    I like Sixpoint beers and I know that the Vendy Awards were in NYC prior to Philadelphia – but shouldn’t a local brewery be the beer of choice for the event?

    To be fair, Sixpoint contract brews many of their beers at Lion’s (i.e. Lionshead) Brewery in PA. Unfortunately, they switched to Lionshead’s yeast for those beers which have turned many excellent beers (i.e. Bengali Tiger) into total crap. Bella Vista now refuses to so much as stock Sixpoint because of the decline in quality.

    Alex, as the representative of Sixpoint in-market I would like to inform you that your details are off. While I am not one for long dialogues on 3rd party blogs, if you would like details on our brewing practices please email me directly at jdan@sixpoint.com

    We look forward to the event on Thursday and if email is not the best avenue for you please visit our table that night and we can talk beer. Thanks.
