One of the better stops while visiting NOLA. Definitely more than six taps and fifty bottles. Excellent beer choices and a huge patio. Parking is terrible but it’s a reasonable Uber or Lyft ride from downtown. Points deducted for Barry Manilow and other sappy love song music playing in the background.

The current rating on this place is criminal. Superb joint with a solid selection and off the charts ambiance. The bartender offered lessons in bayou music culture that we will not soon forget. We were there on a sleepy mid week afternoon and can only imagine what this place does on a weekend night

This was an early stop, before work. Yeah, I had a beer before work. It’s a nice feeling actually, though this wasn’t the best place to be at 11am on a week day. It’s a large place that has a few seats out front, a lot of seating inside, and a large patio in the back which is where the party is (when there are actually customers here). They’ve only got about half a dozen taps but they have a bunch of bottles from all over and it was one of only two bars that I came across that had Anchor Christmas Ale still. That should be a bad sign but I take it as a good sign that the bar has the sense to order a crap load of that stuff. I’ll also mention that this is on Jefferson Davis about a block east from a trolley stop

I didn’t try the food as I was set on eating at Crescent City Pie and Sausage but it looked OK. Seems pretty standard for a menu. Beer prices were a touch high but not as bad as some of the places in the French quarter. This is a much quieter area than Bourbon St but there are still a few places around worth walking to for a beer, and this is one of them.

I also want to mention that this place was shown to me by someone that found it on The Beer Buddha’s website. He’s a local that scours the entire city looking for better beer and steered me towards a half a dozen places that weren’t on this site yet (more ratings to come). I don’t think he’s active here so check out his site.
