On Thurday, July 23, Hugh Sisson, founder and partner in Clipper City Brewing Company in Baltimore, Md. will be here for a tasting of the Heavy Seas line. Heavy Seas is a favorite around these parts. So embrace your inner pirate and join us! We're one of the firsts to have the brand new Big DIPA! Arghhhhh!

Small Craft Warning "We call this beer an Über Pils – a pilsner style bock lager. Rich, malty, and well rounded but with a firm structure of noble hops. Surprisingly pale in color for such a powerful, complex beer." [7.25% abv] Silver Medal- World Beer Championship 2007

Red Sky At Night "This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (farmhouse ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August." [7.5% abv]

Peg Leg Stout "A dry Imperial stout with rich black color and aromas of roasted coffee, molasses, dark chocolate, toffee and caramel. Rich, powerful, and lingering." [8.0% abv]

Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale "Called Hop 3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! Also the beer is hopped 3 ways – in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped. Winner of the Overall Best of Show Award in the Maryland State Governor's Cup 2005 Competition and voted the #1 IPA by Mahaffey's Pub. Available year round!" [7.5% abv]

Big DIPA (new!) "This Double IPA, is the first in the Heavy Seas Special Edition Series. Hopped 3 times in the brewing process, Big DIPA has an earthy hop aroma. In keeping with the Heavy Seas philosophy we've made a big beer with a surprising balance. The label artwork was created by Kurt Krol, one of our brewers who also helped to develop the recipe." [10.6% abv]
