Celebrating decades: Heavy Seas 21 Anniversary Ale

Heavy Seas 21 Anniversary Ale

Heavy Seas 21 Anniversary Ale will be a new entry in the brewery’s Uncharted Waters Series, marking over two decades of craft brewing.

To celebrate the Baltimore, Maryland based brewery’s 21st birthday, Heavy Seas 21 Anniversary Ale will be released. The base beer is an imperial Extra Special Bitter (ESB), brewed with rye malt and brown sugar, and aged in Sagamore Rye Whiskey barrels.

To celebrate our 21st Anniversary, we have created a Rye Imperial ESB brewed with imported UK malt, local Domino brown sugar, a powerful English Ale Yeast, and a blend of herbaceous British hops (to the tune of 65 IBUs). 21 was aged for sixty days in locally sourced, single use Sagamore Rye Whiskey barrels.

21 years is a strong milestone for Heavy Seas. In order to get to where the brewery stands today, founder Hugh Sisson got heavily involved in politics and changed some of Maryland’s restrictive laws. Every beer you drink from Heavy Seas is a testament to Sisson’s desire to bring great beer to Maryland.

Heavy Seas 21 Anniversary Ale will be a 22 ounce bottle and draft release.

Style: ESB (w/ Brown Sugar. Barrel Aged. Rye Whiskey.)

Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
