Barley is the primary grain used in beer, and bread is made of wheat. But the thing is, you can make bread with barley, and beer with wheat. So what gives?! Hint: there are good reasons for both. More »
You’ve probably thrown together a few coolers in your time, and we can bet that no one got hurt and it ended up being a good time. So you might think that throwing together the perfect beer cooler is easy. Well, think again!!!
Leave it to the Mad Scientists at Sixpoint to maniacally set out to put together the perfect cooler… More »
Little Raspy is a little sensitive. People don’t know him all that well yet, he’s low ABV, and got a soft, white, fluffy cap. On top of that, the TONS of raspberries he’s brewed with (294 lbs per batch!) make him pour up bright pink.
A new series is cropping up here at Sixpoint. In the first ever state-centric series release, these offering have a narrow focus, but a really wide appeal from across the interconnected underground network of fans of creatively homegrown Mad Science.
The elusive Double Sweet Action hasn’t been around in any serious quantities for years now. Sure some wily bartenders stowed some kegs away here and there, but we knew it was getting time to bring this bad ass ale back. We first brewed Double Sweet for the five-year anniversary party in 2010, and now on the heels of our 11th anniversary we dug out the old recipe (and made some key recipe tweaks). It clocks in at 9% ABV and has the balance that’s at the heart of the Sweet Action concept. While the ABV pushes barleywine territory, this beer leans on English Maris Otter barley rather than caramel malts. So it’s rich, but finishes clean and without much residual sweetness.
Update: The winners have been chosen and notified. A huge thanks to everyone who sent us their #CraftRitual. Cheers!
We’re wrapping up our #CraftRitual photo contest, where people submit what #CraftRitual means to them, on 3/18! The best entry wins a growler, and custom “Waking Hours” tee-shirts go to some other awesome entries. More »
Think about beer… it’s a humble beverage. It’s been the drink of choice for the working classes for centuries, great for quenching thirsts and sustaining hard labor.
But there is something mystical… something alluring about a beautiful pint. A golden body topped by rocky, bone-white foam. Or a black brew with a deep tan topper. A cloudy hefeweizen crowned with a big bowl of frothy foam, or a crystal-clear pils with a tight white head. More »
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 »
