While some historical records indicate Sixpoint Brewery was founded in 2004, the real birth of Sixpoint begins at the dawn of civilization. That is when the earliest societies began cultivating cereal grains to make fermented beverages, and the desire for excellence in the craft of brewing was forged. Even during the earliest civilizations, rich iconography had adorned various brewing vessels, and pictographs depicting the craft of brewing were rife with symbolism. One symbol has transcended and survived throughout the ages – the Sixpoint Brewers’ star.
The shimmering light of the Brewer’s star started to shine once again in 2004 with its reincarnation as “Sixpoint Craft Ales.” This is when the Sixpoint Brew Crew not only resurrected the Sixpoint Brewers’ Star, but also breathed life into a patchwork of brewing equipment within an 800 square foot garage in a then-dilapidated neighborhood of Brooklyn, called Red Hook. The original creations of Sixpoint Craft Ales were a mash-up of professional brewing experiences, global brewery influences, and unbridled homebrew proliferation. Out of this modest maritime enclave, hundreds of delicious craft brews were concocted and disseminated, and the star had been reborn.
This Thursday beginning at 3:00pm we bask in the light of Sixpoint’s star. Join us as we knock back several beers with Sixpoint’s owner/founder, Shane Welch from a great lineup of tried and true, as well as new and experimental brews, along with cans of Jammer 2.0, and a specialty firkin of Gorilla Warfare, oak-aged with Frangelico soaked cocoa nibs, just for the occasion.
