The folks at the Bronx Brewery have come up with an all new incarnation of their pale ale:  the Black Pale Ale.  And it's launching tomorrow, exclusively at Jimmy's No. 43.  The brewer, manager and sales director will be on hand to deal out the new brew, alongside their flagship pale ale as well as cask versions of both.  Head on over to support one of NYC's best new breweries.

Is your New Years resolution to enjoy more hoppy west coast beer?  I know, me too.  Well, let's not turn our backs on this one.  Head on over to Malt and Mold this Thursday to get a free tasting of a range of Ballast Brews.  There's no info out yet about what brews they'll be pouring but you can count on them being hoppy and delicious.  And while you're at it get down with some of their cheese pairings too.
