The Smith Gets Its Own Beer
What Happens When isn't the only restaurant offering proprietary booze.
The Smith has enlisted Sixpoint Brewery to create a house beer that will be available on tap exclusively at the restaurant and at Jane. A spokesperson says the East Village Ale, or E.V.A., is a wheat bear-meets-pilsner-meets-pale ale. It's unfiltered, light- to medium-bodied, with notes of fruit, honey, and spice. Sounds like this serious gastropub just got a little more serious.
