Good news, people: Harpoon is turning its excellent rye IPA from last year into a year-round offering.
Harpoon released Rich & Dan's Rye IPA last spring as a one-time thing, part of its 100 Barrel Series. But the brewery knew immediately that it had something extra special on its hands. (As did your humble beer critic; here's my review from last June.) Now you can get Rich & Dan's whenever the heck you want it.
Rich & Dan's Rye IPA should be showing up now in local stores as well as on draft. Six-packs will be priced in line with Harpoon's other beers, about $9 or $10.
Speaking of Harpoon, Cambridge Common's next beer dinner focus on Harpoon beer. The dinner, on April 24 at 6:30, will feature Harpoon Salamander (a new Belgian India brown ale), Bohemian Pilsner, UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, Leviathan Imperial IPA, and -- wouldn't you know it -- Rich & Dan's Rye IPA. Harpoon Cider will even be served, with a homemade apple strudel. The full menu is here. Tickets are $49 and can be purchased here.
