Beer in NO
I figured I'd post about New Orleans Lagers and Ales. This is a true New Orleans brewery that was founded a few years ago. I live down here on the Northshore, and love good beer. I'm also a homebrewer.
NOLA is a good choice for a locally produced beer, that is slowly gaining a foothold in the NO area. Good beer made with good ingredients.
I have no real connection to the brewery. I will also add that if you're on the Northshore, the Abita brewpub is a good place to stop in for a draught. And they always have several beers to choose from and a seasonal.
Downtown you can find good food, a nice bar, and fine beer at Gordon Biersch.
And if you're a fan of good beer, and you are in town for a weekend or just hanging around ... The Avenue Pub is a must visit.
