Pic(k) of the Week: Old & New in Canton

Old & new in Canton

Looking out from a dining room table, at the Heavy Seas Alehouse, in the Canton neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland. The restaurant, which opened only in February of this year, is located in a re-developed building that once housed the Holland Tack Factory.

For over 90 years. Holland fasteners went into such things as major league baseballs, school bulletin boards and sofas. During the Civil War, the building served as a hospital for Confederate soldiers.

Maryland law prohibits a brewery from brewing in more than one location. Thus, the Alehouse uses the name, logo, and graphics of the Heavy Seas Brewery under license, but does not itself brew. True to its name, it serves only the beers of Heavy Seas: two cask beers and ten draft taps at any one time. The brewery itself is located a few miles away, in Halethorpe, Maryland.

  • Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virgina— I sell the beers of Heavy Seas Brewing.
