Just Tapped: Sixpoint Belgian Double IPA

Posted in Coming Soon or Just Tapped with tags on November 26, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Last night we tapped a Keg of Sixpoint‘s Belgian Double IPA at 10.2% abv.  This is apparently a really rare brew (only three reviews on  This is a hyrbid style of a strong Belgian Style Ale and Double IPA.  This beer is hop forward as you would expect from a strong IPA, yet is extremely drinkable.  This beer was flowing last night, and we don’t expect it to stick around for long.  Get down to Burp Castle and have a taste…while you can.

NYC Homebrewers Guild Meeting: Tuesday November 18, 2008

Posted in News and Events with tags , on November 17, 2008 by flyingbroccoli

Tomorrow, November 18th, is the November meet of the NYC Homebrewers Guild.   The meeting starts around 7:30.  There will be a representative from Sixpoint Craft Ales on hand speaking to the Guild, and our patrons.  Maybe we will hear a little about the Sixpoint bottling plant opening in Williamsburg that Brooklyn Paper mentioned?

Burp Castle is open to the Public during the Guild meetings, and welcomes our patrons learn about beer and brewing from the Homebrewers and their Speaker.  It’s sure to be a good time.



GO VOTE! and then come to Burp Castle (and Standings!)

After you Vote tomorrow make your way to Burp Castle. We will have NPR Election coverage on the Radio all night (starting at 7pm)! and if you want to see what is going on via CNN you can pop next door and grab a wonderful domestic craft brew at Standings (43 E. 7th Street) and take it in on the big screen. Our good friends at Standings sent out this email to let us know about their event:

Join us this TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH (from 6 PM) for our ELECTION ’08 PARTY!!! (CNN COVERAGE WITH SOUND).We’ll have brews representing each candidate such as the SIXPOINT HOP OBAMA and ROGUE OLD CRUSTY. Ideally, HILLARY CLINTON will be on hand to pour the HOP OBAMA in a true showing of party unity. We have also extended an invitation to JOE WURZELBACHER to serve the OLD CRUSTY, however, his STAFF informed us that he will be applying for a plumbers license that evening (apparently it’s what REAL AMERICANS do on Election Night)…

I don’t know how you fall politically, but most of us are hoping this elections goes one way and not the other. Hopefully we will be celebrating.
