First things first, this is a deli and once you enter this place you're reminded of that. Come hungry and have a sandwich before or after you shop. You won't be disappointed... The best I've had in a while.
There are only 2 aisles in this store and if you go during a busy time it could get annoying trying to make your way around. Pick any beers from the coolers or the shelves. They'll even search the back for more of a specific type beer. Imports, domestics and rarities are amazingly on the shelves. This is a place worth checking out when you're in town.
Oh and if you pay cash you do get a 10% discount, so come with cash in hand ;-)

Steins is permeated by the smell of some really good food. Didnt partake as I had stuffed myself at Deannies. Seriously stuffed! The place was crowded and very busy. The beer shelves are a bit cramped but crammed with good beers. Nice selection of Mikellor and several others. I purchased a couple Fantome beers I havent seen anywhere else. The staff was attentive, efficient and somewhat knowledgeable about the products available. All in all a good stop. I will definately stop at Steins next time I am in town and I will go there hungry.

As a huge fan of Chiocca's in Richmond, Virginia, I immediately got the same type of deli aromas, of course, walking into Stein's, and was immediately taken back. Had my wife and I not had lunch right before we walked in, we would've gotten sandwiches, but that's on our list for next time we're in the area.
I was surprised mostly by the Belgian selection at Stein's -- a lot of what I hoped would be there, upon knowing they had so many Belgians, were indeed there. Prices are definitely reasonable. And now living in New York, they had a lot of domestic brews represented from a lot of states.
It's a little tight as far as room goes, but that adds to the singularity of the place -- most of the beer's on the right side of the store, whereas all the food and deli items and ordering is on the left.
We weren't there long, but again, I'd definitely like to go back. I picked up a bomber from Pike Brewing in Seattle, and we went on our way. Next time, I'm sure we'll stay a little longer.

Unique storefront in the Garden District. Loved the deli portion of the store, very interesting and old-fashioned. Likewise the blasting indoor air conditioner. Stand in front of that in the Louisiana humidity! The beer and drinks portion of the store is pretty cramped, a little difficult to move around.
The quality and selection for this area and the size of the store is simply mind-blowing. Someone works very hard to keep rarities, imports, and long-distance imports and craft beers in stock. I was hugely impressed with the overall quality of Stein's beer selection, and that would be true in Louisiana or any other state I have visited (California included).
No one helped me with my beer purchase, but my traveling companions were greeted by an amiable staff at the deli. While the selection of beers is pretty terrific, you definitely pay for what you get. Normal-to-high prices on rare beers = a lot of money on the beer counter! Bottom line, this is the store in New Orleans. Make a trip out of your way to get here.

I hit this place when I was in New Olreans on a business trip for lunch, and to grab some bottles to bring home with me. The sandwich I got from the deli was fantastic, made fresh by hand and the folks working there were really nice. The craft brew bottle selection was decent if not really good for the area since it's not too far from the French Quarter / downtown area. They had a variety of beers from Stone, Abita of course, and some others that I can't remember now. Finally the last twenty five words to hit 500.

Steins is a classic. This place is first and foremost a deli and the smell of a great deli happily greets you as you walk in. There is no drinking in the building though. This place has a large variety of beers--arguably the best in the city. I saw stuff from St. Arnolds and several Belgians that I had not seen anywhere else. Lots of great local beers here. Prices are also the best I have seen. $1.30 for a single of Abita. Yes they sell singles which is a big plus. If you ask someone in the store, they will gladly give you recommendations. Overall I would certainly come back if I was in the area. The only beer store in New Orleans that I discovered that comes close to this is Sidneys.

drove down from mississippi today with 2 friends to check it out and stock up on brew. upon entry, the AMAZING smell of the deli preparations was overwhelming. but we didn't come to eat, LOL. it was not the largest selection i've seen, but it was quite extensive and impressive for this area. the selection covered pretty much all beer styles. there was a surprisingly large selection of saisons, krieks, lambics, and farmhouse style ales. they had nearly an entire cooler full of various trappist and belgian offerings, as well as several bavarian style wheats, pilsners, doppelbocks, and eisbocks. there were of course the obligatory local such as abita, nola, heiner brau, and lazy magnolia. there was way more than i can remember, but many of the big names they carry were: stone, urthel, de ranke, unibroue, mikkeller, brew dog, harpoon, flying dog, full sail, fantome, paulaner, brooklyn, samuel smith, sammichlaus, corsendonk, piraat, he'brew, achel, ufo, st. bernardus, duvel, chimay, orval, westmalle, sierra nevada, and plenty more. when we were checking out, i noticed they even had a few bottles of tactical nuclear penguin and sink the bismark (could not afford them, LOL). i mainly studied the belgian style offerings, but there was literally some of everything. stein's has the best and most diverse inventory that i have found in the area.
as for service, it was pretty good. one guy quit stocking for about an hour while we ran around deciding what we were going to buy. he even got us several empty boxes to carry our pickings in. the prices were about average. when we went to check out, however, the cashier gave us a cash discount because we were buying close to $400 worth of brew. overall, i am very pleased with the visit and i will definately be a return customer. if you are in the area looking for some good brew, this is the place you're looking for.

i had been emailing Dan @ Steins in the preceding weeks as i was in NOLA for a weekend vacation from Houston. those of you that know the TABC know we have really screwed up beer dist in texas. that said, my #1 quest was to p/up some Rocheforts (not avail in texas). Dan assured me he'd have them on hold and verified some other wants as well.
i bought the beers earlier today and also walked out w/some stone's (double bastard and vert 10) that are not avail in texas as well. a great down to earth dude that i will be visiting again in 2011. if your in NOLA and want a great selection of beers from all over the world, head to Steins.

The best service I have received from ANY establishment I have ever visited. I am a resident of East Texas and cannot find a place here that sells Corsendonk. When I was in New Orleans over the Thanksgiving holiday I called Stein's Market and Deli to see if they had the beer there. A very pleasant gentleman named Dan aswered the phone and told me that he did not have the beer but he would order it for me and have it at the store the next day. I ordered a case of the beer and Dan pulled through dispite the kaos of his tight schedule. When I went to pick up the beer I met Dan at the store where I was offered a tour of the vast selections of beer he had in the store room where he offered to split the case with my choice of beer he had at the store. It was an amazing and overwhelming experience. The whole time as I was pondering over the beer there was to choose from, Dan was appologising for not being able to give me the quality of service I deserve due to the fact it was just about lunch time and the Deli was flooded with customers. (Poor service? What ever Dan!) BTW Dan's the owner and he knows his beer. P.S. Dan if you ever read this DRINK THAT SCULPIN.

Very nice local deli in the Garden District. The food is good and the selection and value are reasonable. I purchased a mixed six pack of 3 Weihenstephaner Korbinian, 2 Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock and 1 Rochefort 8 for about 22$. Be aware that there is no consumption of alcohol on the premises. All beer is to go only. This means no eating the awesome sandwich you just ordered and having a good brew with it unless you are taking it home to consume. Service was quick on a weekday at lunchtime.
