Remember last year’s Summer of Gose? We’re happy to be bringing back all our summertime favorites, celebrating tart, sour, refreshing and crisp beverages that are perfect for when the temperatures rise.
Among our featured beers this week are:
- Troublesome Brewing’s Off-Color Gose
- Leipsiger Gose
- Westbrook Gose (in cans)
Plus, this Saturday, we’ll be grilling on Manhattan’s waterfront at Little Big BBQ (and Jimmy’s will be open for regular business on Saturday, as well). On Monday (June 20th) we’ll be throwing a party for Heritage Radio Network and Beer Sessions Radio, as we focus on beers of the Hudson Valley (come by Monday evening after 6PM to drink with radio hosts and the brewers we’ll be featuring on the “New Primitives” episode of Beer Sessions Radio). And in just over a week (on Sunday, June 26th), we welcome back one of our favorite cider makers, Eleanor Leger of Eden Ice Ciders, for a cider talk with meet and greet.
While it seemed to take forever, summer is at last on the horizon as we head into Memorial Day weekend. We’ll be grilling outdoors at CookOut NYC’s Food Party on the Pier (tickets and info here), but Jimmy’s No. 43 will be open all weekend offering up cool libations, great eats (like our Best Burger), and our cool caverns for lovers of beer, cider, wine and spirits. We’ll also be hosting Plan Bee Farm Brewery on Sunday afternoon, so be sure to drop in and meet the brewer.
And if spirits are your favorite libation, be sure to grab a ticket to next Wednesday’s (6/1) Empire State Spirits of Summer with author Brad Japhe, who will be discussing the NY State spirits scene with pours from 10+ spirits paired with small plates from our kitchen.
The following Wednesday (6/8), we are very excited to be a pop-up location for Brewed Food, a collective “dedicated to pushing the boundaries of the beer and food world” who will be working with our own chef and bringing in guest chefs from Brooklyn Brewery and New Belgium for a beer and food pairing dinner that is out of this world (full menu and ticket link here).
Be sure to keep up with all our events in June, by visiting our calendar page, and we hope to see you soon as we beat the heat at Jimmy’s No. 43!
We’re using the unseasonably chilly weather as an excuse to break out a very special keg that has aged extremely well and we’re tapping with bittersweet pleasure. Our Finest Regards is a Barleywine from Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, a great gypsy brewery that closed shop last year. Almost none of their beers remains on the market, so this is your chance to try this incredibly nuanced “big” beer (11% ABV) on draught.
What is a barley wine? It’s a strong ale, originally an English style that can age well. “Barley wine” is a term coined for this ale, which is stronger like a wine, but it’s not a wine. A lot of breweries make a barley wine, including Sierra Nevada, and many beer collectors age barley wines to bring out more flavor notes. We could have held this keg for another 6-12 months of aging, but with the slight chill (okay, it’s really cold for mid-May) we thought it was time to tap it.
And if you’re a movie buff, then you know that the Cannes Film Festival is currently taking place. What you may not know is that our Backroom was used as a location in a new film premiering there. Our Backroom is available for film shoots, private parties, corporate events, art spaces and more. For rental inquires, email us
