Ataraxia Strong Ale Launch Party at the Modern

We are launching the Ataraxia Strong Ale with our friends at the Modern. There will be 7 beers on tap in total. An event-themed pairing list will be offered and the Modern will offer complimentary Alsatian flatbreads in the bar area.


"This is the Fifth brew in the line of our exclusive collaboration with the Sixpoint crew and marked the first time teaming up with Sixpoint’s Braumeister Jan Matysiak. We were interested in harnessing his German roots to create a Winter Warmer that was easy to drink and not muddled with any type of spice components other than what you would get from the hops. We decided to brew a strong ale that fell in at the bottom of the spectrum (roughly 6% ABV) which makes it quite sessionable. We wanted something with a sweet, biscuity malt character and this came through with a complex grain bill using Vienna and Munich malts. The hops are a spicy background note and Jan used mostly German hop varieties including Magnum and Hallertauer & Hersbrucker"
