• ‘UK Beer Weekend’ an unusual event

18 May

NEW YORK — There are certain countries where brewing is so deeply embedded in the culture and history that they can’t be pried loose. The United Kingdom is one of those.

Jimmy’s No. 43, located at 43 East 7th Street in Manhattan, will be offering a broad range of Brit brews during the “UK Beer Weekend” scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 11-12. More than 20 small-production English and Scottish beers will be featured, including limited vintage and cask beers. Admission covers tasting of all the beers, as well as typical pub-style snacks such as cheeses, sausages, bacon, and bread.

Sessions to choose: Friday, June 10, 2 to 5 p.m.; Saturday, June 11, 1 to 4 p.m. The $35 admission is for one of the two events. Advance reservations are required.
