PRESS RELEASE / October 15, 2020 (Boston, MA) – Whether you can believe it or not, we have reached the dogdays of 2020 when all the basics pull out their cable-knit sweaters and flannels for the short, perfect period of time that is fall. While the seasons may be slipping away faster than we can sip our Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, Mass. Bay Brewing Company is helping to ground everyone in the here-and-now with their fall seasonal beer and cider offerings.
Mass. Bay Brewing Company, the brewers of Harpoon, UFO Beer, and City Roots Cider, have released all your fall favorites, helping you get cozy for the chilly weather to come with brews filled with extra spices to keep us warm, and flavors like pumpkin to get us in the spirit of the season. Fall favorites available now include:
- Flannel Friday: For those that love fall but aren’t the biggest fan of pumpkin flavoring, this one’s for you. Packed with warm spices and subtle notes of caramel, this beer is Harpoon Brewery’s tribute to fall in New England. Coming in at 5.7% ABV, Flannel Friday pairs well with bright, crisp days and fall foliage watching while wearing your favorite flannel.
- Harpoon Dunkin’ Pumpkin: Inspired by everyone’s favorite fall pumpkin latte, Harpoon teamed up with Dunkin’ to create this “Spiced Latte Ale” – brewed with real pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and a splash of coffee. Light in color, easy-drinking, and coming in at 5.2% ABV, it’s a perfect blend of all the autumn flavors we love, with just a touch of espresso-like roast!
- City Roots Pumpkin: Apple season is a big draw to fall, and when married with pumpkin flavoring – you have a seasonal masterpiece. City Roots Pumpkin Cider combines the best parts of both flavors with some subtle seasonal spice snuck in with cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. Filtered bright and crisp at 5.0% ABV, it’s everything we love about fall in a glass, can, or keg.
- UFO Pumpkin: Real pumpkin, seasonal spices, and fresh-from-the-patch flavor embodies UFO Pumpkin. At 5.9% ABV, this is the beginner’s foray into creative craft beer creations just in time for fall.
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 Bostonafter a dormant period of about 25 years. Since then, it has expanded to a second brewery in Windsor, VT. 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.
UFO has come to represent—a portfolio of beers that’s a little bit different, a little more refreshing and flavorful, and most importantly, a product that everyone can enjoy. We’re so passionate about making a beer by the people for the people that we became employee owned in 2014 (read: we own the place!). Everyone here has ownership over our products which is why we test new flavors daily so that we can deliver you a refreshing adventure in every can, bottle and glass that’s poured. We’ve come a long way since UFO first touched down, and we look forward to sharing new explorations with you.
City Roots is the creation of a small group of cider-loving employee-owners at Boston’s Harpoon Brewery. Born from the belief that apples deserve just as much love as malt and hops, we stand by the fact that cider is best when fresh and natural.
