Pints for the pets, part II

New Orleans on tap

Companionable, attentive and incapable of repeating any foolishness you might spout as the evening ticks on, a dog can make an ideal drinking buddy. Alas, we can’t always bring our dogs out with us for a night on the town. But at an event coming up this Saturday, we can all hoist a few cold ones in their honor, and for the benefit of the dogs, cats, horses and other local animals in need of care.

The New Orleans on Tap Beer Festival returns to City Park on Nov. 10, a new date after it was rained out from its originally-planned September slot. It’s from noon to 5 p.m.

Organized by the local Bulldog taverns and the Louisiana SCPA, which is its beneficiary, and sponsored by Abita Brewing, the event features some 200 beers poured at booths arrayed around the Boathouse at City Park’s Big Lake.

Admission is free and guests pay as they go, buying tickets for samples of the various beers. The selection is impressive and ranges from global brands to local offerings from up-and-coming microbreweries, including Cajun Fire Brewing, Chafunkta Brewing, Gnarly Barley and Mudbug Brewery.

Local bands will perform and local restaurants selling food will include the Velvet Cactus, the Crescent Pie & Sausage Co., Crepes a la Cart and, naturally, Dat Dog.

And if you need an attentive listener as you parse the finer points of all these brews, remember that well-behaved dogs are welcome at the event too. Details are here.
