Sixpoint Global Warmer Returns for 2015


There’s no denying it. The beer climate is changing.

Ironically enough, a beer founded on change has now become our longest running seasonal offering. Global Warmer was actually the beer that got us re-thinking the seasonal program, and kick-started the Mad Science that is “Cycliquids,” our unpredictable, ever-rotating series of new formulations.

Diesel Stout Back in Small-Batches


Diesel is one of the original Sixpoint recipes, a black-as-night stout with piney bursts of American hop character battling through roast and malt. We’ve revived this brew in time for winter, draft-only for now. More »

Irish Hello Dry Stout


Irish Hello is our latest beer brewed in collaboration with homebrewers as part of our Homebrew Alley series. Tom Jambor’s stout was a standout brew at the fest this year — piercingly roasty, creamy, and extra-dry. In a homebrew contest highlighted by Imperial and mixed fermentation brews, Tom’s brew resonated with our team due to a certain clarity of flavor. More »

Bang Bang Dudley: Barrel-Aged Irish Red


Bang Bang Dudley is an Imperial Red Ale aged for months in Irish Whiskey barrels from Teeling Distillery based in Dublin. These barrels have been around the world, housing bourbon and rum before making their way to Teeling. This huge take on the Irish Red style drinks almost like a smooth “Irish-style” barleywine, with rich, full, and complex malt character complemented by the unique flavors of the barrel. More »

Sensi 2015 Video Game


To create SENSI, the Mad Scientists travel out to the Hop Motherland in Yakima, Washington and visit with farmers, check out the year’s crop, and make sure only the finest whole-cone, still-wet hops make it into the beer. More »

Sensi 2015 Wet Hop Ale


The Mad Scientists make a pilgrimage to the hop motherland during harvest time to experience ripe hop cones in their freshest form. Pulled right off the bines, and never processed or dried, these juicy cones go straight into SENSI. It’s an incredible moment, witnessing hop cones at peak maturity… smelling them at their most fragrant… and it can only be experienced at the hop harvest. (Or by drinking a SENSI.) More »

Wet-Hopping: An Explainer

Sensi Harvest

Okay, this is one of the trickiest, weirdest turns of phrase in the brewing world. It seems simple enough… dry-hops must be the opposite of wet hops, right? No confusion there. But wait, you can dry-hop with wet hops??! Dry-hop can be a verb?? And where do these hop pellets I’ve heard about come in???! More »

2015 UPDATE – September 18th and 19th: Sixpoint on Stone Oktoberfest is set to be nuts this year. It’s one of our absolute favorite events for a few years running now, and the whole crew is turning out. We brewed up tons of smooth, toasty, caramel-y lager to fill into stein after stein. If you’ve been before you know the drill – firkins tap Friday evening, Saturday goes noon till late. Hoisting contests are a must. Tunes jamming, great food, great beer…. see you then.


2014 Post: It’s Oktoberfest time at Sixpoint, and we’re celebrating in high style with a day-long festival on New York’s historic Stone Street in lower Manhattan. Steins start filling at noon on Saturday and stay hoisted late into the night.  More »

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