Sixpoint Brewery Beer Soon to Be Sold in Connecticut!

26 Apr

Six points, get it?

May 24,

Statewide,

The fulfillment of all your beer-laden dreams.

Yes, it’s true.  If you keep eating your Wheaties and saying your prayers bruthha, Sixpoint Brewery will start to ship their bottled liquid awesomeness to Connecticut retailers.  They have a devoted following in New York, Massachusets, Vermont, and beyond and if you’re a beerocrat, you probably visited their brewery in Brooklyn, have downed their brews, and have heard how legen-wait for it-dary they are.  Yes, Sixpoint is known for making wicked good beer, but also taking it up a few thousand notches.  Yes, you can trust their year round selection like your BFF, but they also have a beer to match each season.

Once you start drinking Sixpoint beer, you’ll want to visit their brewery.  And, when you visit, you’ll need to try their awesome, one-0f-a-kind-redonkulous formulations.  We had a chance to try some of these at Beer for Beasts 2 this year and loved the 50 or so shots of different beer that we tasted.  Beer with crimini mushrooms, beer brewed with lobster shells, beer that was spicy, beer with chocolate…you name it, we tried it.  Our next stop is checking out the brewery because we want to see where the magic happens.

So, we’ve put together a nice list of their beer that gets sent to stores in cans.  Yes, cans.  Check out their explanation for why (remember that New England Brewing Company also cans their goodies).  Have any of you had Sixpoint beer?  Which kind(s) are your favorites?   More importantly, what are you doing May 24?

      Cool, right Ryan? :) Where’d you get the can…Port Chester? :) Spill the goods. :P It’s interesting, because they don’t advertise what styles the beers are.

        Actually picked it up at DeCicco’s in Ardsley (wrote about this place on FPB yesterday). It’s further than Portchester, but it’s close to the new Captain Lawrence brewery (hence my visit).

          Hey, heard about DeCicco’s, need to read your post. We’re also really excited to go back to Captain Lawrence and check out their new digs. :) You and Kyle live the life! :)
