Clipper City Brewery in Baltimore, MD says, "Why be normal when you can be EXTRAARGHdinary?"  Since we've never claimed to be "normal" here at Wine & Words, we're pleased to introduce to brews from Clipper City's "Heavy Seas" portfolio.  These are bold and a little reckless, for the beer drinker who's not afraid of flavor.

Loose Cannon Hop3 Pale Ale is a very hoppy brew.  That's why they call it "hop cubed."  And they've hopped up the alcohol to 7.25%.  A loose cannon, indeed.  But you can handle it.  Rope yourself to the mast and let 'er rip. Winner of the Overall Best of Show Award in the Maryland State Governor's Cup 2005 Competition and voted the #1 IPA by Mahaffey’s Pub.
Small Craft Warning Über Pils is a pilsner style bock lager. Rich, malty, and well rounded but with a firm structure of noble hops. Surprisingly pale in color for such a powerful, complex beer. 7.25% alcohol. Silver Medal World Beer Championships 2007.
