Visited February 17, 2014.
This was most of the way through a long walk, part of which through the poorly lit neighborhood surrounding the NOLA brewery. The tasting room is actually quite nice despite the dumpy looking area. Inside is a nice bar and about two dozen taps. They’ll do flights or pints or just any number of tasters that you want (if you ask nicely). While I was there they had the usual lineup of 6 or so and a ton of experimental taps, many of which were dry hopped variations of certain beers (so not rateable). The server was really nice and let everyone at the bar try some things but that may have had to do with the fact that some of the people at the bar were regulars. They’ve got a few tables but the place was relatively empty on a work night so getting a seat at the bar was easy. Fun place, lots of ticks, decent beer. Since I need to explore the garden district a bit more anyway I’d definitely stop back in if I make it back to New Orleans.

The brewery has been around five years, but the taproom is new. Large wooded bar and a bunch of tables. Dog-friendly, there were two when I stopped in, including one belonging to the brewer. More than a dozen beers were on, all very interesting, and staff was very generous with the free samples, handing me the first before I had a chance to sit down (my kind of place!). Definfitely a fun stop. Sadly, bizarre state laws do not allow food beyond potato chips, I have no clue why.

One of the best breweries I’ve been to in awhile. Ample seating in the taproom with a few TV’s that brought in a few locals to watch the Saints game on the Sunday I was there. They also let you go into the warehouse area where they have cornhole and other games setup for everyone to use. Service was fantastic and extremely friendly. Not sure if it was just for the Saints game, but in the corner of the taproom they had a table setup with free jambalaya and chips/dip. Plenty of beers on tap with 13 pouring the day I was there. The beers themselves were varied in style and all-around delicious. Even their experimental offerings were solid. Would love to visit this place again next time I visit New Orleans.

8-10 beers on tap. Not very centrally located but easy to find by car. Good beers and very friendly service. Wi-fi. What else can I ask?

Love the new Tap Room. Great place to enjoy the NOLA lineup and some test and one-off batches. A few TVs to watch whatever’s going on. Keep up the great work.

The brewery’s tap room opened last week and it adds a much-needed comfortable space to regularly purchase and enjoy NOLA’s beer. They offer all their current selections on draft, as well as another 6-8 test batches and experiments like barrel aged beer and recipes they’re working on for their upcoming Imperial Porter and Pale Ale. You can often find food trucks parked outside, and sports events on the televisions.

Last month, I walked into the nola brewing, office on a non tour day and asked if I could take a look around. Dylan took a lot of time out of his day to show me around. After 4 beers and a lot of beer knowledge. I found out He was the vice president. I was even able to buy the first tap handle for a new beer they are working on.
With leadership like this they will go very far.

I had the pleasure of stopping by recently on a business trip to the area. We were lucky to be able to visit on a Wed afternoon as it was our only window of opportunity. Dylan met us and showed us around. He let us sample "all" of the beers and we were impressed. We talked a long time (until my non craft beer companions made me leave), and I am convinced NOLA will do well. These guys are dedicated and turning out high quality beers. The highlight was drinking their amazing pale ale which according to Dylan was made purely for the enjoyment of the NOLA employees! You can also drink their beers at a nearby restaurant I highly recommend called Cochon.

We stopped by on a whim on a Monday morning and were welcomed with open arms by Dylan, who showed us the brewery and offered us a couple tastes. This is why we love small local breweries -- friendly folks making exceptional beers for a small, local market. Recommend you call ahead because they’re not really set up for visitors. And whether or not you can visit here, you can always go a mile up the road to Avenue Pub and drink some pints of their outstanding brews! (Brewery #523)
