New Orleans On Tap Brings Oktoberfest to City Park

Summer was rough on the wallets of many New Orleanians. But, do not despair because that ticket to Bavaria isn’t going to happen. Oktoberfest is coming to NOLA. On Saturday (9.26), New Orleans On Tap will flood City Park with 400 different beers not to mention some great music.

Brew Krewe: Beer Fest Winners Announced

The New Orleans on Tap (NOOT) beer fest came and went as fast as a keg at a frat party.  Attendees tasted from a selection of 300 beers and food from local vendors, such as Brats Y’all. Homebrewers lined up along the outer edge of the festival rousing up flavor controversy and exciting bland palates, while certified beer judges huddled with their flights of homebrews to determine winners in NOOT’s first juried competition.

On Saturday, the weather held out, and New Orleans on Tap, the city's celebration of beers was on in City Park. The event featured big brews, microbrews, homebrews, and lots of dogs befitting the LA-SPCA's cosponsorship. NoDef's Brandon Robert was on hand to capture all of the action.

Oktoberfest is almost here.

Today in New Orleans 9.28.13

For the fourth year in a row, NOLA on Tap is offering pet lovers a chance to day drink for their four-legged friends. Across the bridge, Nicholas Payton, the Hot 8 Brass Band, and more are taking to the stage for the Old Algiers RiverFest. On this day in 1868, dozens of black Americans were killed in the Opelousas Massacre. Now, more to do this Saturday.

Feeling altruistic?  Come support some great local causes.  Of course everything done in New Orleans, even philanthropy, is done with a drink.  So whether you end up with the dogs in City Park, the ex-employees of our beloved Times-Picayune at the Howlin’ Wolf, golfers at the club for Grace House or at Tip's to save Professor Longhair’s house, you are in for a good night.   

Today's Events: 10.1.11

Today, Gentilly Fest kicks off in Pontchartrain Park, New Orleans on Tap touches down in City Park, and the LPO performs Mahler’s 1st Symphony at Mahalia Jackson. But on this day before 2011, Spain ceded Louisiana to France (1800), the first steamboat to sail the Mississippi River arrived in NOLA (1811), Congress established both Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks (1890), the Ford Model T went on the market for $825, (1908), and Cartoon Network launched (1992). It’s Jimmy Carter’s Birthday (1924), E.B. White’s death (1985), World Vegetarian Day, and International Day of Older Persons. So go eat at Sweet Tomato:
