Sixpoint 5 Beans
The latest can drop from Sixpoint Abigale, aka A-BIG-ALE, their first canned Belgian brew.
Expect to find classic dark fruit flavors from the Belgian candi sugar used mixed right in with non-traditional piles of American hops finished off with traditional Belgian yeast.
Now, more than a decade since our first Belgian experiments, we dug through old brewing records and recipes, consulted with monks (over beers), and revitalized the formulation. A-BIG-ALE emerges from the catacombs, captured in 12 oz slim stained-glass cans and on draft across our network.
Sixpoint Abigale is available now in 12oz slim cans across the brewery’s entire network.
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
Availability: 12oz Cans
Release: March, 2015
8% ABV, 52 IBUs
The can population is growing exponentially, and I don’t hear anyone complaining.
Craft breweries have adopted everything from the 12, 16, and the 19.2oz cans. Sixpoint, which already has the slim can, is poised to make a foamy splash with the 24oz “Silo” can.
Artwork has surfaced for a 24oz can design for The Crisp, Sixpoint’s German-style pilsner. For those really bad at math, that’s a full 2 ounces more than the ever popular bomber.
Ball Corporation (One of the largest aluminum can makers) produces a 24oz can, alongside a 25.4oz and 32oz option in the category. The 24oz is seen on the left.
By the looks of it, Sixpoint Craft Ales (Brooklyn, NY) last released a beer dubbed Global Warmer around 2008. Even then, it was draft only. This edition is about 7% ABV, a little over 2% lower than the last release.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
Style: Winter Warmer

Summer draws closer with the return of Sixpoint Apollo. Brewmaster Jan Matysiak trained at Weihenstephaner Institute in Germany, a brewery well know for hefeweizen. The result is one of the best wheat beers you will find in a can.
The unmistakable flavor of a Bavarian Wheat, but with a clear golden brilliance and a Sixpoint twist. An entirely unique canned offering for the sun-worshipping ale lovers.
Sixpoint Craft Ales (Brooklyn, NY) will soon be bringing you coffee & chocolate in a can with 3Beans. Drinking in the AM just got less weird.
Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans.. and put them in one vessel. The beans of bygone brewers, united with cacao and coffee, to create a trinity of roasted, rich, and savory flavors.
