What is Harpoon Championships of New England Barbecue all about?The Harpoon Championships of New England Barbecue gives us an excuse to celebrate the summer in the best way we know how: by pairing fresh Harpoon beer with some of the world’s best barbecue. Competitive barbecue teams from all over descend upon our Windsor brewery to compete to be crowned New England champ. Bring friends - we’ll supply the beer (and the napkins).
