With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, it’s only right that we come up with an Irish inspired dish. But rather than coming up with one on our own, we looked to an expert: Luka Stipanov at Barracuda Tavern located in Downtown Boston. Luka whipped up this beer-infused corned beef dish that will pair perfectively with your St. Patrick’s festivities (and Harpoon beers). Thanks, Luka!
Harpoon IPA Corned Beef
Appx. 4-6 servings
- 2 lbs Corned Beef
- 1/2 head Green Cabbage
- 2 large Idaho Potatoes
- 2 large Carrots
- 2 12oz bottles Harpoon IPA
- 16 oz Water
- 1 tbsp Peppercorns
- 1 tsp Sea salt
- 1 Bay Leaf
Horseradish Parsley Cream Sauce
- 1/2 cup regular mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tbsp minced horseradish
- 1/2 tbsp spoon of dried parsley
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In deep pan submerge the corned beef in beer and water. Add peppercorns, sea salt and bay leaves. Cover and slow boil for 3.5 hours.
2. In the meantime cut potatoes, carrots and cabbage in large pieces and add it to the pot after 3.5 hours and boil for another 30 minutes.
3. After of total of 4 hours, set aside and let it rest.
4. While waiting, make horseradish parsley cream sauce by gently blending together all of the ingredients.
5. After resting for about 30 minutes, slice corned beef in 2"x4" pieces.
6. Plate to your liking, drizzle the sauce over whole plate evenly and enjoy. Corned beef will always taste better if it rests an extra day. And if it’s paired with a Harpoon IPA.

Rugged Maniac is headed to Rockingham, North Carolina on 5/14. To find out a little more about all the awesomeness that the nearby city of Charlotte has to offer, we asked our North Carolina Brewery Representative, Nate Dean, for tips on where to drink Harpoon, where to eat, and what to do…
“If you’re heading to Rockingham for Rugged Maniac, don’t miss Charlotte on your way! It’s a fun city with a lot to do. Here are some of my favorite spots to enjoy the city – and a Harpoon:”
- Dandelion Market – great place for brunch, lunch AND dinner! Ask for a fresh pint of UFO White on tap.
- Draught – located next to the Bank of America Stadium and the Panther’s practice field, this is a fun spot to stop in for a quick lunch or afternoon brew.
- The Workman’s Friend – if you’re looking for delicious food and an awesome backyard patio, look no further. Definitely a must-visit while you’re in Charlotte!
- United States National Whitewater Center – if you’re someone who is up for anything and loves adventure, make sure to plan an extra day in your trip to visit the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Enjoy whitewater rafting and kayaking, flatwater kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, zip lines, ropes courses, a canopy tour, and mountain biking trails.
- Bank of America Stadium – whether you’re a football fan or not, visiting the Panther’s stadium is a fun time. Jump on their public tour on Friday, 5/13, at 10:30 AM or 12 PM for a chance to see the stadium up close and personal.
- Time Warner Cable Arena – Home of the Charlotte Hornets. Another great stadium for a tour.
