It all started with friendship and a shared love of beer. The only thing missing was a choice of quality beer and a great beer culture. So three friends/beer lovers took it into their own hands, hired a brewer, and brewed the beer they wanted to drink. It was deeper in color, fuller in flavor, higher in quality, and nothing like anyone in Boston had tasted. That was 30 years ago, and the beginning of the craft beer revolution. Things have changed quite a bit since then, but some things remain the same: quality matters and being passionate about the beer you drink matters. But above all, sharing great beer with friends matters most.
Harpoon Ale is fruity, balanced, and mild. Harpoon’s proprietary yeast strain produces a signature fruity aroma, which is noticeable up front. The malt combination adds a delicate caramel note. The malty, fruity character is nicely balanced by the mild hop bitterness. It has a smooth, medium body. The finish is crisp but not dry.
