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

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.
