Visted on a Thursday afternoon during Mardi Gras. We missed the lunch rush and had a chance to sit at the bar and kill a few pints. Reasonable ambiance accentuated by the copper brewing tuns and the brewmaster hard at work during our visit. Most of the beer we sampled was marginal at best but the ambiance and food are respectable. Worth a trip when in the area.

Pretty good beers; not many brewpubs specialize in lagers. Nice pils. In keeping with the German theme, I had the sausage with sauerkraut. Very tasty. Nice, cozy feeling decor. Definitely worth a stop in the French Quarter.

Food? GOOOOD. It’s New Orelans - the food here is so good its retarded. The beer? Meh. Major suckage. Not even a decent ale in the house. But the staff is great, friendly, and it is touristy, but its a good touristy.

Mixed feelings about this place. First, the location is great if your starting point is in the French Quarter, as it is right across from the old Jax Brewery. The service was spot on. And the building itself has a lot of charm, from the courtyard and the balcony, to the main bar and dining room. On the less positive side, the beer was uninspired and was probably meant to cater to the gentler palates of the tourist trade. A pils, weissen, marzen, dark wheat, all were pretty interchangable. No great bargains on the menu, either, although just around the corner you can find a more authentic Po’Boy for $$$’s cheaper. Worth a visit, just so you can form your own opinion.

Not impressed at all. People were friendly enough, but when I visited, there were only three beers on tap. Asked for a sampler. Got three beers and the offer to have a dupe of one I liked. Fine. Total was still $8 for 4-3oz samples. Rip-off. Hopefully, their seasonals are in better shape than the daily offerings.

In town for the 2008 BCS Championship Game. Very Sad the Buckeyes didn’t win. But O well. This place was pretty nice. In a cool old location. It was clean and the people were nice. The beer was SO SO. The food was pretty good.

A large terrific restaurant brewpub. Some cool local art on the walls (when we were there, there was a Christian-Voodoo themed bunch of pieces around us very intersting). Check out the neon jellyfish above the bar very cool. Excellent wait staff, good food (our large table shared 6 appies and we all had a main and none of use were disappointed). I was very disappointed that 2 of the 4 beers I tried were heavily tainted by unclean lines. I politely talked about this with our server, and she said she’d pass it on. Definitely willing to give it another shot if/when we return.

I have been to this place twice in both of my trips to New Orleans. I really like the atmosphere, the bartenders are friendly, and the food is excellent. The beers are nothing special though. Still a good place to visit and a nice location.

I love this place! I’ve never tasted beer this fresh! It’s in a great location in the French Quarter, close to lots of parking and the river. Best time to go is in the Fall when the weather is cool. As for a table on the upstairs balcony. Great view up there!

This was a nice brewpub located on the edge of the French Quarter. The food was very good but the beers were subpar. They had the usual generic suspects on tap. This sums up New Orleans, you go for food and atmosphere but not for beer. I recommend stopping by for some food and an ok beer though.
