It’s (almost) OOMPAH time! Harpoon’s 21st Annual Octoberfest is NEXT WEEKEND, October 1st and 2nd, so grab your friends, your lederhosen, your friends’ lederhosen, and get ready for the biggest and grandest of all Harpoon celebrations. As always, there will be delicious Harpoon beer and all the bratwurst, sauerkraut, German chocolate cake-eating contests, German oompah music, chicken dancing, and lederhosen your heart desires. What could be better? Come to the party!

This festival wouldn’t be complete without Boston’s best hometown beers. A wide selection of our beers will be on tap, including our refreshing, malty Harpoon Octoberfest. If you haven’t had a chance to try our delicious, all-natural Harpoon Cider, not to worry, we’ll have that on tap as well.
