Together With 

Cranberry. Not just for dessert anymore.

A classic Bock gets a big blast of cranberry and orange peel, making for the perfect holiday paring - complete with a Thanksgiving Dinner To-Go drive for our South BX Community. 

JINGLE JANGLE 

Vanilla, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, & a lot of holiday cheer

Aged with Amburana Wood, this Holiday Ale's a little sweet, with a little spice. A little naughty and a little nice. 

Tattooed Pumpkin

Hazy pumpkin ipa - like a psl but with face tats

We linked up & inked up with Bronx Tattoo Legends Tuff City to help design the label for this fusion of a hazy IPA & a classic pumpkin ale.

Made with pumpkin & seasonal spices, you'll get this one in waves.

The fall spice hits first, with big notes of cinnamon, nutmeg & allspice. The hops take over from there, bringing a little warmth & pine notes, before giving way to a soft & subtle vanilla-spice on the finish.

Urban eden

our beer-cider fall hybrid

Made with apple cider and clover honey, our brand-new apple-honey Saison starts sweet, but finishes dry - making it perfect for fall.

French-Saison yeast provides familiar banana and clove notes creating a rich flavor that is smooth and light on the palate.

On the label? A new piece of art from local Bronx floral artist & designer, 6 Line Florals.

About Christian '6 Line' Montero

 

Born and raised on Cypress Ave in Mott Haven, Christian '6 Line' Montero became fascinated by plants because of his grandmother, who connected to him by teaching him how to care for plant life.

Named '6Line' because he was raised right in front of the 6 Train, Montero's been connected to the 6 his whole life. It taught him how to navigate the city, and was where he slept when he became homeless.

At the age of 23, he started volunteering at a community garden to help his depression, and found he was a natural at growing food. That process led him to grow flowers, where he found he had a passion for putting bouquets together.

Now, the founder of the Concrete Jungle BX has become a rising star in the floral world, and a major advocate for public gardens in The Bronx.

Chance of clouds.

el condado de la salsa

lime, coconut & passionfruit come together to celebrate the story of salsa in the bronx

Made in tandem with The Salsa Project, El Condado de la Salsa traces the path that salsa music took through the Bronx — where a collision of music and culture created a new art form as vibrant as the borough that birthed it. Drawing from ingredients of African, Cuban & Puerto Rican descent, every sip dances with a relaxing, tropical, summertime vibe. 

About The Salsa Project


"The Salsa Project" is a movement rooted in getting more young people involved in Salsa music. The goal of this project is to protect, preserve, and ensure that Salsa does not die amongst the younger generations to come. "The Salsa Project" takes on a multi-disciplinary approach, which covers a docu-series, community engagement, events, and merchandise. The culmination of these four elements will help create a platform for all to engage, learn, and partake in our mission to keep the culture alive.

We created a playlist with over 36 hours of music, which pays tribute to the origins of Salsa in New York and its particular sound up until the late 1990s. When Cubans and Puerto Ricans migrated to the South Bronx and El Barrio they brought along with them their unique styles of music, rhythm and clave. A mixture of Afro-Cuban rhythms, cha cha, mambo, boogaloo, pachanga and charanga could be heard throughout New York emanating from fire escapes and passing cars and in places such as El Hippo Campo, Wild Palms, The Corso, Hunts Point Palace and the infamous Palladium.

The influences of these several genres of music would become the antecedent of Salsa. From Aresenio Rodriguez who moved to the Bronx from Cuba during the 1950's, to charanga bands such as Tipica 73', to the creation of Fania Records, to El Barrio's own Marc Anthony, this playlist will take you on a tour of the history of the Salsa experience in New York.

This playlist was curated by The Salsa Project's Historian, Nicole Espinosa. Nicole is a Puerto Rican and Cuban Bronx based Salsa enthusiast. She holds a BA in Social Sciences with a concentration in Media Studies from New York University.
