Been here before but this trip was much better. While perusing their selection Sonny approached me to ask if I have any questions. I said that Iíd like to try something new, then he proceeded to spend 15 minutes with me telling me all the ones that he regards as unique and/or exceptional. His knowledge was extensive and was supported by his travels to many locations where the beers are brewed - Bamburg for example. Their offering is significantly better than my last visit which was only one year ago. They were right up there with Steinís in obscure choices, but their quantity was greater in scope.

Wow, not bad for a grocery store. In fact not bad for NOLA (area). At this point I hadnít been to Steinís yet so the only respectable beer places thus far on the trip were Avenue, dba, and Jimani. Those are of course all bars but the point is that all the liquor stores in town (at least around the French quarter) are garbage. Here they have a decent sized aisle full of beer. Lots of classics available like Delirium, Chimay, Corsendonk, Weihenstephaner, Unibroue, Orval, and St Bernardus. They had some American staples as well like Rogue, Sierra Nevada, and Sam Adams but they also had some more local and regional stuff like Parish, Monkís, Abita, and St Arnold. To top it off they have several 5L mini kegs if thatís your thing. There is a small amount of refrigerated beer but most of it is on the shelf. Not entirely bad since I didnít see much in the way of hoppy beer rotting away but it would be nice to see more of it kept cold.

Beyond that itís a pretty common (albeit large) grocery store. Itís easy to spot from the main road (Veterans Memorial Blvd, which causes problems due to naming inconsistency) and they have plenty of parking. Pricing is average, maybe a little better than average.
