This kind of small store is mostly wine and liquor. There is on aisle of beer. A good amount of local craft, import selection wasn't bad. Everything is clearly marked and priced. Unfortunately, only a handful of beers were available as singles, even a sign saying not to break up the 6 packs. Staff seemed friendly enough and prices were average. Overall a decent spot if in the neighborhood, but not worth any long commute to get to.

Selection varies with each visit it seems. Keg selection is better than any in LA. I've been able to find some very limited releases though they are often "out of date." Found a couple Stone Anniversary Ales each time and not sure how they show up....nobody there knew the answer.
Service is so so, as wine and liquor are their primary market and it's a bit out of the way. The next door Mexican taco place must be a cops favorite :) as there were many police cruisers there and no action. Prices are better than most places as well. Picked up a Sierra Celebration for $8!!!

I've visited Elio's a few times. Their beer section isn't as large as the wine or liquor, but they carry a good bit of decent brewers. However, their keg list is outstanding for the area.

They have very good deals occasionally. I've managed to find Petrus and its glass in a gift box for $5 from here. This was earlier this year. I visited only a month later to find their stock was completely sold on Petrus. This was also the first store I was able to buy the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Stout.

I feel it is worth a visit if you're in the area.

Elio's is mostly a wine and liquor store, but they have a beer section in their store.
they employees are friendly, though i didn't ask for help so i don't know how knowledgeable they are about their stock.
The selection isn't that great. they now have stone products, along with rogue, Sierra nevada, chimay to name a few. nothing crazy though. They do have a large keg selection though. the prices are reasonable, and they have sales on cases of domestics which is good if you need them i guess.

As others have mentioned, Elio's is certainly the place to go for kegs. They have a lot and move a lot. However, they are not necessarily the first to get some kegs. Recently, they were unable to get Abita Wheat for me. It had just been released. They insisted that it was not available to them. I found it at a local grocery store. Make some sense out of that.

There's a young homebrewer named Chris working there. He's excellent in the service department and I ask for him when I call. For some reason, the person answering the phone (I'll not name names) doesn't always like to pass the phone off to him.

Their bottled beer selection is good enough to bring you there if you live near by. However, if I'm going more than 5 miles to get beer (Dorignac's), I'm going to keep driving until I get to Stein's.

This is THE place in New Orleans to buy a keg. If you give them a few days notice they will get you pretty much anything you want that is available in the city and are happyu to do it. They also trade out co2 tanks, 5 and 20 lb tanks for sure, and I know they have larger ones in the back. I have not been able to find a better place for keg selection and prices anywhere in the city. They even have the tall 1/6 bbl kegs of Abita Select and others if you want to save some space but still drink some good beer. The bottle selection is above average for the area, half of it is warm and that’s usually the better beers. They have a much larger wine and liquor selection than they do beer and seem more knowledgeable in that area. If you’re having a party this is where you want to stop, any keg you want at a good price and enough hard stuff to make sure everyone has a good time.

Elio’s is a must know about in New Orleans. It has about one wall full of beer – imports and micros. It carries all of the local Abita brews. A lot of the beer there is what you’d think standard in a good beer store – some from Belgium, a few European and a handful of micros. The prices were about average (perhaps slightly high). What set this place apart was the service. The gentleman helping me (who was either the owner or manager), definitely was there to please. We had a conversation and he said that he was expanding the beer selection and seemed intent on any suggestions I might have. There are a few other stores in New Orleans worthy of shopping at – but this one is good to know if you are in the area.

We buy most of our kegs for our kegerator there and usually they have a varying selection of about 4-8 beers available by the barrel. Mostly they will have 2-3 abita's, Sierra Nevada Pale, the usual Bud/Coors/Miller, and usually some random imports like Bass. As far as bottles/cans go they have some of the best uptown specials on your standard domestic cases as well as all the Abita beers, but if your looking at European imports then this is the place to hit up. They have Samuel Smith's, Mcewans, Boddingtons, Hopfbrahaus, Schneider-Weisse, Paulaner, Chimay, Maudite, and a bunch of others. In addition they have a great wine selection and hard liquour selection. Elio is also very accomodating with special
deals and working with you to get what you want.
