On Tap

The limited edition Harpoon pilot beers and non-Harpoon beers and ciders below are currently on tap in the Beer Hall. This lineup is subject to change and changes might not always be reflected immediately!

Chestnut Brown (6.2%): A cherry flavored ale with hints of chocolate, but not overly sweet.

UFO IPA (5%): An easy drinking IPA with strawberry, raspberry, and passionfruit.

Citrus Radler (4.7%): A citrus radler.

Black Ale Project (5.2%): We have joined forces again this year with breweries across the country and the Black Ale Project, a craft beer initiative to raise money and awareness on behalf of U.S war veterans. This year, we’ve brewed a hoppy black ale, brewed with simcoe hops. $1/pint sold will be donated to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).

Clown Shoes – Hammer of the Holy 2019 (11%): Undead Party Crasher American Imperial Stout aged in 100% premium rum barrels, resulting in Hammer of the Holy. Sweet and subtle rum notes mix with the full flavors of dark and smoked malts.

Clown Shoes – Lil’ Crispy (4.8%): A Crisp Ale with subtle malt sweetness and smooth overall flavor.

City Roots – Original Dry Cider (4.8%): We’d go on and on about how we make this cider but the process is pretty simple… take fresh-pressed apple juice, ferment it, and filter it… that’s about it– no additives, sweeteners, or preservatives… just crisp, delicious, all-purpose cider.

City Roots – Pumpkin Cider (4.8%): While apple season is the real draw of fall, pumpkin season is close behind. City Roots Pumpkin Cider combines the best of both with some subtle seasonal spice. Filtered bright and crisp, it’s everything we love about Autumn in a can or keg.

City Roots – Rose Cider (4.8%): A healthy dose of hibiscus flowers gives this off-dry cider a tropical, floral vibe and an extra touch of tartness. Bubbly, bright, vibrantly pink, and delightfully refreshing.

Beers to Go

Find a new favorite and take it home in a Harpoon Growler or Crowler! The Harpoon Growler is a 64-ounce collectible bottle that we fill to order using an Austrian-manufactured growler filler. This highly specialized machine provides the highest quality filling process available. We also sell 32-ounce Harpoon Crowlers. Our crowler machine provides brewery-fresh beer straight off the taps, canned and sealed before your eyes to take home and enjoy!
