Burgers Take A Back Seat To The Mighty BLT at JCT. Bar

 

Beginning this week, JCT. Bar is updating its Burger and Beer special to suit the season – tomato season, that is. Instead of a burger, the rooftop bar is now offering a BLT with local heirloom tomato, house smoked bacon from Gum Creek Farms, arugula, and pickled jalapeno mayo paired with a Southampton Biere de Mars for $10 every Tuesday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Southampton's Biere de Mars is a classic interpretation of an authentic French farmhouse-style Biere de Mars. Their version is brewed with a blend of wheat and barley malts and a generous amount of continental hops. It is cool fermented and aged to give it a clean, smooth, lager-like character – perfect for summer!
