Sixpoint Brewery (Brooklyn, New York) announced this week the release of their new Higher Volume BOOMBOX, a mixed variety 12-pack.
Rocking some of the best packaging design I have seen lately, the Sixpoint Higher Volume BOOMBOXES bring you the perfect option to enjoy all four of the brewery’s core beers in one convenient 12-pack. You will get three of the following beers in each BOOMBOX (descriptions from the brewery’s website):
- Bengali IPA – …While we could suggest what food this beer pairs well with, or which glass to serve it in, the most important thing to remember is: even though we may take beer very seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. It’s Mad Science. ABV – 6.5% IBUs – 69
- The Crisp PILZ – …When the Mad Scientists emerged from underground, the quest for a new formulation went from obsession to reality. What do you get when you fuse old world craftsmanship with new, clean, & bold flavors from right raw materials? The Crisp. It’s Mad Science. ABV – 5.4% IBUs – 44
- Resin Imperial IPA – Resin is an ode to the sticky quintessence of hops – we extracted the alluring nectar from every precious citrus, pine, dank and herbal cone and channeled it all into one vessel. Now that’s Mad Science. ABV – 9.1% IBUs – 103
- Sweet Action Ale – …Through all of the madness emerged an undefinable beer called Sweet Action; a beer that your brain cannot categorize but instead speaks directly to your palate. Our senses and intuition sometimes trump rational thought. It’s Mad Science. ABV – 5.2% IBUs – 34
Getting back to the packaging design I mentioned before, the folks at Sixpoint Brewery certainly took this one seriously and applied their “Mad Science” approach to provide their fans with some cool features. Not only will the sweet BOOMBOX themed design inspire you to throw it on your shoulder whenever you are carrying it around, but the “speakers” also detach to supply you with some handy coasters on the fly. Also, they took the musical theme to another level by tapping a few friends with diverse musical tastes to create the following Spotify playlists/mixtapes inspired by each beer: the Bengali IPA mixtape is a “roaring metal set” created by Sixpoint’s NYC Sales Chief Adam “That’s Metal” Zuniga; The Crisp PILZ playlist comes from DJ “Jersey” Dan Bisogno who pulled together a mix of “smooth, timeless classics”; Adrian “DJ Mr. Brown” Marquez put together some “dub beats” for the mixtape for Resin IIPA; and the Sweet Action Ale mix comes by way of Chances With Wolves, an epic DJ crew that made a playlist of over two hours of “old school jams”. If you would like to get in on the mixtape action, there is also a shared Higher Volume playlist available for Sixpoint fans to add their own musical pairings to their favorite brews.
Look for these Higher Volume BOOMBOXES to start hitting shelves soon at your favorite craft beer-friendly retailers in Alabama and throughout Sixpoint’s distribution area. Make sure to grab one of these variety 12-packs and jam out to some killer tunes with the Spotify mixtapes at your next party or gathering. Prost!
