BALTIMORE, MD (Dec. 12, 2018) – Heavy Seas Beer is pleased to announce several new additions and exciting changes to its portfolio in 2019. Citra Cannon IPA, Sun Burst Sour Ale, and Night Swell Dark IPA will be introduced as limited releases. The “Uncharted Waters” series will introduce a new barrel-aged Sour Ale, Red Flag, to its lineup, as well as welcome new draft-only variants on its returning beers.

Heavy Seas Cannon Crew Samplers, available year-round, will include all four Cannon Crew beers: Loose Cannon, TropiCannon, Double Cannon, and AmeriCannon. The samplers will be offered in both can and bottle formats. This will also introduce the availability of Double Cannon in 12oz cans – in both the sampler pack and its own 6-packs.

The brewery will continue the tradition to release an anniversary ale at the end of each year, named “24” for 2019. This annual release will now be available on draft and in. 4packs of 16oz cans.

Finally, Heavy Seas will continue its small-batch beer program in 2019 and introduce 16oz can releases along with draft availability. These limited release beers will continue to be available throughout the year exclusively in the Heavy Seas Taproom at the brewery in Baltimore, MD. Each beer style will not be announced until closer to its release date.

“We are always very excited to produce new products, so 2019 will definitely be a great year from a creativity perspective,” says Heavy Seas Founder, Hugh Sisson. “We hope to make new friends in the broad market as well as the taproom.”
