Tasting Room at The GEM

At The GEM you can stop by with the family or friends to take a load off and enjoy a pint or grab some beer to-go for your next get together.

We do not have a kitchen but have a variety of beer snacks to enjoy, delivery options, food trucks on rotation, and you are always welcome to bring your own food. Be on the look out for guest pop up kitchens from time to time.

We are open 6 days a week. We will take reservations for SMALL parties. Once the group reaches a certain size it becomes necessary to treat the gathering as a private event. . Private events can be booked by contacting thegem@waywardowlbrewing.com or calling 504-827-1646.

Please respect us and our neighbors. We are located on the edge of a residential neighborhood and have neighbors with jobs and children in school. Please be respectful when coming and going, especially closer to closing times.

Although we dearly adore furry friends, they cannot come inside the tasting room unless he/she is a service animal.


We do have a small parking lot located on the corner of Martin Luther King Blvd & Broad street. There are only a few street parking spaces on Thalia St. and they may be occupied by food trucks. Please be aware that some parking spaces may be blocked if production is underway or deliveries are happening. Our first priority is making the beer and getting it out to you fresh.
Limited bike parking available on Thalia St. near entrance.

All parking is under video surveillance. Please remember to lock your car. We are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged property.
