The best brewhouses in the nation—featuring the tastiest pints you'll ever sip, from seasonal beers to extra hoppy IPAs.
Sixpoint Brewery, Brooklyn, NY
Founded by former homebrewer Shane Welch in 2004, Sixpoint has since become one of Brooklyn's most beloved institutions. This has to do as much with their creative brews—beers like Diesel, a dark rich blend that has elements of both a stout and an IPA—as it does their community involvement. Sixpoint is known for incorporating locally sourced ingredients into its offerings, supplying its Red Hook neighborhood's homebrewers with yeast (in exchange for a few of the resulting brews), and hosting worthwhile happenings. Among the more popular: their annual Beer for Beasts tasting event, from which all proceeds go to the Humane Society of NYC. (sixpoint.com)
