After 3 days viewing the must see sights in NOLA, i was in search for a little splash of the local brew pub culture. Atmosphere is fairly nice, old, worn interior with plenty of space for drinkers and diners. Dark stained wood is the predominant feature of much of the place, including the bar. Nice open front building letting in a wonderful breeze off the Mississippi the day we were there. I little Jazz trio warming up in the front corner. Brewing equipment exposed behind the bar on multiple levels. A little raw bar at the front corner of the bar where you can watch them schuck oysters all night.

6 beers available at the time. Nothing stand out, but nothing executed horribly. Light bodied, lightly hopped beers seem popular down here, i guess its refreshing in the horrible humidity and heat in the summer.

Service was friendly, slightly inattentive even during a slow late afternoon/early evening. Prices were decent.

Not much else going on down this way in terms of brew pubs, except the corporate feeling Gordon Biersch, would gladly come back for a few drinks and some grub.

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!

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

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.

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.
