New Orleans is hopping when it comes to the craft brewing scene. All these local breweries are vying for your attention and they are throwing in movies to give you just another reason to drop in throughout the summer. Across the city, breweries are opening their doors and pulling down the screen for outdoor screenings of films, giving people a chill spot on hot summer’s evening.

And because everyone enjoy movies and brews (brewvies), here are four places to kick up your feet, and throw back a beer on a weeknight.

  1. Wayward Owl Brewing Company

    Wayward Owl shows movies at its brewery in the old Gem Theater about once a month and it’s always worth the wait. You can get cozy on the couches and even some theater chairs behind the benches as you take in a fun classic. A local pop-up provides the food during the brewvie events here.
