Summer is a season tailor-made to taking 5 – the barbecues, the beer, the vacations…the beer. Even still, we’ve all got a lot of things that we have to do every day. Sometimes it feels like summer comes and goes in a flash. But that won’t happen this year – not on our watch! We’ve got some things planned to make sure that you take 5 and smell the hops as often as possible.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be sharing how we plan to Take 5 – through videos, blogs, events, and more. We’ve also called on some of our good friends – experts not only in their fields but on taking 5 – to share how they take advantage of those spontaneous breaks for fun. That’s what Harpoon Take 5 Session IPA is all about – celebrating the moments when you get to do the things you want to be doing.
So stay tuned and be prepared to Take 5 at any moment. Until then, find Take 5 near you!

2. Harpoon IPA
We’re focusing this blog on post-workout beers but let’s be honest, some activities are best with a beer in hand. Harpoon IPA is the perfect choice for those mild activities where sitting and soaking up the scenery is a top priority.

3. Harpoon Summer Beer
Summers can be short, so you’ve got to make the most out of sunny days and warm nights. We brewed this Kolsch-style ale to help you do just that. Crisp and refreshing, it’s a post/during activity beer no brainer.

5. UFO White
Brewed with orange peel and coriander, UFO White is the perfect post-activity beer when you’re looking for something a little different. It will bring you back to the good old days when mom packed you sliced oranges for half-time…except it’s beer, so it’s way better than that.
Pairs well with: Stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, long romantic walks on the beach
6. Harpoon 192
Harpoon 192 is a toast to the Pan-Mass Challenge – to all the riders, volunteers, and staff working hard to fight cancer.

Whether you’re going 192 miles, or around the block, add this to your summer beer list. Plus, for every bottle of Harpoon 192 sold Harpoon Helps will make a $1 donation to the PMC.
