In September 2009, the folks at NYC Beer Week asked me to lead a tour. I called a few homebrewer friends, set an itinerary and the Homebrew Tour was born. I thought it would be fun to give people a peek into their world, to let tour takers try these beers and learn what makes the brewers tick and decide to brew in these tiny, tiny apartments.
The tour was supposed to be a one-off. But after the first one, attendees asked, "When's the next tour?" So I did a second tour, then a third tour, then dozens more. Which brings me to today.
For Jimmy's Homebrew Jamboree, it's time to return to my Beer Week roots. We're taking over my favorite East Village bar, Jimmy's No. 43, for their signature event of Beer Week. I've enlisted 14 of my favorite homebrewers to make special beers for the event. Expect double IPAs, hoppy red ales, saisons, stouts and a host of unusual--and unusually delicious--beers as well.
In addition to boatloads of beer, you'll be well fed too. Jimmy's is providing a smorgasbord of goodies including: black-and-tan griddle cakes, huevos rancheros, mini grilled cheese, sweet potato-and-bacon hash, ham biscuits with red-eye gravy and bánh mì biscuits.
Plus, Jimmy's will have a special lineup of beers on tap available for purchase during and after the event. Attendees receive $1 off draft beers all night.
Tickets are $35. To purchase them, click here:
