Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that Dat Booty Doe – an Oktoberfest-style Lager brewed in collaboration with Reagan and Bethany from Mix 106.5 FM’s “The MIX Morning Show” – will release on Friday, September 20.
Tapped to be the next release in Heavy Seas’ Taproom Exclusive Series, Dat Booty Doe is an Oktoberfest-style Lager that is meant to be “a bit maltier than you might normally find, with loads of bready, biscuity Munich malt, and balanced with just the right amount of Noble European hops (Hallertau in particular).” Clocking in at an easy drinking 5.5% ABV, Dat Booty Doe “provides just the right amount of flavor and drinkability” for a fall afternoon or evening.
Since this collaboration beer is meant to reflect Reagan and Bethany’s shared passion for both craft beer and community, a “portion of all draft beer sales during the release event and sales of Dat Booty Doe 4-packs will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Reagan and Bethany from the local Baltimore radio station, Mix 106.5, on our next can release,” says Heavy Seas Media & Communications Manager, Christine Shaffer.
“They have been so much fun to collaborate with. Reagan and Bethany embody the Fearless. Bold. Independent spirit we encourage at Heavy Seas. We love their enthusiasm for craft beer and commitment to giving back to the community, so a portion of the sales from this release will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank.”
Dat Booty Doe is scheduled to debut at a Release Event on September 20 at the Heavy Seas Brewery and will hang around only as long as supplies last. This Taproom Exclusive offering will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. Dat Booty Doe will not see distribution. Prost!

Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will begin the Taproom Exclusive Release of Scoops, a Chocolate Vanilla Twist Milkshake IPA, on August 16.
Crafted to be an “indulgent twist” on the India Pale Ale, Scoops is a Milkshake-style IPA brewed with “loads of chocolate and vanilla for decadence and sweetness, and lactose for a rich & creamy finish.” Weighing in at just 5.5% ABV and 40 IBUs, the “surprisingly drinkable” Scoops is “an IPA lover’s dessert dream come true.”
“A rich, decadent Chocolate Vanilla Twist Milkshake IPA, this beer was brewed with imported English Maris Otter, Chocolate, Black, and Crystal malts along with a hefty portion of flaked oats,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Almost 10 lbs per barrel of milk sugar (lactose), more than a pound per barrel of imported cocoa nibs, and just the right amount (which is A LOT) of vanilla blend to make this brew silky smooth deliciousness. Oh, and don’t forget the IPA part. We used only English hops to provide a unique earthy dry finish to balance the luscious flavors and make this beer surprisingly drinkable.”

Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that it will release Bmore Snoball, an Egg Custard Blonde Ale, as its newest Taproom Exclusive on Friday, July 26.
“Egg Custard” might seem like an interesting flavor choice for a Limited Release Blonde Ale, but Bmore Snoball has local history behind it as it is inspired by “the original snoball flavor of Baltimore that was introduced when ice was first made available for commercial use during the Industrial Revolution.” As ice blocks were transported across the East Coast during that time, many of those shipments passed through Baltimore. Children in the area would often request ice shavings to cool them off during the summer months, and their mothers eventually “decided to start making syrups to flavor the ice by using a recipe of vanilla, sugar, and eggs. Today, the flavor is just named Egg Custard and is simply a golden colored vanilla syrup (it does not taste like eggs).”
Now that we are all caught up on the history and inspiration behind Bmore Snoball (5.5% ABV), here’s what the brewery has to say about what you can expect from the beer itself:
“We used imported, nutty Maris Otter Pale malt as the base for this Blonde Ale inspired by the classic Baltimore summer treat,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “A touch of Munich Malt provides a hint of bready character to go with a whisper of Strisselspalt hops. To replicate the Egg Custard Snoball flavor, we’ve added vanilla (LOTS of vanilla!) and just a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. The result is a beer with a comforting aroma, a sweet dessert-like start and a surprisingly soft finish.”
Bmore Snoball will make its debut on July 26 in the Heavy Seas Tap Room. This Taproom Exclusive offering will be available for purchase in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft. Bmore Snoball will not see distribution. Prost!
