Beer Talk: Joe Jackson

Email a Friend

The English singer-songwriter, composer and pianist Joe Jackson (best known for hits like “Is She Really Going Out With Him?” and “Steppin Out”) recently stopped by to talk about his new album of Duke Ellington songs, called "The Duke." Jackson is also quite the stealth connoisseur when it comes to beer -- and so we invited him to sample a few ales with us in this installment of Beer Talk.

We enlisted the help of the East Village craft beer shop, Good Beer, and their manager, Jen Dickey - who picked out a few brews. Hear Jackson and John Schaefer discuss an ESB from Stroudt, an IPA from Loose Cannon and a wild beer from Greenflash described to taste of "sweaty gym sock."
