When I got to New Orleans I asked around about a real beer bar and was eventually directed to a place named Avenue Pub. It was exactly what I was seeking! They have ~30 taps, of which 2/3 seem to be constantly rotated. When I was there they had a few cask conditioned local ales (new to me, awesome!) and a variety of unpasteurized winter beers from the motherland and beyond (I had Nogne O, Mahrs, and an Eisbock by Kulmbacher). They even had one of my favorites, Delirium Tremens, on tap (I didnít even know it existed on tap outside of Belgium). Additionally, they have several different serving sizes to allow you to taste as many unique beers as possible. They serve pints, 10 oz, and 4 oz samplers. I asked the bartenders if they regularly had unique beers like the cask conditioned brews and German winter seasonals and they said they receive casks directly from local brewers regularly and always try to have seasonal kegs from Europe. Apparently they also do quite the octoberfest, with over 20 unpasterized German beers being brought in. The ambiance was fine and the pub has a balcony overlooking the New Orleans street car line, which was very cool. It was also pretty easy to get to from my french quarter hotel - just a $1.25 15 minute street car ride. The bartenders are very helpful and the owner is said to frequent the establishment. There is also a gourmet sandwich shop that used to be a standalone business before being brought into the bar to bolster its appeal. I know this sounds crazy but the redfish sandwich really is the best sandwich Iíve ever eaten. Finally, the bar is open 24/7 which makes it ideal for any crowd. All in all this place was exactly what I was looking for and was easily the best bar I experienced in New Orleans. A Must go to location for a beer drinking enthusiast.

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.

Definitely the best beer bar I have been to in New Orleans. Rotating taps downstairs and upstairs at each bar. Nice balcony next to the upstairs bar so you can hang outside and drink. Great selection of beer and many locals included. Staff is helpful and friendly. Moderately priced and good enough location. I didnít try the food so I canít comment on that.

Very nice. Big rotating beer menu was presented right when we arrived. Server knew her beer there were dizzying selections including sours. Only had time to sample a couple beers no food. Not very big or nice inside.

This was the highlight of my last trip to New Orleans, at least beer wise. Great beer selection, and if you donít find what you want from among the 40 taps downstairs, there is a seperate bar upstairs with more to choose from. I started at the downstairs bar and then moved upstairs to sit on the patio while trying a few more beers. Nice atmosphere, friendly servers, and good prices. Didnít try the food.

Best beer bar in New Orleans. Incidentally, also an awesome place from which to watch parades on Lundi Gras. Top-notch beer selection. Chill atmosphere. Terrific staff -- just genuinely nice people. Iíve been to New Orleans twice; Iíve been here three times. Take from that what you will.

In New Orleans, this beer bar is pretty much as good as it gets for beer. The selection is quite vast. The ambiance is casual and unpretentious. The bartenders are chill. The bar food is good enough. This place reminds me a lot of Maxís Taphouse in Baltimore. At first glance, it looks like a normal sports bar, but upon any inspection of the tap list, you realize it is something much, much more than that. The draft selection is by itself pretty great, but for those who like looking at bottles, I am sure you will find some gueuze or sour that strikes your fancy. The beers are also very reasonably priced. Unlike New York, DC, or Philadelphia that serve tiny snifters of the high-end stuff for $10-$14 dollars, here a 6 ounce pour of an Italian gose was a mere $6. Fortunately, this bar also has a wonderful selection of local beers. We ordered some onion rings. They appeared to have been home-made and not frozen, which has ups and downs to it, but all in all is a big plus. The crowd was pretty nice, except there was an extremely drunk girl causing problems and a bunch of homeless people outside trying to hit you up for money (or trying to sell a dubiously acquired bicycle). But, I canít blame the bar for that. The bartenders were also willing to call a cab for people who didnít want to wade through the rabble.

Visited on New Yearís eve on our trip to New Orleans. Old school pub like environment with a downstairs bar with over 40 taps, seats outside, upstairs bar with 9 taps and a patio. Sat at the bar and had great selection to choose from. Once you start a tab you could get a beer from the bottom or upstairs bar. The staff was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with during our 3 hours there. A great list that was accurate and up to date. The bottle list was pretty good and not overpriced for some the more rare bottles. The food looked good but we didnít try so donít want to rate it here. The prices were great and overall a great beer destination in New Orleans. A must visit beer bar. Cheers!

My favorite beer bars in my favorite city. Send upstairs on the deck and check out iconic St. Charles, where the parade goes by every Mardi Gras.

Comments: Avenue Pub is a quick trolley ride from the French Quarter area down St Charles St. Itís an unassuming row house with a small sign. Interior is cramped, two stories with a different tap list upstairs. Bourbon and Scotch list was extensive with small pours available. Bottle list included 3F Hommage, but was for sale for $60 I believe. Tap list included Jolly Pumpkin, Magic Rock, Stillwater, and a few other specialties. Tap lines seemed clean. Food looked good. Staff checked on keg freshness for me, pulled out an inventory sheet to make sure a hoppy beer on was fresh. As always in nola, smoking is allowed inside and you can take beer to go as long as it is in a non-glass container. Theyíll give you plastic cups to go. Very fun, not to be missed. Pours ranged from about $6-8.
