Jimmy's Brewhaha! It's a-comin'

This Week at Saxelby Cheesemongers

Good morning cheeseheads...

Mark your calendars, get set, and go for another rollicking good tasting at Jimmy's no. 43 on Wednesday, September 26th! It may be early in the morning, but my motto is this: it's never too early to think about dessert.

Jimmy's Brewhaha!
Chocolate, cheese, and beer tasting with Saxelby Cheesemongers, em Chocolatier, and Jimmy's no. 43

Wednesday, September 26th
Jimmy's no. 43
43 E. 7th St.

Tickets $30
Two Seatings: 6:30-8:00 pm and 8:30-10:00 pm

What could be sweeter (or more savory) than a guided tasting of chocolate, cheese, and beer from some of New York's most passionate purveyors? Join in the Brewhaha as Saxelby Cheesemongers, em Chocolatier, and Jimmy's no. 43 team up to bring you eclectic and delectable pairings of American farmstead cheese, handmade truffles, and exotic craft beers. The tasting will feature five pairings of chocolate, cheese, and beer ranging from lemon mint truffles and creamy fresh goat cheese to homemade turtles paired with nutty brown ale. Anne Saxelby of Saxelby Cheesemongers, Ellen Mirsky of em Chocolatier, and Chris Cuzme of New York's Homebrewers Guild will faciliate the tasting, elucidating how each product is made and why some seemingly off-the-wall pairings taste so darn good together!

Reservations are required. To book a reservation, please send an email to or call Saxelby Cheesemongers at 212.228.8204.

And though you may know all the dirt on Saxelby Cheesemongers, here's the skinny on the talented twosome who are collaborating to make this Brewhaha happen:

em Chocolatier was founded by Ellen Mirsky, who for the past 10 years has graced the kitchens of some of New York City's premier restaurants. Ellen's unique, high-quality chocolates are distinguished by her off the beaten path pairings of fruits, herbs, and spices, creating decadent, complex, and nuanced flavors.

Jimmy's no. 43 is a neighborhood joint... restaurant and tavern extraordinaire dedicated to supporting local purveyors and food producers. In addition to its farmers' market driven menu, Jimmy's tap features some of the rarest and most sought after craft beers in the city.
