New Orleans’ Original Brewery Tour is all about having a great time, getting to learn about the brewing process and history of brewing in New Orleans, and, of course, sampling some damn fine beer!
Our tour begins with a hotel pickup in our brand new van, and then the fun begins. Since all of the breweries that we tour are within 2 miles of downtown New Orleans, our travel time is virtually nonexistent.
Our first stop is Courtyard Brewing, a nano-brewery. We start you off easy with a cold, 4-6 oz beer sample, and get to tour their three-barrel system located just behind the bar. After getting your second 4-6oz beer sample at Courtyard, check out the patio or chat with your knowledgeable bartender before we head on to the next brewery.
Up next is Urban South Brewery, New Orleans’ newest brewery. We keep things moving with an ice cold 4-6oz beer sample, and then tour their shiny new custom brewing setup, followed by another 4-6oz beer sample!
Our final stop of the day is at New Orleans largest brewery, NOLA Brewing. At NOLA, they literally hand us the key to the brewery, where you will get a behind the scenes tour of the brewery floor. Afterward, we make a stop in their tap room to finish strong with two Full Beers! If you’ve worked up an appetite from all that beer, McClure’s Barbecue is also available for purchase.
