Ale in a Day's Work

Royal Brewery Joins the NOLA Craft Beer Scene



Royal Brewery sits among, and is typical of, the many warehouses that mark the area of New Orleans East situated near the lip of the levee, near the low flying planes headed towards, or from New Orleans’ Lakefront Airport. Royal Brewery is one of those special places where one can feel the breeze of the Mississippi making its journey upon lucky New Orleans residents. Their headquarters is not markedly different from the other warehouses in the area, save for the three hard working souls and the 30-barrel brewhouse system containing the brewmasters’ effervescent ales.
