A Modern Throwback. Back in ’86, Harpoon was founded on the belief that good times could become great with better beer. First brewed by our founders and dubbed “Rich and Dan’s Rye IPA,” the original release of this hoppy Rye Ale was meant to celebrate that spirit. Years later—and with some modern modifications—a new generation now gets to enjoy it. From the lift to the lodge to just some backyard sledding, let the good times become great— cheers!
