Mixing beer, albeit not for everyone (we respect you purists out there!), can produce some delicious combinations. To prove it, we created the Harpoon Apple Pie! To make, mix one part Harpoon Craft Cider and one part Harpoon Winter Warmer, and enjoy. You might surprise yourself with a new favorite holiday creation. After all, the math is simple, beer + cider = delicious. Cheers!

It’s pretty common for us Harpooners to have food on the brain. Besides thinking about beer, we are often sharing recipes, cooking with beer, and planning perfect food/beer pairings. But this time of year in particular, we try to take it a bit farther by bringing to light the issue of food insecurity and by fundraising for organizations that provide meals to our neighbors in need. Here are a couple ways you’ve helped us to try to make sure none of our neighbors go hungry this holiday season:
- For every 6-pack of Grateful Harvest Cranberry Ale sold, we donate $1 to the local food bank where it was purchased. We think the only thing better than a perfectly paired holiday beer is to be able to give back while you enjoy it. Thanks to you, since we first started brewing this beer a few years ago, we’ve donated more than $132,000 to food banks! Try using our Beer Finder to find where it is available near you.
- When we asked you to help us fundraise for the Greater Boston Food Bank, you didn’t hesitate! We served our annual Harpoon Helps Grateful Harvest Dinner to a sold-out crowd at our Boston brewery on Sunday, November 9th. After a “Harpoon-style” Thanksgiving meal and a couple pints (and pretzels!), you helped us raise $8,700 for the Greater Boston Food Bank! Check out the photos from the evening.
- You grabbed your bikes and rode to fight hunger in Vermont! After this year’s Harpoon Point to Point ride, donations just kept coming in. We just recently tallied the total, and presented a check to the Vermont Foodbank for a record breaking $188,267 for Vermonters in need!
Whether you sorted food with us at a food shelf, rode the Harpoon Point to Point, or picked up a 6-pack of Grateful Harvest this season, THANK YOU for your help in fighting hunger this holiday season!
