Downtown New Orleans has not one but two micro-breweries!

The Crescent City Brewhouse, located in the French Quarter near the
river, is not only a really good restaurant but it's also the only micro-brewery
in the Vieux Carre. Dining for lunch or dinner in a casual atmosphere
is relaxed and festive. You can listen to live Jazz on most nights or
just sit outside on the upstairs balcony overlooking the Mississippi.
Upstairs makes a great place for private parties. The house selection
of distinctive lagers are brewed daily on site and have won numerous
awards. My personal favorite is the Pilsner Brew, a light beer that is
one of many to select from.

Gordon Biersch Brewery, located across from Harrah’s Casino, has
great food in a casual atmosphere featuring American cuisine influenced
by International flavors. It also offers fresh beer specializing in authentically
brewed German lagers. With several large TV screens in the bar area,
it makes for a great place to gather for all sporting events. This venue
has become a popular meeting place for local businesses and its proximity
to the Convention Center makes it very convenient for convention delegates.
Private areas are available for parties and validated parking is available
in Harrah’s garage.

Hungry and thirsty visitors can’t go wrong choosing either the
Crescent City Brewhouse or Gordon Biersch for a really enjoyable dining
experience along with a fresh cold brew.
