"Brewed Awakening" Book Release Party

Beer writer and beer drinker extraordinaire Joshua Bernstein is celebrating the release of his new book, Brewed Awakening: Behind the Beers and Brewers Leading the World's Craft Brewing Revolution. His travels in support of the book have taken him around the country but this week he lands at Jimmy's No. 43 for a release party on Wednesday. With beer. 

When: Wednesday, 9 November, 6-8 pm
Where: Jimmy's No. 43, 43 E. 7th Street
What: pay-as-you-go

Joshua spent 6 years researching the craft beer industry for Brewed Awakening. We're very pleased that for this release party he chose to feature some of our breweries that he wrote about to represent brewers who are "leading a boundary-less charge into the global future of beer". What are those breweries, you ask? You'll have to pick up a book to find out about all of them but some will be poured at Jimmy's No. 43 including Dieu du Ciel!, Epic, Jolly Pumpkin, Nøgne Ø, and Mikkeller.

But before Wednesday's main event, there will be a preview of some of the beers on Tuesday at the weekly $10 Tasting. Please note that Josh will NOT be attending the Tuesday tasting. But if you happen to be in Philadelphia, he will be hosting beer shenanigans (and signing books) at the Nodding Head from 7-9 pm.

When: Tuesday, 8 November, 7:30 pm
Where: Jimmy's No. 43, 43 E. 7th Street
What: 6 samples for $10 (seating limited)

The beers:
  • Mikkeller Drink'in the Sun (on draft) - hoppy American-style wheat beer, 2.4%
  • Dieu du Ciel! Corne du Diable (draft) - American-style IPA, 6.5%
  • Jolly Pumpkin La Roja (bottles) - oak-aged Flanders red ale, 7.2%
  • Nøgne Ø Tiger Tripel (bottles) - balanced Belgian tripel, 9%
  • Mikkeller Monk's Brew (bottles) - dark Belgian-style ale inspired by the Trappist beers of Rochefort and Westvleteren, 10%
  • Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout (draft) - Russian Imperial Stout, 9%

Researching breweries is not an easy task. Check out the video to see how Josh managed to survive it all (hint: beer is involved).
