Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has announced that Blackbeard’s Breakfast will soon begin its annual, limited release with a new look in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles.
Returning as a fan-favorite from Heavy Seas Beer’s Uncharted Waters Series, Blackbeard’s Breakfast is an Imperial Porter that starts with a base of English malts and hops and is then dosed with Dark Sumatra coffee from Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company. Once the brewing is all said and done, Blackbeard’s Breakfast is sent to rest in bourbon barrels so that it can pick up just the right amount of oak, vanilla and bourbon. Weighing in at an imposing 10% ABV, the finished Blackbeard’s Breakfast offers a slow-sipping experience that “will please coffee and beer connoisseurs alike.”
To mix things up a bit in 2018, the folks at Heavy Seas made the decision to transition the packaging for all Uncharted Waters offerings to 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles. Blackbeard’s Breakfast and all other beers in this series will no longer be available in 22 oz. bottles.
Blackbeard’s Breakfast is scheduled to officially release at some point in late April or early May 2018 and will be available as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Maryland and throughout the rest of Heavy Seas Beer’s distribution area. Prost!
