It’s not often that my job and my blogging hobbies (blobbies, if you will) collide. I work for the Brooklyn Eagle family of newspapers and write about green goings-on in Brooklyn. So when I saw that Sixpoint Craft Ales had a rooftop garden, it couldn’t have been more perfect.
I visited the brewery last Monday and checked out the garden, a project of brewery founder Shane Welch. You can read my story about it here. They grow veggies, herbs and hops.
They brewed two beers that day, one was an oatmeal stout. I didn’t get to taste them, but it was pretty cool being in a brewery and not being on a tour. Though it’s a trek out to Red Hook, I’d say it’s definitely worth it to tour this summer.
