Garret Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery coming to New Orleans...

Thanks for Dustin Davis for bringing this article from NOLA.com to my attention!

Now that the World Cup is over it's time to get back to some local beer events... and here is an exceptional one in New Orleans.  The head brewer from Brooklyn Brewery (which can be found in South Louisiana these days) will be in New Orleans July 23, 24, and 25 to host a series of beer tasting events!  That Friday night he will be at The Avenue Pub on Magazine for a tasting of 5 rare and vintage Brooklyn beers, and the bar will have several other offerings on tap.  It's only $12 for the tasting, so I'm certainly going to try to attend and I encourage others to as well!

Saturday will be the event the food and beer lovers want to attend... a six-course dinner paired with six beers at Boucherie, which from all I've heard is a fantastic restaurant!  I've been to the accompanying Couchon restaurant and was extremely pleased with the food.  And the fact that they had the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout available!  The cost is $100 all included, and although I doubt I'll be able to attend, it should be a great meal and experience.

I hope to see some beer loving friends in NOLA that Friday night... and enjoy!
