Introducing Harpoon Boston Irish Stout
By: Amanda - Loves Beer and Life Published:
Yes you read that right. This St. Patrick’s Day we’ll be rolling out the barrels of our latest beer - Harpoon Boston Irish Stout. This Irish stout has quickly become a brewery favorite, and has been the product of internal and external research and development (in other words, we’ve been sampling a lot of stouts!)
The idea behind Harpoon creating an Irish Stout is not new. We tried it once in the 90’s as a spring seasonal, but decided on what is now our Harpoon Celtic Red. However, 20 years later, we got the urge to try our hand at it again. We brewed, we tasted, we tested it at select bars in Boston and took everyone’s feedback into consideration and what resulted is something that we are truly proud of.
This draft-only Irish stout was made with six different types of malt, including roasted and chocolate, with a small dose of Willamette hops.
This is truly a Boston Irish Stout – made in Boston, by Boston, for Boston.
We've been brewing here for 26 years, and have always enjoyed the mix of great beer and good friends that Boston’s pub culture inspires. Hopefully we've helped create that combination here at the Brewery as well, but the Irish pub may have been one of the first inspirations, and we wanted to pay tribute to it. So we hope to raise a pint of Harpoon Boston Irish Stout with you soon!
