Place rating #1100.

Visited February 17, 2014.

Upon first glance it doesnít look like much but when you either 1) explore the property and see the multiple bars and the neat patio on the roof and in the back or 2) look closer at the tap list youíll see why this place is so highly rated. Also, Iím sure that the general crappiness of the NOLA beer scene makes this place look that much more awesome. They have several dozen taps and will sell 4oz glasses of pretty much everything. They also have a good amount of bottles. On tap I had a glass of the Hill Farmstead / Blaugies saison and it was very nice. Smaller glasses of half a dozen other beers were ordered as well for the sake of trying them. Then upstairs where they have a separate tap list a few more tasters were ordered. The employees were very nice and helpful in picking out beers to try. One of the best was a pale ale of sorts (3% abv I think) from Spain that was good and hoppy. There was a black IPA and a quad mixed in there for good measure. Overall great selection. Not sure Iíd fly out here just for Zwanze day but they have done that event several years now if youíre looking for your Cantillon ticks.

Didnít try any of the food and come to think of it Iím not sure they even serve food, but itís irrelevant as I was enjoying a glass of Blaugies and having a good time. That, and there is a BBQ place a few blocks up St Charles called Voodoo BBQ that I wanted to check out. Turns out that it was kind of lame, but at least now I know better.

Complaints include prices and that while the service was very friendly they were busy talking to regulars and not paying attention to anyone else, not that we werenít served eventually. If I go back to New Orleans some day this will be one of my first stops.

Reel tame spot to boost and chill. Outdoor patio offered (@accepted). Like 40 something solid taps plus large bottle list of lambic brews and the like with small markups. For example tilquin 750 @ 26. Good service. Friendly crowd. Peteable.

So this was an interesting place. Itís in an old traditional NO house with porches all around the upstairs. Looks well broken-in and comfy. Lots of taps downstairs, and a handful of food items. I had the lamb and beef meatball sandwich which was delicious. The beers are varied, with a number of local things, Belgian stuff and others. Downstairs was smoking, though, but ventilation was OK. My first visit was on a Friday night, and the only open barstool was at the second bar in the rear. It took me a while to figure out that you canít order beer or food from that bar, and staff gave me no hints. Upstairs had one firkin and some handpull casks, ranging from Thornbridge Halcyon to Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut. Solid place. Several decent hotels within a couple of blocks, which made the visits much easier.

Some old southern charm for sure. Rustic, a little worn down with some colored glass windows, large copper covered bar, and multilevel/uneven floor. We all love that though, right! Character. Had some rarities available, both on tap and in the bottle. Goodies from Against the Grain, Mikkeller, Evil Twin, etc. With me, itís all about the beer and this pub had some great ones. Food not served until 3pm and the other bar wasnít open until 5pm...had some beers pouring there that I would have loved to try. The bartender was attentive and helpful. Have to make a stop here if in NOLA!

Great bar in New Orleans. They are frakkin open 24/7/365!! This feels like a neighborhood joint! They have over 30 beers on tap!! Small but good food menu, try their Dump Truck Fries! But itís all about the beer and this place delivers in variety in taps, bottles and cans.

Excellent beer selection including options only available here. Bartenders are the most knowledgeable in the city. Atmosphere is nothing fancy in fact rather grungy, but when you walk in you know that itís a serious beer joint.

Not many places in the world can top this place. 49 taps in the bar downstairs alone. Many bottles are aging in the cellar. Staff that know and love beer. A non-pretentious atmosphere away from the nonsensical French Quarters. Simple and delicious bar food. A pool table. Many bottles with strong beers. Each beer selected for what it is, not to have a range or have all of a brewer. Fantastic. Points off for allowing in-door smoking. Also, prices high for imports.

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.

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.
