Brownstone: A BKLYN Institution Takes Flight

In the mid-1800s, the residence known as the Brownstone became popular among the new urban middle classes.  With a distinctive architectural style and sandstone foundation, it was widely built from across the great lakes regions to the eastern seaboard, though over the years it has come to exemplify the rows of townhouses seen today in Brooklyn, NY.

When Sixpoint launched in Brooklyn in 2004, it only seemed appropriate that the name should accompany the first beer produced – the Brownstone Ale.  The beer became a local draft favorite in NYC’s pubs and restaurants, where beer lovers enjoyed what some characterized as a delicate balance between a brown ale and a porter.

Brewed with 8 different malt varieties, including Munich, Chocolate, and Caramel, the Brownstone offers a textured canvas of sweetness while still allowing plenty of room for a spicy hop flavor.

Well, the time has come for the beer to share its unique flavors with the fridges and coolers of the world, and so it should come as no great surprise that this week the Brownstone takes its rightful place as the cornerstone among Sixpoint’s canned favorites, Sweet Action, Bengali Tiger, The Crisp, Righteous Ale and Resin.  With a delicate reformulation for its new canned form, it weighs in with an IBU of 45 and a ABV of 6.0%!  Look out for the Brownstone in its new NanoKeg housing, everywhere Sixpoint is sold.  Some call it delicious, we call it destiny.
