Harpoon Flannel Friday

harpoon-flannel-fridayThere are subtle but unmistakable signs that announce the arrival of fall. There’s that first crisp afternoon, the sun is bright but there’s a slight chill in the air. And then there are the first few leaves that start to turn on the trees. Then, possibly the most telling, there’s the first day here at the brewery when almost everyone shows up in flannel. For a beer that tastes so good (and looks so good), it was a no-brainer to add this in to the Harpoon 30-Pack, celebrating 30 years of great times with beer.

From the Brewer – “This Hoppy Amber Ale is our tribute to the quintessential season of change. A bright hop aroma from late hop additions plays with its strong malt backbone. Amber hued, medium bodied, with hints of citrus and pine, this ale is made for the crisp days (and nights) of fall.

Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 35

Brooklyn Oktoberfest

Brooklyn-OktoberfestFrom the Brewer – “When Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria wanted to celebrate his wedding engagement in 1810, he did what any good Bavarian prince would – he threw a beer festival. Both the festival and the special beer served there became known as Oktoberfest. Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, full-bodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness.

Food Pairings: Brooklyn Oktoberfest is especially great with sausages, chicken, steaks, pork chops, cold cuts, burgers and roasted meats. With cheeses, try Swiss, Gruyere or Stilton.

Hops: Hallertauer Perle, Hallertauer Mittelfrueh
Malts: Bavarian Heirloom Munich and Pilsner Malts (malted specially for us in Bamberg)

Jack-O Traveler Pumpkin Shandy

jack-o-traveler-pumpkin-shandyThe Story Behind Jack

Driven by an obsessive love of high jinks, the Jack-O Traveler spent his days cooking up mischief for everyone who crossed his path. One of his favorite pranks involved tricking unsuspecting bar patrons into buying him beers and then skipping out just when it was his turn to buy a round.

So clever was Jack, he even scammed the devil himself into granting him a reprieve from hell. Unfortunately for our Traveler, when his shenanigans finally caught up with him and he died, the man upstairs wanted nothing to do with Jack either.

It’s said that after Jack was barred from heaven, the devil gave him a burning coal, which he promptly put into a carved pumpkin to light his way. Legend has it that he wanders the earth to this day, searching for innocent bystanders to hoodwink into buying him his favorite beer, a pumpkin Shandy.

From the Brewer – “Jack-O Traveler Pumpkin Shandy is an alluring wheat beer illuminated by the tastes of fall. He strikes a perfect balance between bright refreshment and seasonal spice. Jack is brewed with fresh pumpkin, for a delicious dark-hued, Shandy-inspired beer.”
