    yes

    Sounds like a tasting room is not an option then for you ;-) Plenty of cabs available!

    Also, nothing like a fresh growler straight from the brewery....

    Can't remember who said it like that, but it's actually a joke on the homeboy way of saying for sure...

    went to PS last night, had the Imperial Otis, Gorilla Warfare, and Seison. All incredible, and the pint glass is pretty nice as well

    Make sure we are open before you make the trek out there. We're doing renovations now so its not open to the public.

    In AND around your mouth? We should get you a bib! ;-)

    any more pints and I would've been done in, but this is awesome

    how long until the brewery is tour-able/visit-able? I get my work van repaired in red hook (seemingly every other week now...) and it would be a way better time killer than going to a coffee shop

    Haha, you must be getting your van repaired by Phil over at American Quik Start.....good dude.

    The reopen date is a bit of a moving target, so please join our email list for updates and we'll announce it through that medium.

    Available for them to order - ask your favorite bar to do it!

    You've got to use "The Crowd Goes Wild" as a beer name in the near future.

    I only see it in Brooklyn.

    Is it hitting Manhattan?

    reach out to jdan@sixpoint.com

    right now there is not enough liquid to do that....perhaps in the future though

    you'll just have to visit more often :)

    of course - but BKLYN gets first dibs :)

    As long as we get it eventually. Don't get me wrong; I'd still make a special trip for it, but Manhattan would be much more convenient.

    We got Bolshoi in a couple of places (super yummycakes), so that was nice. Can't wait to try the Imperial Otis.

    I would be happy with just a non barrel aged version in a can.

    hmmm...not sure about that! I don't believe a coconut version was ever brewed!

    Bourbon Barrel Imperial Otis is in Manhattan now. However, I tried it in Queens (Astoria) at Crescent and Vine bar. The Sixpoint beer finder app doesn't show it in Queens, only several places in Brooklyn and one bar in Manhattan. Anyway, glad I tried it. It was good and deceptively strong.

    No love for Mass with this one? :(

    (according to your beer finder app. Was hoping to find a restaurant with this tapped somewhere)

    Flying into JFK in late June and then driving up to CT for a few days. Any chance there will be some left at the brewery or maybe in Manhattan?

    MA got theirs!

    it will probably be gone by then...

    I still can't locate any using the beer finder. I did a search for the entire state of Mass.

    It might just mean that they did not send any out to accounts yet.

    sweet. I was worried it had come and gone. I will remain vigilent in my search henceforth!
