Harpoon Brewery is offering a couple of fun nights to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Like most Bostonians, Harpoon's employees were affected by the tragedy and "felt compelled to do something," in the words of PR director Liz Melby. The brewery decided to host three "Brewed for Boston" nights, with 100 percent of pint and pretzel sales benefiting victims.
The first night took place last week, and I apologize for not letting you know about it (my Celtics job is interfering with my beer job, which isn't likely to draw much sympathy). Information for the next two nights is as follows:
Tuesday, April 30th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Tuesday, May 7th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Again, all of the money from beer and pretzels sold during those times on those nights will go to charity. Harpoon's new beer hall is awesome. You can read about it here. There are no tickets necessary to attend.
Another very cool aspect of the "Brewed for Boston" nights is that Harpoon will be selling 500 raffle tickets for $50 apiece for the chance to help brew a beer at Harpoon. Anyone interested in the brewing arts will want to get in on that.
