Sixpoint Brewing has landed a tap takeover in Miami and will attempt to empty all of its 33 kegs this Thursday, October 9, at both Kush in Wynwood and Lokal in Coconut Grove.

To sample all the brews without having to drive, take the Miami Brew Bus, which will taxi participants to both bars. A Sixpoint keg will be on board to make the ride interesting. Tickets for the brew bus cost $10, which includes unlimited rides on the bus plus one pint of brew for the road. The takeover itself runs from 7 to 10:30 p.m.

Sixpoint brewmaster Heather McReynolds will be around and might even pour your pint. Originally from Gainesville, Florida, McReynolds has been working with Sixpoint as a brewmaster for two years.

Tap takeovers at sister bars are not new for the Brooklyn brewery. Kush co-owner/manager David Rodriguez said a similar event was held in New York, and he wanted to bring it here. After his business partners spoke with a distributor, who talked to the brewery, it was a deal.

"It's an epic beer crawl involving all three businesses -- Kush, Lokal, and the Miami Brew Bus," Rodriguez said. "A lot of these beers you wont see down here, but because of the event, they sent one-offs and limited-release beers since this is pretty special."

Sixpoint is already distributed throughout South Florida and can be found in stores. But the takeover is a chance to try some of the brewery's finest beer. Rodriguez recommends all of their taps but particularly the Bengali IPA and some of the experimental batches such as the oyster stout and Sixpoint's Spice of Life series.

The final Sixpoint tap list: barrel-aged Imperial Otis, Brothers Quinn Rauchbier, Gorilla Warfare coffee porter, Oyster Stout 50L, Seison, Spontaneous Construction smoked beer, Bengali IPA, Resin double IPA, Sweet Action cream ale, Crisp Pilz pilsner, Mad Scientist #20 Kelpie, Apollo Kristalweizen beer, barrel-aged 3Bean porter, Tesla lager, Apostle IPA, Bills Brew, Get Safe saison, Hop Break ale, Little Bzzz ale, Old Redhooker barleywine, Sensi Harvest pale ale, Oktoberfest, Wheatball wheat ale, pale Ale, Kolsch, Quality Italian-Style ale, Imperial Otis on nitro, and Righteous Ry rye beer.

The Spice of LIfe series includes Centennial, Citra, Ella, Pacifica, and Sorachi Ace.

Aside from the $10 ticket, the price of each Sixpoint beer is $7 to $10, but Rodriguez estimates most of them are in the seven-to-eight-buck range.
