Top of the Hops: Courtyard Brewery Hosts Inaugural Louisiana Hop Festival


On Thursday, Courtyard Brewery will host the first ever Louisiana Hop Festival, a showcase of the best brews from the Boot.

Courtyard Brewery Celebrates One Year



An old maxim prescribes that the first year of business os the hardest. For Courtyard Brewery (1020 Erato Street) co-founder Scott Wood, this is certainly true.

So, on Saturday (10.24), Wood and his partner Lindsay Hellwig are throwing a party to mark Courtyard’s one year anniversary.


Solstice Celebrations


Today (12.21) is the winter solstice. That means days will get longer and the weather warmer from this point on. New Orleanians love an excuse for an event, and the solstice is no different. Celebrations include a cocktail pop-up, a beer takeover, and a serious discussion at a potluck.
