Drinking Harpoon and eating BBQ to help those in need? Yes, please.

The New England Barbecue Society is teaming up with Harpoon Brewery for a fundraiser to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. The fourth annual "Harpoon Helps Grateful Harvest Beer-B-Q" will be held on Sunday (Nov. 14) at the Harpoon Brewery. BBQ masters camp out in front of the brewery and cook more than 500 pounds of turkey and all the trimmings. Items on the dinner menu include Harpoon Cider butternut squash bisque, Harpoon Ale brined turkey, southern cornbread, and apple bread pudding.

The Goodtime String Band will provide the bluegrass and fiddle music.

Tickets are $55 and must be purchased in advance. Admission includes all the turkey and trimmings you can eat, three Harpoon beers, and a commemorative Beer-B-Q beer mug. Plus, New England Barbecue Society chefs will be on hand with recipe tips for spicing up your own Thanksgiving dinner.
