A team of staff members from The Modern will be heading down to Red Hook's Sixpoint Craft Ales brewery to take part in a two-day beer-making class. The result will be the Manhattan restaurant's third proprietary beer with the Brooklyn beermaker.
The beer already has a name: Dr. Klankenstein. (A bit clunky, but memorable.) It will be a "stone" beer, an ancient brewing technique that entails superheated rocks being thrown into the mash to caramelize the malt. It will be Sixpoint's first stone beer.
Look for Dr. Klankenstein (ask for it by name!) in May. On tap, of course. Because Sixpoint doesn't do bottles.
