We're Squeezing the Best Out of DC This Weekend

From our friends at UFO Beer...

Squeeze the Most Out of Summer with UFO

Of all the great things about summer, enjoying a refreshing UFO Big Squeeze Shandy and UFO White outside in the sun with friends is one of the best. But the season of beach days and bonfire nights is fleeting, so every moment counts.

This summer, the UFO team from Harpoon Brewery will hit the road for the “Squeeze the Most Out of Summer” Tour. The Tour will visit nine different cities over seven weeks, in search of the best outdoor bars and summer adventures, including kayaking, river floats, boat parties, disc golf, and more. The adventures will be different in each city, but there will always be UFO Big Squeeze Shandy and other UFO beers on hand.

This weekend the Squeeze the Most Out of Summer Tour will be adventuring in Washington, DC. Here’s the weekend schedule:

About the Harpoon Brewery:
The Harpoon Brewery was founded by beer lovers Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti.  In 1986 Harpoon was issued Brewing Permit #001 by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, since it was the first brewery to brew commercially in Boston after a dormant period of about 25 years.  Harpoon’s line of craft beer features its award winning IPA and UFO beers, along with special seasonal selections. In 2000 Harpoon purchased a second brewery in Windsor, VT, making Harpoon the 19th largest craft brewer in the US. Harpoon has since introduced the limited batch 100 Barrel Series and the as well as the all-natural Harpoon Craft Cider made from freshly pressed apples. In August 2014, Harpoon became an employee-owned company. For more information about Harpoon beers and visiting the breweries, visit
