Check Out Our Beer Gallery: New Brews and Label Art

walloffoam_kelsoWe’re featuring some great NYC brewers on tap and on our walls, thanks to our latest art installation from Ann V. Reilly called “Wall of Foam.” You can enjoy local beers while checking out the local breweries’ label art. We have everything from KelSo to Brooklyn Brewery to Barrier and Evil Twin logos hanging throughout the restaurant. We always like to support local and emerging artists, so when Ann told us she was interested in assembling the great label art into an installation, we were thrilled to have these quality portraits adorn our walls. Be sure to see which artists have created the label art (or see if you can tell your Daniel Birch from your Milton Glaser!).

walloffoam_bigaliceAnd speaking of local beers, we have quite a few on tap, including favorites from:

  • Industrial Arts
  • Interboro
  • KCBC
  • Strong Rope

So, be sure to drop by soon and enjoy some great local brews… with beer art, too!

Giving Thanks for Fall Foods, Great IPAs

img_4640We knew that summer couldn’t last forever, and after the warm fall we’re welcoming back crisper temperatures and giving thanks for the bounty of the fall harvest that we see whenever we head up to the Greenmarket or take deliveries from regional farms to stock the kitchen. We’ve added a couple of dishes to the menu that are sure to please, including Pumpkin Soup (with Long Island pumpkins from Invincible Summer Farm) and a Lasagna made with pork from Flying Pigs Farm and beef sourced from Fleisher’s Craft Butchery (their custom ground grassfed beef burger is still on the menu, too!). And of course we’re back with Cheesy Fridays with Bobolink Farms (drop by for a drink or two and sample some of Jonathan White’s famous cheese).

Of course, we always have a great selection of ciders, beers and spirits to wash it all down. Some of our favorites this fall:

  • Ciders from Farnum Hill and Blackduck Cidery
  • Bourbon from Black Dirt, whiskey from Van Brunt Stillhouse and gin from Barnhill (VT)
  • Great IPAs from Industrial Arts, Other Half, Threes and Barrier Brewing

So pull out the scarf and gloves and join us in giving thanks this week at Jimmy’s No. 43!
