Who knew, back in 1993, that IPA would become such a beloved style? It was both surprising and gratifying to see our pioneering attempt at a craft IPA get such a positive response. What we thought would be a summer seasonal turned into our flagship, and inspired an exploration of the style that goes on to this day (stay tuned for #50 in the 100 Barrel Series!). The IPA Adventure Mix Pack puts four great IPAs and a 20+ year journey into a single box. Whether you’re looking for the beautiful balance of a New England-style IPA or a more pronounced hop flavor found in Rich & Dan’s Rye IPA, the IPA Adventure has an IPA for you and your friends.
Our IPA Adventure Mix Pack includes Harpoon IPA, Rich & Dan's Rye IPA, The Long Thaw White IPA, and Black IPA. Whichever type of hop experience your palate craves, this mix pack has a little something for us all.
Find it in a store near you and tell us which ones are your favorite on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using #IPAadventure.

I often see the term “Christmas in your mouth” in reference to our seasonal beer, Harpoon Winter Warmer. Its rich aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg reminds me of family and friend get-togethers, and the beers that help make the holidays so festive and special. This holiday season, consider sparing 12 ounces for this Honey and Winter Warmer Spice cake. Adapted from Booze Cakes, this heartwarming combination of spices, honey, and Harpoon Winter Warmer will have you thinking of new ways to use your favorite seasonal brews. And like our beer, this cake is best shared with friends and family. Enjoy!
Honey & Winter Warmer Spice Cake
Makes one 9×13-inch cake
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon all-spice
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup honey
12 ounces (1 1/2 cups) Harpoon Winter Warmer (Plus an additional 12 ounces to sip on while you bake!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9×13-inch pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment, cream together butter, sugars, spices and lemon zest. Mixture may look crumbly, but mix for about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition.
Beat in the lemon juice and honey.
Add the flour mixture and Harpoon Winter Warmer. Alternating. First add a third of the flour mixture, mix. Add half of the beer, mix. Add the second third of flour, the rest of the beer. Mix. Then finally add the last third of the flour. Beat the batter on high speed for 30 seconds. The batter will be loose and smooth.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake in the upper third of the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and some roasted pecans. Enjoy!
