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 »

Philly is one of our oldest markets (outside of NYC of course)… we’ve been slinging brew there since March of ‘09.
Our man “Jersey” Dan Bisogno has been holding it down ever since, through 6 insane Philly Beer Weeks, and he’s seen the scene change into the incredible Craft Beer Mecca that Philly has become. In the last couple years, we’ve been witnessing an amazing urban phenomenon – pop-up beer gardens. More »
Brewing beer is about creating a balance of flavors that work together to become greater than the sum of their parts. Take Sweet Action for example. It pits solid, rich barley squarely against tasty American hops… they duke it out till they both lie panting, and your brain is confused but your mouth loves it. That’s SWEET ACTION.
Mixologists have the same goal. So we’re excited to see more and more beers getting used as a key ingredient in cocktails. Though some might call it blasphemy, we embrace the Mad Science of flavor creation. More »
Lil’ Raspy is a little sensitive. He’s low ABV, got a soft, white, fluffy cap and the raspberry puree he’s brewed with gives him a pinkish hue. And that makes people think he isn’t tough. But he’s a prickly sucker… definitely one of the most sour beers the Mad Scientists have released in recent memory. More »
