I have stopped here at Stein's Market and Deli a number of times now. This is a great place to find some really nice brews! It is the only location in the metro area that I've seen carry Revelation Cat. They also have almost every Mikkeller. They seem to be one of the few places that will regularly stock high dollar brews.
The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. The selection might not be outrageously large, but almost each brew carried is at least very good.
This is most definitely a place I will frequent. They have a surprise for me each time I go (in the beer selection that is).
I can't comment on the deli, because I've never eaten there.

Stopped here for lunch. It's a short walk from the Avenue Pub. on Saint Charles Street.
As people have previously mentioned in their reviews of this place. Please be advised that they do not serve beer on the premises. Strictly to-go and take-out. Something to be said about getting an Oaked arrogant Bastard in a to=go cup. :) so, don't expect to have a Koenig's pilsner with your Tongue sandwich.
I found the sandwich board and menu slightly overwhelming. When this is the case, I always pick something from the daily specials menu. Wouldn't it be my luck that they were serving up Cuban's on the day I made my visit. My first Cuban sandwich. It was delicious. The food here is top notch, A must stop in NOLA.
While waiting for my lunch I perused the three or four dedicated coolers of beer to see what I could score for taking back to the house we were renting. I found the single to be bit bit pricey, but then again it is the big city. Seems they don't sell beer by the case here. The upside is that we did get a 10% discount of our purchase of anything more than a six pack if I can recall correctly. At any rate we found a case and a half of beer to schlep back to the house.
Six packs of Koenigs Pilsner pounders for 9.99 was the deal of the day.
Mostly American craft beer beer here, along with all the local beers. No macros, what a relief. Plenty of Stone products, along with some other West coast favorites. A fairly good selection of Belgians and some German offerings.
Go here for the food and leave here with some beer!

Stein's Market and Deli, as a deli, is a notch above the best. If I was a religious man, I would say their hot pastrami sandwich (the Sam) is a pure gift from God; the recipe hand-written by Jesus and a collaboration of Mohammed, the Buddha and Atman then handed down through the prophets and then unto the people at Stein's... Yes... It's that good!
Stein's Market and Deli, as a craft beer distributor, is definitely above average but not world class. Their employees, for the most part, enjoy beer and are knowledgeable enough to guide you through their personal favorites and recommend local hot spots. Their deli workers seem pretty friendly and willing to strike a conversation up but the manager and owner seemed a little grouchy and pressed for time. I enjoyed casually discussing beer and hops with a couple of the workers during a brief stay in New Orleans recently. Their selection includes many Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel offerings, Stone, Harpoon and the gang. Besides these basics, they offer local microbrewery NOLA draft packs (party pigs) and carry their Blonde, Brown and IPA (Hopitoulas) all for around $40 plus tax. It ends up being a full case of beer so the price isn't bad at all for fresh beer.
This is definitely a great stop if one is ever in New Orleans and wants a kick ass, world class sandwich and a decent beer to wash it down with. If you're going to crack that bottle top off, though, you can't eat at the deli. Weird, right? Grab your sandwiches to go and enjoy. Oh yeah, and tip man. Tip!

Stopped by here before heading home after a few days in NOLA. It is a narrow little deli with mostly about 3 coolers full of singles. Pretty much everything in here is singles & it's a good selection. I'm sure it's about as good of a selection as you get in Louisiana, but it isn't some crazy revelation of a great beer selection -- it's very good though. I was helped a young kid who said he wasn't an expert but could he help. I asked about their Jolly Pumpkin which they appeared to be mostly out of. He said he'd check in back. Couldn't find any, but he apparently call the manager who wanted to talk to me. Great guy who gave me some excellent suggestions for other sour beers I might want to consider. Bought some good stuff. The only unsatisfying things were: 1) I wasn't crazy about the sale of virtually everything only in singles, and 2) the checkout process took a long time.
On the otherhand, we also picked up meat, cheese, bread from the deli for a lunch at the zoo. The pastrami was unbelievable! Probably the best sliced meat I've ever had. It was an epiphany. The sopprisetto (sp?) was also great. The beer store here is good. The deli is truly world class.

I came to this place because i heard it is one of the best deli's in NOLA. as far as my opinion is concerned, its the best hot pastrami sandwich i've ever tasted. i also heard it had "a lot of beer". coming from some of my friends that told me this, it could have meant that they have a cases of natty light, miller lite, etc.
The selection is very impressive, and i've never seen such a selection at a deli. the employees don't really offer any help, but i didn't seek it either. they are also a bit grumpy, but nevertheless its definitely worth the trip.
i added some brews to the beer list, but i realized they have a website that shows everything you might need to know.

