House of Blues Brewsiana Fest w/Valerie Sassyfras/T-Rex 7:45pm-8:15pm!
The House of Blues will be welcoming in thirsty patrons on the evening of August 25 at 6 p.m. for the fifth annual Brewsiana Craft Beer and Music Festival. For beer aficionados, the music venue will be hosting a tasting from some of the best breweries throughout the state. For anyone familiar with the microcosm of brewhouses on Tchoupitoulas, familiar faces include Port Orleans, Urban South, and NOLA Brewing. As if three breweries weren’t enough, the House of Blues is packing in 14 more breweries, including Gnarly Barley, Second Line, Crying Eagle, Dixie, and Parish Brewing Company. But wait, there’s still more! Here’s your chance to not only sample tried-and-true craft concoctions, but delicious brews like Peanut Butter Korova Milk Porter, Offshore Stout, and Maison Blanc. Another surprise includes indulging in exclusive offerings that aren’t available at retail locations by the likes of Parleaux Beer Lab, Broad Street Cider and Ale, and Old Rail Brewing Company.
For $45 you can have all the drinks you want. They’re offering a $20 option as well, if you’re just there for a few sips, some tasty food, and the great entertainment (or if you’ve been designated to be the driver for your beer buddies).
You can happily give those tastebuds a break for a few minutes (they’ll thank you). After all, we know you want to savor all of those craft-beer perfections. Instead, you can jump in the pit for a good time dancing, singing, or just listening to bluesy singles by the Jamey St. Pierre Band, 80s hits from Werewolf, afrobeat tunes by Kumasi, Valerie Sassyfras’s intergalactic melodies, indie rock jams by Mighty Brother, beats by DJ T-Bone, or rock offerings from Nebula Rosa. Once your ears are satisfied and ringing, stay for a mesmerizing performance by the city’s own Queen of Burlesque, Elle Dorado, or the very-much-still-alive Michael Jackson . . . of New Orleans.
