I’m seriously backlogged with my posting, so there will be lots of activity in the next week or so of me trying to catch up!
On the 18th, I visited a preview of the Bronx Beer Hall at a pop up beer garden at the Valentine-Varian House. The thing is, I’m not a beer drinker. So, unfortunately, I can’t give any insight into the quality or taste of any of the Jonas Bronck’s varieties. You’ll have to see for yourself.
Sponsored by from the Bronx and Little Italy staple Mike’s Deli, the event featured a live jazz band in addition to serving up cold beer and to my surprise Bronx Pop. I wasn’t even sure if they were still making any since the last time I had checked online everything was sold out or out stock. So, my friend and I opted for a Lime Rickery and Black Cherry.
I was in the throes of a serious cold, but it was nice to be out of the house relaxing outdoors. Plus, I’d never been to the Valentine-Varian House before, and you guys know I’m a closeted history nerd, so it was cool to be able to check out the exhibits.
I’ll be sure to post when the Bronx Beer Hall opens this summer.
