First stop while in NOLA was of course NOLA Brewing Co. We stopped in and had a couple flights of stuff. The beers were decent but nothing too exciting unfortunately. The vibe was nice, it's a smaller place then I expected. The food looked incredible and I actually regret not getting something there... live ya learn. If I found myself back in NOLA I might consider going back just for the food first and the beers second.

Was in New Orleans on business and wanted to stop here before I had to fly out the following morning. I planned on going for a flight or two, then leaving. I pretty much ended up spending a good three hours or more enjoying alot of good beer and enjoying great conversation with locals and fellow business travelers.

The tap room is quite small but what I loved was how intimate it is, great BBQ with local food styles available in-house, and the lack of too many TV's around the room. It was refreshing for a change. Most importantly, the beer is quality here. I did two flights, reviews are available to read.

Far off the beaten path but worth the trek.

There are 22 taps available when I visited on November 1, 2017. They ranged from blonde to stout with many unusual beers in between like Berliner Weisse and sours. IPAs dominated the list. I like their flight policy -- choose any four on the list.

For food, there's a BBQ place attached which seems to be very popular with everyone here.

The place is large but very mellow. For a Wednesday afternoon, it is quite busy. Overall, I'm impressed with the general quality of the beer and its popularity with the locals.

Right along the river, just south of the French Quarter. Lots of beers on tap, all their own. Had a couple of then, and they were both very good. They have a local BBQ outfit running the food concession. A pretty decent selection, and the sausage I had was excellent. I’d definitely go back!

Really great brewery with a very wide selection of in-house beers. Styles vary as well from IPAs to sours to stouts. So a visit here allows taste a great range of beers.

Stopped in for lunch on a weekday and pleasantly surprised that teamed up with a local BBQ joint. It was quite because it was a weekday but the bartender was super friendly and knowledgeable. They had about 20 beers on tap as well as crowlers, cans and bottles to go. Awesome beer selection with a great mix of styles of blends. They had just tapped a few sours which were unique and well done. The BBQ joint inside made some kickass tacos and I recommend trying everything they had. A definite stop when you are in the area. The best beers in New Orleans and a great place to chill.

A nice big, chill space out in a very industrial type part of New Orleans. Relaxed vibe on a sunday night - not too full but lively enough that it didn't feel too quiet. Lots of their beers on tap - seemed like a lot of variety with some sours on offer. Not every beer I tried hit the mark but I liked the efforts. BBQ was solid.

Located a few miles away from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter this place is a nice change of pace from Bourbon Street.
There is a downstairs bar with their full draught list, and an upstairs bar with a few less beers but a nice seating area and outside patio. Downstairs shares space with a nice BBQ joint, and has some restaurant-style seating, but space can get a little tight near the bar because its the first thing you see when you walk in. Upstairs was completely open when we arrived, and we had the bar all to ourselves. Though not as many taps as downstairs, they had their small batch beers available, as well as quite a few can and bottle options. Bartender was super nice, and seemed to enjoy being there (which is always nice). There are 2 tv's up there, board games, and a photo booth.
Beer ranged from sub-par to quite good (a range you see from many breweries), however it was the best I had while there (in a land ruled by Abita and macro).
We got Uber to and from, so didn't have to worry about parking, but it was real easy to get to - though I wouldn't walk there from the French Quarter. All in all, it was a real nice experience and you should definitely check it out if you're in the area.

Solid place, overall except location (did not have car so not totally their fault). We enjoyed the multitude of beers on tap and had excellent service. Quite the variety in beer quality from poor to excellent. Would go back if back in NOLA.

One of my favorite taprooms. The BBQ place that shares the space is pretty great!

Nice place outside of the Quarter. A slew of taps with a good selection of styles. Seating inside, outside and and upstairs deck. Unfortunately it was a little too crowded to navigate the food (bar-b-que place they share the space with) and the beer without a waitstaff but it gives a good reason to go back.
