Heavy Seas Celebrates 21st Birthday with NEW Anniversary Ale

imageFrom Heavy Seas:

BALTIMORE, MD -- - Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the release of 21, an

anniversary ale to celebrate the brewery’s 21st year of brewing craft beer in Baltimore.

This Imperial Rye ESB aged in local Sagamore Spirit rye whiskey barrels, will be

released in early December within the “Uncharted Waters” Series.

“To celebrate our 21st anniversary, we have fashioned an Imperial Rye ESB

brewed with imported UK Marris Otter malt, Crystal Rye malt, local Domino brown

sugar, & a blend of spicy, herbaceous British and American hops - to the tune of 65

IBUs,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “21 will be aged for sixty-

days in locally sourced, single use Sagamore Spirit rye whiskey barrels.”

“We wanted to create a synergy between the Rye Whiskey Barrels, the beer, & the

consumer, taking him or her on a sensory journey. By incorporating ingredients that

mirror and accentuate the flavors of the Whiskey that aged in the barrels first, we’ve

developed a beer that speaks to the soul of the Rye fan while satisfying the Heavy Seas
