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 »
New York City beer week is back from February 18 to 27. We’ll be pouring specialty beers, including our NYC Beer Week SMaSH (State Malts and State Hops) Beer — a kettle-soured golden ale called LowBrow Brilliant — at events throughout the week. There will also be tons of opportunities to meet the crew.

Need something HOT to get the juices flowing. You’ve got your ritual: grind it, mash it, steep it, pour it over, finish with CREAM. 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 »