I stopped here on a beautiful afternoon while visiting New Orleans. I was hoping to purchase a beer to sip on while eating lunch here, but unfortunately you can only carry out beer here. They need a different liquor license I say!
The sandwich I had was great. Although food rating isn't an option for this place on BA, I'd recommend eating here.
They had a nice selection of bottles in a few coolers. Rogue, Jolly Pumpkin, Capital Brewery, Bear Republic, etc. They also had a variety of Belgian beers as well.
I spoke with the beer manager only for a few seconds, but he seemed knowledgeable and nice. The service from ordering to looking were good all around. This is another place that people need to visit if they are in New Orleans.

Unassuming location with the emphasis on deli-first. 80-90% of the beer is in coolers, which I imagine is a must in New Orleans year-round and makes non-refrigerated beer a little suspect in my mind.
The atmosphere is laid back to say the least, and borders on grungy, but not out of line for New Orleans. The quality of the 9 beers I bought was very good. The service was fine but nothing special -- just rung up my order like any other place. The selection was very good with an emphasis on Belgian ales and included Karmeliet, Affligem, St. Bernardus, Brasserie Dieu du Ciel, Brasserie des Rocs, Dupont. Plenty of American breweries are represented including Sierra Nevada, Moylans, Full Sail, Brooklyn, Bear Republic, and Anchor. All beers are available by mixed-6 pack with a discount. Prices were on par with expectations.
A solid beer haven in the grand scope, but my experience did not substantiate all of the platitudes on the site. That being said, I doubt there are better places in New Orleans to shop for beer.

Atmosphere - Stein's Market & Deli is located in the Magazine Street shopping district in uptown New Orleans. As the name implies, it is a market that sells an assortment of nice food and beverage products and is also a deli that sells some excellent, absolutely tasty food. Alcohol can not be consumed on the premises, but that shouldn't stop anyone who is looking for quality beer in New Orleans from stopping by (and picking up an awesome sandwich while you're at it). The place can be bustling when it's busy and laid back and relaxed during down time, so plan your trip accordingly.
Quality - The food, foodstuffs, and ingredients are all top notch, but that's not what this review is for. Fortunately, the beer is top notch too. There are a few coolers that are not set too cold for keeping some beer near servable temperatures, and there are also a few wire racks and displays to store more product. I know that some people frown upon coolers, but if you've ever been in New Orleans in the summer (which lasts about 9 months out of the year), both you and your beer will be thankful for the coolers.
Service - The service is great, both for the deli and for the beer. The deli side of things can get slammed at meal times, so if you know you're going to need some extra help with your beer perusing then you might want to plan to visit when it's not time for food. The owner really knows his stuff for both beer and food, and he's got a good staff with him.
Selection - Easily the best assortment and variety of quality beers in the state. They do a good job of ordering styles for seasons, and of keeping a mix of American craft as well as import offerings. The only thing that keeps their selection from being perfect is the limited amount of space they have to work with, but they do an excellent job with the space that they do have. If you see something you like but there is only one bottle available, ask if there is more in stock. There is additional storage on site, just not enough room to keep everything in the front.
Value - The prices are more than reasonable for the quality of the products available. The hidden value is that the owner keeps striving to bring in more and more quality products, which can only help to grow the beer culture in the region.
If you're local or just visiting, stop in for some excellent food. Walk out with some excellent beer, too. If you like beer and in you're in New Orleans, this is a place to see.

Stopped in here on my just completed trip to NOLA. Great place that is worthy of a BeerFly review.
Stein's is located in the heart of the excellent Magazine Street shopping area. There is metered street parking available and parking was not a problem. The place can be best be described as a deli that has a great selection of beer. I did not eat there, but the place was moving sandos. They have space to eat there, but all beer has to be consumed off site.
They have a few coolers of beer located on the right hand side of the store and also have some random bottles out on the floor. The selection was really good. They had lots of Sierra; Moylan's; Dieu du Ciel (including Peche Mortel); Mikkeller; Harpoon; Brooklyn; Abita; and Southern Star. They have a ton of Belgian offerings and a nice selection of Weihenstephaner. They also had posters advertising that Stone was going to be available in their shop. The prices were very reasonable. They also let you make your own six pack.
The guy working the register was a nice guy and mentioned the owner is a BA. He complimented that I had purchased a bottle of Peche Mortel.
If you hit up NOLA and want to have some good beer in your hotel fridge, make it a point to stop in at this place.

This is hands down the greatest place for lunch in New Orleans. It has incredible food that a Northeastern transplant like me can enjoy. The beer selection is great and the people who work there are super friendly and helpful and love to talk about beer. There are copies of many beer magazines to read over as you sit and enjoy one of their sandwiches, of which they have many. The Sam is a great one, pastrami with coleslaw, incredible. They also have the best bagel with lox I've had from a deli. Stein's has many hard to find food items and they may be the only place to find Tastykakes in the city. If you're looking for a good beer or mix six, some hard to find soda, meat or cheese, or a place to have a good sandwhich, Stein's deli is great. I love Stein's.
