Baltimore, MD — Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the first release in its 2017 Partner Ships series of collaboration beers – an English style “Olde Ale” (8.5% ABV) brewed with Union Craft Brewing of Baltimore, releasing in February.
This series features beers produced in collaboration with other regionally and nationally recognized brewers in the spirit of friendship, creativity, and adventure.
For 2017, Heavy Seas is partnering 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.
“‘Olde Ale’ is an interesting beer style featuring flavors of nuts, cocoa, molasses, and dried fruits float over a chewy, luscious body of English malt goodness,” said Christopher Leonard, Heavy Seas’ Brewmaster. “Inspired by the rich, warming brews of a bygone era, and with the addition of local Domino Brown Sugar, this example of neighborly camaraderie will yield a true, comfort ale that should kindle its own Baltimore nostalgia.”
“We’ve been having a ball with the Partner Ships collaborations,” said Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. “We are particularly happy to be partnering with Union, part of the “new wave” of Baltimore craft beer, and damn good guys to boot.”
Here are the product specs:
