New Balance teams up with Harpoon Brewery

Just in time for the Boston Marathon, two Boston-based institutions are teaming up to bring us another running-themed beer.


Just in time for the Boston Marathon, two Boston-based institutions are teaming up to bring us another running-themed beer.

New Balance and Harpoon Brewery are rolling out a limited edition of 1906, a session beer with runners in mind.

“Carb loading looks a lot different when you partner with @Harpoon_Brewery,” New Balance tweeted about the collaboration.

The saison is light in color and slightly hazy and features pale, wheat, Munich, and Bonlander malts with Amarillo hops and ground orange peel. It clocks in at 4.9% ABV.

The collaboration beer can be found at Harpoon Beer Hall, and $1 from each pint goes to support Stepping Strong, an organization started by a family affected by the marathon bombing to fund research, innovation and training for limb reconstruction and traumatic injury care.

Previously, Samuel Adams has brewed up a 26.2-themed beer and other races have also partnered with breweries to produce their own specialty beer.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
