Going to the … Breweries + Movies = Brewvies

‘Let’s all go to the lobby and get ourselves a treat!’

New Orleans is hopping when it comes to the craft brewing scene. All these local breweries are vying for your attention and they are throwing in movies to give you just another reason to drop in throughout the summer. Across the city, breweries are opening their doors and pulling down the screen for outdoor screenings of films, giving people a chill spot on hot summer’s evening.

And because everyone enjoy movies and brews (brewvies), here are four places to kick up your feet, and throw back a beer on a weeknight.
