Default Clipper City

Has anyone ever heard of or had Clipper City Beer out of Baltimore, Md? I had their BALTOMARZHON last night and I thought it was pretty good. I was just wondering what other peoples opinion is about them.

I've had their Loose Cannon, which is a pretty phenomenal beer.

Only have had Loose Canon as well. Very good beer...

Plan to get to Clipper City at some point... It's only about 1.5 hours from here and I usually go to Inner Harbor at least once or twice a summer. Only made it once this summer and I was running late for an O's game, so didn't get to visit the CC Brewpub or whatever its called.

We've been getting the Clipper City Heavy Seas Sampler 12-pack locally for a while, mostly in the specialty beer shops though. They have some great beers, especially the Loose Cannon Hop^3 Ale and Red Skies at Night Saison. I also found their Small Craft Warning Uber Pils at a local draft house.

Love the fact that their beers are all high gravity!

I've had Loose Cannon and one other that I really can't recall standing out...perhaps the small craft warning. Decent stuff but didn't really motivate me beyond the two that I have had.

Clipper City rocks...the Heavy Seas beers are all higher gravity, but the BaltiMarzHon, Gold, McHenry, and Oxford Rasberry are all still good. The Heavy Seas are of course on another level. Clipper City Gold was my preferred session beer for a while a few years ago.

I prefer heavily hopped beer, so I love their uber-pils and Loose Cannon (which I would call an IPA). I had the Below Decks barleywine out of a firkin a few months ago during American Craft Brew week. I haven't had the Hang Ten Weizen Doppelbock (!) yet.

I think the Loose Cannon is an awesome beer - great flavor, balanced with some sweetness, tons of hop flavor, and a really nice hop aroma. Anyone have any details? This one would be great to clone!

My wife and I bought a case of the Heavy Seas Peg Leg Imperial Stout. It's a killer, complex beer. The Loose Cannon and UberPils are also great.

I just picked up some Peg Leg yesterday. Very interesting...I thought it tasted more like a porter than a stout but I dug it either way.
