This week we have a very exciting Thursday Tap™: The Manhattan debut of new Queens brewer Rockaway Brewing Company’s ESB. Brewers Marcus Burnett and Ethan Long have been working on creating three great beers—a Summer Ale, an ESB and a Kölsch—that they hand deliver (well, bike deliver) around their Hunters Point neighborhood, and now they’re premiering their ESB this Thursday at Jimmy’s No. 43.
Marcus should be around to introduce patrons to his beer, so if you’re at the Thursday Tap™ be on the lookout for him. In addition, Rockaway Brewing is going to be one of the craft beer makers that will be at the September 8th Barrels & Kegs: A Rockaway Beach Beer Event. Come celebrate the tradition of surfing at Rockaway Beach and the amazing concessions along the Boardwalk.
Jimmy’s No. 43 will help staff three concessions areas (one at 86th, another at 96th and the third at 106th). You can buy a ticket, redeem it at any concession for a wristband, cup and punch card, then travel at your leisure along the boardwalk, taking in great food from purveyors such as Rockaway Taco, Caracas Arepa and Rippers, among many others. Your punch card gets you 20 4-oz pours from an amazing line up of breweries. In addition to Rockaway Brewing, brewers at the concessions will include: Sixpoint, Barrier, Brooklyn, Greenport Harbor, Kelso, Coney Island/Shmaltz, Blue Point, Founders, Long Ireland, and Wandering Star (among others TBA). You can get your tickets for Barrels & Kegs here, and don’t forget to join Jimmy at 5 p.m. when he taps the ESB from Rockaway Brewing Company. As always, while supplies last.
