Oyster Night With Lagunitas

One of the great things about most craft beer lovers is they just really like to have fun. We host many events every month at Jimmy’s No. 43, and the overwhelming majority are really laid back. We invite brewers to join us, to mix and mingle with both first-timers and regulars. There’s no price for admission (you pay as you go), and it’s a chance to make new friends, even if only for a night. Continue reading Oyster Night With Lagunitas

Cheers to Ray!

As many of you are aware, we lost a great friend this week. Ray Deter, co-founder of The Good Beer Seal and Jimmy’s partner in crime over at Beer Sessions Radio, was struck by a car and killed while riding his bike. Ray is beloved by so many beer lovers that frequented his d.b.a. bars (among other establishments). Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family as they grieve. We hope everyone who knew Ray will raise a glass in his honor. The Times wrote up a nice obit. You can read it here.

Best of Ray Deter on HRN.
