I've visited several times over the last year, a couple of times with my wife, who isn't a beer fan but enjoyed the tour and always has a pint of Pounder pilsner. We've also been with another couple for kegs and eggs on Sunday morning. I have taken my Dad to hang out and have a burger and I've stopped in just to stock up and grab a quick pint. Every time has been enjoyable.

The service has been prompt and friendly. There are usually 8 beers on tap and 2 on cask and I generally get something from the cask when I'm there. The tap room is small but friendly with a decent sized outside deck area (enclosed in the colder months) that attaches the tap room to the family run food bus, which is always there. The bus is painted like a ship to match the Heavy Seas/ tap room theme. They use spent grain from the brewery to make pizza and pretzels and have pretty good burgers as well.

I always leave with at least a few bombers of limited release beers when I'm there. This place is worth a visit if you are in the area.

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.

Rating based off their insanely awesome Chili & Cheese festival (the only time I've been there).

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. (Update 5/24/17)
Service has gotten much better and friendly faces are inviting you in the door...
