Now that summer vacations are over, it’s time for some belt tightening. But it’s hard to give up one of the best things in life: beer. Here are a few places around town where beer is available at a discount or free.
The recently opened World of Beer
in the Warehouse District (324 Julia St., 504-299-3599) has two regular happy hours featuring $4 pints and $5 snacks.
