I think beyond the simple, everyday enjoyments I get from having a cold beer with my team and coworkers at the end of the day, I love life on the water most. I have had an extraordinary attachment to the ocean and fishing since childhood, and always having a cooler stocked with cold Harpoon beers has helped enhance that. Now that we have started packaging Harpoon and UFO beers in boat-friendly cans, I am always able to enjoy my two favorite things simultaneously, beer and fishing. Not that we have a rough work life, but a day I spend out fishing is a day I do not spend in traffic, at work, changing diapers etc. Most often it is a day I spend with people I care about most, family and friends (I don't invite many people out on the boat I wouldn't enjoy spending a few hours with). The sound the first icy-cold IPA of the day makes when opened is followed immediately by an audible sigh of relief and enjoyment, then a deep breath inhaling the sweet aroma of salt air and diesel fuel. The rest of the day follows more or less the same, time spent outside in the sun, talking with my father about music, fishing tactics, family, and life. Maybe if we are lucky our relaxing afternoon is pleasantly interrupted by a screaming reel and the chaos that ensues, but if not that's fine too. Bad day fishing beats a good day working anytime, especially if you have had a couple beers.

I live by the ocean and love having my toes in the sand. All summer, my friends and I spend kayaking, swimming and just enjoying each other's company, all with cold Harpoon IPA and Harpoon Take 5. Being outside, with friends and Harpoon is the epitome of Love Beer Love Life to me!

To me "Love Beer. Love Life" means to enjoy whatever I'm doing in the moment. Whether it's after a race and enjoying a Harpoon, or at a BBQ with friends, live in the moment and love life (after posting on social media of course). There's nothing better than hanging at the beach or pool with friends and enjoying a few Harpoon IPAs, or going for a run and re-carbing with a Long Thaw!

Enjoying Harpoon in an environment you enjoy - it's as simple as that! For me it's summer softball post softball league Harpoon pints at the local bar.

Whether it’s a ski weekend with friends filled with Harpoon, plenty of games and delicious food, a day at the beach or a Sunday night bowling league, nothing says Love Beer. Love Life. more than spending time with people who make you laugh all while enjoying a Harpoon in your hand. Don't get me wrong, I love my alone time on the couch just like everyone else. But when I'm surrounded by people having a good time and enjoying each other’s company, I couldn't be any happier.
