each, and three drinks each, it was 80 friggin bucks!! Plus they messed up on my food and her drink. Won't be goin back. (363 characters)

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. (299 characters)
