Kelli and I recently went to the Heavy Seas Beer and Oyster Fest. It was a lot of fun hanging out at the Heavy Seas Brewery and getting to meet Hugh Sissons again. Below are the pictures from the event. I refrained from doing beer reviews, as there were too many beers to drink, and I really just wanted to relax and have a good time. After clicking on a picture below to enlarge it you can use the arrow keys or your mouse wheel to go to the next picture.
We arrived at the Heavy Seas Beer and Oyster Fest about 45 minutes after it started.
There was plenty of action, but I headed straight for the closest taps for a Märzen.
Right after that beer I ran into owner, Hugh Sissons.
He recommend I try the Black Cannon Black IPA before it ran out, so I did.
There was a good crowd on hand for the fest.
And it was really cool to see where they brew the beer.
Food was included, and the shrimp sandwiches were perfect!!
1:07 p.m., and just in time.
Fried Oyster sliders. I had to take this picture quickly because they were going fast.
In the back of the brewery there was a two tap setup, so I grabbed another Märzen.
Jonathan (a serious oyster expert) was on his 3-4 plate.
He and Kelli love going to oyster fests together.
There also was live music playing all day.
Huge was signing his new book Brewing in Baltimore, with Author Maureen O'Prey. He wrote the forward.
His book can be bought from Arcadia Publishing If you’re interested in buying it.
Last picture before I hung up the camera for the day was Kelli getting oyster ice cream...it wasn't good. It tasted like an oyster/seafood soup.
