Dog Days Are Here: Summer of Gose Dinner with Shelton Brothers

SUMMERofGOSEHave you heard? It’s the Summer of Gose (per the NY Times), and we’re happy to be welcoming back some of our favorite friends for a Summer of Gose three-course pairing menu featuring new items from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43. Taking place on Tuesday, August 11th, at 7 p.m., the summer of Gose will offer both vegetarian and meat-lovers items from our Filipino-Thai fusion menu and will offer a preview for this fall’s new food items.

This is a very limited event; we’ll only have 20 tickets (available here) for the public (and the bar will be open for all who want to drink/dine a la carte). Joining us will be Joel Shelton of Shelton Brothers Imports.

Featured beers for the event will include (subject to availability):

  • Ritterguts Gose (draught)
  • Hors Série Gose – Les Trois Mousquetaires (draught)
  • To-ol Gose (in bottle)

And we hope to have new Summer of Gose T-shirts for sale soon (see the very cool logo above). You can pre-order yours with a $25 PayPal purchase from our store (note T-shirt and size – unisex – in the comments; T-shirts must be picked up at Jimmy’s No. 43… sorry, no shipping).

Now you can drink and dress fashionably at Jimmy’s No. 43 during the Summer of Gose!

If you happened upon today’s New York Times, you saw none other than our head bartender on the front of the food section! What’s the news that’s fit to print? Gose! It’s a great summertime brew and we’re happy to be featured in the Times as a go-to place to find Gose beers. Made from an ancient German style of beer, these somewhat sour, often salty beers pair well with food and are going to be featured for the rest of the summer in both bottles/cans and on draught. Our rotating line-up will include (while supplies last):

  • Ritterguts Gose
  • Sixpoint’s Jammer
  • The Pineus Gose from Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof (just ask for the “Goose Penis”)
  • Westbrook’s Gose
  • Hitachino Nest’s Anbai Ale from Kiuchi Brewery (careful with this one; unlike most Gose beers, it has a higher ABV of 7.0%)
  • Freigeist Rhubarb Gose
  • Leipziger Gose
  • Off Color’s Troublesome

On Tuesday, August 11th, we’ll be pairing some of these Gose beers with a special family-style dinner (both meat and vegetarian options) from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 co-hosted with friends from Shelton Brothers (pictured above). You can get tickets to this beer pairing dinner here, and you’ll learn all about this great beer, its origins and how to pair with various dishes.

And stay tuned: We’ll have Summer of Gose T-shirts on sale soon!

First course – an array of appetizers from the new Thai-Filipino influenced menu from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 paired with Angel’s Envy (exact whiskey TBA)

Second course – A whole “Lechon” roast pig and sides paired with McKenzie’s (exact whiskey TBA)

Third course – Cheese plate paired with Harvest (Hudson Valley) Single Malt scotch-style whisky

And maybe a few surprise sips along the way!

The Village Voice recently published a great article on the state of New York State whiskeys, and this is your chance to learn all about (or even more about) the nuances of whiskey, including recognizing port finish, the latest trend in artisan spirits, and the history of Angel’s Envy (where DID that name come from?).

Tickets on sale here.
