NOLA Brewing

Brewery in Garden, Lower Garden & Central City

This cavernous brewery welcomes guests throughout the weekend for a free brewery tour that kicks off with sloshy cups of craft brew and a food truck or two out front. The rest of the week? Stop by the taproom, which has plenty of beers on tap and a roof deck.

As for the brewery tour, it's a high-energy gathering of youngish folks and beer enthusiasts who want to get gently buzzed and hang out in a festival-like setting – and maybe learn about beer. Beloved originals include the NOLA Blonde and the Hopitoulas.
