Craft Culture



Private food and beverage experiences and engaging workshops.

Street cars. Oak trees. Brass bands. These are the sights and sounds of New Orleans.


But we both know you’re not here for the sights or sounds. You’re here for the tastes. And most of all, you’re here for the unique and authentic drinks that make this city one of a kind.


Whatever brings you our way, CRAFT CULTURE can design a high concept, top quality, personalized experience that serves you the best beer Louisiana has to offer—without effort, without fuss, and without gulping down your entire day. 


Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties | Birthdays | Frat and Sorority Trips | Other Events


This is no pot of gumbo. A scheduled fifteen minute consultation is all it takes for Certified Cicerone® Karl S. Hartdegen to book your reservation and get started selecting brews that deliver exactly what you’re looking for.


Whether that’s a 60 minute pregame or a 3 hour guided tasting, you’ll enjoy access to the private cellar at one of the top beer bars in the country as Karl pours you some of the best beers from the region and beyond.  Afterwards, feel free to drink and mingle on an iconic balcony overlooking St. Charles Avenue and its streetcar line. 


And for those who want to dive deeper, Karl offers group workshops that take you far beyond the bayou. Past offerings include pairing beer with cheese, sampling the work of female brewers, surveying the hops of the world—even finding the perfect food for your favorite cheap beer. We constantly update our schedule of classes and are always excited to hear your ideas for new offerings.
