Boston, MA – We all have great stories to tell – we’re beer drinkers. Harpoon Brewery’s story started with three beer drinkers and friends who wanted better beer options. 30 years, two breweries, and hundreds of festivals later, beer has been the foundation for some of the most unforgettable stories, the ones told, retold, and laughed about over and over and again. After all, no great story ever started with, “So I was eating a salad….”
To celebrate Harpoon’s 30th anniversary, for the next several weeks Harpooners will be celebrating beer stories. Harpooners will be sharing their stories and inviting beer drinkers to tell their own. The stories will be collected on www.Harpoon30.com. In addition to written stories, Harpoon will be sharing videos of Harpoon employees and drinkers telling their beer stories. The first video, “Shellfish”, can be viewed at www.Harpoon30.com.
Nothing tells Harpoon’s story better than the beers themselves. So today Harpoon released the Harpoon 30-Pack, a limited edition mix pack comprised of 15 styles of Harpoon beers, two of each style. The beers in the 30-Pack were voted on by Harpoon employees and represent beers throughout Harpoon’s history, many of which haven’t been offered for years, like bottled Harpoon Dark, and some that have just been introduced, like Interrobang. For the full lineup of beers in the Harpoon 30-Pack visit https://harpoon30pack.splashthat.com/.
Harpoon will launch the 30th celebration on Thursday, October 13th at Harpoon’s Beer Hall in Boston. The daylong event will feature special events throughout the day, including an onsite Mosaic Creation, Pop Up Harpooner Stories on Brewery Tours, Tell Your Story on Video, and a Beer Hall Visitor Raffle.

About the Harpoon Brewery:
The Harpoon Brewery was founded by beer lovers Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti. In 1986 Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first brewery to brew commercially in Boston after a dormant period of about 25 years. Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award winning IPA and UFO beers, along with special seasonal selections. In 2000 Harpoon purchased a second brewery in Windsor, VT, making Harpoon the 19th largest craft brewer in the US. Harpoon has since introduced the limited batch 100 Barrel Series and the as well as the all-natural Harpoon Craft Cider made from freshly pressed apples. In August 2014 Harpoon became an employee-owned company. For more information about Harpoon beers and visiting the breweries, visit www.harpoonbrewery.com.
