Sixpoint 3 Beans

The latest experimental brew to make its way out of Red Hook is Sixpoint 3 Beans! For this special project, Sixpoint teamed up with two local artisans, Mast Brothers Chocolate in Brooklyn and Stumptown Coffee in Manhattan, to produce a 10% abv Oak-Aged Baltic Porter that will surely give your tastebuds a jumpstart and have you clamoring for just one more can!

So what are these three beans? With the mention of chocolate and coffee, you’ve probably already figured out what two of them are…but what is that third bean? Well, it’s a Romano bean! Never heard of it? Well, in centuries past, brewers would use Romano beans as a replacement when the supply of barley was limited. The proteins in this bean allowed brewers to create ales with an incredible amount of body. Sixpoint wanted to replicate this richness in their new ale and chose the Romano bean to help them do just that!

To produce 3 Beans, Sixpoint created a mash of both barley and Romano beans and then added in freshly husked cacao bean shells which are chock-full of dark chocolate goodness. After the fermentation was complete, the third component, freshly brewed coffee was then blended in. This heavenly liquid was then transferred to toasted oak barrels where it rested for three weeks before being blended, packaged and shipped over to us!

Complex, rich and silky with intense flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oak, 3 Beans is a celebration of quality local artisan products, as well as a culmination of ancient and modern day brewing techniques and ingredients. And at 10% abv, it is by far the biggest Sixpoint brew to be canned to date! 3 Beans surely won’t last long on shelves and taps, and we don’t know when it will be back again, so be sure to savor it before it’s gone!

3 Beans is now available in 4-pack tallboy cans, 20L and 50L kegs!
