World of Beer, Warehouse District

At the third annual Louisiana Craft Brewers Week, local brewers, bars and restaurants promote Louisiana beer and the people who make it.

  The recently opened World of Beer (300 Julia St., 504-299-3599; www.worldofbeer.com/locations/warehousedistrict) in the Warehouse District has an event every night spotlighting a different Louisiana brewery. Although World of Beer is a national chain, each location reflects the local beer culture.

  World of Beer pairs featured beers with special food items at several events, such as a chicken wing and beer deal including Tin Roof Brewing Company's new Gameday Session IPA. The bar's signature infusion tower transforms Gameday with gin-soaked grapefruit and pineapple, and the kitchen serves habanero-pineapple wing sauce to complement the infusion's flavors.

  Louisiana food and drink entrepreneur and The Next Food Network Star runner-up Jay Ducote hosts two events during the week. Ducote has worked with the Louisiana Office of Tourism on its Louisiana breweries webpage (www.libations.louisianatravel.com/breweries), and he has included all Louisiana breweries that distribute in New Orleans at the second annual Louisiana Brewers Bash on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave., 504-595-6755; www.theirishhouseneworleans.com).

  Ducote also is working with Cate Street Seafood Station (308 S. Cate St., Hammond, 985-340-3891; www.catestreet308.com) on a beer dinner on Tuesday, Sept. 15 featuring beer from Gnarly Barley Brewing Company, Chafunkta Brewing Company, Tin Roof Brewing Company, Parish Brewing Company, Bayou Teche Brewing and Covington Brewhouse. Tickets are $75 and attendees should contact the restaurant for reservations.

  Breweries present some of their most creative concoctions this week. Throughout the week, Chafunkta Brewing will pour Red Rocker, which is its Bayou Blaze Irish red ale aged with Cabo Wabo Tequila Blanco-soaked oak chips in 15-year-old barrels used by the McIlhenny Company to age Tabasco sauce.

  NOLA Brewing showcases a bourbon barrel experiment at The Avenue Pub (1732 St. Charles Ave., 504-586-9243; www.theavenuepub.com) on Tuesday, Sept. 15. The brewers aged Irish Channel Stout in barrels from George Dickel Tennessee Whisky, Four Roses Bourbon and Wild Turkey Bourbon.

  Bayou Teche serves unique beers at events all week long, including Knott's Berry Beer, which is a French-style ale aged for three months with blackberries in white wine barrels. Also available in very limited quantities is Strawberry Alarm Hop, a strawberry-habanero IPA brewed specifically for Louisiana Craft Brewers Week.

  Local brewpubs also are participating in beer week. They include Crescent City Brewhouse (527 Decatur St., 504-522-0571; www.crescentcitybrewhouse.com), Old Rail Brewing Company (639 Girod St., Mandeville, 985-612-1828; www.oldrailbrewery.com), nanobrewery Courtyard Brewery (1020 Erato St., www.courtyardbrewing.com) and the brand new Second Line Brewing (433 N. Bernadotte St., 504-248-8979; www.secondlinebrewing.com), which opens its beer garden from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
