I stopped in at Urban South Brewery in New Orleans, Louisiana. Getting there gave me a good opportunity for a long walk after a day long workshop in New Orleans. After sizing up the beers on tap I decided to go with the Holy Roller IPA. Hey, I’m a holy roller, why not? And it’s been a while since I’ve had an entire IPA. I’ve been branching out into other styles. I found Holy Roller to be quite good. Hoppy but not overboard. Not heavy or resiny. Very nice to drink and enjoy. I wish I liked crawfish. There was a company selling coked crawfish and many locals were enjoying them. Quite a large group – lots of energy.
Back at Crescent City Brewhouse in New Orleans, Louisiana in January 2017 – Red Stallion Ale and bowl of gumbo. You simply can’t beat this combo. The beer is malty sweet plus hoppy at the same time – very easy to drink – perfect with the gumbo. Makes for a hearty meal.
I stopped in at Crescent City Brewhouse in New Orleans, Louisiana for dinner and a beer. The seafood gumbo was delicious. Spicy and filling. And I paired the seasonal Kolsch with it which was perfect. A great dinner after a long day of travel. Every time I travel to New Orleans I stop in at Crescent City Brewhouse.
I stopped in at The Courtyard Brewery in New Orleans, Louisiana and enjoyed the How Can Anything Ever End Imperial Brown Ale. This is the first imperial brown ale I have ever enjoyed. It was delicious. Very drinkable. Slightly malty/sweet. I highly recommend this beer.
