my summary of Avenue Pub is that, for my short week in New Orleans, I felt that this bar is legitimately one of the best beer bars in the United States. a few things that are very important that they seem to excel at: 1) create a unique, comfortable, welcoming and social environment: upstairs and downstairs bars, balcony outside up top and a painted stairwell that will remind you of a college house. 2) expansive tap list with balance of local, regional, national and international options. 3) expansive bottle list with the same, including some bottles considered quite rare in the states. 4) they arrange events featuring exclusive taps of high quality and varying styles, pretty much ensuring that thereís no person that could visit and NOT find a number of good things to try, new to that person.

December 2010. Without a doubt the premier beer destination in NO. Just a short drive or a trolley ride from the heart of the touristy areas, the Avenue Pub was a warm and welcoming respite on a cold day. Owner Holly can talk beer with the best of them. The food was fresh and delicious, although it did seem to take a long time to come out on an empty afternoon. Would definitely return -- some hard-to-find gems in a glass can certainly be discovered here! (Also, visit NOLA Brewing just a few blocks away!)

Lived up to the hype. Would be a great bar even if it wasnít beer geek heaven for NOLA. The caliber of beer on tap is impressive, several rare bits, regional beer, etc.

The pub is away from the French Quarter in an old two story house. The upstairs has funky ambiance and a patio, the downstairs has delicious food and a long bar with a pool table and some seating. Probably the best beer list in New Orleans. They focus on having a rotating selection of quality beers. There were a few breweries represented that I havenít seen on the east or west coast. Prices are okay. I ate a grilled goat cheese and bacon sandwich with jalapeno coleslaw. Delicious.

First impression was quite awful. I wanted to turn around and run. Small bar full of people, smoke everywhere, people pushing, beer list very hard to read (most of the beers crossed over)... I was encouraged to stay and have a drink. I had too. The service was friendly but slow. The selection was quite limited (what comes to local beers) but still I was able to find something to drink. No need to come back. I was disappointed.

Stopped by the Avenue Pub on a Friday afternoon the day before their big American Craft Beer Week event. I was with a bachelor party with 12 guys killing an afternoon on the St. Charles streetcar line, and managed to persuade them all to come here. We grabbed food here, which is an unusual setup because the kitchen is technically a separate business than the pub itself. They werenít quite ready for the crunch of a dozen guys walking in to eat and drink at once; I got the impression this place is used to a steady flow of business throughout the day, and based on the 24-7 hours that seems about right. Great tap selection and a bunch of cool bottles, too. They cover all the local and regional brewers, digging deeper than the flagship beers from each of them. Surprising amount of beers from around the country, too, and a few cool foreign brews. Great atmosphere- corner pub along a beautiful street with a balcony, the building is that style unique to the city. Awesome place- the best beer bar in New Orleans, and it absolutely commands a visit to any beer drinker visiting for any amount of time. UPDATE: The tap list here is better every time I come in. I love the atmosphere but -1 for the smoke (even though I know itís legal in NO). Canít wait to return.

This is the bar to go to in New Orleans for the best selection of craft beer in the area. It is open 24 hours a day, which is pretty crazy. There is a downstairs area and a special upstairs section which offers a few different, special beers (but only opens at 5pm I think). Anyway, this place has local options as well as plenty of international offerings, including Cantillon and Drie Fontinen, and other rarities. It was a great stop, and a must-stop for those visiting NOLA. It is away from the French Quarter, but certainly walkable (~30 mins).

THE stop for beer in NOLA. Old tavern ambiance. Great draft & bottle selection. Nice belgian selection in both bottle & draft. 3 de rankes on tap. Bartender was great & personable. Got to drink a beerwith the NOLA brewing crew to boot. Must stop in New Orleans. Just a $1.35 trolly ride from the French Quarter

Like all the classic beer bars Iíve been in, this is a humble, TV-less, poorly lit joint that is comfortable and lacking any pretentions. Notable for a rather outstanding offering of Belgians on tap and in bottles, it also has many local micros. Bar staff was friendly and attentive, but the beer knowledge wasnít really there, such that I politely asked if they minded if I looked at their bottle collection myself. Overall this place is deserving of their highly ranked status, but be warned: you come here for the beer, as there isnít much else to satisfy non-beery folks.

IF you visit New Orleans donít go to the French Quarter looking for a beer bar. Turn around 180 degrees and make your way here. It may look a bit like a dive bar but the tap list, food, and atmosphere make this one of the best places Iíve ever been.
For the sampler you can pay by the ounce which means even if you get flights your final tab will be less than two drinks on Bourbon Street. If you want full pours the servers will give you generous 16 ounce pours in most cases. Either way the bang for the buck is second to none and thatís not even during Happy Hour when beers are $2.00 off.
Finally the food - I did not have high expectations but my meal may have been one of the best affordable options in town. Between the burgers, appetizers, and other options there is something for everyone. This is not a place to miss if you are in New Orleans.
