Second Line Brewing (433 N. Bernadotte) is very close to opening near Delgado and City Park. Final inspections are taking place this week and brewers Karl Menzer of Covington/Abita fame and Shane Glackin now on board alongside owners Mark and Karen Logan. The brewery's first beers will be a pale ale and an IPA. Taproom plans to come.
Also exciting news for Mid City: A new growlers-to-go shop 504 Craft Beer Reserve may open in November on Tulane Ave from Patrick Brown and Jason Paulin, who plan to do beer classes and food pairing events as well.
