Since 1998 Harpoon has been a proud supporter of the Pan-Mass Challenge (PMC), pouring beers for weary cyclists who’ve ridden up to 192 miles for one reason: to fight cancer. This beer is a toast to the riders, volunteers, PMC staff, and all who make this incredible ride happen each year. For every bottle and pint of Harpoon 192 sold, Harpoon Helps will make a $1 donation to the PMC. For more info about the PMC visit www.pmc.org. Closer by the mile, closer by the pint.
Many Harpooners have been involved in the PMC in varying ways over the years. We took a moment to ask some of the folks who have been behind the taps and in the saddle of the PMC what their favorite thing about the PMC is and why it holds significance to them here.

Appearance: Deep ruby red
Aroma: Big, tropical, fruity aroma
Taste: A crisp, authoritative bitterness balances a rich maltiness
Finish: Rich and malty with lingering bitterness
