16 months in the making, what began as an RV excursion, a couple of beers, and an idea shared amongst friends has become the sweet reality known as “ORANGE IS THE NEW STOUT.”  Center of the Universe and O’Connor Brewing proudly present an imperial chocolate stout crafted with oranges and sea salt. Like a liquid chocolate truffle, its deep, rich flavors are sure to keep your spirits warm and bright all winter long.  The stout is 10.5% in alcohol by contact, but you wouldn’t know it with it’s ultra smooth finish.

Winter Storm may be Hugh’s favorite beer in the Heavy Seas catalogue. Our winter ale draws on hops from the West Coast and the UK for its pronounced bitterness. A mix of pale and darker malts give it its tawny color and its bigger body. True to the style, Winter Storm’s aroma is nutty malts and earthy hops. This is a perfect fall beer, especially because of its warming qualities.

Brewed with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust.

Hops are the name of the game with a Double IPA, but we knew we had to take it one step further. With Hop Bullet, we’re using a new technique, hitting the beer with a double-barreled blast of Magnum hops and lupulin dust—pure, concentrated hop flavor—directly into the tank to emphasize the intense pine and citrus flavors of classic West Coast hops.


Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell’s Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell’s repertoire.

Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honey provide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.

Hopslam is best enjoyed as fresh as possible.

Alcohol By Volume:

One of the most sought-after stouts in Bell’s history, Black Note Stout blends the complex aromatics of Expedition Stout with the velvety smooth texture of Double Cream Stout, each aged in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months.

The resulting harmony of flavors captures the finest features of all three components: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso and dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of the bourbon barrel.

Aimed squarely at the stout and bourbon aficionados, Black Note makes a grand statement about the art of the dark.

Alcohol By Volume:

It’s impossible to forget your first squeeze. Once a year, as the newest humulus lupulus harvest arrives at Tröegs, we blend these super-fresh hops into an Imperial Amber Ale. Excessively dry-hopped, Nugget Nectar is an explosion of pine, resin and mango.




About the Beer: Our 2017 Reserve Series continues with Raspberry Truffle W-n-B. Brweed with pure liquid cacao, raspberry, and coffee from Jittery Joe’s, this delectable Imperial Stout is a dessert lover’s dream come true.

Pastiche is a barrel-aged blend of four different ales aged in twice as many barrels. The beers in this blend use various local malts and were created specifically for Pastiche by our team of senior brewers. Barrels included in the aging process were: rye whiskey, vermouth, port, rum, bourbon, red wine, gin, and brandy. After aging the beers between three and four months, the brewers got together and blended them all into a single, unified whole called Pastiche. This complex amber beer contains notes of caramel, dried fruit, spirits, and oak.

Sinner’s Son is ripe with age, driven to the cellar for months to mature in bourbon barrels. Just prior to bottling, a fresh blend of coffee and espresso beans from the JavaVino farm was introduced to harmonize with the roasted malts and bring balance to its complex barrel aged soul. This imperial stout is decadent at 12.4% ABV with rich chocolate and vanilla notes, a velvety mouthfeel and hints of oak.

Choklat Oranj hit the ground running in 2015, joining our highly regarded, high gravity Blackwater Dessert Beer Series at a 99 rating on Ratebeer.com. This delicious dessert stout is brewed with chocolate and orange peels. Perfect alone, or enjoyed as a float. Scoop organic vanilla bean ice cream into a snifter or pint glass and top with Choklat Oranj. It’s impossible to be disappointed.

Blueberry Tart is the result of two beers blended into one. The first beer is a kettle soured blonde ale. The second is a simple imperial wheat ale into which we add a whole lot of blueberry puree. This process achieves a bright and juicy blueberry aroma and a complex flavor character throughout each sip. At first it is bright and juicy, followed by sweet and round in the middle, and ending with a mild tartness that en-courages another mouthful. Slight notes of pie crust emerge in the aftertaste of this imperial ale.


Our Siren Noire isn’t your father’s chocolate stout. We’ve used almost 3 pounds of Belgian coco nibs per barrel. We’ve aged it for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey – but without being extraordinarily sweet. Brewers Gold hops contribute an earthy spiciness, with notes of black current.

The newest addition to the Cannon Crew, AmeriCannon is a bold pale ale that’s been double dry-hopped with Centennial hops and Simcoe lupulin hop powder. With an ABV that won’t turn you into a Loose Cannon, it’s a true celebration of American independence. The first Heavy Seas beer to utilize lupulin hop powder, AmeriCannon is an intensely flavorful Pale Ale. AmeriCannon is also the first Heavy Seas beer to carry the Brewers Association Independent Craft seal, AmeriCannon embodies everything that Heavy Seas stands for: We are Fearless. Bold. Independent.
