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 »

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.

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.
