Sixpoint was founded in 2004 (we like to say it was born at the dawn of civilization, though that’s a story for another time…) in the rough and tumble neighborhood of Red Hook, BKLYN. It was essentially a cult brewery — draft-only, mysterious, cryptic…
The Sixpoint Star is an amalgamation of the Nautical Star and the German Brauerstern, two symbols deep in the Sixpoint DNA.
The Nautical Star is plastered around Red Hook, BKLYN, an homage to its hearty roots as a port town. It was an old sailor’s symbol, regarded in myth for its ability to guide ships home safely. The German Brauerstern was an ancient mark of quality for German Brewers, and the official symbol of the Brewer’s Guild, one of the first trade guilds in Europe.
Put the two together and you have a symbol of two-fold power… look for the Sixpoint Star to guide you directly to great beer.
