There are plenty craft beer events in New Orleans tonight but the leader of the pack is easily the barrel-aged promotion taking place at Avenue Pub.
This is where the craft beer conversation starts in New Orleans. Owner Polly Watts is dead serious about bringing the best of USA’s microbrew to town, and tonight she proves it with 10 barrel aged options ranging from North Coast’s Old Rasputin Imperial Stout (2012) to Founder’s legendary Kentucky Breakfast Stout.
Local big boys Abita will have their Pappy Van Winkle aged Bourbon Street Stout gushing from a tap as well.
The Bulldog Mid City will host Gnarly Barley, a three year old brewery out of nearby Hammond. They’re bringing a keg of dry-hopped Catahoula Common.
