Introducing Brouwerij Het Nest

We're pleased to announce the launch of Brouwerij Het Nest from Turnhout, Belgium.  The Het Nest brewery started as a group of friends with a beer tasting club.  They then moved on to brewing classes and, eventually, to brewing their own beer. Join Filip Govaerts from the brewery for the debut of 2 of their beers in New York this Thursday, 22 August, at Jimmy's No. 43. 
  • Turnhoutse Patriot Saison (draft) is a 6.5% saison brewed with barley malt, spelt, American hops, and fermented with a French saison yeast strain.  Brewed in honor of the city of Turnhout's 800th anniversary.  The city of Turnhout is known for the manufacturing of playing cards which is why their logo is a hand of cards and playing cards are featured on most of the labels.
  • Ace of Spades (bottles) is a 6.5% amber ale hopped with Tomahawk and Simoe and fermented with brettanomyces during secondary fermentation (bottles)
The Turnhouste Patriot Saison will be featured as this week's Thursday Tap and will be tapped at 5pm.

Jimmy's No. 43 is located at 43 E. 7th Street.
