PRESS RELEASE / December 15, 2021 (Boston, MA) – Harpoon Brewery is kicking off 2022 throwback-style as they invite beer lovers and nostalgia fans alike to join them for their first-ever New Year’s Day brunch: Spoons, Toons, N’ Brews. Taking place on Saturday, Jan. 1 from 11AM-2PM, Harpoon will be offering guests an afternoon of old-school cartoons & video games, a make-your-own cereal bar (complete with their very own stout milk), limited edition Fruity Pebbles pretzels, and mimosas made with the brewery’s League Family beers.
Following the end of this rad afternoon, each guest will be able to take home Harpoon’s new Retro Rye IPA – a dry-hopped brew that blends modern and cryo hops with an ABV of 6.5% – for an exclusive first taste before it officially comes to the Beer Hall in January.
Tickets to the New Year’s Day event are available for purchase online.
The Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 by beer-loving friends who wanted to bring variety and community back to the American beer scene— particularly their home region of New England. At the time, 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 25 years. Since then, it has expanded to a second brewery in Windsor, VT, and in 2014, became employee-owned. Harpoon’s portfolio of craft beer is led by Harpoon IPA, New England’s Original IPA, and features their League Family of active lifestyle beers as well as an array of seasonal and limited releases, including countless collaborations with other local brands.
