American Craft Beer Week returns to New Orleans
New Orleans’ beer scene has changed a lot in one year. When last year’s American Craft Beer Week began, Urban South Brewery had just opened (March 2016), making it the third production brewery and sixth brewery (including brewpubs Crescent City Brewhouse and Gordon Biersch and microbrewery Courtyard Brewery) in the city.
Since then, five breweries opened in Orleans Parish. Wayward Owl Brewing Company started brewing in November 2016, and four others were licensed to brew in March 2017: Brieux Carre Brewing Company in Faubourg Marigny, Parleaux Beer Lab in Bywater, Royal Brewery New Orleans in New Orleans East and Port Orleans Brewing Company on Tchoupitoulas Street near Napoleon Avenue.
