August Is Sour Beer Month!

Among the trends in American craft beer, the rise of wild beers is a new trend that we’re happy to embrace at Jimmy’s No. 43. In fact, we’ll be using the month of August to feature sour, wild yeast, and other naturally fermented beers from breweries both local and far-flung. The tradition runs deep—from lambics and Flemish sours in Belgium, Gose and Berliner weisse in Germany, to new experimental brews in the USA. Our Tuesday Tastings will all feature sour beers curated by some of our favorite (Shelton Brothers, B. United, Union) beer distributors, with Thursday Tap leaning on rare kegs of sour beers, all culminating in our August 16th B. United Sour Beer & Vegetarian Nonsense Beer Dinner. This event (featuring former Jimmy’s No. 43 Chef Jessica Wilson) will pair up five extremely high end sour beers with a great vegetarian menu.

If you’ve been paying attention to the local beer scene, you may have tried some of Jeff O’Neill’s Peekskill brews that emulate Belgian-style wild beers. Dogfish Head Pastina Peche is another recent entry into these refreshing summertime beers.

Look for specials throughout the month, including beers from Belgium, Germany, Italy and the USA, among others.
