Heavy Seas TreasureFest Makes Seasonal Return

Heavy Seas Beer in Baltimore, Maryland has announced the season return of its Oktoberfest beer, TreasureFest, starting in August.

This American spin on the classic German Oktoberfest style is brewed with German malt and a "lavish blend of German and American hops" and will be available wherever Heavy Seas offerings are available. The full release from the brewery is below.


BALTIMORE, MD – Heavy Seas Beer is excited to reintroduce the limited offering, TreasureFest, an Oktoberfest Lager. This release will be available starting in August in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.

TreasureFest is an American spin on the classic German style. Brewed with imported German malt and lavishly hopped with a blend of German hops in the kettle and dry hopped with American hops, this is a fresh look at the old Oktober stand-by.

“I am a huge fan of Oktoberfest-style beers,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “Their arrival portends the cool, colorful autumn season that is my favorite time of year.  The distinct bready, biscuity malt profile that is their soul speaks to my barley-hearted sensibilities.  I’m thrilled to be able to provide a Heavy Seas twist by dry-hopping our interpretation with floral American hops.  It should be no surprise to those familiar with our beers that we’ve boosted the malt bill and ABV to help keep the robust hopping in balance. If you like Oktoberfest-style beers and enjoy American IPA’s, this beer just might be the love child hybrid you have been waiting for.”
