Justin Boswell, formerly of Black Raven Brewing Company in Seattle, is opening Wayward Owl Brewing in the former Gem Theater at 3940 Thalia Street in New Orleans Central City neighborhood.
The 9,000 sf facility will include a 15 barrel brewhouse as well as a tasting room for beer-starved New Orleanians. New Orleans is the 50th largest city in the US and we currently have two breweries to slake the thirst of the populace: NOLA and Courtyard.
By way of contrast, Asheville, North Carolina is not in the top 200 US cities by population and has 18 breweries.
We’ve got some catching up to do.
It’s been reported that Boswell will be opening his brewery in 6-7 months. We hope he has a hell of a crew doing the build-out as the facility is massive. We did a walk through and shot a gallery of photos to document the progress of the project:
Thirsty for beer and can’t wait for Wayward Owl Brewing to open?
NOLA Brewing is also open 7 days a week
