Place rating #1100.

Visited February 17, 2014.

Upon first glance it doesn’t 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 you’ll see why this place is so highly rated. Also, I’m 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 I’d fly out here just for Zwanze day but they have done that event several years now if you’re looking for your Cantillon ticks.

Didn’t try any of the food and come to think of it I’m not sure they even serve food, but it’s 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 weren’t served eventually. If I go back to New Orleans some day this will be one of my first stops.

Stopped by during a recent trip to Louisiana. Awesome bar near the Garden District. Parking is on the street but when we went finding a spot was not an issue. Had a very nice selection of both imports, domestic and local beers. Staff was generally helpful and seemed to know about the beers they were pouring. I had heard a lot about this place and was prepared to be let down, but it lived up to the hype. While there was nothing "rare" on tap, the selection was very good and I had some great beers.

A definate dive like bar, smoking and non smoking with nooks, crannies and outdoor areas. Both times the bartenders have been awesome and I had a great time. Selection is great, with a pretty impressive bottle selection as well. Food is fresh made and pretty decent. Prices are a bit high, but staff is generous. Overall, lots of fun in NOLA.

Visited downstairs bar only on a slow Monday afternoon. Staff was dealing with an internet outage but was still incredibly friendly and attentive. Nice selection of local beers and interesting styles. Look forward to visiting again.

First stop of the afternoon. Pretty quiet midday Monday, which was fine by me. I was presented a full beer list upon sitting at the bar. The upstairs bar didnt open til 5PM on Monday, so no review of that is included. Downstairs bar had a four page taplist, Lots of unusual stuff, but nothing really jumped out at me, and a lot of the imports were pretty lowly rated stuff. MS/LA locals were solidly represented though. Longish bar to the left upon entering, some tables on the right. Others have said most of the rest. Flights of three available, forgot the price. Solid place, quite likely the best in New Orleans, but a ways from world class.

I visited Avenue Pub for lunch, knowing it was a highly-rated pub with a reputation for having an excellent selection. In fact the selection is excellent, with top-drawer regional and national beers well-represented along with a few international craft ales. The bartender was very helpful and knowledgeable, in addition to being quick and friendly. So far so good. Food was decent, no complaints there. Prices are also good for NOLA, which I found to be a pretty expensive city overall. BUT, smoking is rampant and I honestly had a hard time tasting what was probably outstanding beers. This hurt the ambience, which otherwise is almost dive bar - something I appreciate. I like a public house to be comfortable, and this one is. Other than the smoking :\

Honestly, why is this #2 in the world? The website reports 47 taps, but about 10 had no beer. The bottle list has some rare offerings. I love states that allow smoking in bars, but the smoke in this place is prohibitive to enjoying the beer. This may be a diamond in the rough for this area, but I don’t think it deserves the hype. The best thing about this place is the emphasis on local food.

Fantastic selection and really cool folks. Love the patio! Watch the trolleys roll by and the ladies jog up the track. Not too far from Cooter Browns or The Bulldog either.
