A visit to Heavy Seas Alehouse in Baltimore, MD

A recent Sunday afternoon brought Pub Crawl NYC to Heavy Seas Alehouse.  Heavy Seas beer, formerly known as Clipper City, has been a quality Baltimore craftbrew since the 1990s.  In fact, the first IPA I ever had was a Clipper City IPA and I’ve been a hophead ever since (the staff at the Alehouse was very happy to hear that)!  Located in a former factory on the eastern edge of Baltimore’s Little Italy, Heavy Seas Alehouse offers ten taps of Heavy Seas beer, as well as two cask-conditioned ales (there is also a small offering of bottled beers not from the Heavy Seas line-up).  Unfortunately, the Alehouse does not double as a brewpub.  The beer is brewed nearby in Baltimore County.  The place has several dining areas beyond the main bar area.  The food menu, featuring a raw bar, offers a combination of bar and bistro fare.  The Heavy Seas Alehouse is definitely worth a visit the next time you are in Charm City.

The tasty sampler option!
