For Harpoon Brewery it all started in 1986 with three friends who wanted to make a difference in the craft beer industry. While on a trip to Europe, Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti experienced the beer culture they had been longing for and were determined to bring it back the States.
Less than one year later, the first Harpoon Ale was brewed on the Boston waterfront and production hasn’t slowed down since. Today, Harpoon has over 300 employees and two locations, the original Boston brewery and its latest brewery in Windsor, Vermont.
A lot has changed for the craft beer industry over the past 30 years, but the Harpoon philosophy has remained the same:
- Treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves
- Work like an owner and think like a customer
- Love Beer, Love Life
We love the beer we brew, and we love drinking it together.
Employee Owned and Operated
On August 1st of 2014, Harpoon Brewery joined a minority of employee owned breweries by selling 48% of its stock shares to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). With the Harpoon ESOP, each employee gets an ownership interest in the company without any financial investment on their part. Think of it as an employee benefit plan where you get shares placed in a trust fund that’s in your name.
