Please help Jones Wood Foundry support small NY breweries who have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic!

Starting early May and continuing through the summer, Jones Wood Foundry will be shining the spotlight
on a different small New York brewery each week.
We reached out to a series of select breweries and asked them to produce a special Cask Ale of their choosing for JWF.  Each cask will be unveiled and the focus of a
"Cask Ale" Happy Hour event every Monday and Tuesday 4PM-7PM. 

Beer lovers will be able to not only sample a different cask every week, but also learn a bit about each particular brewery's story, and do so with discounted prices and JWF food pairings in our beer garden.
The cask will then be served at regular prices for the rest of the week while supplies last.
All NYC covid protocols will be enforced and social distancing will be followed.

Below you can find your favorite brewery on the calendar, read their story,
and see what cask they will be tapping along with tasting notes:

DUTCHESS ALES

dutchess-ales

Dutchess Ales began as a project for us to recreate the delicious, balanced traditional real cask ales we know from the UK here in the US.  In recent years, we have found joy in creating a series of 'hybrid' ales, blending the aspects we love most about US and British brewing culture.  We hope you find them refreshing, balanced, innovative and of the highest quality.

CASK OF THE WEEK

Telios IPA - AVB: 5.6% English IPA
Telios is a Spring & Summer seasonal ’Trans-Atlantic’ (... a little East Coast, a little UK) IPA with a lush and bursting profile.  Brewed with UK Spring Malt, a dash of wheat and oat malt and hopped with NZ Rakau, BRU-1, Centennial, and Simoce hops.  Clean toasty malt notes balanced with a full orchard of aromas and flavors of fresh peaches, citrus, apricots, mangoes & ripe pineapple.  Balanced out with a clean woodsy warmth and gentle bitterness, it's truly a beer to both savor and session!

GUN HILL BREWERY

gun-hill

Covid has created many, many changes at Gun Hill, however, we're trying to turn a negative into a positive. We've used this past year as an opportunity to hit the reset button in order to evaluate what was working and not working for us. We drastically changed our production schedule and our distribution footprint, but we're hopeful for what the future holds.

Barrier Brewing

BarrierBrewing

As a brewery who distributes In many states across the US and a few countries around the globe, a world wide shut down on bars and restaurants was a massive blow to our production model... An obstacle we needed to figure out how to navigate around as soon as possible... Similar to when hurricane Sandy pretty much destroyed our brewery back in 2012...  But like than, it was the local love and support of our community that pulled us through... with the taproom being closed and distribution basically on hold,  it was the people coming down day after day buying case after case for month after month.. that made all the difference. Just another little reminder how important it is to look after your neighbors... we're always better together!

CASK OF THE WEEK

SHORE SHAKER IPA - AVB:  4.2 %

This little beauty was inspired by the drinking culture overseas, especially in the UK. Lower abv IPA's starting popping up because you can drink a bunch without feeling like you just ate a meal... the way some heavier IPA'S tend to do. So this holds all the big juicy flavors of an IPA while still being extremely crushable. It's light, crisp, floral, has big notes of oranges and lemon peel... all with a super smooth finish.

This beer would pair great with many dishes because of its drinkability and citrus characteristics... Fish and Red meats in particular.

Things like the Fish and Chips, Lamb Shank, braised short rib, JWF burger... would truly all be fantastic pairings.

ENDLESS LIFE BREWING

endless life brewing

Endless Life is the perpetual pursuit of better beer through a passionate focus on quality, community, and intent.

I have been homebrewing since 2012 and brewing professionally in Brooklyn since 2014. I'm grateful for all of those that have come before me, shared knowledge with me, and given me the opportunities to grow into the position that I currently find myself.

From my first homebrew meeting, it was clear that shared knowledge and genuine support for one another were key components of the homebrew community. This has translated and deepened throughout my years in the professional community. Community is at the core of my love for this industry.

We use 100% NY state malt & hops. We revel in the limitless possibilities and constant evolution of flavors created through using local ingredients.

There is a new world of flavors being created right in our own backyard through the tireless efforts of the farmers, maltsters, and hop growers honing their craft alongside of us in the state of New York. We tip our hats to them as they make everything that we do possible.

We are glad to have you as our companions in this exploration as we travel this endless path.

Flagship Brewing

Flagship

Staten Island, N.Y. stands in the shadows of the big buildings and skyscrapers of Manhattan. Known to many as the “Forgotten Borough”, Staten Island has always had its own distinct culture that has made the borough unique in NYC. In 2013, a team of native Staten Islanders felt that their hometown was lacking something that could bring the diverse people of Staten Island together. In May of 2014 The Flagship Brewing Company was born in the Tompkinsville section of the Island, where it still stands today. Matt and Jay, the company’s Co-founders, grew up together as next door neighbors. Driven by a mutual love for craft beer, they set out to build a brewery that was based on quality, creativity and local collaboration. Flagship Brewery now sells its beer throughout NYC and is always brewing up something special in collaboration with other local businesses. Flagship Brewery is, and will continue to be, the true taste of creativity in Staten Island, NYC and beyond.
