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!)

A nice walk (about a mile?) or trolley ride from the French Quarter, the Avenue Pub is an excellent place to stop. Open 24 hours, it is located in an old house with an extensive bar downstairs and a more limited bar upstairs. Seating seemed limited both upstairs and downstairs; we found some open tables on the balcony. The bartender was quick, friendly, and the selection of draft beers is what you are expecting (and why you came here). Cheers!

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 they’d put a dent in it!) of Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. Polly, the owner, clearly has a high standard for what’s she’s willing to put on tap at Avenue Pub and it shows in the quality of the selection. I didn’t 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 can’t 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. I’ll definitely be back there next time I’m 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 you’re 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 I’ll 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 weren’t 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 it’s legal in NO). Can’t wait to return.
