Crescent City Brewhouse Restaurant Review

: Crescent City Brewhouse’s rather ambitious menu is somewhat unexpected for a French Quarter brewpub. Robust flavors rule, enabling such dishes as redfish Pontchartrain (topped with fried soft-shell crab) and jumbo shrimp stuffed with Louisiana crab meat and jalapeños. Bavarian-born brewmaster Wolf Koehler's vats take up a good part of the two floors; he produces at least four beers on a given day, including a fine pilsner and a semi-sweet weissbeer that's ideal for the tropical climate. Try Koehler's German sausage platter with sauerkraut and potatoes with a full-bodied dark Black Forest beer --- or two. Desserts are made in house; consider the almond cup. The owner has a penchant for local art and features rotating exhibitions throughout the establishment.

Worst Beer In New Orleans
by nolabeerpeople on Thu Oct 16, 2014 1:35 pm
I have not had their food, so I can not speak to its quality, but as far as beer goes CCBH is one of the worst brewpubs I have ever been to.

I tried a flight of all of the beers on tap. The Pilsner had a lot of DMS off flavor, the Hefe was okay, the "Dark Horse" was thin, the "Red Stallion" tasted like it was being served through dirty beer lines, and the seasonal offering tasted like Butaric commonly described as a baby puke flavor in beer circles.

the beers were pouring with way to much head, and I saw a server use their finger to wipe the head off the top of one beer.
