A Week From Today, Thursday, November 23rd (Thanksgiving)…

The Thirsty Quaker will be open from noon Til 5. Come on in and say Hi to Willie on your way to see the family and devour the traditional bird carcass while someone pays too much attention to the sports playing on tv in the other room. Full disclosure: The guy in the other room is usually me.
While we love bringing you the newest and most interesting offerings that the craft beer world has to… offer, we also scour the Earth looking for new and unique spirits. Fortunately for us, Corgi Spirits opened up right in our backyard, so we didn’t even have to get in the car. We now have Corgi’s Saddlecoat Vodka, Pembroke Gin, and their flagship, Earl Grey Gin! Come on in and check them out. You won’t be disappointed.

On to the Beer:
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 1pt9oz b
Lancaster Winter Warmer 6pk b
Founders Azacca IPA 15pk c
Flying Dog Family Drama Imperial Pilsner 6pk b
Saugatuck Blueberry Maple Stout 6pk b

Halloween is over…

… And the turkeys are nervous.

A special thank you goes out to all the trick or treaters that graced the Thirsty Quaker on Tuesday. The kids, pets and grown ups that came by in costume looked great, and brought paid for their treats with big smiles and warm hearts. The only down side to Halloween is that it comes but once a year, unless of course we can turn Walpurgisnacht into a thing, but I’m not holding my breath.

Anyway, here are some new beers:
Bolero Snort Bullyjuice DIPA 4pk c
Ballast Point Victory At Sea Coffee Porter 6pk b
Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Wet Hop IPA 6pk b
Departed Soles Nuggy Monster Saison 4pk c
Bolero Snort SVB Strawberry Cream IPA 4pk c

Departed Soles Flavor Unit DDH IPA 4pk c
Anderson Valley Briny Melon Gose 6pk c
Bolero Snort Cinnabull Imperial Porter 750ml b
Alpine Pure Hoppiness IPA 6pk c

It’s a lightre list this week, but trust me, it’s quality.

I’ll be hanging out in a cemetery this Saturday…

…how about you? The Ghost Of Uncle Joe’s is a time-honored Jersey City tradition, and if you haven’t seen a bunch of grownups dress up as their favorite rock stars and play their hearts out for charity, all the while surrounded by people in their forever homes, well then, my friend, you simply haven’t LIVED… in town for very long, probably.
