Sixpoint NYC Beer Week Night February 27!

From the horse's mouth:

We are eminently (or imminently?) psyched for our mostly annual NYCBW Pacific Standard lots-of-taps event. The two Jo(h)ns, who started their Sixpoint fixation when they were roommates with a kegerator, a metrocard pass, and the old B77 bus line, have been proudly stocking our beer since they opened the Pacific Standard. For this night, we have specially-made custom Sixpoint/Pacific Standard mash-up pint glasses. Buy two Sixpoint beers and take the glass home. The beers will include Hi-Res, Gorilla Warfare, the Crisp, Seison, barrel-aged cask-conditioned Imperial Otis (!!!), and Spice of Life Sorachi Ace.
