We made it through the heat of July and August is looking mighty fine thus far as we turn our focus back to some of our favorite summer libations. This week, we’ll be welcoming Urban Farm Fermentory’s Eli Cayer, maker of ciDAH. On Friday (August 5th), we’ll be tapping a keg of his ciDAH and hanging with Eli from 5PM on.
And speaking of cider, there’s still time to get tickets to this Saturday’s CiderFeast, which we are co-producing and which features 30+ ciders poured by more than a dozen of our favorite cider makers. Expected to be in attendance are:
- Hudson Valley Farmhouse Cider – NY
- Big Apple Cider – NY
- Shacksbury – VT
- Original Sin – NY
- Austin Eastciders – TX
- E. Z. Orchards – OR
- Aspall – UK
- Ciders of Spain – Spain
- WineSellers LTD, Importers – Spain/France/UK
- Virtue – MI
- Ciderboys – WI
- Wolfer – NY
- Farnum Hill – NH
You can get tickets for CiderFeast (being held at East River Park at 23rd Street on the Manhattan waterfront) here.
Back at home, we’ll be freshening up our Summer of Gose menu and offering a select few seats to Cicerone v. Cicerone on Wednesday, August 17th (also a certain proprietor’s birthday!). You’ll get six beers paired to three courses by two Certified Cicerones. Only 20 seats available for this rare beer and food pairing.
And Jimmy’s No. 43 is still the launchpad for many new brewers and cider makers coming into the city. We recently launched Kings County Brewers Collective (from Bushwick, Brooklyn); we still have their sessionable Saison, Sandcastles, available on draught. Check out our full (and rotating) beer and cider list here.
