Sixpoint Brewery at Healthy Spirits

Sixpoint Brewery will be joining us at our Cortland and Clement stores this week and we couldn’t be more excited. Come by Cortland Wednesday (3/21) from 5:30-7:30 and Clement Thursday (3/22) from 5-7 and taste some of their delicious and innovative brews.

Sixpoint Brewery is located in Brooklyn, New York and rarely do they personally make it out to the West Coast, even though you can always find their beers on our shelves. “Beer is Culture” is their motto and they embody that with their philosophy and the beer they produce. Sixpoint maintains a huge respect for the history and traditions of beer while embracing modern innovation.

Tomorrow and Thursday Sixpoint will be pouring a selection of four beers at each store and we’ll have their Bengali IPA, C.R.E.A.M (blonde coffee ale), Sweet Action (hoppy cream ale), Resin IIPA, HI-Res IIIPA and The Crisp (pilsner) available for purchase.

Don’t miss out. Sixpoint makes some truly excellent beer. While we on the West Coast think we own the IPA style, the powerful, resiny, hoppiness that shows through in Sixpoint’s line of IPAs (Bengali, Resin, and Hi-Res) would put a lot of West Coast IPAs to shame. I love the fact they dry-hop their beers with fresh hops, it gives them that extra piney kick. But don’t take my word for it, come try their beers (for free) and taste for yourself.


Beer Week at Healthy Spirits

Beer Week is here and we’ve got some great stuff planned at Healthy Spirits. Stop by for tastings  at our Cortland and Clement stores (schedule at the bottom of this post),a pub-crawl at our Cortland store, an exclusive release with El Segundo, special pricing and cellar releases.

We are super excited to be carrying an exclusive release from our friends over at El Segundo Brewing Company. The first in a series of collaborations, “Beer Bros. Level 1” is a double IPA brewed with Red X, a base malt that adds great color and body, and Vic Secret hops, an Australian variety close in flavor to Galaxy. All three stores will have “Level 1” and another great offering from El Segundo, their Bistro Triple IPA Festival winning “Power Plant”.

Our Castro store will be featuring Cellar Releases and special pricing all week. Releases from the Cellar will include beers from The Lost Abbey, Firestone-Walker, Stone, Goose Island, Boulevard, Oude Beersel and whatever else we decide to dig out. Stay tuned to our social media (or better yet come talk to us!) for Cellar updates.

Cortland is participating in a pub crawl, Bernal Beerlands, with some of our friends from the neighborhood. Customers will be given a “Beer Passport” that can be stamped at Old Devil Moon, Barebottle Brewing, Old Bus Tavern, Holy Water, BEL and of course Healthy Spirits. Get a stamp with your first drink at each location, get four stamps and receive a free glass and either a free beer (at locations that can pour) or 35% off either a 22oz-bomber or a 6-pack at Healthy Spirits. Bernal Beerlands starts Tuesday the 14th and runs through Sunday the 19th. Check out our facebook here for full event details.
