Let It Flow All Year Round

Let it Flow All Year Round!  There’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot New Orleans summer day, so let it flow. The condensation on the bottle can or glass is a visual reminder of the refreshment that’s sure to follow. The aroma varies from bread to bananas to pine to citrus to coffee and everything in between. The color ranges from the palest straw gold to burnished copper to the satisfying black of a well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Beer’s no longer just for summer days, crawfish boils and football games—it’s found a place at fine dining restaurants as [...]

American Craft Beer Week returns to New Orleans

New Orleans' beer scene has changed a lot in one year. When last year's American Craft Beer Week began, Urban South Brewery had just opened (March 2016), making it the third production brewery and sixth brewery (including brewpubs Crescent City Brewhouse and Gordon Biersch and microbrewery Courtyard Brewery) in the city. Since then, five breweries opened in Orleans Parish. Wayward Owl Brewing Company started brewing in November 2016, and four others were licensed to brew in March 2017: Brieux Carre Brewing Company in Faubourg Marigny, Parleaux Beer Lab in Bywater, Royal Brewery New Orleans in New Orleans East and Port [...]

A Tale of Two Beer Tour Buses

Beer tour buses helped make the New Orleans' beer scene one of the fast growing brewery tour destinations in the country. The New Orleans Original Brewery Tour, created and run every day at 4 p.m. by Premium Tours and Transportation, launched in conjunction with the opening of Urban South Brewing in March 2016. Premium Tours co-founder Patrick Healy notes that the tour needed three stops in close proximity, so waiting on Urban South to open was a no-brainer. Courtyard Brewery and NOLA Brewing round out the three-hour afternoon tour, which includes comfortable beer tour buses, beer samples, and a private tour of the brewery at each stop.
