Best of Baltimore 2017

Best beer: Heavy Seas Beer & Union Craft Brewing’s Olde Ale

Two of Baltimore’s most prominent breweries came together for an unexpected collaboration, and the result is excellent. Old Ale is Union and Heavy Seas’ ode to England’s historic dark, malt-forward brew. Made with Domino sugar as a nod to the breweries’ shared home, the Old Ale pushes its rich chocolate and pumpernickel notes forward, ending with a pleasantly dry finish. Released in 22-ounce bottles and on draft in discerning bars around the city, this limited-run collaboration is worth the search. hsbeer.comunioncraftbrewing.com
