Harpoon wanted to do some good when they came up with their new Grateful Harvest. Despite being a fruit beer, the cranberries don't take away from this robust ale. For every six pack of this that the brewery sells, a dollar is donated helping families feed themselves during harsh economic times. And despite the fact that this doesn't offer something as exciting as your imagination might have you believe, doesn't the feeling that you're helping get turkeys on the tables of those less fortunate than us make this beer a little more special? We think so. And yes, this beer goes great with traditional Thanksgiving Day foods. Just make sure you say thanks that you have it.
