WILK Friday BeerBuzz–3 Feb 2012 Sixpoint Resin DIPA w/Shane Welch

WILKFridayBeerbuzz4Every week we welcome a great guest on the Friday BeerBuzz and every week I’m amazed at how passionate our guests are about not only their own beer, but also about craft beer in general.

Back in December I crossed paths with today’s guest in Northeastern PA and after talking for only 5-minutes, I knew he’d be a great guest.  Shane Welch is the President of Sixpoint Craft Ales in Brooklyn and a great spokesman for craft beer.  Earlier that day I had just published 15+ NEW Sixpoint keg label approvals, and I joked with Shane asking if they were all actually real beers or just placeholders for a future brew.  I should have known better!  Of course they were all real and of course there were even more beers to follow that week.

It was great talking to Shane about the origins of Sixpoint Craft Ales, and about the originals of their six-pointed star logo.  Who knew that the 6-point star was a early mark for craftsmanship in brewing?  I think it’s a perfect fit AND a great story.

The Friday BeerBuzz crew are all professional hoppy-beer lovers…so it was an easy choice when we were choosing a Sixpoint beer.  Sixpoint Resin DIPA is brand spanking new and at 9.1%ABV & 103 IBU it is right up our alley.  Loaded with classic hops like Columbus, Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade, & Chinook; Resin tastes just like it’s name BUT it has a decidedly malty backbone which is pleasant and rare for a DIPA.  Packed with resinous hops and loaded with great malty flavor…it has a wonderful balance.  Resin is one of new Brewmaster Jan Matysiak first brews at Sixpoint and I think it came out great.  It’s also interesting that Resin is packaged in 12oz skinny-tall cans.  It’s a great package and holds JUST the right amount of beer, especially for such a big beer.

Sixpoint Craft Ales will soon be imported into PA so stay tuned AND try this one for yourself.  


to Shane Welch from Sixpoint Craft Ales, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
