BALTIMORE, MD — Heavy Seas Beer is pleased to introduce the third beer in its draft-only program, the Desert Island Series. This program features “one-off” releases of beers designed by individual members of the Heavy Seas brewing team. Each beer in the series will be limited to only 100 barrels available at select locations within Heavy Seas’ 18 state distribution footprint. This limited release, an American Honey Amber Ale at 4.9% ABV, will be available in June.
The third offering was conceived and executed by our “greenest” brewing tandem, Brett Cracco and Courtney Lacey. According to Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard, “Ambitious, exuberant, expressive, brash, and somewhat capricious, this American-style Amber Ale is crisp, bold, and dry with plenty of American hops. It is loaded with flavor but is quaffable enough to enjoy in warmer months – or on a desert island. Brewed with some (relatively) local Virginia barley and a touch of Bamboo honey, this energetic tipple will spice up your June.”
