Dive feel as you have to walk through the kitchen and then outside to get to the beer room. However, the trek is worth it as they have some rare national bottles that you wouldn't expect to see. Nice local stuff, just not much in the area.
Thx to previous reviews i headed directly to back room actually you go outside then to a separate room. Good selection and items i can't get in Texas (Pannepot). Very narrow main building. I was in a rush so didn't have time to look through coolers in main building good service. Didn't eat
Wonderful beer selection in the back room, but unfortunately, you can’t drink on the premises. I had the very best pastrami I have ever had outside NYC. I’ve added Stein and The Avenue to my list of places in NOLA that cannot be missed on every single visit.
Visited 26.4.16. Plenty of bottles and plenty of cans in the fridge, centrally located and most importantly - individual bottles for sale. Reading previous reviews I see that we missed a larger selection in the back room but given our state while visiting there - after quite a few cocktails. Oh well, it just means that we have to visit NOLA again sometime. Anyway, you don’t wanna miss this. Also - if you’re into hot sauce, their selection is decent and the prices are better than at the stores inside the French QTR.
Incredible place. I’m rating this place purely on the beer. It’s absolutely world class. Huge selection. Awesome range of local LA stuff and other southern breweries. Classic range of US micros. Excellent assortment of imports. Great prices. Most things available in singles. SO. MANY. BEERS in this place. I spent a while here but it could have been much longer. Had to really restrain myself. Would love to have this place as my local bottle shop. It is worth noting, make sure you check out the ’back room’, which is where most of the beers are.
First off, the food is fantastic; it’s worth stopping for even if there was no beer to be found here. Would love to have a deli of this caliber in Austin. We arrived for lunch Tuesday, January 5, 2016. It gets pretty crowded. There were some beer coolers to the right, but people were sitting in front of them, so we didn’t check those out. However, we did make it to the back room and found plenty to choose from. Lots of higher quality stuff. Purchased a couple of boxes loaded with beer and the staff helped us carry them to our car parked about half a block away. Excellent service.

Can’t believe I’ve never been to this place. Came to explore their beer selection and was not disappointed. They had dozens of beers that can’t be found anywhere else in NO, unless you are in a top beer bar. When I want an obscure beer I know where to go. Service was excellent. Interacted with Dan as well as other employees and they shared great insight.
A deli with beer and a beer room in the back. The deli is busy, so looking in the cooler can be challenging. Nobody really helped me and the food is great. Unfortunately you can’t drink the beer you buy. Selection is pretty good with some rare and odd stuff, mostly European.
Stopped by during a recent trip to Louisiana. This is an odd place, but not in a bad way. The front of the place is your typical Jewish-style deli with a menu full of dozens of sandwiches. If you go out the back door and around a corner you come to the beer room, which has a tremendous selection of beer. I found beers here I had not seen elsewhere in the state, including more than a dozen sours and a handful of barrel aged beers. The prices were maybe a bit higher than elsewhere but it wasn’t anything out of whack. Also, the food was delicious and the servings were very large. Definitely one of the best beer stores I have been to and a must stop if you are in the Big Easy.
