Quick stop at Rouses on the way to the hotel. Free street parking out front, but I can see how that would fill up fast at busy times. Very Whole-Foods like vibe going, almost like the just copied the entire setup lock stock and barrel. One aisle of beer, some of it in fridges, but most not. A "craft beer" display at the end of the aisle. Decent selection of locals and some sporadic decent other stuff, but nothing at all to write home about. Meh. I walked out with nothing.

Very nice place with a pretty generous selection of craft brews. Especially, local and southern regional ones.

Visited 09/2012. Stumbled in here on a rainy long walk and was amazed at the selection for a NOLA-local supermarket with a Whole Foods vibe. Refrigerated 6packs from Abita to Stone IPA and a very broad selection of domestic and EU macro Pils and Weisse, with some Rogue, Mikkeller, Chimay, Gulden Draak in single bigger bottles. Demarcated "Craft corner" with blackboards. - The real appeal here to us was the chilled local Abita beers and whole range of delicious nuts & snacks to go with that for on the road.../ Note: ours had a parking lot and was a bit out of the center so this rating should probably be moved to the other Rouses.

Visited February 20, 2014.
Stopped in on the way out of town. There is no easy way to park here, especially on a week day, which is frustrating. Inside is pretty large and this seems to be a mid range grocery store. In the back there is a long aisle for beer. On the one side is mostly six packs where youíll find Sierra Nevada, Stone, Shiner, New Belgium, North Coast, etc. At the end of the aisle is a shelf that says "craft beer" on it and has a lot of singles. Some good stuff can be found there, though there is a lack of local beers. I saw Duvel, Chimay, Saison Dupont, Corsendonk, St Sebastians, Spaten, and Crispin. They also have some Brooklyn, Abita, and Southern Tier. Not bad for a grocery store but not very impressive over all, though being from the west coast I do get a bit jealous seeing Pumking readily available on the shelf, even if it is several months out of season.
Also noteworthy is the fact that no beer is refrigerated.

For a grocery store, you really canít complain. This place had a much better-than-average bottle selection. As I was visiting from out of state, I was quite interested in the local selection. They had a nice blend of locals with the wider macro stuff; even a cooler full of singles to make your own six pack. I thought the prices were excellent as well. The staff was friendly and quick to point out their favorites.

A big supermarket with very good selection of beers (and wines) and fresh food. What made it unfortunate for me no singles. Only 6-packs. Lots of European beers too.

Very much feels like a whole foods or any other upscale grocery store type place. No apparent service, but it was a quick stop. Pretty decent beer selection though, a nice local selection and some good craft brands. Prices were fair to below average comapared to what I am used to. Nice place in downtown to stop for beer and food.

This is definitely one of the best grocery stores Iíve ever been in and the best beer selection I saw during my stay in New Orleans. Rouseís has gone above and beyond expectations for a quality supermarket, itís worth checking out for the food alone. The beer selection emphasizes regional craft brews and has plenty of other crafts and quality imports. Most all six packs are refrigerated. On another big shelf is a very good selection of bombers and 750ís. They had offerings from NOLA, Bayou Tech, Stone, St. Arnold, Moylanís, etc. etc. Prices are very good. If I ever go back this is probably where Iíll be doing my beer shopping.
