It's been a long time coming, but Sixpoint Brewery is finally coming to Ohio. The Brooklyn-based craft beer brewery is launching in Ohio starting next week with events in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland. Sixpoint makes some of the best beers I've had, including Bengali Tiger (IPA), Resin (IIPA), Sweet Action (Cream Ale), and some amazing seasonals and one-offs. No confirmation on exactly what beers will be available in Ohio or in what form, but tap lists from the launch events indicate we'll see at least Bengali Tiger, Sweet Action, Resin, Spice of Life Series, and Righteous on draft, and hopefully in thier "nano-kegs". Fingers crossed we'll get some of the seasonal brews as well, especially the fabulous Autumnation.
Sixpoint will be distributed by Cavalier Distributing in Ohio.
