So this was an interesting place. Itís in an old traditional NO house with porches all around the upstairs. Looks well broken-in and comfy. Lots of taps downstairs, and a handful of food items. I had the lamb and beef meatball sandwich which was delicious. The beers are varied, with a number of local things, Belgian stuff and others. Downstairs was smoking, though, but ventilation was OK. My first visit was on a Friday night, and the only open barstool was at the second bar in the rear. It took me a while to figure out that you canít order beer or food from that bar, and staff gave me no hints. Upstairs had one firkin and some handpull casks, ranging from Thornbridge Halcyon to Evil Twin Imperial Doughnut. Solid place. Several decent hotels within a couple of blocks, which made the visits much easier.

my summary of Avenue Pub is that, for my short week in New Orleans, I felt that this bar is legitimately one of the best beer bars in the United States. a few things that are very important that they seem to excel at: 1) create a unique, comfortable, welcoming and social environment: upstairs and downstairs bars, balcony outside up top and a painted stairwell that will remind you of a college house. 2) expansive tap list with balance of local, regional, national and international options. 3) expansive bottle list with the same, including some bottles considered quite rare in the states. 4) they arrange events featuring exclusive taps of high quality and varying styles, pretty much ensuring that thereís no person that could visit and NOT find a number of good things to try, new to that person.

Place rating #1100.

Visited February 17, 2014.

Upon first glance it doesnít look like much but when you either 1) explore the property and see the multiple bars and the neat patio on the roof and in the back or 2) look closer at the tap list youíll see why this place is so highly rated. Also, Iím sure that the general crappiness of the NOLA beer scene makes this place look that much more awesome. They have several dozen taps and will sell 4oz glasses of pretty much everything. They also have a good amount of bottles. On tap I had a glass of the Hill Farmstead / Blaugies saison and it was very nice. Smaller glasses of half a dozen other beers were ordered as well for the sake of trying them. Then upstairs where they have a separate tap list a few more tasters were ordered. The employees were very nice and helpful in picking out beers to try. One of the best was a pale ale of sorts (3% abv I think) from Spain that was good and hoppy. There was a black IPA and a quad mixed in there for good measure. Overall great selection. Not sure Iíd fly out here just for Zwanze day but they have done that event several years now if youíre looking for your Cantillon ticks.

Didnít try any of the food and come to think of it Iím not sure they even serve food, but itís irrelevant as I was enjoying a glass of Blaugies and having a good time. That, and there is a BBQ place a few blocks up St Charles called Voodoo BBQ that I wanted to check out. Turns out that it was kind of lame, but at least now I know better.

Complaints include prices and that while the service was very friendly they were busy talking to regulars and not paying attention to anyone else, not that we werenít served eventually. If I go back to New Orleans some day this will be one of my first stops.

A definate dive like bar, smoking and non smoking with nooks, crannies and outdoor areas. Both times the bartenders have been awesome and I had a great time. Selection is great, with a pretty impressive bottle selection as well. Food is fresh made and pretty decent. Prices are a bit high, but staff is generous. Overall, lots of fun in NOLA.

An excellent place that lives up to its reputation. I recall the place having a worn-in feel - in the best way possible. Itís a big place, with lots of seating options. Although, we visited during the day midweek, so there were only a few patrons at the time. The beer selection is massive, with tons of interesting stuff on tap and in bottles. Lots of local/southern breweries, other US classics, Belgian stuff. Pretty good prices. The place has a nice story, too; as I recall, a woman inherited the bar from her father and then, slowly, and starting with Belgian beers, turned it into the place that it is now. I didnít eat here, but the food offering looked solid, and if they execute it anywhere near the level they do for beer, then itís probably great. If you are a beer geek visiting New Orleans, then a visit here should be your top priority. This is one of the best barís Iíve ever visited.

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.

December 2010. Without a doubt the premier beer destination in NO. Just a short drive or a trolley ride from the heart of the touristy areas, the Avenue Pub was a warm and welcoming respite on a cold day. Owner Holly can talk beer with the best of them. The food was fresh and delicious, although it did seem to take a long time to come out on an empty afternoon. Would definitely return -- some hard-to-find gems in a glass can certainly be discovered here! (Also, visit NOLA Brewing just a few blocks away!)

Lived up to the hype. Would be a great bar even if it wasnít beer geek heaven for NOLA. The caliber of beer on tap is impressive, several rare bits, regional beer, etc.

The pub is away from the French Quarter in an old two story house. The upstairs has funky ambiance and a patio, the downstairs has delicious food and a long bar with a pool table and some seating. Probably the best beer list in New Orleans. They focus on having a rotating selection of quality beers. There were a few breweries represented that I havenít seen on the east or west coast. Prices are okay. I ate a grilled goat cheese and bacon sandwich with jalapeno coleslaw. Delicious.

First impression was quite awful. I wanted to turn around and run. Small bar full of people, smoke everywhere, people pushing, beer list very hard to read (most of the beers crossed over)... I was encouraged to stay and have a drink. I had too. The service was friendly but slow. The selection was quite limited (what comes to local beers) but still I was able to find something to drink. No need to come back. I was disappointed.
