New Orleans Microbreweries

New Orleans microbreweries offer beer "that you can sip rather than slam."

Nothing quenches the thirst after a day about town like a crisp, refreshing pint. In the past few years several craft breweries have opened in neighborhoods as diverse as the Irish Channel, Lower Garden District and Mid-City. Most offer tasting rooms that complement the brewing operations, and some even pair beer with dining options.

Locate a seat and order a glass with the confidence your beer was made across the room in New Orleans and not across the country.

“It's a marathon—not a sprint,” says James Gentry, beer buyer at local gastro-business St. James Cheese Company. “Locals know where to get a [beer] that you can sip rather than slam.” Belly up to the bar at these places for some New Orleans brew.
