Heavy Seas is only open on Saturdays for tours, or during special events. I have been here twice to judge homebrew competitions and once for their annual Chili, Cheese, and Beer Festival. It is a functioning business/brewery with not much in the way of seating, but that is fine with me. They have been creating some fantastic firkins of late, though their availability is sparse.

Came here on a Saturday morning for the tour. $5 for the tour and they give you a pint glass to take home with, and five tokens which are redeemable for 4 ounce (or about that) pours at the bar. The tour itself was pretty good, but really if you’ve been on one brewery tour, they’re all the same. “Here’s the area we store our beer after it’s packaged. Here’s where we brew. Here’s the cold room. Here’s the fermentation tanks.” The tour guide was one of the brewers, which did make it nice, though he said that all of the workers sort of rotate through giving the weekly tours. So sometimes you might get the guy who runs the packaging line who will want to tell you all about packaging, and not so much about what they’re brewing at the time, or get super excited about the new hop shipment, etc. There are bottles available for purchase here, but at the time there wasn’t anything really rare, and no bombers, just cases of their regular lineup. Good experience overall. The workers here really make the place.

I stopped on by here on a Saturday morning. 11am tour wasn’t too busy, but by the 12:30 one, the place had filled in nicely. Food truck outside with some pretty delicious food. Folks pouring the beers were quite nice and beer samples were part of the tour - with the option to buy pints. Two casks, but just amped up versions of the regular beer when I visited. Bottles available to purchase.

Tour was nice, with ability to walk around entire brewery - a touch sticky on the floor around the barrels - time for a good cleaning! Probably worth going for brewery competitions, people who aren’t familiar with their beers or people who really just want to drink a few Heavy Seas beers.

Typical warehouse brewery with high ceilings and stacks of beer ready to be shipped out. Normally only open on Saturdays for brewery tours. Tours start and end in the small tasting room for a few samples and the chance to purchase some well-designed merchandise. Occasionally open their doors to offer great beer/food events and to support local homebrew competitions. Great staff and AHA members can tour for free.

Brew tour followed by build a cask with the brewers for StateLine. As soon as you walk in they have shirts/signs and other stuff for sale. Every one is friendly and ready to hand out beer. 6 or 8 taps for sampling. 1 cask. Tour is typical.... we saw the hop fridge, bottle/keg line, ferm tanks, etc... They just purchased the building next to them so now they have extra room and are planning a nice expansion. After the tour some more brew and we helped dry hop a cask of peg leg and loose cannon. Pretty cool that they let us do that and a great marketing ploy on their part. Every one is chill and friendly. Good times overall and highly reccommended tour.

Not a fancy place from the outside-it’s in an Industrial Park Just outside Baltimore City. Nice size tasting room w/souviner & beer sales. Got a nice Pllsner glass to keep & 6-8 oz samples f/$5 good value. Had 4 beers on tap & bottles of most beers they had available/in season. Nice informative tour-pretty basic but nice. Are doing them 2 Saturdays a month in Summer @ 1:00 & 2:30 (Early tour is much less crowded). Hours may change w/the seasons-Check the Website-it’s very current. Was told Hugh Sisson gives half of them (he did not give ours). Good friendly staff & crowd I’d highly recommend this place...... Took this tour again on 3/8/08 & was lucky enough to have Hugh give this one & it was even better than last time. Everything they have in stock is available to sample!

I am not sure where the picture came from in the listing, but it does not look like that at all. Located in an industrial complex, the tasting room is in the very front. There is limited signage that indiciates when to go in so I sat in the parkling lot for 15 minutes trying to figure out if i was in the right place. Once I figured it out I had a very enjoyable Thursday evening. They had 8 beers on tap plus 2 on cask. Mostly their standard offerings but also a couple barrel aged beers. Very friendly staff...I actually got an impromtu tour of the brewery from an employee who was sitting at the bar having a pint. Nice atmosphere and really a great place. No food, but it appears you can bring your own.

Small parking lot. Small wooded deck area just outside. Small bar, sits maybe 10. Many small tables made from barrels which can probably sit 4 apiece. 8 beers on tap, which included 2 Uncharted Waters. Good prices on beer, great prices on most merch. Bartenders were very kind, and very entertaining. I think they were drinking along with the patrons, but I am in no way trying to ruin anyone’s good time. Nice little place.
