Once home to such breweries as Jax, Dixie and more, New Orleans has waxed and waned in its brewery scene over the years, but the city and its surrounding areas are beginning to open up more breweries and tap rooms with each passing year. Here’s a tour of some of the breweries you can find in and around New Orleans.
NOLA Brewing (3001 Tchoupitoulas St – Uptown)
Located in the Irish Channel Uptown, NOLA Brewing (New Orleans Lager & Ale) is a local darling that has expanded rapidly since opening in 2008. This brewing team is dedicated to “bringing the history and tradition of beer back to New Orleans with craft-brewed beer.” It currently produces five regular beers, including locally themed names like Hopitoulas, 7th St Wheat and Flambeau Red. It also has a tap room you can visit and try out these beers for yourself.
