Harpoon brewery and products were created by Dan Kenary and Rich Doyle with the plan in mind to make a more quality American beer. The two men teamed up with a brewer and opened their own brewery in Boston in 1986. Harpoon Cider is a pure and natural cider and was made for the same reason that Harpoon started brewing. Harpoon Brewery loved the idea of cider but could not find one that they really liked drinking. The end result is a unique craft cider with no artificial colors, flavors, or any preservatives, this beer contains just local apples and their house yeast. It’s great for cooking and to drink while cooking too.
