As a lead up to NYC Beer Week (2/24-3/3), Jimmy’s No. 43 played host to the annual Good Beer Seal bar owners’ luncheon on February 7th. Happily, all five boroughs were represented by 13 GBS bars, the NYC Homebrewers Guild, and Beer Sessions Radio™. Bar representatives discussed the state of being a craft beer bar owner and Good Beer Seal community member. Among the more interesting offerings on the lunch menu was a Samichlaus 1997, provided by Sam Barbieri (Waterfront Ale House). This was the last vintage brewed and bottled by Hürlimann Brewery in Switzerland. Waterfront Ale House has been open since 1989 and has an amazing cellar of vintage beers. For NYC Beer Week, they will be featuring one beer from each of the NY Brewers Guild breweries with food pairings.

We invite the craft beer community to celebrate NYC Beer Week at one (or many) of the 41 GBS bars that will be hosting events, many of which will be listed here on our calendar. Among the featured events will be:
