Freret Beer Room is a gastropub that aims to please all the drinkers and all the eaters. Beer geeks, wine snobs, cocktail guys. Meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten lovers and gluten haters. Just know that while our selection may not be as large as some other guys, ours is carefully curated so that we can be sure to please whomever comes to hang out with us.


Eli Gay opened Freret Beer Room in 2016 to present exceptional craft beer alongside delicious comfort food. He is a Certified Cicerone® with a wine problem and thinks beer and cheese is the best food and beverage combination of all time. He wants Freret Beer Room to be a neighborhood favorite for gatherings of friends and family; a place to enjoy the good things we all have around us with those we love.
