Partnerships Red IPA Brewed by Heavy Seas Beer Company and Maine Beer Company

Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the Partner Ships Series in 2016. This collaboration series will feature beers brewed with Maine Beer Company, Troegs Independent Brewing, Terrapin Beer Company, and Stone Brewing Company. Born on friendship, creativity, and a boundless sense of adventure, the Partner Ships Series celebrates the spirit of American craft beer today.

The first beer in the series, releasing in late February 2016, will be a collaboration with Maine Brewing Company from Freeport, Maine. This beer will be a well-balanced Red IPA at 7.25% ABV, featuring American hops and citrus and pine flavors. Waves of orange blossom, grapefruit, and lemon flavors set sail atop a subtle toasted malt character. This collaborative brew offers an impressive hop forward characteristic over a burnished malt backbone.

Heavy Seas Brewing Team Leader, Christopher Schultz, and Brewers, Courtney Lacey and Megan Schwarz, will be joined by Maine Brewing Company Co-Owner and Co-Founder, Dan Kleban, on Thursday, January 28th to brew the beer at the Heavy Seas brewery.

Style: Red IPA
ABV: 7.25%
IBU: 42
Hops: Warrior, Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Hallertau Blanc
Malts: 2-row, Caramalt 80, Chocolate, Vienna

The Heavy Seas Mission
To make awesome beer and have fun being a swashbuckling Pyrate-type.

Why? Because Pyrates are cool in a very special way. As I once read, “the average man will bristle if you say his father was dishonest, but he will brag a little if he discovers that his great-grandfather was a pirate.” For me, this captures what Heavy Seas is all about—an attitude of risk-taking, a touch of the playful rogue, a desire to stretch the boundaries, all wrapped in an appealing costume of possible impropriety with a twinkle in the eye. I believe this is an attitude that we can all embrace—indeed, that we need to embrace from time to time. Who hasn’t occasionally allowed his imagination to take the helm of a Pyrate ship and set off into uncharted waters?

We want you to see that in our beers: from the sessionable Clipper Fleet, to the bold Pyrate Fleet, to the rebellious Mutiny Fleet—and especially in our cask ales. The spirit of exploration blended with a mischievous sense of fun, that’s our Mission. Aaargh!

Because as we know, Sailors tell stories… Pyrates make Legends!
