As of March 5th, 2014 Sixpoint beer will be available in hundreds of British pubs following a partnership inked with the pub chan JD Wetherspoon. But the biggest news for local fans of the Brooklyn-based craft brewery is that it is exporting 12-ounce stubby “nanokegs” of Sweet Action, Bengali Tiger, and Crisp to England—not the 16-ounce nanokegs we’re used to seeing here.
The brand has also been working with Southwold’s Adnams brewery to produce cask ale in the English style. Sixpoint has started making Bengali Tiger and Righteous Ale in cask format, and the brewery recently crafted a brand new recipe, “Make It Rain,” that’s packed with loads of new world hops. “The Real Ale fans of Britain have started to take notice,” states Sixpoint’s blog.
The brewery will be taking a country-wide English tour, traveling with samples to introduce Brits to the new beer.
If you are desperate to secure a stubby of Sixpoint to stash in your pocket, you best get your arse to England—the 12-ounce cans will not be available stateside.
