I was road tripping from Boston to California last month and stopped off in New Orleans for a couple days to check out Bourbon Street and the… er-ah… culture there. I’m always trying to get out to area brewpubs when I travel—see what the locals are drinking and whatnot—and Crescent City fit the bill this time around.
I ordered the house IPA—highly drinkable with an overtly bitter aftertaste, I enjoyed it thoroughly with a ‘gator steak. Thankfully, Crescent City’s got a solid Deep South menu to go along with their beers, because this one packed a bit of a wallop after the first yard. I’ve heard they retired the India Pale since my trip. Too bad, I would’ve gone back for another next time I was in town.
