Meet the Brewer - Naparbier from Spain

Join us this Tuesday, 27 May, at Jimmy's No. 43 for an informal meet-and-greet with Brewmaster Juan Rodriguez and Sven Bosch from Naparbier. They're in town before heading up and down the east coast brewing collaborations with Pretty Things, Cambridge Brewing, Oxbow, and Weyerbacher.

Naparbier is a co-op brewery located near Pamplona, Navarra, Spain. The name is a combination of Napar, which means Navarra in the Basque language, and the German word for beer. Juan started brewing traditional German beers in 2009 but now brews all styles including pilsner, IPA and imperial IPA, Russian imperial stout, and barleywine. He's also brewed collaborations with a variety of European brewers including Mikkeller, Nøgne Ø, and Beavertown.

We'll be pouring 3 of their beers:

  • ZZ+ Amber - malty and well-hopped amber ale
  • Naparpils - an easy-drinking, food-friendly, unfiltered pilsner
  • Sai Saison - refreshing saison with orange and lemon peels
There will also be a guided beer and cheese pairing using Naparbier beers led by cheesemonger Pamela  Brewer. Get tickets for the pairing here.

Jimmy's No. 43 is located at 43 E. 7th Street and the Napar fellows will be arriving around 7pm following their appearance on Beer Sessions Radio (along with guest Jason Perkins of Allagash). Tune into the Heritage Radio Network to listen live or listen later via iTunes.
