Located in Little Italy-inside a huge building but I was suprised how small the actual ale house is. Rather dark inside...Around 8 Heavy Seas beers on tap and 2 casks. Nothing special-all standard offerings or a seasonal. Still you cant go wrong with Loose cannon for my money. Service at the bar was very attentive. Had some great hush puppies and a single crab cake that was almost as good as my mom's. Worth stopping by-I wish they had some ale house specials or one offs in here rather then their core line up. May seem pricey but for basically being downtown Baltimore I didnt find it out of line.

The wife and I were walking to Max's and strolled right by Heavy Seas Alehouse. Must check it out! Beautiful industrial building, well repurposed. Spacious inside, but a bit corporate looking and not a whole lot of personality. Sort of Applebee's-meets-Google.

Surprisingly busy on a Christmas monday night, but nice at the bar. Tought-but-nice service from a no-nonsense Bawlmer chick. Their food menu is limited but has some interesting things, such as "Rusty Cannon cheese" (beer-washed Taleggio) and local oysters.

Their beer menu is confusing- they list a bunch of seasonals that are actually not available; their "real" lineup is on a chalkboard behind the bar: 6 year-round brews (including Peg Leg Imp Stout), 2 seasonal (Davy Jones and Aarghtoberfest) and 2 casks (Below Decks and Loose Cannon). I was hoping for much more, including some barrel-aged stuff.

We had a good time and would go back, even though this place is far from outstanding.

Went here for lunch and a few brews on a cloudy rainy Saturday afternoon. Not that many people were there early in the afternoon, but the place looks like it could be rocking on a good evening. Beer was quality and food was good. Our server was very knowledgeable about the beer and even made some recommendations. The selection was awesome with Heavy Seas full selection plus two cask offerings. Food was pretty good, however a tad pricey. Overall somewhere I would come back to but maybe only for a drink.

I had been eager to try Heavy Seas Alehouse since it opened, but I was finally able to get here with a small group for my birthday in April. It did not disappoint! If you are going here it is probably for Heavy Seas beer, which they offer the regular line-up and the available seasonals on draft. They also have bottled beer from other brewers, wine, cocktails, and rum. For the less-adventurous drinkers in the group, they had 1 or 2 domestic bottles on the menu which still cost around $5 each, so the restaurant is catering more toward the craft beer drinker. The biggest draw (to me) was the cask ales, which they had 2 when I was there: Loose Cannon and Powder Monkey. The Loose Cannon was a fine choice, very hoppy and flat (but not in a bad way, it is meant to be less carbonated than the usual draft or bottle). But the Powder Monkey was outstanding: sweet and delicious, with the right balance of malt to hop. The cask ales do change often, but they promise to have some available continuously.

While the beer is the obvious draw, the food was phenomenal as well! They had something for everyone: from local oysters, roast duck, and braised rabbit to burgers, salads, and pasta. The entire group was pleased with their meal. For dessert I had the Peg Leg stout Ice Cream float. The creamy, sweet ice cream paired well with the malty, slightly bitter, and creamy stout.

You will probably go here for the beer, but the check out the food as well. While not as fancy as The Brewer's Art, it is still a bit pricey so it will remain more of a place for special occasions to me.
