Brewery

Bywater Brew Pub is a full-scale brewery, bar and restaurant serving up a unique menu of Vietnamese-Cajun/Creole-Gastropub fare, alongside a dozen taps of house-brewed beers.

Chef Anh Luu was born and raised in the Vietnamese community of New Orleans East. She honed her skills and unique style of cooking for 10 years at her Portland, OR restaurant, before returning home in 2020 to launch BBP’s food program.

Our BrewMaster, Sonny Day, is brewing the tastiest craft beers in town. Our twelve taps showcase a broad range of styles: from traditional pilsners, to unique IPA's, to roasty porters, and a revolving door of seasonal brews.

Our space features work from local artists, many of whose studios are located right upstairs- on the second floor of a converted historic bottling factory. Located on Royal St. @ Montegut St. in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans, we love catering to our special local community, while welcoming visitors from near and far.

    The menu is small but packed with flavor. Love the vegan Phoritto and I'm not even vegan. The brussell sprouts are A+ too. Plus you can get a flight of beers with your meal. That isn't something I've seen. Usually breweries just have food trucks. So this is an bonus. They have both indoor and outdoor seating.

    This place is fun, artsy and fits right in with neighborhood. The food is fabulous - AsianCajun with a fresh twist. I’ve been several times and nothing on the menu disappoints. The staff is friendly, efficient but not hovering. They have terrific craft beer, too. Great place for a date night or a group of friends getting together for trivia.
