If you live in Jersey City…

I really hope you got to ring in the New Year at The Pet Shop. If you’re not from Jersey City and you’re hanging out in a pet shop on New Year’s rockin’ eve, well, I’m not one to judge, but it might be time for a new hobby. If you were there, then take a moment to reminisce with me about studded leather codpieces and high kicks, a cover of Eruption that would make Eddie himself blush, and  an encore that took us all back to 1984. Later in the evening, the only band that matters (or a fantastic interpretation of them, anyway) helped us kick the last few piles of dirt onto the fetid carcass of 2017.

But here we are in 2018! Our hopes and reservations loom large for the coming year, and the Thirsty Quaker is here to keep you from getting too rattled by offering you the freshest, most awesome new beers. Check’em out:

The Alementary Snow Bird DIPA 4pk c
Eclipse Imperial Stout 22oz b
Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA 4pk c
Von Trapp Double IPL 4pk c
Abita Mardi Gras Bock 6pk b
Stone Tangerine Express IPA 6pk c

The Thirsty Quaker’s 2017 Gift Guide

If you need gift ideas, we’ve got you covered! We of course have gift cards, but if you need something a little personal, check out these ideas.

Craft Beer Flight Kits
Sample a new, unique or rare beer each day from these curated collections of craft beer. It’s like an advent calendar of beer! Read our tasting notes, and make your own notes and rate them online. We also have empty packs that you can fill out with any beers from the shop that catch your fancy.

Beer recipe packs – 15.99 – 19.99
