We had a great year of Harpoon X-Night's at our Boston Beer Hall in 2014 and we're very excited to announce the schedule for 2015!
What is Harpoon X-Night?
If you’ve visited our brewery, you may have noticed that on some of our tap handles, the name of the beer has been hand written in chalk. These are our “pilot beers” – unique batches from our 10 barrel pilot system that are brewed specifically to be served in our Beer Hall. Some of these beers are in the final stages of recipe formulation prior to their release on a larger scale. Others are simply creative experiments in which the brewers are trying out different brewing techniques or new raw materials. As fans of our beer, we thought you might enjoy being one of the first to taste our latest pilot batches. That is the experience of Harpoon X-Night!
Every month, you’ll have the unique opportunity to taste the latest pilot batch and hear firsthand, from the Harpoon brewer who created it, the inspiration behind the beer. You’ll also be able to ask the brewer any questions you might have about their beer while you enjoy it. To give this special night more of a “mug club” feel, you’ll get a personalized 16 oz mug etched with your name and the date of the event! Then, each month you can return with your mug and have it re-etched with the date of the X-Night you are currently attending. Of course, your mug won’t just be etched; it will be filled with the pilot beer for that night. After X-Night, we'll email you a post event survey to get your feedback about the beer and your experience.
Tickets are first come first served and are $20. You may purchase up to four tickets for Harpoon X-night. During the evening, in addition to the pilot, we will have our entire line up of beers and freshly baked pretzels available for purchase. You must be 21+ to attend. We won’t be releasing the featured pilot beer in advance of these nights. These beers may be styles you have not tasted before, so come ready to try anything!
