NOLA Brewing's New Taproom Ready for Saints Season

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.
