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

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!

A must experience for beer drinkers travelling in New Orleans. Visiting from Toronto, Canada we happened upon this gem after combing Ratebeer and BeerAdvocate. Even after a recent trip to SF this was a breath of fresh air in a city with few quality brewpubs. Good selection of Stone and Old Rasputin on Nitro. The owner, Polly, was wonderful, sitting with us for 30 minutes and arranging for food to be brought to us. The modus operandi is for patrons to pick up their food downstairs. NB -- For those in the south/west who have not tried a good number of Brooklyn beers the Avenue Pub has many on tap now. Garrett Oliver was in very recently.

Easy to get to by trolley. Fairly small. What a neighborhood bar should be - met some friendly locals. Good selection of a wide variety of beers. The food menu is eclectic but is fabulous. Iíll definitely be back there next time Iím in New Orleans.

The selection is unbeatable. This place is dedicated to great beer. No other place that I have been to cares more about the institution of beer and beer education. Whether youíre looking for unbeatable beer, good company, or just a chill evening this is the place to go.

Had a great time there yesterday after seeing an ad for the place on a St. Charles St trolley. Really glad we did. Great pub atmosphere with stamped tin ceiling. Beer was properly served in good glassware. Bartender was very knowledgable, friendly, & helpful. Friendly patrons too. Had a good mix of local, regional, national, and imported beers on draft plus a great selection of bottled beer. Restrooms were clean. Food was pretty good although they were out of some our first choices. Someday Iíll go back.

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 kind of everything I want in a beer bar (nicely enough I am moving 5 blocks away from it in few months). Great tap list with very little dead weight, and nice but small bottle selection. Great Juit box (sp?), it even had Morphine on it. Not pretentious atmosphere and not a bunch of kids like myself either. This seems to be where the beer industry drinks in NOLA. When I move down myself and one of the guys from NOLA brewery are gonna have a tasting. Food is great bar food. I had the Not so Cuban (pulled pork with BACON), and the next day I had the No Name Duck (duck sandwhich with cole slaw) and guacamole and fresh chips. Drinks (over two days): Lazy Magnolia Stout on Nitro, Shakespeare Stout on Nitro, Oaked Arrogant Bastard, Stone Smoked Porter, NOL Hopitoulas IPA, Rogue Double Mocha Porter, covington Pilsner... Got to chat with owner both days, and was further impressed. This will be my neighborhood bar.

Itís a real shame that many of the ratings for this bar are from folks who arenít RateBeer raters because you should make the effort to visit this place when you travel to the Big Easy. This was a short walk from the Morial Convention Center through some beautiful old residential streets. There are 40 taps downstairs and more on their upstairs balcony (which I was not able to visit due to the fact that the upstairs is only open on Thursday through Saturday). If you are able to visit here during an off-time, you wonít be disappointed. The bartenders are quite knowledgeable about their beer. Most of what the "does not count" raters have stated is true. The place is definitely not for the beer snob (Aristocrat?). When I first walked in and sat down, an obviously disturbed gentleman at the bar wanted to carry on a detailed conversation with me about government mind control and the bible. In addition, I would imagine that the place gets very smoky when crowded, but hey, isnít this the kind of color that you came to New Orleans to experience? Soon enough, everyone started warming up to me (The Outsider) and we had a great old time talking beer. Even the owner, Polly, showed up and had a chat with me. The selection is remarkably outstanding in terms of attention to covering all the major styles of beer. In addition to the large tap number, they have a very nice number of bottles in their cooler. Proper glassware is used. I was pleased to see so many Brooklyn beers available on tap. The important aspect is their devotion to local beer. I was able to get NOLA, Abita, Bayou Teche, Covington and Lazy Magnolia here. A large selection of sandwiches and side are available just in case. Leave the kinder at home. Shame on you for having kids anyway. Doesnít that get in the way of your drinking?
