As you may or may not know, the month of November is an important month for men’s health issues, including testicular cancer, prostate cancer, mental health issues and suicide prevention. Due to the awesome work of The Movember Foundation, men all over the world celebrate “No Shave November” or “Movember”-- growing mustaches throughout the month to raise money and awareness for these pivotal causes. Guys will start out completely clean-shaven on November 1st, and then will grow and groom their carefully-curated mustaches as the month goes on, encouraged by donations from their family and friends.
We’re celebrating our 9th year of Movember here at Harpoon, and through the years, we’ve seen every type of possible mustache sprout up across all of our departments. From thin pencil mustaches to thick super-Mario mustaches to our favorite, “The Sellick Relic,” it always gets a liiiiiiiiittle creepy around the brewery every November. And we couldn’t be more excited.
Want to join Harpoon Helps in the fight?? Check out these three awesome ways to help Harpoon celebrate Movember this month:
- Grow your own mo! Get a group of friends or coworkers together, or grow one on your own. Visit The Movember website? to register your stache and get growin’!
- Starting November 15th, we’ll be putting a special beer on tap at our breweries, called “Harpoon’s Private ’Stache.” When you drink a pint of this Black IPA, at our Boston Beer Hall or at the Riverbend Taps and Beer Garden in Windsor, VT, Harpoon will donate $1 per pint to The Movember Foundation. Yes, folks. It’s that easy. Drink a beer, support men’s health. I’m assuming we don’t need to twist your arm.
- On Wednesday, November 30th, we’re hosting a mustache-themed Movember bash in our Boston Beer Hall to strut our 30-day-old staches and raise even more awareness for the cause! Come compete for Best ‘Stache, eat some Movember-themed pretzels, try our specially-brewed Movember beer, win special mo-themed raffle prizes, and raise a glass to men’s health! Tickets sales will benefit The Movember Foundation. Mo-bros and mo-sistas are all welcome! Tickets go on sale November 1st at 11AM.
We can’t wait to see you and your beautiful mustaches out there this month-- and we can’t wait to see the finished results on November 30th. Until then, join us in raising a glass to men’s health—this month, and every month!

As many of you might have noticed by now, not only is Flannel Friday Amber Ale covered in beautiful flannel, but it sports a furry friend as well. As it turns out, man’s best friend loved modeling by the beer just as much as you enjoyed the liquid. We couldn’t get enough of all the fan photos we received so we put some of our favorites together for you. Check out the wannabe pups of Flannel Friday!
Paint me like one of your French girls!
Friend: You’ve had enough to drink
Nothing ruins your Friday like realizing it's actually Thursday.
Honestly, Sandra, I’m only letting you do this because I’m licking all the empties later...
When you finally get a night alone with bae.
I’m not mad I’m not the Flannel Friday mascot… I’m just disappointed
Seriously Deborah, one 6-pack?!
This dog dressed himself and is looking fresh and we can barely bring ourselves to put pants on.
When you tell someone you’ll be there in 5 but you’re still in your robe just chillin'
Me: I’m not going to drink tonight
*10 minutes later…
So….next beer’s gonna be Caterday Ale right?
