Brewery Description:

To craft well-balanced, full-bodied beers using a combination of traditional and avant-garde brewing methods and to be a leader in cask conditioned ales. OK. Now the fun version. To boldly go where no man… Wait a minute. Somebody already said that. How about, to make awesome beer and have fun being a swashbuckling Pyrate-type. Yeah—I think that works. But 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, to the bold, to the adventuresome styles of Uncharted Waters—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! -Hugh Sisson- www.hsbeer.com
