Baltimore, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the Partner Ships Series in 2016. This collaboration series will feature beers brewed with Maine Beer Company, Troegs Independent Brewing, Terrapin Beer Company, and Stone Brewing Company. Born on friendship, creativity, and a boundless sense of adventure, the Partner Ships Series celebrates the spirit of American craft beer today.
The first beer in the series, releasing in late February 2016, will be a collaboration with Maine Brewing Company from Freeport, Maine. This beer will be a well-balanced Red IPA at 7.25% ABV, featuring American hops and citrus and pine flavors. Waves of orange blossom, grapefruit, and lemon flavors set sail atop a subtle toasted malt character. This collaborative brew offers an impressive hop forward characteristic over a burnished malt backbone.
Heavy Seas Brewing Team Leader, Christopher Schultz, and Brewers, Courtney Lacey and Megan Schwarz, will be joined by Maine Brewing Company Co-Owner and Co-Founder, Dan Kleban, on Thursday, January 28th to brew the beer at the Heavy Seas brewery.
