In this blog, Sixpoint Brownstone will be featured in this latest edition. If you read my earlier blog on Sixpoint beers, you are pretty up to speed on this brewery. If you have not, please, go back and read the first part of that blog. Let us get into the beer.
Sixpoint Brownstone has a brown color with a heavy carbonation to the beer. It has a sweet malty smell to the beer. The brown ale has a sweet malty taste with a nice malty aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable for being a dark beer. Most general beer drinkers see a dark beer and believe it is not drinkable. In some cases, some dark beers can be drinkable more then their golden to white looking beers.
Here is description from the beer can:
…..and coming out of the brownstone house to the gray sidewalk, the watered street, one side of the buildings rises with the sun like a glistening field of wheat. Brownstone is our bedrock; the first fortress of Sixpoint. Mahogany malt and balanced bitterness is our home.
Here is a descripition from their website (www.sixpoint.com):
…and coming out of the brownstone house to the gray sidewalk, the watered street, one side of the buildings rises with the sun like a glistening field of wheat.Brownstone is our bedrock; the first fortress of Sixpoint. This mahogany-hued brew has elements of roasted barley and a hop-forward profile.
Closing out the blog, I really enjoy drinking beers from Sixpoint Brewery. I am glad that they are in Chicago market. I love how this brewery takes a classic beer style and put their twist on it. It gives the craft beer drinker a new drinking experience. To me, this is one of the best brown ales on the market. My two favorite brown ales are this one from Sixpoint and Brooklyn. The thing is that they are two different twist on the same beer style. I would think it would be nice if Sixpoint, Bronx Brewery, and Brooklyn Brewery should do a beer together. It should be called New York Gangster Take Me Down Ale. I do not know. I am thinking out loud in words on this blog. Sixpoint did a great job on their new can beer, which is Brownstone. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
