ambiance: Part dive-bar, part two-story row house. Decent-ish part of the seemingly hipster part of New Orleans. Lots of space, long bar. Upstairs balcony patio, plus basement. Functioning cigarette machine--haven’t seen one of those in ages. service: Perfect mix of sarcastic laissez faire, beer knowledge, and good conversation. Selection: forget about it. One of the absolute best places for selection that I’ve ever been in the world. About 50 taps with lots of locals and craft selections, nary a macro to be found. Then an absolutely massive bottle list, including tons of stuff at cellar temps that have to be cooled a bit before service. WOW. food: Bar fare, but pretty darn good. The dump truck fries are money, the grilled cheese too. Cheese board was on point. value: Was there long enough that I don’t remember how much the tab was. I do know things weren’t too unreasonable. Pretty average, I think. overall: One of my very favorite bars I ever found. Any time I’m back in New Orleans, I’ll be back here. Great place.
Visited on the nights of January 3rd and 4th, 2016 (Sunday and Monday). Great selection. 40-50 taps, with a good mix of local, national, and international brews. Excellent bottle list as well, with some cellared options. 4 oz. pours available. Bartenders were friendly and really knew their stuff. Open 24 hours. I highly recommend a visit here if you’re in New Orleans.
Great spot with an excellent draft selection, nice cellar, and delicious pub food. Had some 3F Golden Blend followed by some Elijah Craig 23 and burger with goat cheese and candied bacon. Good service, bartenders are fun and engaged. Definitely worth a visit.
Awesome beer bar with a uniquely New Orleans vibe. Drank at the upstairs bar which has an absolutely superb whiskey collection (Parkers heritage, btac, four roses limited edition, van winkle etc etc) for extremely reasonable prices. There was also a tremendous beer selection between the tap and bottle list. Everything was very reasonably priced and the service was great. Really cool place to grab a beer/whiskey that I would spend way too much at if it were close to where I live.
Visited downstairs bar only on a slow Monday afternoon. Staff was dealing with an internet outage but was still incredibly friendly and attentive. Nice selection of local beers and interesting styles. Look forward to visiting again.
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.
Definitely the best beer bar I have been to in New Orleans. Rotating taps downstairs and upstairs at each bar. Nice balcony next to the upstairs bar so you can hang outside and drink. Great selection of beer and many locals included. Staff is helpful and friendly. Moderately priced and good enough location. I didn’t try the food so I can’t comment on that.
