Jimmy’s No. 43 has always been a place that visitors to NYC like to check out (or Orphans & Expats, when it comes to our Christmas-Day lunch!), so we love it when new folks come to town. This evening, we’ll be chatting with fermentor Eli Cayer of Urban Farm Fermentory in Portland, Maine. Eli is doing very cool things with mead and wild-fermented ciders (not to mention that mysterious concoction known as Kombucha). He’ll be dropping by for a meet-and-greet at the bar.
Then on Saturday, we’re bringing back the cask! We’ll have an amazing beer from England: J.W. Lees Harvest Ale. This classic English-style Barleywine (weighing in at a whopping 11.5% ABV) is brewed only once a year with the new harvest’s fresh floor malted Maris Otter malts and the classic English East Kent Goldings hops . Sure, we know it’s going to be a warmer-than-usual 12-12, but we’re still digging this beer and hope you’ll drop by to try it.
And don’t forget, we have New Year’s Eve packages and a party room available for your private celebrate (inquire here). We’re going out with a bang this 2015 (in the non-building exploding sense!), and we look forward to seeing friends both near and far in the closing weeks heading into 2016.
