Last stop of the night. Kind of surprised that this isnít already in here. Itís right on the edge of the French quarter a block over from Canal Street. Itís a dark noisy bar kind of away from the mess of Bourbon Street. They only have half a dozen taps but they have several fridges full of beer. I went with an old standby, Chimay Blue, but they also had a bunch of imports. Lindemans, Weihenstephaner, Samuel Smith, Hitachino, Delirium, etc. They also have plenty of domestic beers too. Some of the obvious ones like New Belgium, Shiner, and Sierra Nevada are all there as are some of the slightly more local ones like Abita and Dixie (not really that local). Of course there is some junk mixed in there but obligatory like New Castle, Heineken, Boddingtons, and Michelob.
Beer prices are pretty good as is the service, though the bartender was confused when I asked for water. This is a fun place to hang out if you want to walk a couple blocks off the strip.
