Clipper City MärzHon
A classic marzen style lager, amber in color with a rich, toasty malt flavor and finish. Well balanced and smooth. Marzen is the style of beer traditionally associated with Oktoberfest. The name is a play on words since in Baltimore, everyone is “hon!” Once a year this beer gets a special “Oktoberfest” label.
Clipper City Gold Ale
A bronze medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival in 2000, this ale was the Official Beer of the Baltimore Bicentennial in 1997. Well rounded and complex, with a deep golden color, this is an American style ale with a distinct fruity pallet and floral, spicy hop aromas.
Clipper City Pale Ale
As a counterpoint to the Gold, our Pale Ale is distinctly British in character with a firm malt character and a crisp, angular hop finish. Amber in color with a nice earthy aroma.
Silver Medal- English Style Pale Ale- 2008 GABF
Gold Medal- Pale Ale -2008 Governor’s Cup
From the centuries-old tradition of Belgian Abbey monks comes our “Über Abbey” Ale. Aromatic and full bodied, pouring deep burgundy in color, it’s bold, it’s Heavy Seas. Grab a line…Holy Sheet!…or you’ll be swept overboard. Seasonally available in February while supplies last.

Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale
Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale – called Hop 3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! Also the beer is hopped 3 ways – in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped. Winner of the Overall Best of Show Award in the Maryland State Governor’s Cup 2005 Competition and voted the #1 IPA by Mahaffey’s Pub.
Prior to prohibition virtually all American beers were made from 100% malted barley. This gave the beers a richer, fuller taste than you see today when most beers are made using a high percentage of corn or rice. We researched old brewing archives, and patterned this beer after one that was produced in Baltimore in the early 1940′s.
Small Craft Warning Über pils
We call this beer an Über Pils – a pilsner style bock lager. Rich, malty, and well rounded but with a firm structure of noble hops. Surprisingly pale in color for such a powerful, complex beer.
