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.
