Sixpoint-Cans-October-2019

Sixpoint Brewery will be releasing the last cans in their current taproom this weekend. After that, the brewery is taking a release hiatus until they move into their new brewery and taproom in Gowanus in Brooklyn, New York.

That taproom has seen 26 can releases. 65 new beer releases. This weekend, Sixpoint wraps it all up with three special releases.

On October 26th, Mega Raspy, The Mayor, and Double Oaked Master Blend will be available

  • Mega Raspy – A “mega” edition inspired by the previous Raspy releases. Mega Raspy is described as an “insane” berry medley that is a big 10% ABV
  • The Mayor – Imperial IPA, brewed in honor of Mark Speigel, the “Mayor of Sixpoint” that has been to nearly every Sixpoint release. Mark passed away last year. A hazy IPA with Idaho 7, Galaxy, Mandarina, Simcoe, and Centennial.
  • Double Oaked Master Blend – Brewed in collaboration with Jameson and the Caskmates Program. A 14.5% double aged imperial stout.

All Chinook hops: Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9 joins the ongoing imperial IPA series in October.

The Alpha Abstraction Series is designed to highlight a specific hop varietal. This edition is built on Michigan grown Chinook hops. While this particular hop is known to be big on pine flavors with hints of pineapple, this particular crop is the reverse- pineapple first, with hints of pine.

“With Michigan Chinook, we are finding that those flavors have almost flipped, and we are getting a much sweeter result with a strong pineapple essence.” – Chris Elliott, Head Brewer

Wild Leap Alpha Abstraction Vol 9 is available in 12-ounce cans and draft for a limited time.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: October 2019

8% ABV

Stone’s 23rd Anniversary release is coming this week. Hint, it’s hoppy

Stone 23rd Uncanny Anni Double IPA

Stone 23rd Uncanny Anni Double IPA releases in the coming week, a celebration of 23 years of craft brewing. 

Over the years, Stone Brewing’s anniversary releases have covered a plethora of styles. The 5th Anniversary release was an IPA, followed by a porter on the 6th. 12th was Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, and 15th a Black IPA. Some years it was an IPA with all German hops and malts, others all Austrailian, there was even hazy IPA in there somewhere.

“Bridge Collapsing” Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta makes summer appearance

Monday Night Don't Call It Hotlanta can

Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta returns for a hoppy start to August. 

Last year, the brewery’s Black Tie Series became home to this quadruple dry-hopped imperial India pale ale, brewed with Columbus, Citra, and Galaxy hops. According to the brewery, it’s a “bridge collapsing” 8.5% alcohol by volume. Don’t know what that means by bridge collapsing in Atlanta? Google it. It was truly a shitshow.

With the unpredictability of Atlanta’s spring weather, this cloudy double IPA pops with sunny tropical notes on the nose. It drinks dank and finishes with a bit of bitterness, much like an Atlanta sports fan.

Monday Night Don’t Call It Hotlanta will be available once again in a new 16-ounce can format and draft for a limited time starting July 26th.

Drink it in good health… and don’t call it  “Hotlanta”.

Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra, Galaxy, Columbus
Malts: Pilsner, 2-Row, Flaked Oats

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 4/29/18
Latest Return: 8/2/19

8.5% ABV
