US-based Sixpoint Brewery will build a new brewery and taproom in Gowanus, Brooklyn, New York, with plans for the establishment to open next May.

The new 20,000ft² facility will feature a production brewing system, bar and a full-service kitchen, as well as two beer gardens, one at the street level and another on the rooftop.

Sixpoint brewmaster Eric Bachli said: “This has been a long time coming and we’re making sure we do it right. We’re working with Braukon, one of the most highly regarded manufacturers of brewing equipment in the world, on the buildout of their first brewery installation in New York City.

“We will have a mix of horizontal lager tanks and cylindroconical vessels to brew an expansive range of ales and lagers.

“There is a coolship, horizontal foeders, a dedicated kettle souring vessel and a barrel programme to give our team great flexibility in style and taste profile as we build innovative new beers.”

Established in 2004 by Shane Welch, Sixpoint’s brands such as Resin, Sweet Action and Jammer were only available on draught across bars and restaurants in New York.

Located on the corner of 9th Street and 2nd Avenue in Brooklyn, Sixpoint’s full-service taproom and rooftop bar will have 30 taps.

The project is being developed by Industries Capital Partners (ICP).

ICP principal Joseph Hamway said: “We are very excited to welcome Sixpoint brewery to this amazing creative office and retail project in Gowanus.

“Sixpoint is an ideal tenant for this cool neighbourhood and will become the epicentre in the Gowanus area for experiential retail and creativity.”
