I am doing a job that I love for a company that I love because of Harpoon Dark. On my first trip to Boston a bunch of years back, my buddy Johnny took me to his favorite place in Boston, the Harpoon Brewery. I wasn’t too familiar with Harpoon beer, besides their IPA, so I gave it a shot. The Beer Hall hadn’t opened yet, so we took a tour and hung around the tasting room. That is where I first tried Harpoon Dark and was instantly hooked. I wasn’t too much of a craft beer guy at that time but I tried a few beers that day. Harpoon Dark was far and beyond the best beer I’d ever had. It introduced me to the exploding world of craft beer. Every trip to Boston from that time forward started and ended at Harpoon. I’d head right there from the airport, and I’d stop again days later on the trip back to Logan. My quest for Dark one day last winter led me to a job opportunity on the Harpoon site entitled Brewery Representative – WNY. A few months and interviews later I was working a dream job for my favorite brewery selling my favorite beer and I owe it all to Harpoon Dark.

Moving sucks. You have to pack up all of your belongings, completely transplant yourself into a new location and make all new friends. It’s like college, except much less fun. Until you find out that your next door neighbor LOVES Leviathan IPA. After a long weekend of early mornings and late evenings of schlepping boxes, we passed by a couple on our floor in the new place as we had just finished unpacking and saw them with a pizza and a 4-pack of Leviathan IPA! "Hell yes!" I thought as a Harpoon employee! This guy knows what’s up. After chatting for a few minutes, they invited us over for a night of pizza and Leviathans! It’s safe to say that the next morning was a little rough, though…
