Every year the province of Nova Scotia presents the city of Boston with its official Christmas Tree. This tree is a "thank you" to the people of Boston for its quick aid after the devestating Halifax Explosion on December 6th, 1917.
As a tribute to this tradition and the deep bond between the two regions, we brewed a barrel-aged stout with a nod to an iconic Cape Breton cookie recipe, the Fat Archie. With a hint of spice, smooth vanilla notes and a distinct whiskey character from extensive aging in Glenora Single Malt Whiskey barrels from the Western side of Cape Breton Island, it's layered and complex in structure, and utterly flawless in execution. Cheers to Harpoon and all our friends to the South!
