BALTIMORE — Heavy Seas is excited to announce the release of, Boil Beer, a Pilsner brewed in collaboration with Outer Banks Boil Company, who specializes in the Low-Country Coastal Seafood and Shrimp Boils. This Beer is set to pair perfectly with their fresh seafood and in-house spices. Boil Beer will be available in late August at the Carolina Beach, NC location. This beer will also be available during a curbside can release at the Heavy Seas Brewery on August 29th where customers will have the opportunity to purchase a boil pot to-go. This crisp, clean pilsner is liquid perfection when paired with “The Best Pot on the Beach”.
“We brewed Boil Beer with a variety of European hops for a bright and zesty aroma,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster Chris Leonard. “Its crisp malt backbone and herbaceous hop profile makes it both refreshing and smooth. We couldn’t be more excited to partner up with Outer Banks Boil Company this summer. Boil Beer is the perfect beer for relaxing and enjoying a boil pot in the sun. Cheers!”
“With my roots buried in the Baltimore area, teaming with Heavy Seas was a perfect fit,” says OBBC Founder and CEO, Matt Khouri. “Their dedication to quality beer and a family feel from our initial conversations, paved the way for this partnership to blossom. As an organization, we are thrilled for this opportunity and look forward to continuing and strengthening our relationship with Heavy Seas. Major kudos to Ryan Miller for spearheading this effort and to the entire team at Heavy Seas for all of the work put in to make the dream of a ‘Boil Beer’ a reality! Cheers y’all!”
“The combination of being a craft beer enthusiast and the fact that we often times cook our pots with different styles of beer, I knew OBBC needed to have its own beer as part of our growing offerings,” says OBBC Partner, Ryan Miller. When searching for our future partner along with home brewer and close friend Dave Humes, we knew it was paramount to find a local Baltimore brewery that shared our culture and emphasis on long lasting relationships. They needed to feel like family! During our first call with Sarah West at Heavy Seas, we immediately had this feeling and then we were off to the races despite being in the heart of the craziness caused by COVID-19. For our first beer, we decided to go with a Pilsner as we wanted to ensure it appealed to a broad demographic as we envision our customers to not only cook with our beer but also consume it while enjoying our boil or just hanging out on the beach. We envision this being the first of many OBBC beers along with Heavy Seas!”
Boil Beer will release in 6 packs of 16 oz cans at the Heavy Seas brewery Saturday August 29th. For more information, visit: www.hsbeer.com. For more information on availability at Outer Banks Boil Company – Carolina Beach, NC, visit: www.capefearboilcompany.com

The Outer Banks Boil Company now has five locations on the East Coast (North Carolina, Maryland, and Virginia) serving up the Traditional Coastal Shrimp Boil.
