Harpoon Introduces UFO Gingerland

harpoon-logoBOSTON, MA — Brewed, not baked. Poured, not sliced. Inspired by a classic tale and deliciously spiced. The Harpoon Brewery is pleased to introduce UFO Gingerland, a gingerbread-inspired beer brewed with cinnamon, clove, and ginger. This new seasonal offering from the brewer’s popular UFO series, a line of unfiltered beers, has arrived for the winter season in bottles, cans, and on draft. With a malty sweetness and a clean, crisp ginger finish, UFO Gingerland is a great companion to the New England winter.

“Winter is a fantastic beer drinking season, so we had a lot of fun brewing different test batches on our pilot system to come up with the perfect beer to be our first UFO winter seasonal offering,” says Harpoon CEO and co-founder Dan Kenary. “We’ve brewed with ginger many times over the years and love the warm character that it lends to a beer. The cinnamon and clove along with the malt profile balance out the beer nicely with a bit of sweetness. This beer will make for some memorable wintertime gatherings.”

About the Harpoon Brewery

The Harpoon Brewery was founded by beer lovers Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti.

Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award winning IPA and UFO White beers, along with special seasonal selections. In 2000 Harpoon purchased a second brewery in Windsor, VT, making Harpoon the 12th largest craft brewer in the US.
