Oktoberfest at Jimmy's No. 43 & Brouwerij Lane

It's midway through Oktoberfest which means that it's time to break out some Franconian gravity kegs! If you've ever been to Bamberg or any northern Bavarian village, then you're familiar with these naturally carbonated kegs that sit on top of the bar, dispensed with the help of that mysterious friend - gravity. Many of these beers are only poured in the town of the local brewery but, thanks to Klosterbrauerei Weissenohe's Urban Winkler, we bring a varied selection to the US each year. A limited amount just arrived in NYC and they're starting to appear a local bars beginning this weekend.

When:  Friday, 5 October - Sunday, 7 October
Where:  Jimmy's No. 43, 43 E. 7th Street
What:  pay-as-you-go

All weekend long, Jimmy's No. 43 will be pouring Franconian gravity kegs. They'll be tapping 2 kegs at a time over the weekend. Drop by for a few mugs or stay for the special $20 dinner:  3 wurst, German potato salad, and 2 mugs of gravity keg beer.

The list: 

  • Mahr's Ungespundet
  • Mahr's Unfiltered Pils
  • Mahr's Hell
  • Bayer Theinheim Landbier
  • Niklbrau Michala Kellerbier
  • Weissenohe Unfiltered Pils

  • Weissenohe Monk's Fest

When:  Saturday, 6 October 12-10 pm
Where:  Brouwerij Lane, 78 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn
What:  pay-as-you-go

Brouwerij Lane will be pouring kegs of Mahr's Hell and Bayer Theinheim Landbier at their day-long Oktoberfest celebration. And Jim Barnes, aka Bocky, from Pretty Things will be spinning the tunes. All day. Expect some polka, schlager, Heino, krautrock, Weimar cabaret, and more. But no Falco. 'Cause he's Austrian.
