I met Annapolis Home Brew at Heavy Sea Beer for tour of the brewery. Hugh Sisson, Founder and Managing Partner, hosted the tour. I would recommend attending the tour. For $5 you can get a souvenir pint glass and 4 beer samples.

Modest taproom at the production brewery actually has a sweet, traditional bar that complements the pirate-themed industrial space well. Staff is excellent and knowledgable, and it was swell to get there at the shift end so we could chat with the brewers for a bit over a pint.

Seven taps, two casks, bottles and growlers and cases to-go. Loose Cannon and their big stouts were fantastic. Colorful branding, some sweet paintings and tacky pirate decor everywhere. Tiny parking lot, but its right off of 695 and 895; very easy to get to from Bmore or Annapolis. They schedulw tours in advance but were full during our impromptu vist. Will definitely drop by if we're driving through the area again!

The brewery is located close to I-95, and so it is very accessible. There is a laid back atmosphere, but it is a pleasant place to have a pint of Loose Cannon!

Visited their taproom early on a Friday afternoon. It was almost empty so I had the server almost all to myself. She was very helpful explaining what they had on tap and all my other questions about their brewery. The brewery was easy to get to and had a nice beer garden on the outside. While this is my first taproom I visited since my return from Germany I think it may be a hard one to beat. Doesn't mean I won't try other ones in the region but now I have something to compare them to.

Always enjoyed Heavy Seas brews. Nice low key atmosphere, good music, good selection on tap...mundane service. Effecient but borderline unfriendly, not only to me, but others as I observed.

Heavy Seas is my favorite brewery in the area. Their brewery and taproom are located in an old warehouse building. Tours are free and you can pay $5 for a pint glass and 5 beer samples. Maryland has a definite shortage of quality breweries and Heavy Seas is doing great things.

This was my first brewery tour of any kind and I had a really good time. The brewery is in an industrial park in the southwestern suburbs of Baltimore--not a place that you would think would house a brewery. The brewery is a bit small, but it was a pretty solid tour and had a great selection of beers to sample. The best part about the place is that for $5, you get a nice Heavy Seas beer glass and 5 tastings. Also, for only $10, you can pay for your significant other who doesn't like beer and get double the tastings and a second glass!

The first brewery visit/tour I've been on, and still one of the best places. Located in an industrial park in Halethorpe, it's pretty easy to locate and is only about a 10 minute drive from Baltimore City.

Tours are offered throughout the day Saturday and cost $5 for a the tour, five beer tokens for samples, and you souvenir pint glass. You have to make reservations online which fill up but if you plan ahead a week or two you should be fine (plus when I went we took some walk-ins with us).

Anyway, the brewery is huge and the tour was fantastic. Our tour guide (Chad) was funny, informative, and offered extra beer sample tokens for random trivia throughout. Since my tour they have since added a new taproom adjacent to the brewery. The overall vibe and theme of the place is very cool and the tasting rooms have plenty of cool merchandise and swag. Every employee seemed to be upbeat and genuinely excited to be working there.

I think they had eight or so beers on tap to try, along with one on cask. The beers are very solid, maybe not extraordinary, but not a bad one in the bunch. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the Baltimore area, chances are it will be the best $5 you've spent.
