Heavy Seas Announces 2019 Release Calendar & New Beers

Heavy Seas Beer has just announced several new additions and exciting changes to their portfolio in 2019. The brewery adds three new limited releases to their lineup with the CitraCannon IPA, Sun Burst Sour Ale,and Night Swell Dark IPA, as well as some new draft-only variants on returning beers.

Their Cannon Crew Samplers will be available year-round in both bottle and can formats, featuring all four Cannon Crew beers: Loose Cannon, Tropicannon, Double Cannon, and AmeriCannon. This also introduces the availability of Double Cannon in 12oz cans, which will be available in the samplers as well as its own 6-packs.

Heavy Seas will also continue to release their anniversary ale at the end of each year, named “24” for 2019. This annual release will now be available on draft and in 4-packs of 16oz cans. In addition to this, the company will be continuing their small-batch beer program into 2019 with 16oz can releases and draft availability for these beers.

The limited release beers will continue to be available throughout the year exclusively at the Heavy Seas Taproom at the brewery in Baltimore, MD.

“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.
