BREWERY EXPANSION IN BOSTON
If you’ve visited our Boston Brewery in the last 9 months, you’ve probably seen a lot of construction taking place in what used to be our parking lot (i.e. the area formerly known as the location of Harpoon Octoberfest, Harpoon St. Patrick’s Festival, Harpoon Summer Session…etc.). In November 4 very LARGE conditioning tanks arrived and were put into place and an equally huge waste water tank was installed. These new tanks, along with the new infrastructure in place for additional tanks to be installed as needed, will significantly increase the capacity of our Boston brewery.
Here are some facts about our new tanks…
- Number of tanks installed: 5 total, four fermenters and one waste water storage tank
- Height: The tanks hover 35’ into the air.
- Capacity: Each fermenter will hold 1,000 kegs of beer
- Manufacturer: They were produced by a very well respected European brewing tank manufacturer called Ziemanns, in the beautiful river city of Ludwigsburg, Germany (near Stuttgart)
- Used for: BEER!! Fermenting gallons upon gallons of glorious, freshly-brewed Harpoon beer!

HARPOON WEATHER REPORT – CALLING FOR A WINTRY MIX
No, I didn’t get my meteorology degree (though that would be sweet), I am simply excited about sitting down with my pals this weekend and cracking open a case of the Harpoon Wintry Mix. It’s got Harpoon IPA, UFO White, Harpoon Munich Dark, Harpoon Winter Warmer, and Harpoon Belgian Pale Ale, and the limited edition Harpoon Chocolate Stout. There is a treat for everyone, but most especially for me – I get to see the joy on my friends’ faces when they open the box. Is it wrong to love giving so much? Go out and grab a Harpoon Wintry Mix for the weekend. It’s a bundle of craft beer joy.
