We broke out the sweatshirts and puffy jackets a few weeks ago, which can only mean one thing … long underwear and snow is up next! As avid skiers at the brewery, all we can say is … we’re freaking excited for the winter. We’ll be hitting the slopes, sippin’ on UFO White and Winter Blonde, and spending plenty of nights by the fireplace with friends.
And what’s most exciting about this? Today UFO launches the Winter White Out Sweepstakes which gives one lucky fan (and three of their friends) a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Sugarbush Mountain in Warren, Vermont, to do the same! From now until January 16th, 2017, you’ll have a chance to win a trip for four in March 2017 that includes lift passes, lodging, travel, a VISA gift card and lots and lots of UFO (duh).
So, how do you win? Text UFO to 82257 or go to www.ufobeer.com to enter! See you on the slopes!

We teamed up with our friends from Late July Snacks to put together some Harpoon beer and chip pairings to help make tailgating, holiday parties, and any other food and beer required shenanigans you get into this season, a breeze. So leave the fancy fruit kabobs and 12-ingredient crab dip to someone else and do yourself a solid by picking up these beer and chip duo’s:
1. Jalapeño Lime Tortilla Chips with Harpoon IPA
Made with whole ground yellow corn and seasoned with a bold kick of jalapeño pepper and fresh lime, you simply can’t be anything but happy while munching on these bad boys. And much like our IPA, no single ingredient dominates the chip experience which is why Harpoon IPA is our go-to pairing. Grab a bag, a 6er, some friends, and enjoy!
2.Nacho Chipotle Tortilla Chips with Harpoon Take 5
These chips are generously covered in organic cheese blended with a hint of chipotle pepper. In a word: addictive! You want a beer that’s delicious, but not overpowering. That’s why we recommend Harpoon Take 5, our session IPA. And you know the cheese dust you get on your fingers after eating a whole bunch of chips? These make that guilty pleasure like 10 times better. So we’ve heard…
3. Sea Salt Multigrain Tortilla Chips with Harpoon Octoberfest
Lightly salted & crunchy, made with whole grains and seeds, Late July’s Sea Salt Multigrain tortilla chip is a crowd pleaser. Speaking of crowds, our Marzen-style beer, Harpoon Octoberfest, was brewed with one celebratory festival in mind, Harpoon’s version of Octoberfest celebrated at our breweries every year! This full-bodied, smooth, and malty beer stacks up well against all that multigrain goodness.
4.Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips with UFO Pumpkin
Warning - You’re going to want to crush an entire bag of these perfectly sweetened and lightly salted sweet potato chips in one sitting. Best have a similarly crushable beer on hand, like UFO Pumpkin. Let this light, crisp, refreshing beer help you wash down all that deliciousness.
5. Organic Sea Salt Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips and UFO White
Have you ever felt a tad self-conscious about how many times the waitress has asked your table “Would you like more chips?” Devour Late July’s Sea Salt Thin and Crispy Restaurant Style tortilla chips, with a UFO White in the comfort of your own home. Brewed with orange peel and coriander, UFO White is a nice, judgment-free, companion to these delicious chips.
6. Bacon Habanero Tortilla Chips and Harpoon Sweet Spot
Spicy habanero peppers play nice with sweet, smoky bacon in these finger licking good chips. Holy yum! Wash these puppies down with a refreshing, not too hoppy, not too malty, full-flavored beer like Harpoon Sweet Spot. Both the chips and the beer will go quick… plan ahead and stock up appropriately!
