On Saturday, Aug. 23, the House of Blues hosts a new beer and music event called Brewsiana, featuring beer from local breweries NOLA Brewing, Parish Brewing Co., Gnarly Barley Brewing Co., Bayou Teche Biere, Tin Roof Brewing Co., Chafunkta Brewing Co. and Covington Brewhouse. Each brewer will offer three beers at the event.

New Orleans House of Blues General Manager Robert Rizzuto says Brewsiana will be an annual event and stems from a national House of Blues initiative to feature craft beer.

“The consumer is changing with the times and is actively seeking out craft beer now,” Rizzuto says.

Rizzuto worked with Donn Lacoste of LA Craft Beer, the craft beer arm of Southern Eagle distributors, to organize the event and reach out to breweries. They tasted and selected beers from each brewery to serve at the event.

Patrons pay $12 for the concert featuring Colin Lake, Brass Bed, Hazy Ray, The Scorseses, The Wooden Wings and Kelly Love Jones. To sample beers, guests must buy a wristband good for a set number of three-ounce samples: $15 for seven samples or $35 for 21 samples. 

Food pairings also are available with some beers; food tickets are $3 each and items cost one to three tickets.

Attendees must be at least 21-years-old to enter. The event begins at 7 p.m. and occupies the main stage, the restaurant and Voodoo Garden. There's information and advance ticket sales available at the event webpage.
