Harpoon is loading up the van this summer and fall and heading on a road trip of New England. Bags are packed. Beer is on ice. And the grill is ready to be fired up! Of course, the journey is just as important as the destination, and that’s why we need help from our Friends.
After a few trips, our Friends Of Harpoon did not disappoint! You’ve nominated your office for a cold Harpoon with your colleagues and plenty of other fun activities that could be capped off with a fresh beer in hand.
Picture this. It’s Friday afternoon after a long week of work and the Harpoon vans pull into your parking lot. You and your colleagues cap off another 40 hours with a fresh Harpoon Beer. Now that’s a great ending to your week, or a better start to your weekend!
You’ve joined us at your favorite local bar to tap a limited edition cask beer, or to celebrate 20 years of IPA with an IPA flight night. You’re loving life, spending the night drinking with your best friends and enjoying some of New England’s best beers.
You were gracious enough to share your own brews at a homebrew competition, and spend an afternoon cleaning up the park to support your community and our charitable arm, Harpoon Helps. And you’ve soaked up the sun enjoying a lazy river paddle, and braved the rain for a weekend Fun Run jogging for beers. When our activities are always capped off with a cold Harpoon beer, the weather is no concern for us!
Ready to join us? Our upcoming locations include:
- Portsmouth, NH (7/25 & 7/26)
- Buffalo, NY (9/5 - 9/7)
- Northampton, MA (9/26 - 9/29)

The Harpoon Road Trip Crew
By: Harpoon Helps & Kappy's Published:
The Harpoon Brewery has been an integral part of The Pan Mass Challenge since 1998. Over the course of the 3 day event, (the kickoff party in Sturbridge, and the finish lines in Bourne and in Provincetown), Harpoon donates and helps serve over 150 kegs of its locally brewed beers to the 5,500 tired and thirsty cyclists. It is not uncommon throughout the course of the weekend to hear: “I’ve been thinking about this beer all day!” or “This is the reason I was able to push myself through to the end!” And most importantly: “Thank you!”
The rider and volunteer experience at the PMC is top notch. It is a community of caring, wonderful people and anyone who participates knows that it is a very special event. Harpoon is proud to be a part of such important fundraiser for the Dana Faber Cancer Center, and to be included in the life long memories the ride creates. Harpoon believes that beer is part of a healthy, active lifestyle and in this case: “every great ride deserves a great beer!”
Kappy’s has also been a long time supporter of the PMC and has partnered with Harpoon to raise more funds for the PMC this year. For every 12 pack of Harpoon or UFO sold in July, $1 is donated to the PMC.
