Sixpoint Fans Rejoice: Craft Brewery’s Signature Beers Debut in Delaware

Posted September 5, 2012 by in


Brooklyn-based Sixpoint Brewery is making a big entrance into Delaware market with a series of launch events at retail establishments throughout September.

Standard Distributing Company, Delaware’s oldest and largest beer distributor, is pleased to announce the debut of Sixpoint Brewery’s signature line of craft ales in Delaware. Sixpoint Brewery was founded in 2004 in an 800-square-foot garage within the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. In 8 years, the company has grown into a fine 16,000-square-foot, 25,000-barrel-a-year craft brewery with an ever-expanding distribution network.

Many of Sixpoint Brewery’s craft ales are very popular and have inspired “wants’ on beer fans’ trade lists,” said Steve Tigani, vice president of Standard Distributing.

“Now, beer enthusiasts throughout Delaware can purchase Sixpoint’s signature core beers in cans and on draft at local retailers throughout the state.”

These five quality beer brands include Bengali Tiger (featuring an abundance of citrus hop bitterness, and a full pine and grapefruit bouquet in the aroma), Righteous Ale (made with rye malt and seasoned with dry-hopped with herbal and citrus hops), Sweet Action (part pale ale, part wheat, part cream ale), Resin (a beer that celebrates the extraction of hop resin for a concentrated yet balanced brew), and The Crisp (brewed with noble hops for indelible crisp flavor).
