PRESS RELEASE / June 21, 2021 (Boston, MA) – Ahead of the Summer Games, two soccer stars looking to make the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team a family affair are teaming up off the pitch for a good cause. Today, international soccer star sisters Kristie and Sam Mewis are launching a special edition beer brewed in collaboration with Boston, MA-based Harpoon Brewery: Mew-S-A Citrus IPA.
Brewed with lime peel, lemon purée, and sea salt, Mew-S-A Citrus IPA is a crushable session IPA packed with citrusy flavor that can be enjoyed as you’re toasting to the Opening Ceremony or gearing up for Game Day. A portion of proceeds from every 4-pack sold will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester – the charity of the Mewis sisters’ choice.
The Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 by beer lovers who wanted more and better beer options. When the Brewery was founded, Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first to brew commercially in Boston after a dormant period of about 25 years. Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award-winning IPA and seasonal beers, along with special limited releases. In 2014, Harpoon became an employee-owned company.
