Absolutely beautiful beer garden, pretty much all outdoor seating save a small bar inside along a wall of barrels, the staff was very knowledgeable about every beer I asked about and the beers were stellar, some brewed with fruit from the garden, I recommend anyone visiting New Orleans to check em out.

We went a bit out of our way to get here because of how many saisons they had on tap, not knowing whether they'd be worthwhile but at least curious to find out if such a bold move paid off, and I'm glad that we did.

The building appears as though it was a car shop at one point, with a "courtyard" that's spaced out more like a scrapyard, and an interior that could clearly use more ironing out. That said, it's also quaintly romantic in that sense, with quite a mellow vibe. The tap list is written on a latticed window, and while they have a few "bar tops" that basically serve to cordon off the operations area, it's more appropriate you sit outside. Here you may find yourself underneath a grapevine, or at a picnic table, or even one of a few patio tables next to a shipping container, of which I'm not sure how long has been there, but is being used for storage.

Really, there's quite a lot of outdoor seating compared to the modest size of the interior, and its overgrown in a cute sort of secret garden way. You might even spot someone quietly getting marred right under your nose!

Most importantly, we took our time going through their entire tap list during our visit. I was thoroughly impressed by their saisons and mixed fermentation beers, which actually tasted appropriate to style instead of like hefes or wits. Additionally, someone showed up to cook, setting up a table with a flat top and deep fryer, but we had other plans--on our way to Frenchman!

This brewery is out near the Bywater. Early afternoon visit and the location was empty with exception of a few pedestrian droppings. Exterior grounds provide seating, and there is no interior seating that I saw. No interior seating that I saw and approximately 10 beers on tap.

Will not be returning. Pilsners were fine, pale ales were undrinkable, literally. Service was so-so. Far better options in NO.

Cool place, but staff was a bit short, and not overly willing to engage.

Only two bottle options to purchase and only about six draft options, so not an huge selection.

Location & vibe was good and I can see this being a great evening spot.

Cool place in the Bywater. Lots of rotating interesting taps. Awesome pretzels, but with all the awsome places nearby its not hurting for food. Seating isn't bad both inside and outside. Boardgames available, which hints at the vibe. Pretty laid back. Service is ok, with knowledgable staff.
