Harpoon Brewery Releases Rec. League Pale Ale

BOSTON & WINDSOR, Vt. – Searching for something more social than water after your flag football game? Feeling like you have earned something special after that 10K? Harpoon Brewery knows the feeling. That is why the craft brewery is rolling out Harpoon Rec. League, a unique hoppy, hazy pale ale meant to celebrate life’s small victories – and huge celebrations.

Brewed with unique ingredients like buckwheat kasha, which provides important minerals and B vitamins; chia seeds that are high in fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants; and Mediterranean sea salt that offers a powerful source of electrolytes — Rec. League gives beer lovers multiple reasons to feel good about each sip. For all the times you want flavor and need drinkability, Rec. League is a game-changer. Coming in at 3.8 percent ABV and only 120 calories per 12 oz. serving, this gold-medal winning addition to our year-round lineup is perfect for before, during, after or while contemplating your next workout.

“Fans of Harpoon do more than drink beer – they’re running road races, working out with friends, and hitting the slopes. We wanted to make a beer that celebrates and complements this active lifestyle,” said Tom Graham, innovation brewer at Harpoon Brewery and mastermind behind the beer.

Rec. League is Harpoon Brewery’s most refreshing pale ale yet. A light and crispy yet characteristically hoppy beer, this hazy pale ale is thirst-quenching and refreshing, making Rec. League the newest lower-calorie option that does not sacrifice flavor.

Rec. League is now available throughout the U.S. in 4-pack 16 oz. cans and 15-pack 12 oz. cans. Beer drinkers can also try the beer at Harpoon’s brewery locations in Boston, Massachusetts and Windsor, Vermont.
