Harpoon-Brooklyn Super Bowl bet: Winner buys

February 1st, 2008 | Posted by Real Beer

Harpoon Brewery and Brooklyn Brewery have a little something riding on the outcome of Sunday’s Super Bowl game.

With the New England Patriots would be playing the New York Giants, Harpoon president Dan Kenary dialed up his friend Steve Hindy, president of Brooklyn Brewery, and arranged a wager. The bet: if the Patriots win the Super Bowl, Brooklyn will pour a keg of Harpoon IPA in their tap room and if the Giants win, a keg of Brooklyn Lager will be tapped in Harpoon’s Boston tap room.

“We know that the oddsmakers are giving the Patriots a 12-point advantage, but we have a lot of faith in our Giants and Eli Manning,” Hindy said in a press release. “The Giants closed strong this season while the Pats looked a bit tired in the last few games, so we accepted an even bet with Dan and Harpoon.”

On Monday, the brewery that has won the wager will ship a keg of their flagship beer to the losing brewery for tapping on their draft system.
