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.

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.

Avenue Pub was not on the beer map last time I was in New Orleans, a few months before Katrina. At that time, the City was a veritable beer wasteland outside of d.b.a. What a wonderful addition to the City and more specifically to the beer scenes of both New Orleans and of the South in general. A $1.25 street car ride from the edge of the French Quarter (Canal & St. Charles), AP has several different areas depending upon your mood: a more standard downstairs bar, an outdoor patio, an upstairs bar, and an outdoor upstairs balcony. What sets AP above other beer bars is the breadth and uniqueness of its selection and the fact that the tap selection is continually turning over almost completely. On this visit upstairs was a selection of 5 different Brooklyn Brewing beers, an aged Old Rasputin, and a newly tapped cask (tapped special because my group promised theyíd put a dent in it!) of Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. Polly, the owner, clearly has a high standard for whatís sheís willing to put on tap at Avenue Pub and it shows in the quality of the selection. I didnít have a chance to have any food, but all my buddies did. They and others I spoke to said the food is very good. As others have said, a truly canít miss place when anywhere near New Orleans!

The moment you walk into the Avenue Pub, you feel like you are home and the bartenders treat you like a regular from the very first visit. The tap wall is really outstanding, they have regionals (with all the NOLAís), unique interesting american micros, and impressive imports. And the taps rotate so often, you always find something to get you excited. The bottle list is also fantastic- from Cantillon, 3 Fontenien, Special release locals, Fantome, Loverbeer, and more . The food can really be quite surprising, gourmet seems to be the best way to describe it, and never boring. The feel of the Avenue is amazing, sitting with a guy on the right drinking a Pabst and a guy on you left with a Cantillon- everybody is still equal and you are all having a great time. the owner Polly is a class act and cares about every aspect of giving the customer the best craft beer experience! I wish this was my local bar, and it is easily in the top 5 bars in the US! .. and they were one of only 21 bars in the world to get 2011 Zwanze, that just shows you how amazing this place is!

Dark, kinda run down place that is a converted house of sorts (donít worry, keep reading), but in the end, it doesnít matter. Itís easy to get to off of the main drag and the beers are worth it. The staff is friendly and knowledgable, and Polly is great and obviously does her damndest to get good beers. The food was delish as well. Basically, you have to fo here if youíre in New Orleans.

Cool spot. Hopped off the trolley and I was there. I love public transportation. And cities that allow open containers. These go hand in hand. Anyway, I wouldnít need too many "go" cups if this were my neighborhood pub. Great selection (at least when I was there which was a stillwater and 12% imports tap event) and they had many things I wanted to try and didnít which is very rare for beer bars I frequent these days. They did allow smoking indoors but I hardly noticed it and was upstairs near the open air patio most of the time. Hot and friendly bartenders is also a plus. Could have spent a day or two here, easily. Hope to return.
