Sixpoint for Time Out NY

A magazine beer collaboration? Yup, that’s right. For the “Beer Issue” Time Out New York worked with Brooklyn’s Sixpoint on a special edition Porter.

The story of this beer is really the TONY story distilled into a pint glass. We chose to start with a porter—a dark style that originated in 18th-century England—as a nod to our roots in London, where Tony Elliott founded Time Out in 1968. But to give the brew a bit of NYC attitude, we asked the Sixpoint team to complement the porter’s rich malts with some serious stateside hops. The result is a transatlantic delight: At once traditionally English and distinctly American, the hybrid has a grassy aroma and a sharp bitterness balanced by smooth dark-chocolate undertones.

20 barrels are hitting the streets… more specifically favored TONY beer bars. Make sure to grab the issue and seek out a pint.
