It’s been a fabulous #JulyGoodBeerMonth as we played host to many events including last week’s Eighth Annual Good Beer Seal Awards. As one of the founding bars of the Good Beer Seal, we’re proud to be part of the great craft beer culture in NYC and the celebration of good beer every July.
And the month’s not over yet! Tonight (July 26th) we’ll be having a low-key meet-and-greet with St. Louis Brewery’s Tom Schlafly. We’ll have several of the mid-west brewers beers available, including brews perfect for these hot days:
- Grapefruit IPA (on draught)
- Kolsch (draught)
- Hop Trial (in bottles)
Of course, we’ll have many more beers, ciders and cocktails to cool you down, so drop by and say hello to Tom.
Our final event for July Good Beer Month will be a very cool simultap of Slim Picken’s Passionfruit Cider, Make Momma Proud. The brainchild of Cigar City’s Todd Strauss, this cider is made from Scandinavian apples and Chilean passionfruit and will be tapped simultaneously at seven bars in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn on Friday (July 29th).
The fireworks were awesome and we’re deep in to summer and it’s July Good Beer Month in NYC! We’re proud to be celebrating the month where great beer makers, craft beer, the bars that serve them up and the many industry professionals that make NYC (and NY State) an awesome place to be part of the brew scene.
This month we’ll have several cool events – and don’t forget that we’ll be celebrating the Summer of Gose all month long, as well – including a Cicerone* Appreciation night on Tuesday, July 12th, and a special beer dinner featuring a menu from Crimson & Sparrow paired with Hudson Valley beers on Monday, July 18th.
*The Cicerone program is part of the “beerducation” movement, where industry professionals earn various levels of certification (similar to being a Sommelier in the wine world). We’re going to be hanging out with a diverse group of Cicerones (of all levels) as they mingle and make beer recommendations. This public event will give you a chance to learn more about great craft beer or test your beer knowledge against that of certified professionals.
Be sure to join us for our new summer menu and special beers all month long (and, of course, we’ll still have our custom cocktails, wine, spirits and cider).
We’ll see you soon for July Good Beer Month!
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.
