Six times two equals Pints

Pints Alehouse is doubling down to celebrate its sixth anniversary Friday and Saturday, with a half-dozen specialties on tap each day.

While none is quite as old as Pints itself, the predominately barrel-aged beers date back as far as 2014.

“They’re mostly out of our cellar, with some new ones as well,” says owner Derek Quist. “It’s a good mix between vintage and fresh. I’m pretty excited about it.”

Friday’s list includes:

– New Holland Blue Sunday (7 percent alcohol by volume), a blend of various barrel-aged sours.

– Almanac Barbary Coast (10) oak-aged imperial stout brewed with cocoa nibs, chili powder and sea salt.

– Boneyard Wooden Femur (11), a malty English-style barleywine aged in rye whiskey barrels.

– Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break (11.5) stout brewed with coffee, almonds and vanilla.

– Boulevard Rye on Rye (12), an imperial rye ale aged in rye whiskey barrels.

– Firestone Walker Parabola (14.5) bourbon barrel-aged imperial oatmeal stout.

And on Saturday, look for:

– Almanac Apricot de Brettaville (6.5) sour aged in oak with apricots.

– AleSmith Vietnamese Speedway Stout (12) brewed with Vietnamese coffee beans.

– Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee (12.5) Belgian-style quad aged in oak barrels.

– Port’s bourbon barrel-aged Older Viscosity (12).

– Epic Big Bad Baptist (12.7) imperial stout brewed with cocoa nibs and coffee beans.

– The Bruery Mash and Vanilla (13.3) barleywine aged in oak with vanilla beans.

A selection of IPAs also will be on tap through the weekend including Fremont’s hazy Head Full of Dynomite and pFriem Juicy.

As always, everything will be available in 5.5-ounce snifters as well as full pours, which will range from 10 to 16 ounces depending on the beer. Doors open at 3 p.m. each day.
