Bright colors saturate the background at Fat Tuesday's, a New Orleans-styled pub in Fairfax, Virginia, as a representative of Heavy Seas Brewing pours a pint from a cask of Loose Cannon IPA (infused, in the cask, with grapefruit zest and Maryland-grown Cascade hops).
The nautically-themed, Baltimore, Maryland-based, brewery was celebrating International Talk Like A Pirate Day by tapping casks of its India Pale Ale, simultaneously, in over forty establishments, in eleven states and the District of Columbia, in an attempt to establish a Guinness Book of World Records record for the most casks of the same beer tapped at the same time.
