Sixpoint Brewery Can-to-table Dinner @ Bistro 7 in Wilton

7 Mar

Sixpoint Brewery is pretty new to the Connecticut market, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming all the buzz.  We had our first taste of Sixpoint last year when we tried out around 50 different custom brews (some made with lobster, some made with oyster, even some made with saffron) for their annual Beer for Beasts event in Brooklyn.  If you’re interested, it’s going down again this year with tons of brews and food trucks on hand all to support The Humane Society of NY.

From the looks of the dishes, beer is being used in very fun, creative, and unexpected ways.  So, let’s gander at the menu:

Über Exclusive Craft Beer Tasting at Harry’s – Fairfield, CT

31 May

Harry’s Wine & Liquor Market is hosting a beer tasting of epic proportions this Saturday, 6/12, from 12 to 3 pm.  Why so epic?  The three breweries that have been hot on the minds of beer guzzlers all across Connecticut will be featured.  Yes, Green Flash Brewing Company from San Diego, Clown Shoes Beer from Boston, and Sixpoint Brewery from Brooklyn will be well represented.

Let’s show ya what you’ll be able to sample:

Green Flash Brewing Company, 12-1 pm

West Coast IPA, Hop Head Red, Rayon Vert, and Imperial IPA

Clown Shoes Beer, 1-2 pm

Muffin Top, Clementine, Hoppy Feet, and Tramp Stamp

Sixpoint Brewery, 2-3 pm

Resin, Righteous, Sweet Action, and Crisp Lager

Also on hand will be Craft Beer Guild Distributing of Connecticut.  They will be introducing the above beers and talking about their mission to bring more killah beer to Connecticut.  As they build up their beer portfolio (doesn’t that sound awesome, a portfolio of beer?) the variety and selection of goodness in the state will rise up too.  Harry’s will be following this event up with more craft and artisan brews on their shelves in the next few weeks, so check their shelves often for that hop fix of yours.  So, add that to the 300 different craft brews and 50 national brands and you’ve got Beerpocalypse!

Sixpoint Brewery Beer Soon to Be Sold in Connecticut!

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?
