BALTIMORE, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to introduce a new seasonal offering, TreasureFest, an Oktoberfest style lager. This limited release will be available starting July in all 17 states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.
TreasureFest is an American spin on the classic German style. Brewed with imported German malt and lavishly hopped with a blend of German hops in the kettle and dry hopped with American hops, this is a fresh look at the old Oktober stand-by.
“I am a huge fan of Oktoberfest-style beers,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Their arrival portends the cool, colorful autumn season that is my favorite time of year. The distinct bready, biscuity malt profile that is their soul speaks to my barley-hearted sensibilities. I’m thrilled to be able to provide a Heavy Seas twist by dry-hopping our interpretation with floral American hops. It should be no surprise to those familiar with our beers that we’ve boosted the malt bill and abv, to just under 6%, to help keep the robust hopping in balance. If you like Oktoberfest-style beers and enjoy American IPA’s, this beer just might be the love child hybrid you’ve been waiting for.”

“I agree with Chris,” said Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. “This should be a perfect beer for late summer/early fall. I can’t wait. Prosit!”
