New York City Craft Beer Week begins Friday, February 22nd— a week dedicated to New York’s finest beverage. It’s full of tastings, hang outs, good food and the best beer the city has to offer. The kickoff event, with samples, food and live music, is at Galapagos Art Space. There will be Sixpoint tap takeovers throughout the week, and they’re a great chance to try some of the more difficult to find offerings or to go through a flight of the classics. The Growler in Manhattan is all Sixpoint all the time during beer week, with eight Sixpoint taps every day.
All the events have great brews, but Beer Week is also a great chance to meet and hang out with the Sixpoint team. Check out Brewer’s Choice, where you’ll get special offerings presented by the brewers themselves, alongside a food pairing of chocolate, cheese or charcuterie. Pete Dickson, Head Brewer at Sixpoint, will be there with some good eats and a bunch of Sixpoint offerings, and to answer any questions you may have.
Women’s Night, a gathering of female brewers, sales reps and members from all departments, offers a similar opportunity. Three Sixpoint ladies will be in attendance: Representative Kristen Ridenour, Brewer Heather McReynolds and Sixpoint GM Meg McIntyre. Look out for other Sixpointers filtering in and out of events throughout the week.
The Ataraxia Winter Warmer, Sixpoint’s new, draft-only release, will be on tap at The Modern, in addition to six other Sixpoint offerings, suggested food pairings and complimentary Alsatian flatbreads.
The Aporkalypse, at the Alewife, is an epic event—specialty chefs, ten carved hogs, and beer from more than twenty breweries to wash it down. To close out the week there are brunches at Beer Authority and Eataly, with Sixpoint pints for 5$.
