Heavy Seas Hires New National Accounts Manager


BALTIMORE, MD — Heavy Seas Beer is pleased to introduce Claus Hagelman as National Accounts Manager. Claus will be responsible for developing relationships with chain accounts, an area of growing importance in today’s craft beer industry.

With over 20 years of experience in the industry, Claus is a recognized sales and marketing professional. Beginning in the fine wine business in 1987, he transitioned to the beer industry in 1997 with Paulaner North America. In 2002, he left the brewery and joined Glazer’s Wholesale, one of the largest beer, wine, and liquor distributors in the country. At Glazer’s, Claus was in charge of developing the craft and import beer market in five states.

At the end of 2004, he left the distributor to become the National Sales Manager at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Delaware. He was with Dogfish Head for almost 7 years, helping to develop their sales and marketing programs.

A big transition occurred in 2011 when Claus joined 16 Mile Brewery, also in Delaware, as the Sales and Marketing Director. In addition to focusing on sales growth, he also developed a beer infused food program ranging from coffee to scrapple.

Heavy Seas is happy to welcome Claus aboard. He can be reached at claus@hsbeer.com.
