The Harpoon Brewery was founded by beers lovers, Rich
Doyle and Dan Kenary. In 1986 Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first brewery to brew
commercially in the state after a dormant period of about 25 years.
HarpoonÛªs line of craft beer features its award-winning IPA and UFO Hefeweizen
beers, along with four special seasonal selections. In 2000 Harpoon purchased a
second brewery in Windsor, VT, making Harpoon the 11th largest craft
brewer in the US. Harpoon has since introduced two lines of limited
edition beers, the 100 Barrel Series and the Leviathan Series, as well as the
all-natural Harpoon Cider made from freshly pressed, local apples. For
