Some exciting Heavy Seas news tonight.  Holy Sheet Brandy Aged will be added to the new Uncharted Waters Series (Belgian-Style Strong Ale, 22oz bottles, 9% ABV).  It will be joined by Siren Noire Imperial Chocolate Stout in the Uncharted Waters Series (22oz bottles, 8% ABV).  This is the former Mutiny Series of beers and the lineup will be rounded out with Dig DIPA, hang Ten, Letter of marque, Aarsh Red, Yule Tide, Plank I & II, Great Pumpkin & Below Decks.

As if this isn’t fun enough, Heavy Seas announced that Loose Cannon IPA, Marzen Lager & Davy Jones Lager will all be coming in cans in 2013…stay tuned for details.

From Heavy Seas:

Heavy Seas announces its product line for 2013. A number of modifications have been made to the 2013 portfolio to better reflect the Heavy Seas' brand and its focus, including: an overhaul of our Mutiny Fleet beers; preliminary plans for canned beers; expanded cask ale offerings; changes to select year-round products; and a new seasonal beer.

The biggest change Heavy Seas has in store for 2013 is the repositioning of our line of higher gravity beers (the Mutiny Fleet). This line will now be known as the Unchartered Waters line and all of the beers under that category will be influenced by wood in one way or another. Siren Noire Imperial Chocolate Stout aged in bourbon barrels will come out in January 2013. In March, we will release Oak Aged Big DIPA (double IPA). Holy Sheet Über Abbey Ale aged in brandy barrels will be released in May. Great'ER Pumpkin (our imperial pumpkin ale aged in bourbon barrels) will be released in September. Yule Tide, our November release, will take the place of our ongoing Plank project―aging beers on wood. That style will be determined closer to November of 2013.

We have preliminary plans to release three products in cans in 2013. While we haven't determined availability at this juncture, we will be offering Loose CANnon, Davey Jones' Lager, and an Oktoberfest style in cans this year.

As the largest producers of cask ale in the country, Heavy Seas is focused on expanding the number of offerings for retailers. We will continue to offer dry-hopped firkins of Loose Cannon and Powder Monkey (pale ale) year-round. We will also incorporate preset quantities of all seasonal beers and Unchartered Waters beers.

Year-round, we will continue to offer Loose Cannon, Small Craft Warning, and Peg Leg. In order to better reflect our brand personality, we have renamed our Clipper Fleet beers: Heavy Seas Märzen will now be Cutlass Amber; Heavy Seas Pale Ale will now be Powder Monkey; Heavy Seas Gold Ale will now be Gold. Heavy Seas Classic Lager will be discontinued.

Seasonally, we will offer Black Cannon in January through March. We wanted to add a new style to our seasonal catalog, therefore Dubbel Cannon will be replaced by Riptide White IPA, which is currently in formulation; Riptide will be offered April through June. Red Sky at Night, our saison, will be offered July through September. Winter Storm Imperial ESB will be offered October through December. Additionally, the new seasonal lineup will include 12 oz. bottles of Great Pumpkin, offered in Sunken Sampler packs exclusively in August and September.
