Philly Beer Week

A Note from the Desk of  “Jersey” Dan Bisogno Sixpoint Regional Brand Rep & Proud Philadelphia Resident

Every New Years Day as a kid I would look forward to hearing Keith Jackson kick off the telecast of college football’s Rose Bowl game by calling it “The Grandaddy of Them All”. When it comes to Beer-Week celebrations, which now take place in over 30 American cities, Phillly BeerWeek is the equivalent of the Rose Bowl. This year is the 5th annual, and our 4th at Sixpoint (my 3rd!). The evolution of this festival has been incredible to watch. I recall a damp Wednesday night in March 2008 going to Smuttynose Brewery’s Mustache Bash at South Philly Taproom and thinking how fun it was that there was a series of unique events featuring incredible beer at a few of the best beer-bars in town for a week. Five years later 1100+ events in 90+ establishments all gets packed into 10 days of beer-soaked glory. This year Sixpoint has our largest showing at PBW to date, with 8 headlining events & 7 group events. This Tumblr page is a catch-all site for all our events. We’ll feature event info, tap-lists, and liveblogging from every event! We hope you can join us for a pint (or 2!) along the way.

  • Oh, What a Teeling! Fort Defiance Goes Bang! Bang!

    The Teeling/Sixpoint Bang Bang Dudley tour rolls on as we visit our neighbors at Fort Defiance in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Mixologist extraordinaire St. John Frizell has concocted a special Teeling Whiskey cocktail just for this evening.

    We worked with Teeling Whiskey to create the Bang Bang Dudley Ale, using their distinctive Irish Whiskey barrels that once housed bourbon and rum before making their way to Dublin. With the unique character of barrels from the only operating distillery in Dublin, and Irish stylistic origins, you can think of this beer as an "Irish-style Barleywine" created in the heart of BKLYN.

    $10 gets you a Bang Bang Dudley beer and a shot of Teeling Whiskey or a 3-ounce shot of beer and a Teeling Whiskey cocktail.

    Peeps from both companies will be doing their thing so come on out!
