Beer For Beasts

We all know beer is a beverage enjoyed by humankind going back to the dawn of civilization. But could beer also serve as the main engine to power the cause and social mission to help shelter animals? Beer Advocate and Sixpoint thought with a little creativity, thoughtfulness, and thinking outside the box, it definitely could be done!

Beer For Beasts

Beer For Beasts was born from this idea and intention. Beer Advocate and Sixpoint thought there could be a way to transform the typical elements of a beer festival, and also redirect the intention to help a worthy cause. Since helping animals was already a focal point and personal mission of the founders of Beer Advocate and Sixpoint, the cause was easy to identify. And instead of serving a regular lineup of beers with typical food options, Beer Advocate and Sixpoint decided to brew completely unique, one-time offerings solely for this event. With local talent pitching in to provide the music, and a collection of New York City's great food truck offerings, Beer For Beasts was born.

So yes, beer is more than just a beverage enjoyed by humankind - it helps Beasts too. Every year, dozens of unique beers are enjoyed by people at Beer For Beasts, and all of the proceeds go to the Humane Society of New York. Come join us at Beer For Beasts: A celebration of beer, food and people, for a good cause.

  • Oh, What a Teeling! Fort Defiance Goes Bang! Bang!
    7:00pm December 2, 2015

    The Teeling/Sixpoint Bang Bang Dudley tour rolls on as we visit our neighbors at Fort Defiance in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Mixologist extraordinaire St. John Frizell has concocted a special Teeling Whiskey cocktail just for this evening.

    We worked with Teeling Whiskey to create the Bang Bang Dudley Ale, using their distinctive Irish Whiskey barrels that once housed bourbon and rum before making their way to Dublin. With the unique character of barrels from the only operating distillery in Dublin, and Irish stylistic origins, you can think of this beer as an "Irish-style Barleywine" created in the heart of BKLYN.

    $10 gets you a Bang Bang Dudley beer and a shot of Teeling Whiskey or a 3-ounce shot of beer and a Teeling Whiskey cocktail.

    Peeps from both companies will be doing their thing so come on out!
