Looking to learn more about the rapidly growing craft beer scene in the GREAT city of New Orleans?
Then join us on a journey as we explore the rich brewing history of what was known as the Brewing Capital of the South in pre-Prohibition times and taste and learn about the breweries and beers that are leading the movement to return the Big Easy to brewing relevance.
New Orleans Brews Cruise is more than just a pub crawl – our focus is on educating our guests on the brewing process and the different styles of brews available at each stop. We are the owners and operators as well as your driver and tour guide on every tour. This allows us to make sure every group receives a personalized tour as well as providing the experience that we envisioned when starting the company. We are passionate about craft beer, but we are also passionate about showcasing the people behind the beer and breweries that our great city has to offer.
Each tour will feature an in-depth brewery tour at one of our three stops as well as samples of various sizes and styles at all stops. It is our goal to expand your palate and help you to explore and understand the nuances of the many variations that different beer styles have to offer.
We currently offer tours of New Orleans, Northshore, Baton Rouge and Lafayette breweries. All brewery tours (unless otherwise noted) will begin and end at The Avenue Pub located at 1732 St. Charles Avenue, which is centrally located to all areas of the city and easily accessible by various means of public transportation.
Each brewery tour consists of three stops and bottled water and snacks are available on the van. We also offer cold storage for any beer purchases you would like to bring home with you from each stop. A New Orleans Brews Cruise swag bag is also included in the tour price.
