Dropped by for a nice sampler of local beer and tasty barbeque. Friendly and knowledgable staff and an enjoyable evening.

Great spot - really enjoyed. I've been a fan of their brews on previous visits to the city, and the tap room was impressive. Our bartender was a sweetie, very knowledgeable and fast. Impressive tap-room only options, with several that we really enjoyed and that we would happily revisit. There was a Jamaican-Creole food truck on site, but we had just eaten so we enjoyed the sumptuous smells. A nice second-level bar as well, with a view of the brewery floor. They were preparing for a viewing-party event as well, and everyone was super welcoming and friendly. There is an in-house BBQ stand that has a good reputation, we might have to schedule a visit there when they are open. Awesome brewery - thanks for a great time!

Bachelor party must to day drink and hang out in Nola. Great beer, great environment and staff as well. The food looked phenomenal as we just came from lunch but everyone ate the crawfish and couldn't rave higher about it. The variety of draft beer suites all beer lovers.

It wasn't that long ago that it was pretty tough to get good beer in New Orleans. All the national brewers are here, but if you wanted something regional, it was pretty much Abita and Sweetwater out of Atlanta. Well, friends, New Orleans is full-on with craft brewing now, and I couldn't be happier. There are a bunch of taprooms and more springing up, but NOLA Brewing has a great handle on it. It's a good-sized place, easy to get to, includes a big covered, second-floor deck and two bars serving their regular brews and a long list of creative one-offs. As with any good taproom, you can always get a glass of something here that you'll never see in a store.
But here's the genius of it: a BBQ restaurant right inside the taproom! McClure's BBQ cooks and serves incredibly good eats 10 feet away from the bar. Which is why this a regular stop when we're in town and it should be for you too.

This place is great! They have a huge variety of their own beers on tap. There really is something for every beer taste. You will have no trouble finding something and the prices are incredibly reasonable. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and will help you out if you’re not sure what to go for. One thing that was on VERY slightly annoying (but honestly not really) is that not all the beers are located in the top floor bar so you might have to go down stairs to get a beer you want. Again, this isn’t really a big deal.

They have BBQ as well that you can order from a window. There were plenty of veggie items, which I was THRILLED about. This doesn’t usually happen in BBQ places. EVER. The veggie options were delicious! They had the smokey flavor you look for in BBQ. There were about 10 different types of BBQ sauce you could chose from, which was, well crazy! Haha. They definitely make sure everyone is happy here. All my friends and my husband who got meat BBQ items absolutely loved it. There mac and cheese is incredible too. I loved this place! It’s a bit off the beaten path so you will probably have to take a Lyft or drive over there.
