Harpoon Brewery

Harpoon Brewery is an employee-owned craft brewery, with locations in Boston, Massachusetts, and in Windsor, Vermont.

Founded in 1986, the brewery was the first company to obtain a permit to produce and sell alcohol in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in more than 25 years. In 2000, it purchased the former Catamount Brewery plant in Windsor, and as of 2013, Harpoon was the twelfth-largest craft brewery and 19th-largest overall brewery in the United States.

The brewery is best known for its Harpoon India Pale Ale. It brews multiple other year-round beers including the award-winning Dark, UFO Hefeweizen, UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, UFO White, and Boston Irish Stout. It also brews several house beers at Boston bars, including “Sevens Ale” for The Seven’s Ale House in Beacon Hill.

Harpoon has seasonal beers, including an Octoberfest Märzen style Ale and Harpoon Camp Wannamango Another line of beers from Harpoon is its “100 Barrel Series”, which consists of a number of one of a kind batches.

Locally, Harpoon has become famous for their annual festivals that they hold at the brewery. Their St. Patrick’s Day, Harpoonfest and Octoberfest festivals have become a staple in the Boston party scene. These events include music, food, and beer. Harpoon also organizes an annual 5-mile run to benefit The Angel Fund and the Harpoon Point to Point to benefit the Vermont Food Bank.

Harpoon used to produce several non-alcoholic sodas, including root beer, orange and cream, and cream soda, but ceased production in 2009. However, Harpoon root beer is currently available at both of their breweries.

In 2017 Harpoon began collaborating with Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Company to package several varieties of Great Lakes Beer in cans.

In 2018 Harpoon teamed with Dunkin’ Donuts to release Dunkin’ Coffee Porter.

The Harpoon Brewery is also well known for their various pretzels made on site, which are made from leftover yeast of beer brewing.
