Beer Factoid: June 19

It’s Inky Beer’s ONE YEAR anniversary! We hope to have many more with all of you. As you know, Dr. B and I love beer and cycling, so this factoid is quite fitting!

On this day in 1986, Harpoon Brewery was born!  Known best for its IPA, Harpoon Brewery is one of the top ten largest craft breweries in the U.S. based on sales (8th or 9th largest based on your resource).

The brewery organizes several events each year; however, my favorite hands down is the “Brewery to Brewery Ride” which consists of completing the 148 mile trek from the brewery in Boston, MA to the brewery in Windsor, VT in under 11 hours.
