Heavy Seas Releases Collaboration Wee Heavy with MadTree Brewing

BALTIMORE, MD – The “Partner Ships” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome it’s third and final collaboration in 2017, a Wee Heavy brewed with MadTree Brewing of Cincinnati, OH. This limited release will be available in November in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.

This collaboration is a twist on a classic style. Using Golden Promise as our base malt and a touch of Roasted Barley, we look to Simpson’s Double Roast Crystal and Weyermann Chocolate Rye to add a unique touch to this collaboration brew. East Kent Golding has a very subtle presence exclusively in this beer. With Burundi Mpanga coffee from Deeper Roots in Cincinnati, Ethiopian Harrar coffee from Chesapeake Bay Roasting Co. in Baltimore, and cocoa nibs from Maverick Chocolate in Cincinnati, this robust brew is loaded with local flavor. Deep mahogany in color with layers of malt, chocolate, and roasted complexity.

Here are the product specs:

For 2017, Heavy Seas partnered with Union Craft Brewing, Cigar City Brewing, and MadTree Brewing. The Partner Ships series is brewed at Heavy Seas Beer in Baltimore and celebrates the pioneering spirit of American craft beer today.
