First cryo hops for the brewery.  Heavy Seas AmeriCannon debuts

Heavy Seas AmeriCannon Pale Ale kicks off the Baltimore, Maryland brewery’s 2018 lineup.

“I’m not sure I can describe how excited we are about this beer,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. Pale ale is the figurative “meat & potatoes” of American brewing. Almost every brewery has one, but thanks to dank new hop varieties and Lupulin powder, the American pale ale has been reborn.

Heavy Seas AmeriCannon is the first full production beer to use lupulin hop powder, specifically Simcoe hop powder. Think of it like uber dank dust that will have you burping hops after each sip. Centennial, Citra, and Palisade are the hop stars in AmeriCannon, which has also been dry-hopped Centennial and Simcoe hops.

“Ultimately, we’ve chosen a heavy dose of Simcoe Cryo pellets – pelletized lupulin powder – along with Centennial, Citra, and Palisade pellets in our double dry-hopping process. This follows Centennial, Cascade, Palisade, and Simcoe whole flower hops in our hopback; Warrior, Cascade, Amarillo, and Centennial pellets along with even more Simcoe Cryo pellets in the kettle.” – Chris Leonard
