Jewish Dining and Drinking Hour Continues with a Shmaltz Brewing Co. Tap Takeover at Jack Rose

2007 18th Street, NW

From a press release:

“It’s a Brewery! Celebrating the “rebirth” of San Francisco-based Shmaltz Brewing Co., DC’s Jack Rose Dining Saloon is christening the brewery’s new NYC home with a rooftop tap takeover party hosted by Shmaltz brewmaster himself, Jeremy Cowan, on Saturday, July 20 at 2PM. The alfresco celebration will feature 24 Shmaltz brews on draft, from the cask and in rare vintage bottles – including the limited-release Death of a Contract Brewer IPA – as well as celebratory cigars, creative deli fare and an afternoon of beer and shower-themed games like baby bottle bowling and beer bingo.

“Born” in San Francisco in 1996, Shmaltz is being “rebirthed” now in 2013 with its new 20,000-square-foot, 50-barrel brewing home in Clifton Park, NY. With the help of Jack Rose beer director Nahem Simon, Shmaltz is taking over the rooftop’s tap handles with brews from its loved He’Brew and Coney Island Lagers lines as well as launching the uber-rare, exclusive Death of a Contract Brewer Commemorative Black IPA, making Jack Rose the only place outside of NYC to taste this celebratory limited-release brew.

Since 18 is a sacred number in the Jewish tradition, Jack Rose will be featuring 18 award-winning Shmaltz beers on draft and cask, including the first keg of Death of a Contract Brewer Commemorative Black IPA to make it outside of NYC

  • wow, I actually biked past the brewery’s “relaunch” party in Clifton Park when I was visiting family 2 weekends ago. Didn’t go in because the guy i was riding with didnt want to pay the $25 entrance fee. I guess I’ll have to stop by here and give him a full report!

  • Schmaltz brews some really good beers!

    And I cringe every time I see that McDonald’s billboard on the side of Jack Rose. It’s very off-putting.

    I thought billboards were mostly outlawed in DC. Was this one grandfathered in?

  • I always try to make it out to this place but then get side-tracked with cravings for McDonald’s… Don’t know why…

  • “DC’s Jack Rose Dining Saloon is christening..”
    Christening?! Poor choice of words..

  • Are you sure this is a NYC brewery? Clifton Park, NY is right outside of Albany, kinda like Richmond is to DC. The beer sounds great, but it sounds like a NY State beer not an NYC beer.

    • Well, those beers you buy at the store that say “Brooklyn Brewery” on them weren’t exactly brewed and bottled in Brooklyn, either.
