It all started with three friends who shared a love of beer. College classmates Rich Doyle and Dan Kenary were passionate about beer, but weren't able find what they were looking for at their local pubs. While traveling in Europe after college, they drank many diverse, fresh, local beers and experienced firsthand the wonderful beer culture that existed just across the pond.
When they returned to Boston they decided that if they couldn't buy the beer they wanted then they would have to brew it themselves - or start a brewery and hire someone who could brew it. So that's what they did. Rich and Dan teamed up with George Ligetti, hired a brewer, and in 1986 the Harpoon Brewery was incorporated.
Harpoon was granted Brewing Permit #001 in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts because it was the first brewery to commercially brew and bottle beer in Boston in more than 25 years.
And that, friends, was the beginning of Harpoon...
