Saturday 22nd Avenue Pub All Day paid tasting event. There will be special kegs, multiple casks, beers sent in just for this event.

If you don't see times it's because I didn't see times either and you should contact the bar or brewery. On a side note I find it ironic that the one bar that always wins Best Beer Bar in New Orleans awards ALL the time is not on this list. Their unwillingness to participate in events such as this just solidifies the fact that they DO NOT deserve the title of Best Beer Bar in New Orleans. Do you here me Draft Magazine? Please take Cooter Browns off of your list. Plus their beer list hasn't been updated probably since the late 90s. No seriously, Rickenjacks isn't even around anymore and we don't even get Breckenridge here in New Orleans.
