Come and join us at Fairfield or Eastgate for our final Pint Night of April! We’ll be featuring brews from Southern Tier and West Sixth Brewing Company!
Fairfield - Southern Tier Brewing
Southern Tier Brewing Company of Lakewood, New York, has grown to produce more than 100,000 barrels of beer annually. The hand crafted ales are now available in more than thirty States and points beyond.
Southern Tier History
Founders Phineas DeMink and Allen “Skip” Yahn started the brewery with the vision of reviving the practice of small batch brewing to a region rich in brewing tradition. In 2002, with equipment gained from the purchase of the Old Saddleback Brewing Co. in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the Southern Tier Brewing Company began production in the Stoneman Business Park just outside of Lakewood, New York. By 2003, select varieties of small batch ales were locally distributed, and by 2005, sales covered the majority of New York State and Pennsylvania. Before launching a successful roster of seasonal beers, the brewery produced Pilsner, Mild Ale, and India Pale Ale.
Southern Tier immediately garnered regional attention and demand for the product quickly outgrew what their modest facility could handle. In 2009 a new 20,000 square foot building was built for the purpose of brewing innovative, high-quality beer to accommodate an expanding customer base. In this new facility, the small brewery was able to grow and offer the product both nationally and internationally, while still satisfying its loyal fans.
Tomorrow in Fairfield we will be featuring the following beers: 3 Citrus Peel, Nu Skool IPA, Lemon Drop, 2x Unfiltered IPA
Eastgate - West Sixth Brewing
West Sixth are our friendly neighbors to the south, in Lexington, KY! We are lucky to get some of their core beers such as IPA, Amber Ale, Lemongrass Wheat and Pay It Forward Cocoa Porter in Ohio, along with a small selection of their seasonal beers. If you ever make it down to their brewery, it also features barrel aging program which is rather expansive. Sadly those beers don’t make it up here. Luckily, Lexington isn’t too far!
About West Sixth
“Founded in 2012, we’re a craft microbrewery located in a historic 100-year-old bakery called The Bread Box on West 6th Street in Lexington, Kentucky. We brew and can our beer out of that location, and it’s sold at bars, restaurants, grocery stores and liquor stores throughout the state of Kentucky (and across the river in Cincinnati, OH). We pride ourselves on the beers that we make and the impact we have on the communities we’re a part of.
We focus our brewing talents on a wide variety of beers – we produce and can styles ranging from our flagship West Sixth IPA, to our Pay it Forward Cocoa Porter. In our taprooms in downtown Lexington, we have 15-20 West Sixth varieties on tap, along with occasional special bottle releases from our Sixfold and Barrel-aged series. Now a team of more than 40, we focus on brewing beers with quality and creativity that we’re proud to serve to our friends, and most importantly, that we like to drink!”
Tomorrow in Eastgate we will be featuring the following beers: Tansy Brandy Triple, IPA, Blonde Ale, Amber Ale, and Smithtown Brown Ale
