Meet Our Brooklyn Brewery Partner
For the first time, Jameson Caskmates Irish Whiskey and Sixpoint Brewery are collaborating to bring barrel-aged beers to New York's neighborhoods. Using whiskey barrels shipped from the Jameson distillery in Midleton, Ireland, Pontoon Brewing has created a series of limited edition brews you won’t want to miss.
The Caskmates program is awesome—it’s opened us up to new and wider experimentation using a component we’ve dabbled with in the past, Irish Whiskey Barrels. The notes of caramel, wood, smoke, and spice add a new dimension to our beers, and our focus on innovating (especially making three different beers with the same barrels) led us to experiment across profiles and come up with some incredible beers. With a double oaked Imperial Stout, a fruited sour, and an Imperial IPA with experimental hops dry-hopped post aging, we really went all out for these beers!
Sixpoint is from Red Hook, Brooklyn, a rough and tumble neighborhood tucked against the Hudson on the west side of the borough. It’s unique in character and revels in that uniqueness… all the best bars and restaurants here are funky and one-of-a-kind.
