I love this place! I’ve never tasted beer this fresh! It’s in a great location in the French Quarter, close to lots of parking and the river. Best time to go is in the Fall when the weather is cool. As for a table on the upstairs balcony. Great view up there!
Nice New Orleans local brewpub. Their in-house beers are pretty good, and they have a "seasonal" that changes every month, so you can go in and get their beer sampler and they’ll bring you their four year-’round beers and their special. Nice waitstaff and excellent New Orleans style food. Their beer was good enough for me to wish they bottled, but they do offer growlers as consolation.
Pretty good beers; not many brewpubs specialize in lagers. Nice pils. In keeping with the German theme, I had the sausage with sauerkraut. Very tasty. Nice, cozy feeling decor. Definitely worth a stop in the French Quarter.
Nice location with great food. Short distance from French Quarter and TN river.
Atmosphere was nice with brewing equipment right behind the bar.
Beers are nice for LA though nothing fancy about them. Many could be nice if tweaked a bit.
Service is good but always this same corporate feel. Food was delicious. Better to get there in mid afternoon before the place gets packed.
This is a pretty decent brewpub. They're selection is somewhat limited - 4 regulars: pilsner, weisse, marzen, and dunkel/schwarzbier, and one seasonal: a hefeweizen when I visited. The beers were all decent, with the exception of the weisse beer, which for some reason is brewed with a yeast that produces no banana or clove (this is intentional, and I have no idea why). Food is excellent, a little pricey though. Nice atmosphere, there was a really good jazz trio playing during the dinner hour on both of my visits. Not outstanding, but definitely worth a visit.
Got dinner and drinks here my first night in a long weekend in New Orleans, and I was happy to get a chance to sample some beers at one of the city’s breweries. The building is awesome; a great restoration in an old building along Decatur Street, which otherwise has a lot of tourist trap spots like Hard Rock and Bubba Gump. There aren’t many beers at any given time; they have one year-round brews and generally keep just one seasonal going. I got the 5-beer sampler to try them all along with my German sausage platter. It’s a little expensive for the entrees, but there are a lot of menu options. I was with a buddy whose sister actually had just quit working here and was with us for dinner so we got great service; otherwise, they seemed a little understaffed for a busy night. The door said the kitchen was supposed to close at 10 but it appeared to go to at least 11 or so- seemed pretty loose and easy with how they ran the place, pretty much like every other place in New Orleans. The beer isn’t the greatest in the world but the atmosphere is a nice reprieve from the tourist traps around it and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the French Quarter.
