Right along the river, just south of the French Quarter. Lots of beers on tap, all their own. Had a couple of then, and they were both very good. They have a local BBQ outfit running the food concession. A pretty decent selection, and the sausage I had was excellent. I’d definitely go back!
Brewery on the edge of residential neighborhood in Garden District, on the street that I had to ask how to pronounce. About 16 (?) taps, all their own. Upstairs and downstairs, inside and out. You can fit a lot of people here. Pretty crowded on a nice Sunday afternoon but we easily found a table on balcony overlooking the river (ish), and had a nearby TV to watch NCAA tourney games. Flights are available and reasonably priced, but get them downstairs where they have more taps. Carrying my flight up the stairs and back outside was worth it to get the Donut Coffee beer. Nice atmosphere, albeit a bit younger crowd--which can be a good thing. We walked from Magazine St which may not be recommended at night. Short Uber back to FQ, and apparently Urban South is nearby as well. We will return
Nice place. On our visit the barman was more interested in talking to the local talent than serving customers, which made us leave after a couple of brews. I think that the overall score for this place is way off the mark. Mid-to-high 70s would be more appropriate. Slightly isolated position, but as mentioned, easily reached by public transport.
The brewery is in a quiet open part of town so parking is decent. Lots of places inside to sit as they have upstairs and downstairs and taps on both levels. The food was excellent here as well. Pretty close to Urban South Brewery.
Reachable by the #10 bus from Poydras street (central), or the streetcar on St. Charles plus a walk south. Characterless modern two-level taphouse serving 20 of their own beers, nothing of superb quality, but enough diversity for picky drinkers. An unremarkable barbecue restaurant shares space with them.

Interesting place. Easy and free street parking out front. I walked into the brewery proper first, but was politely redirected to the tasting room. There is an interesting ’waiting room’ as you enter, complete with lounge chairs and magazines. Inside is a standard tasting room. Taps are on a screen as well as a chalkboard; note that the chalkboard is the more current of the two. Flights of four (you choose) are $8. They typically have their core line up in cans as well as maybe a bottle or two of special stuff to go at any time. I didnt count taps, but I am pretty sure it was more than ten. Bar was long and plenty of seats on a Monday evening. Some tables as well. I THINK that the bathrooms are outhouses outside, but I elected to hold it rather than find out. No significant food. Service was good, bartender was pretty forthright about which of their beers he didn’t like :). Beers were decent, with a couple of standouts. I REALLY enjoyed the tart hogtied. Excellent.
Update in Spring 2017 - there is an onsite BBQ place now that you can order from. Kind of like a permanent food truck. I thought the brisket was only fair, however.
Only downside is that it is hard to get to, have to ride a bike, get a cab, or walk a few miles from downtown. Besides the location this place is great! Humble looking from the outside but the tap room is fairly new and they have a large amount of rotating "brewery only" beers to choose from, along with a set list of ones that they distribute everywhere. When I was there they had a few sours and strange ones that won’t ever be bottled. They have brewery tours on the weekends which are free and include an hour of free beer pours (3 or 4 to choose from). Tour was informative and humorous, and, free beer. Worth a visit if you are in New Orleans for more than a day.
