About Our Brewery Tours

At New Orleans Original Brewery Tour, we’re all about providing you with a great time and a safe beer tour experience; beginning with a hotel pickup in our brand new luxury van, followed by a short two-mile beer hop.

Our tour features three breweries, Courtyard Brewing, Urban South Brewery, and NOLA Brewing, where you will enjoy a guided tour, while learning about the brewing process and history of beer brewing in New Orleans, and of course, sampling a variety of some damn fine locally brewed beer!

Five Star Service

About Us

Our story began with a casual conversation between two friends who generally spent Friday afternoons together enjoying a few beers at Nola Brewing. In the spring of 2016, on a typical Friday, founders, Peter Van Dusen and Patrick Healey decided to take the initiative and find a solution for providing easy access – for the millions of tourists visiting New Orleans throughout the year – to the amazing craft beer and the growing number of breweries opening in and around town.
