local suds: Sixpoint Brewing

May 9, 2017 | posted by kyle

"founded in 2004; born at the dawn of civilization" claims the popular Brooklyn-based brewery, Sixpoint. Created to push the boundaries on the overall perception + styles of beer, Sixpoint has since established itself as one of Brooklyn's finest breweries, with almost every Brooklyn bar offering some variation of their brews on tap (you'd be hard-pressed to find a bar that doesn't carry SWEET ACTION—their staple cream ale/pale ale hybrid). The team at Sixpoint was even nice enough to provide the local suds for our Brooklyn FoodWorks pop-up dinner a few months back.

picture this—you're on a refurbished pier along the Lower Hudson River seated in a lounge chair, iced beverage in hand, as the New York City skyline glows a crimson gold from the fading light of a summer sunset. Thanks to Darren Conway this dreamlike scenario has become a reality. Darren, alongside his Managing Partner Rebecca Tarantino, has spent the last few years working to bring a lively, summer retreat to the Hoboken waterfront in the form of Pier 13.

Philadelphia's hometown brewery, Yards, began as many great ideas do — in a dorm room + amongst friends. Since then it has become the staple beer in every Philly-area bar. We met with Yards' Founder, Owner + Head Brewer, Tom Kehoe, to talk all things brewed and sudsy (including one of our new stir-fry sauces, Yards Brawler au jus) as well as how the company plans to "Brew Unto Others" to give even more to the Philadelphia community.
