Named for the jazzy New Orleans tradition of brass bands marching in second line parades, this brewery in Mid-City is just as upbeat and community-oriented as those very parades, offering movie nights, tours, a beer garden with food trucks, and, of course, expertly crafted beers. The flagship brew lineup has a handful of ales and an IPA, all of which are full-bodied and plenty hoppy, plus small batch favorites like the Cease to Love, a bourbon barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout. Parents, rejoice: your kids and dogs are welcome in the spacious beer garden, too.
Just a short walk from the streetcars on Canal Street, Second Line Brewing offers a family and pet-friendly beer garden where you can sample a variety of both large-batch beers or a small-batch series that’s only available from Second Line’s taproom. The venue was established in 2014 by a group of friends and it's a proud woman-, veteran-, and minority-owned business offering brewery tours, a rotating diary of food trucks, and trivia nights on Mondays and Wednesdays.
