Harpoon Brewing celebrates the coming of colder weather with a barleywine. Until now, Bronze Age was just an employee tap room release.
The barleywine boasts flavors of dark fruit, pepper, vanilla, and carmel. Suitable for fresh drinking or keeping in your cellar for a while. Look for this in 22oz bottles.
Hops: Tettnang, Chinook
Availability: 22oz bombers
Harpoon Brewery’s Imperial Pumpkin has hit the shelves. This new offering from Harpoon started as a test batch of a porter with pumpkin puree from UFO Pumpkin added. It turned out to be pretty darn good, warranting a larger release this year.
The base brew is essentially an imperial stout with a pumpkin side, plus molasses, and spices added in for a fall treat. Look for it now until it sells out.
Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Pumpkin, Molasses, Cinnamon, Nutmeg)
Availability: 22oz bombers. Limited Draft.
Last fall our brewers were improvising a new beer in our 10-barrel kettle. We had some fresh pumpkin puree leftover from a recent brew of our UFO Pumpkin, so the brewers threw that in the kettle with a bit of molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some roasted malts. It turned out to be delicious, so we thought we’d share it with everyone. – See more at: http://www.harpoonbrewery.com/beer/1663/Imperial-Pumpkin#sthash.344kkfzD.dpuf

Session #47 in Harpoon’s 100 Barrel Series is in the works. The series allows a Harpoon brewer (or brewers) the chance to experiment and play. Saison Various is the as the name suggests, a little various. Three different saisons were blended together in a fun collaborative effort.
In the spirit of collaboration, Jamie stayed true to the farmhouse tradition of brewing without spices while Ryan balanced East Kent Golding hops with coriander and white peppercorn. Ethan’s American hops and a Trappist yeast strain complemented Rich’s citrusy hop profile, and the combined result is Saison Various: a refreshing blend of saisons, brewing sensibilities, and unique ingredients.
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
