Brewer John Baker Leads “100 Barrel Series” Event
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Brewer John Baker from Harpoon Brewery (creator of the previously released, limited edition “100 Barrel Series – Catamount Maple Wheat”) will discuss and sample Harpoon’s 28th session of the Harpoon 100 Barrel Series.
This series celebrates the year’s hop harvest with Glacier Harvest Wet Hop beer, a pale ale made with fresh Glacier hops. Smoke Daddy’s public tasting event will feature a special beer menu with Harpoon Brewery beers,including Harpoon IPA and Harpoon Leviathan Series, available in addition to the Glacier Harvest sampling.
The Harpoon 100 Barrel Series is a return to our brewing roots. We call it the 100 Barrel Series because that’s exactly what it is— one-of-a-kind limited batch creations fashioned by a Harpoon brewer. The 28th edition (Glacier Harvest Wet Hop) by Harpoon brewer Ray Dobens, has a heroic dose of fresh hops from the day of the harvest.The hop flavor and aroma from this copper-colored ale comes from a generous late addition of freshly harvested “wet” hops.
The Harpoon Leviathan Series surfaced at Harpoon in the summer of 2008. The series is an exploration in brewing big beers for adventurous palates. Leviathan beers will be brewed in 120-barrel batches.
Tuesdays, 11:30am-11:00pm. Free, live music at 9:00pm.
