HL Does NOLA from A to Z: URBAN SOUTH BREWERYPosted: April 25, 2016
U is for Urban South Brewery. My humans discovered Urban South a couple of weeks ago when they went to a top-secret Uber party. The ride-share company was celebrating a New Orleans anniversary and the first 100 people to connect with one of the Uber party cars got to bring a guest to a secret location to celebrate. My human daddy somehow connected with a special car (let’s just say persistence pays off) and a nice driver stopped by our house and whisked my humans away. Turns out the party was at Urban South, just a couple of miles from my house. Naturally my humans asked the Urban South people if the tasting room is dog friendly (they tend to ask this question practically everywhere they go). When they found out that it is, they planned a special outing just for me. (FYI, the tasting room is child friendly too. There’s even a little play area.)
Urban South was founded by brewery president Jacob Landry, who developed a passion for craft beers when he spent a college year in Europe. He worked in education before pursuing his brewing dream. The brewery’s taproom is open Thursday through Sunday, with a wide variety of Urban South beers on tap and multiple tours each day. (Check out the website here for specific times.) There are fun board games available for humans to keep themselves entertained and food trucks make appearances so no one goes hungry.
The nice people at Urban South Brewery are the new kids on the ever-expanding New Orleans beer-brewing block, and we are super excited to welcome them . . . especially since they are so welcoming to our doggy friends. I hope you’ll stop by on your next tour of New Orleans. You just might see me there.
