Delicious smelling deli with a great beer selection, a bit cramped but Stein’s has the best selection in Nola. Dan is very helpful and always attentive to the wants on his customers. If it’s available in the area ask Dan and he’ll do his best to help you out. Busy guy as the deli does a ton business though. Great selection of imports as well as all the good craft and locals available here. Occasional gems from Fantome, Cantillon, Haandbryggeriet and others as well as obscure stuff you won’t find anywhere else. Amazing bagels and cream cheese and all the specials great. Very fair pricing as well as discounts for multiple bottles. Must stop in Nola.

Just got back from a visit to Steins. Picked up a Peche Mortel! Steins is a deli located on the corner of Jackson Ave and Magazine St. Dan is a very knowledgable guy and is very important in the beer scene here in New Orleans. They are starting to hold classes on the last Monday of the month at the deli which will awesome for NOLA. Very impressive selection of beers. Some beers I saw were(of the top of my head)Peche Mortel, Big Foot!, Bear Republic, Nice belgians in stock!, Old Rasputin, etc. He told me he will be getting in another 3 door fridge so I can only imagine what great beers he will be getting in. The only issues I have are: Can’t drink on premise and no prices listed for the beers. Other than that this place is a must go!!
Wonderful beer selection in the back room, but unfortunately, you can’t drink on the premises. I had the very best pastrami I have ever had outside NYC. I’ve added Stein and The Avenue to my list of places in NOLA that cannot be missed on every single visit.
Incredible place. I’m rating this place purely on the beer. It’s absolutely world class. Huge selection. Awesome range of local LA stuff and other southern breweries. Classic range of US micros. Excellent assortment of imports. Great prices. Most things available in singles. SO. MANY. BEERS in this place. I spent a while here but it could have been much longer. Had to really restrain myself. Would love to have this place as my local bottle shop. It is worth noting, make sure you check out the ’back room’, which is where most of the beers are.
Great selection of local and world wide beer. Dan is great to talk with and can often get you what you are looking for. Fair guy and fellow beer lover. He got me my 6 pk of Westy 12 Hard to beat that!!!

Can’t believe I’ve never been to this place. Came to explore their beer selection and was not disappointed. They had dozens of beers that can’t be found anywhere else in NO, unless you are in a top beer bar. When I want an obscure beer I know where to go. Service was excellent. Interacted with Dan as well as other employees and they shared great insight.
First off, the food is fantastic; it’s worth stopping for even if there was no beer to be found here. Would love to have a deli of this caliber in Austin. We arrived for lunch Tuesday, January 5, 2016. It gets pretty crowded. There were some beer coolers to the right, but people were sitting in front of them, so we didn’t check those out. However, we did make it to the back room and found plenty to choose from. Lots of higher quality stuff. Purchased a couple of boxes loaded with beer and the staff helped us carry them to our car parked about half a block away. Excellent service.
An impressive selection of bottles with cantillon, nogne and struise. Friendly staff willing to help you find what you are looking for. Amazing sandwiches. I will always stop here everytime I am in New Orleans.
Jewish deli meets beer market. The sandwiches here are no joke: roast beef & Swiss on soft ciabatta rocked my world. On par with the best NY delis, and better in many ways. Beer selection is extensive, and it apparently isn't unusual to find 3F lambic on the shelves. Stein is a character himself. I'd be here all the time (often for food, often for beer) if I lived in NOLA.
