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 »

Sixpoint Oktoberfest

IMG_2782_jl_edit

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.

Brett Safe Barrel-Aged Saison

brettsafe-pour

Get Safe was a farmhouse ale we made for years as a BKLYN-only brew infused with local rooftop herbs. “Brett Safe” is an evolution of that beer – stronger, at 6.2%, aged in wine barrels, and re-fermented with Brettanomyces, a wild strain of yeast. More »

Philly is one of our oldest markets (outside of NYC of course)… we’ve been slinging brew there since March of ‘09.

JD’s hair in PRIME condition here

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 »

Beer Cocktails: JAMMER Edition

jammer-jandy

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 »
