#99. New Orleans

A major U.S. port along the Mississippi River is New Orleans, which is also located along the Gulf of Mexico. The city’s tourism and convention industry is worth about $5 billion annually, and one of the biggest attractions in New Orleans is its annual Mardi Gras festival. While primarily known for its food and music, New Orleans brews should not be overlooked. About a half-dozen breweries are prospering, including NOLA Brewing Co. that features our pick, an Irish Channel Stout.
