It’s pretty much impossible to figure out the best thing we ate and drank at last night’s jam-packed Good Beer 2013 event (our fifth!) at 82 Mercer.
If you don’t know Jimmy Carbone, you should. Not only does his charming, other-worldly, subterranean spot on east 7th Street, Jimmy’s No. 43, have one of the best local and international craft beer selections in the whole darned city (not to mention the pubby, disarmingly delicious snacks and bigger-bites menu), but Carbone has become a bit of a saint on the slow-food scene. But today, big giver Saint Jimmy needs a little help coming his way for a change.
Back at the tail end of last year, the brewers behind Pennsylvania’s Sly Fox (owned by one Brian O’Reilly) and Shmaltz Brewing Company from Upstate New York got the idea to do a Hanukah-Christmas beer challenge. The follow up–St. Pat’s v. Purim, naturally–will be held tonight, March 7, from 7 to 10 pm at Jimmy’s No. 43.
