Pastry Style Dark Ale brewed for the Fresh Fest Digi Fest 2020
Some beers need a little polishing before entering the world, while others?the hop-heavy, rowdy crowd-pleasers?should just be left alone. We package Hazy Little Thing in all its raw glory: unfiltered, unprocessed, straight from the tanks and into the can. It?s a swirling cloud that likes to shake things up, a fruit-forward hop adventure for the daring. Go bold and make tonight a hazy one. 6.7% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
Hops are the name of the game with a Double IPA, but we knew we had to take it one step further. With Hop Bullet, we?re using a new technique, hitting the beer with a one-two punch of Magnum hops and lupulin dust?pure, concentrated hop flavor?directly into the tank to emphasize the intense pine and citrus flavors of classic West Coast hops. 8.0% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
Heavy on hops, that was always the brewery plan. So in 1980, we loaded Pale Ale up with Cascade?a new hop at the time named after the mountain range?and the intense aromas of pine and citrus sparked the American craft beer revolution. 5.6% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
It started as a napkin sketch in a pub, an idea for a device that could boost hop aroma without adding more bitterness. We built the sketch, and the ?Hop Torpedo? revolutionized dry hopping and inspired Torpedo Extra IPA. It?s an aggressive yet balanced beer featuring the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone hops. 7.2% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME
We were sixty feet underground when the beer came calling. While sinking tankards in ancient beer caves near the foot of the Alps, inspiration struck ? and at that exact moment, THE CRISP was born. The can in your hand turns obsession to reality. Now that?s Crisp. We went to Germany for this one. (Well went back really: we first devised this beer while counting yeast cells in a German lab, and sinking liters in underground caves.) Anyway, when it comes to German hops, American breweries get the leftovers? the less desirable plots, amalgamated into a ?hop sausage.? Instead, at Sixpoint we go straight to the source for the prime cuts ? the Tettnanger and Hallertau hops in THE CRISP are sourced 100% directly from farmers in Tettnang, Germany. This way we personally select what goes into our beers. Look, legit pilz should have an aroma that leaps from the glass, and the bright, floral aroma of THE CRISP absolutely blasts your nostrils. Follow that up with a crisp, clean finish, and you?ll be sinking this thing by the liter.
The schweat, the rhythmic rocking, and that aroma. We?re talking about the ebb and flow of tides here? ahhh, that glorious brine! Gnarly waves, shooting off mist, just tangy enough to tingle the tastebuds. JAMMER! Let ?er rip. It starts in the backseat of a stifling cab in 2011. We?d just picked up our German Brewmaster from the airport, and it was a hot, schwetty crawl back to the brewery. There?s only one type of formulation for this kind of thirst. Refreshing, spritzy, tangy waves of JAMMER. Back then we did a series called The Mad Scientists? Series, where we?d use some far out ingredient or dig up some ridiculous recipe. These days you see goses everywhere ? in 2011 they were an oddity, and only really old school craft heads even knew what we were talking about. The original was a draft-only brew that barely made it out of NYC? tasty but needed to be dialed in. We?ve been tweakin? that jammer every since, getting the pH level, the salinity, and that coriander aroma just right. We want it tart enough to tingle the tastebuds, but not so sour that you can?t throw back a few. It?s the rooftop jammer you can slam all summer.
We remember our first sip of hoppy beer, do you? Nearly spit that $#!^ out. Now we fantasize about this stuff. Thinking about those hop cones? bursting with juice? ripe as all hell? makes you look forward to that first RESIN all day long. Can?t wait. We?re talking about something called the lupulin shift. Ever heard of it? In nature, bitterness indicates poison. So that first sip of bitter beer doesn?t just offend the palate, it actually inspires fear. But IPA is the most popular style in all of craft beer. So how does that work? At some point, this distaste/fear flips like a switch. The shift can happen over the course of months or over the course of a sixpack, seriously. Then the fear turns to craving. It?s like how pain and pleasure are so closely related. Don?t fear the mysterious power of the hop cone? embrace it. There are insane heights of flavors to be reached in there. Sure it stings, but it feels so good at the same time. Now that your brain?s been shifted, and the siren song of that hoppy RESIN comes calling? we?re left with one question: Did we bring you over to the dark side, or show you the light?
