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.
