We were super excited last week when the folks at the Japan Society benefit to help brewers affected by this year’s earthquake brought an impromptu after-party to Jimmy’s No. 43. Luc Boivin from Dieu du Ciel (Montreal) and Brian Baird of Baird Brewing (Japan), along with some of the representatives at Shelton Brothers were hanging out and swapping tales (turns out, Jimmy loves Baird’s Angry Boy Brown Ale).
Of course, Jimmy’s No. 43 is no stranger to helping our beer brothers (and sisters) in Japan. We held a fundraiser earlier this year at Brooklyn Brewery. It was great to see another event to help these small breweries that lost everything after the tsunami hit, and it was better still to have the surprise visit from these amazing brewers. Thanks to Luc and Brian for coming over!
