Hey Philly: Make way for Sixpoint Craft Ales. The venerable brewery that’s arguably the best thing to arrive in Brooklyn since Garret Oliver set up shop there, will take over the taps at City Tap House for the weekend. It’s the first in a series of pop-up brewery events that the University City beer-obsessed bar and restaurant is hosting in its private beer lounge. Tonight through Sunday night, Sixpoint will pour an impressive selection of beers, some rare and others (even more rare) that have never been offered in Philly before. Tonight Sixpoint beers start flowing at 7 p.m.
Tomorrow, the Tap House and its downstairs neighbor Capogiro are teaming up to produce an exclusive Brownstone Brown Ale-flavored galato to celebrate Sixpoint rep and Philly promo guru Jersey Dan’s birthday.
On Sunday Sixpoint founder Shane Welch and his brewers will lead a homebrewing class with a question-and-answer session. Throughout the remainder of the day all Sixpoint draughts will be priced at $4 a pint until the kick.
The Sixpoint lineup includes:
Enterprise, a Belgian Rye Ale, making its Philadelphia debut
Bark Red Ale, a red ale brewed exclusively for Bark Hot Dogs
Vienna Pale Ale
Old Krusher Barleywine, the last keg of it in Philly
Pumpkin Brewster, a pumpkin saison, also the last keg in Philly
Brownstone, and American brown ale
Otis Oatmeal Stout
Bengali Tiger IPA
Sehr Crisp Pilsner
