Craft Beer in the Crescent City

Craft Beer – New Orleans Style

In this episode Mark is joined by Nora McGunnigle, local beer writer and founder of www.NOLAbeerblog.com.  Listen to Nora and Mark as they take you on a virtual tour of the New Orleans beer scene.

They discuss the early history of beer in New Orleans which goes almost all the way back to the founding of the city in 1718.  Mark and Nora discuss the evolution of the beer industry in New Orleans, the landscape post-Katrina and the scene today. You’ll learn about Abita Beer, NOLA Brewing, Urban South, 40 Arpent, and Bayou Teche breweries among others.

The two also talk about the best places to enjoy a local craft beer, and discuss the festivals where craft beer is front and center.
