Harpoon “Octoberfest”

Posted: March 24, 2012 in Marzen

Harpoon is great.  The owners started the brewery in 1986 after touring Europe and wanting to bring some of that to New England.  Their care for making a good product shows.  The Octoberfest is a ver good Marzen style.  Harpoon is the first beer to be brewed commercially in Boston since 1964.  All of the beers I have had from Harpoon has been very, very good.  This one is no different.  The flavor is very classic Marzen, malty with a slight bitter taste.  All the flavors balance, and it is easy to session.  It’s easy to find (at least on the east coast), and not expensive.  When the leaves are starting to change and you want one for the season try the Harpoon you won’t be disapointed.
