Sixpoint Launches "Bourbon Barrel Imperial Otis" and Crowd Goes Wild

    I was just looking at the Sixpoint app map for the Imperial Otis and noticed that One Mile House pin on the map was east of the Top Hops Beer Shop pin in Manhattan. It should be the other way around. First I thought the pin labels were reversed but when I zoomed in the map, I noticed that the address of One Mile House was pinned to the wrong address (incorrect on Grand St.) on the map (the written address was correct though). Hope the Sixpoint rep can get this fixed for the people not familiar with that part of the city. Also double check the pin placement for future since this appears to be done manually. Thanks.

    Distribution of this beer was extremely limited. That said, we did manage to sprinkle this around every market, even it it meant just a couple of kegs. Please check in with the local wholesaler for more details. thank you

  8. I know you mentioned using the app, but nothing is popping up here in CT. Any ideas if we landed anything?

    I was able to try this at the Blue Point cask festival. Really impressive beer and just as smooth as Otis.

    Non-tragic - we are pouring Apollo on draft all summer. Look for a *new* release coming out in cans :)

    Excited for the new release! But Apollo was by far my favorite summer seasonal of any brewery last year loved having it in cans. Keep pumpin out good stuff though

    Stag's Head in Manhattan has BBA otis on (they're just calling it imperial otis).

    Fuckin bangin. This is a beer to make again.

    Also have BBA 3 beans which honestly is very good but not much better than normal 3beans (which is underrated and awesome). Nice warm oaky background but it's still mostly coffee and roasted malt.

    BBA otis though, the oatmeal stout is like "bourbon barrel, where have you been all my life?" And the bourbon barrel is like "my mission is to protect you. I cannot jeopardize my mission. Where's John Connor?"

    Awesome, glad you liked it. We plan on offering beers like this for growler fills at the brewery soon. More on that later. :)

    Did this make it to Texas (BBA Imperial Otis)?
  24. Any of this make it into CT? There are several craft beer places local (Walrus & Carpenter, Craft 260, Gingerman, Cask Republic) that would be pretty grand places for this to end up...
