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!

This year we celebrated 30 years – 30 years of brewing independence, countless festivals, and some pretty unforgettable beer drinking stories with friends and fans alike. As we looked back over our incredible history, we realized one thing: because we are beer drinkers, we all have amazing stories to tell. And we want to hear them! Now we know what you’re thinking, “I don’t have any that aren’t (insert: illegal, inappropriate, foul, etc.) to share.” So over the next few weeks, we invite you to take a look at some of our favorites so that you may feel inspired to tell us yours. Don’t be shy! And don’t worry, you can remain anonymous so grandma never hears about that time you had some beers and streaked the neighborhood :) No great story ever started with, " I was eating a salad, and" so grab some beers, your friends, and cheers to all the awesome stories we share because of beer!
Here are few fan submissions to get you thinking and learn more at www.harpoon30.com!
This One's For You Papi
“It was cold, and we had standing room only tix. We positioned ourselves near one of the Harpoon stands and watched as the bases loaded...Papi up....Torii flips...Grand Slam! Harpoon IPA always brings us luck at Fenway!” - Anonymous Beer Drinkers
60 Years, 60 Beers
“I turned 60 this year and for a present, my two boys got together and gave me 60 beers, 30 from NH where #1 son lives and 30 from Maine where #2 son lives. They were all different, brews from breweries in their respective states!” – Beer Drinker, Kevin Mager
Cheers to 21
“My favorite memory was coming to Harpoon on my 21st birthday some odd years ago, before the great fantastic beer hall, and before I had to wait in crazy lines to get in (LOL you’re totally worth the lines, though!). I would spend time at Harpoon with my dad and sister having a fun day, drinking some of our favorite beers (for me, legally for the first time!). Thanks, Harpoon happy 30th! Here's to 30 more! – Beer Drinker, Emily Dahlstedt
