Sixpoint Jammer Gose

Hundreds of years ago, on the banks of the river Gose, a new type of beer was brewing. Brewers used salinated river water and special souring techniques to create a savory, extra-tart, refreshing beer that quickly became a prized (and costly) regional delicacy.

Sixpoint Barrel-Aged SIGNAL Smoked IPA

barrel-aged-signal-title-b

Signal IPA is a hybrid formulation that combines smoky malt and aromatic hops. And now the Mad Scientists have struck again – taking it to the next level with bourbon barrel-aging and batch-blending. In the original Signal, the savory, bacony, smoky notes combine with juicy hops to create wholly unique flavor combination.

Beer Clean Glassware

Before we get to beer clean glassware, think about how beer gets into your glass. It’s a remarkable, painstaking process, undertaken by multiple parties. The story begins with farmers sowing seeds of barley, the raw basis for beer. They harvest the grain and send it to maltsters, who treat the grain to exacting standards. The malting process makes sugars available for use in brewing, and different levels of kilning contribute dozens of distinct flavors, from biscuit to chocolate, caramel to coffee. More…
