Our Recommended Brew
Of course we have to recommend their Double Cannon. It is often featured in our seasonal beer selection. Hop aromas blast out of this flavor explosion. Massively dry-hopped, with a balanced malt sweetness, this irresistible force showcases the power of bringing in the extra artillery. If you’re familiar with their beers, you’ll notice that the Double Cannon has captured the beautiful balance of Loose Cannon but we’ve doubled the firepower. We employed the late addition, whirlpool, hopback, and dry-hopping process that makes Loose Cannon such a flavorful IPA. If you like this beer, Heavy Seas recommends trying their Cross Bones or Loose Cannon Brews.
