Developed by Patrick Dahlgren, a Baltimore City restaurateur and stepson of Hugh Sisson, the concept is a natural extension of the Heavy Seas locally brewed beer. Hugh Sisson is the owner of Clipper City Brewing Company (the brewer of Heavy Seas Beer) and former owner of the much beloved Federal Hill institution, Sisson’s which was also Maryland’s first brewpub.
The neighborhood tavern inspired décor features a 40’ long bar, dark woods, comfortable seating, flat screens and a unique outdoor beer garden. Offering first class food and beer pairings, an array of specialty beer and cask ales, eight Heavy Seas Beers on tap, a raw bar and the return of the growler to Baltimore. Heavy Seas Ale House is a required experience for beer lovers. Our menu features fresh and seasonal ingredients that we source locally whenever possible. The dishes are simple in appearance with bold and assertive flavors that stand up to the intense beers we are known for…ARRRRGGGHHHH!
The Alehouse is located in the Tack Factory building and combines the charm and character of the historic space with the bold industrial elements reminiscent of the Holland Tack Factory that occupied the building for more than 90 years. The Holland fasteners went into major league baseballs, countless school bulletin boards and enough sofas to seat all of Baltimore. During the Civil War, the building served as a hospital for Confederate soldiers. We are proud to continue the Charm City tradition of this extraordinary space!
