CALDWELL, NJ - Tonight, November 20th, the Cloverleaf is hosting a special fundraiser. All are welcome to stop in and order a Harpoon Winter Warmer, or any Harpoon Winter Draft and support the Hurricane Sandy cause.
Owner Ryan Dorchak explains:
“We already had a "Friends of Harpoon" Night scheduled for tonight. But I was approached by my Harpoon Brewery representative who asked if we would like to change our event into a fundraiser.
He suggested donating a $1 of every Harpoon draft to Harpoon Helps.
Since we have been so fortunate throughout this time, I wanted to increase the donation to $2.50 per draft.
$1 will be going to Harpoon Helps and the other $1.50 will be going to a local donation.
In addition, 100% of the sales from 1 full barrel will go towards the Hurrican Sandy cause."
According to the Harpoon Brewery website,
“Harpoon Helps is the philanthropic arm of the Harpoon Brewery. Past missions have included sorting food at the Greater Boston Food Bank, serving meals at a soup kitchen in Portland, an American Red Cross blood drive, and volunteering at a Harpoon road race to raise money for ALS research.”
Dorchak continued: "We will be pouring 4 Harpoon drafts today - Chocolate Stout, Winter Warmer, Coffee Porter and Leviathan Czernobog Imperial Stout. We sincerely hope that the West Essex Community joins us tonight for this special fundraiser!”
Harpoon Brewery describes their Chocolate Stout as having a “noticeable dark chocolate flavor created from an abundance of darker, more aromatic, chocolate malt along with a touch of chocolate.”
Their Winter Warmer is a seasonal beer which has strong flavors of the holiday spices cinnamon and nutmeg.
El Triunfo Coffee Porter is a limited release brew, part of Harpoon’s 100 Barrel Series. It combines caramel and dark chocolate along with coffee beans.
Harpoon’s Leviathan Czernobog is a Russian Imperial Stout made of a combination of unsweetened chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit, balanced out by English hops.
100% of Harpoon Winter Warmer sales will be donated to the Hurricane Sandy cause.
$2.50 of every Harpoon draft sold will also be donated to the Hurricane Sandy cause.
