Drink Your Beer And Have It, Too: 4 Tips For Dominating The Brew Mile

At Brew Mile, you’ll be tasked with finishing four beers over a one mile course — which yes, is EPIC — but is also insanely hard. Running a mile on its own is tough, so just imagine what it’s like to throw back beers while you’re gasping for air!

We’re a pint-glass-half-full kind of event, so we know you’re up for the challenge. But we want to make sure you can drink your beers with ease and actually enjoy them, then finish the course and still have room for more drinks (and more fun) at the after party directly past the finish line.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Sixpoint Brewery to give you the best tips on how to dominate your beer run and crush the course…and your cans! Here’s how you should approach each beer along the course:

1. First things first: take a big gulp and free up some room in the can.

2. Resist the temptation to down the whole can right away… the last thing you want is all that carbonation gurgling around in your belly!

3. Swirl the can a little…yes, like you would for wine, or a cocktail (it knocks out carbonation!). Give that Brew a nice sniff as you do so to fully appreciate the aromas, because you’re about to crush that can.

4. Give your drink a gulp — then finish it off before jumping back on the course!

Brew Mile NYC will be proudly serving beer from Sixpoint Brewery this Saturday, July 18. You can sign up here, and check out a preview of what Sixpoint will be bringing to Aviator Sports Center below!

Righteous Ale  A hearty ale made with rye malt to provide a signature and distinct earthy character. Seasoned and dry-hopped with herbal and citrus hops. Truly Righteous.

Bengali — The Sixpoint homebrewed IPA interpretation. Blaze orange in color, with an abundance of citrus hop bitterness, and a full pine and grapefruit bouquet in the aroma.

Resin — Resin is an ode to the sticky quintessence of hops — Sixpoint extracted the alluring nectar from every precious citrus, pine, dank and herbal cone and channeled it all into one vessel.

Jammer — the Mad Scientist Gose interpretation, with a balance of salinity, coriander and tartness. Brewed with hand-harvested sea salt from Jacobsen Salt Co.

Brownstone — Brownstone is our bedrock; the first fortress of Sixpoint. This mahogany-hued brew has elements of roasted barley and a hop-forward profile.

Dark Mild — An English style, easy drinking, malt-forward brew that’s dark in color but extra quaffable.
