The Bronx Brewery has partnered with local beef jerky makers SlantShack Jerky to create a new product, marinated in their beer. The creation is the company’s first beer-based jerky, made using a blend of Brooklyn-based Tin Mustard, honey, and Bronx Pale Ale. It’s available with either 100 percent grass-fed or USDA Choice beef.
“We’re excited to be working with Bronx Brewery, a young, startup company much like ours – we’re both committed to making high-quality, well-crafted products,” said David Koretz, CEO and Chief Operating Officer of SlantShack Jerky. “We love eating our jerky with a beer in hand, so we figured why not try putting beer in the jerky? It turned out great.”
“We love SlantShack’s creativeness and commitment to making a quality, local product,” said Chris Gallant. “We’ve been huge fans of their jerky since they attended our release party in September and are excited that the Bronx Pale Ale Jerky is now part of their impressive lineup.”
The jerky will be introduced to the public at a tasting event on Wednesday, March 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. After that, the snack will be sold at bars and specialty food stores throughout New York City, including Stinky Bklyn, Chelsea Market Baskets and Eastern District, and also at www.slantshackjerky.com.
