Next week NOLA Brewing is celebrating the grand opening of their new taproom. The concept came to life after Hurricane Isaac pretty much tore open a new room in the brewery a year ago, and now, according to The Times-Pic, NOLA prez Kirk Coco and company are ready to test out their new 16-tap system on willing beer lovers. The taproom's manager Jen Harvey also tells Gambit's Nora McGunnigle that there's a sort of sports bar vibe, "where people come to watch the games with their favorite brew in hand." Of the 16 beers on tap, 8 are old faithfuls like NOLA Blonde and Hurricane Saison, and 8 are very special brews only available at the brewery.
As for the look, per The TP:
The taproom, which is already used for private events, has a light, clean look with a long, lean bar and wooden high-top tables and chairs. Three television screens above the bar are put to use during football games and other sporting events.
A grand opening celebration will take place on Tuesday, September 10 at 4 p.m. Rue Chow and La Cocinita will be parked out front, and Magnitude and the Brass-a-holics will perform. Beers of varying size will be available for purchase in the taproom from $3 to $7. McGunnigle also reports that the brewery plans to have a rotation of visiting food trucks on a regular basis.
Taproom Hours: Closed Tuesdays. Monday, Wednesday-Friday opens at 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday opens at 11 a.m.
