Best New Orleans Breweries

New Orleans is an excellent place to get a drink (or a few). Our city is one of only a handful in the United States that lacks open container laws, which means you are free to drink alcohol in public places. There are also a number of classic New Orleans cocktails, such as the Sazerac, grasshopper, and Roffignac, that visitors should be sure to try. But what travelers don't always realize is that we're home to a robust beer and brewery scene that only continues to grow. Take a look at some of the best New Orleans breweries and learn how to visit them all on your very own brewery crawl from La Galerie Hotel.
