In 2009 when NOLA Brewing first opened selling beer from the brewery itself wasn't even an option. Thanks to a change in law or as I hear it maybe a reinterpretation of an already existing law(welcome to Louisiana) NOLA will now be able to sell beer on premise.
I received this announcement from them this morning:
NEW TAPROOM OPENS AT NOLA BREWING
NOLA Brewing Announces Taproom Grand Opening
New Orleans, LA (August 29, 2013)
- NOLA Brewing Co. (New Orleans, LA) will be opening a
taproom on September 10, 2013 at 4 p.m. to sell beer directly to consumers.
The taproom will have 16 beers on tap, comprised of eight beers from NOLA’s regular line-up
and eight specialty beers that will rotate regularly. It will also have a food truck schedule and
music on special occasions.
Beer will be available in pints or flights and growlers as well as six
or four packs can be purchased to take home too.
Its doors will open at 2 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m. on
Saturday and Sunday. The brewery will still host their $5 brewery tours every Friday where
guests can keep their NOLA pint glass and drink beer for free until 3:30 p.m.
Love this and am really excited! Congrats to NOLA Brewing and all the breweries in Louisiana! It really is a good time for breweries here in the state. Now if only New Orleans was more businessf friendly! Hopefully we will see more opening!
