NOLA Brewing Company

24 Mar

IMG_1157Last week I went to visit my grandparents in New Orleans. I had to make a point to stop by one of the local craft breweries, and there just so happened to be one very close to where we were shopping one day. The NOLA Brewing Company is two blocks away from Magazine Street off Tchoupitoulas Street. (I’d like to hear you try to pronounce that if you’re not familiar with the area).

It had a two story taproom with rooftop access and a view of the Mississippi River. They had the most expensive flights i’ve come across at $10 for four IMG_1155pours. I went with a raspberry sour called Desire, a pineapple habanero IPA, the Irish Channel Stout, and a porter that I forget the name of. I’ve learned from the few sours i’ve tried that i’m not a fan, but this was the best i’ve tried. They kind of fall into the same category as cider for me. I’m just not able to drink more than one at at time and they just don’t taste like beer. The pineapple habanero wasn’t very pinapple-y or spicy. The Irish Channel Stout wasn’t my favorite stout ever but I decided to take a 4 pack of pint cans home so I could bring a piece of New Orleans with me, which I think was $10.

The taproom had a small menu, which I didn’t really pay attention to since we were full from Juan’s Flying Burrito. Now THAT is some good eats. The beer was mediocre and the bartender was meh. If I lived there i’m not gunna lie, i’d IMG_1191probably go back to try more since they had i’d guess close to 20 beers on tap, but it wouldn’t be my first choice. Worth popping your head in if you’re area, but definitely not the 12 hour drive from Tampa.
