The Courtyard Brewery
From the moment visitors walk up the well-trodden ramp leading into the converted warehouse known as Courtyard Brewery, they know they’re in for something different. With an open loading dock door, you’ll see customers hanging out on the concrete patio that overlooks a parking lot ringed with giant bamboo. The brewery frequently hosts food trucks, with dining selections that are as diverse as the beers themselves.
Inside, the bar is packed with beer lovers who are sampling from one of Courtyard Brewery’s constantly changing selection of house-made beers, or from one of more than a dozen craft beers from around the globe.
Courtyard Brewery opened in October 2014 and is considered New Orleans’ first nanobrewery. Known for their highly specialized beer selection, the next time you’re in New Orleans’ Garden District, stop in, see what’s on tap and be sure to ask the stories behind the beers.
