Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) recently announced that they will kick off the 2017 edition of the Partner Ships Series with an Olde Ale brewed in collaboration with Union Craft Brewing (Baltimore, Maryland).
The Partner Ships Series – a lineup of limited release brews from Heavy Seas Beer produced in collaboration with other regionally and nationally recognized brewers in the spirit of friendship, creativity, and adventure – returns for another round in 2017 and launches with an Olde Ale created by Heavy Seas and fellow Baltimore brewery, Union Craft Brewing. The goal of this beer was to stay true to the Old Ale style by featuring “flavors of nuts, cocoa, molasses, and dried fruits float[ing] over a chewy, luscious body of English malt goodness.” To add a bit of their city’s flair to the brew, the beer also utilizes local Domino Brown Sugar to “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.”
Heavy Seas Beer will officially release the Partner Ships Ole Ale in February of 2017. This “extremely limited” offering will be available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments found in Alabama, Florida and throughout the rest of the Heavy Seas distribution area. The first year of releases from the Partner Ships Series certainly did not disappoint, so be sure to get your hands on this Olde Ale from Heavy Seas and Union Craft Brewing while you can. Prost!
