In the heat of the summer, Harpoon’s employee owners partake in an annual homebrew showdown called the Owner’s Cup.

This year’s band of champions drew fast with a Southwestern take on the New England IPA. Brewed with a blend of tropical fruits and Citra, Mosaic, & Falconer’s Flight hops, Bandito! also packs a subtle punch of heat from the addition of real jalapeño.
