Joe Six Craft


I am creating a new term. At least I think it is new. I don’t want to check. I would rather have the delusion of originality rather than the confirmation of conventionality.

It is Joe Six Craft. The origin was watching my cousin consume some Ithaca Flower Power IPA yesterday. My cuz is a New York City cop. As wide and big as a side of beef and street smart. He got into craft beer when he and his partner went off duty and bought a couple of craft brews. Flower Power. Cops and Craft with a Hippie Vibe.

He really gravitates towards the IPA’s. I do believe that the mass brewers are in trouble. When a cop in NYC passes on your beers, it doesn’t take street smarts to know that the ‘hood has changed.
