In the bustling city of Boston, Harpoon Brewery is famous for its innovative craft beers and community-focused initiatives. As an example: Imagine enjoying a draft Harpoon IPA after besting your friends in a race down Harpoon’s Slopeside synthetic ice slide. That’s the kind of (um) coolness that Harpoon brings to the beer entertainment scene. Combining its love for beer with the excitement of winter sports, Harpoon Brewery’s Slopeside will be open from now till February 29. Watch the video above to get the whole vibe.
