New Styles Available for the Winter

The month of December traditionallly brings colder temperatures and a crazy holiday shopping season.  This year, however, it also brings two new styles to Six Row to help warm us up and relax after circling a packed parking lot for hours.

We are bringing back an old favorite on Friday as our Honey Weizen will be available again.  If you didn't get a chance to try this style the first time around, our brewmaster, Evan, provides this description:

The Honey Weizen is an easy drinking wheat beer made with a generous portion of honey from Missouri Honey in Florissant, Missouri! With a combination of white wheat malt, honey malt, and locally produced honey, the unfiltered Honey Weizen is a great example of a traditional wheat beer with a twist. The sweetness of the honey is balanced by Saaz hops, sure to please the discerning wheat beer lover and craft beer novice alike.

(ABV: 5.2%, Bitterness Units: 17.5 IBUs, Color: 8.0, Original Gravity: 12.30 degrees Plato)
We also have our winter style, the Belgian Dubbel, on tap after debuting at our birthday celebration last weekend.

Inspired by the Trappist beers of Belgium, the Six Row Dubbel is a rich, malty interpretation of the style. Historically, the Dubbel is brewed to have a higher alcohol content (6-8%ABV) compared to other Belgian beers and can be compared to, but is still stronger, than a Brown Ale. Loads of dark fruit, caramel, and malt flavours dominate this early winter warmer. Just enough noble hop bitterness is added to balance out the sweetness and provide a bit of aroma. Serving the Dubbel in a snifter further enhances the aroma.

Vrolijk Kerstfeest en een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! (Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!)

Six Row Birthday Bash

It is hard to believe that almost a year has gone by in the life of Six Row Brewing Company. In December 2009, Six Row officially opened its doors and started serving up some great styles of beer including our own signature style, the Whale (wheat-pale ale hybrid).

Over the past year, we have thoroughly enjoyed serving our customers some exceptional beers and doing our best to provide a friendly, relaxing atmosphere for them to imbibe all of the great styles that Evan and Jason have brewed. 

To celebrate our first year and to thank our customers for the tremendous support they have shown us, we will be having a birthday party for ourselves on Saturday, December 4th, featuring:

  • Drink deals
  • Food deals
  • Special cask tapping
  • Commemorative glasses
  • Special Musical Guests: Less Cowbell (AKA More Cowbell going acoustic)
  • Free birthday cake (while it lasts)

More details to follow, but mark your calendars to help us celebrate Six Row's birthday!
