In this episode we venture north to Harpoon Brewery to check out the Harpoon Championships of New England BBQ competition.  We enjoyed some great barbecue, great beer and live music all outside on a beautiful Vermont summer day. This family friendly event offered all of Harpoons standard beers and all of their craft brew soda’s (unfortunately they hid the Leviathan brews for the day).   We were hoping to taste some of the BBQ delights from the infamous “I Smell Smoke” team, however it seems they were completely sold out in the first hour of the event. Perhaps next year!

Overall this was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, my only wish was that I could have had a sample of two of the Leviathan Series.  I was looking forward to taking home a growler of the newly released Big Bohemian Pilsner, but they were not offering it on draft.  I guess we will have to give a call to Scott Shirley, head brewer at Harpoon Windsor, and give him a piece of our mind!  Just kidding Scott…

I guess we will just have to order ourselves a case for our Putney Road Pub.  So if you are in the Brattleboro area we hope that you will come join us for a pint!
