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.

Beer to Go


Due to the lack of glass recycling in NOLA we offer CrOWLers of our draft beer to go. CrOWLers are 32oz cans intended for one time use as with any beer we put in cans, we do not re-fill any CrOWLers, including twist tops. Prices for specialty fills may vary.


We offer two of our standard beers in 6-packs of 12oz cans to-go. As we grow more specialty cans will become available in the tasting room beginning November of 2017. These new specialty canned beers will range in style and may have certain purchase limits per customer based on production availability.


We do not sell glass growlers but you are free to bring one in. We will fill your clean 32oz or 64oz growlers. We we will not fill stinky or dirty growlers. Please bring in a clean and dry growler and cap. Prices for specialty fills may vary.


We currently offer kegs to go at the tasting room. Typically all 5 of our year round beers are available and at random┬árare birds will also be for sale. Availability changes daily. Please call the tasting room or reference the “kegs to go” menu at the tasting room for current offerings. All kegs and party taps require a deposit and must be returned within 120 days to receive that deposit back.

We are a family friendly business and this includes your furry family members. We do allow well behaved dogs in the tasting room as long as they are kept on a leash at all times.


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.
