Heavy Seas Beer began in 1995 and has grown to become one of the most respected and award winning craft breweries on the east coast. Captaining the helm is our founder Hugh Sisson with decades of experience in developing, producing and marketing fine beers. As the first pub brewer in Maryland, Hugh was responsible for the legislation that made brewpubs legal in the state.
Heavy Seas is about adventure, challenge, risk taking, rebellion, and an active lifestyle. Symbolizing a certain swagger, our pirate logo is the perfect metaphor and the ocean has always been one of man's greatest challenges and most inspiring adventures. We love people who have the courage and character to challenge what life has to offer, aware of the risks, and who embrace it anyway. We make beers to celebrate both the people and their adventures. It's an attitude, a lifestyle and who we are. Heavy Seas - Chart a Bolder Course
