June 17, 2014 Members' Appreciation Event
A delightful time was had by all who attended the “Members’ Appreciation Event” at the Harpoon Brewery located in the Seaport District of Boston on June 17, 2014. The Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Chapter hosted three hours of free beer and food! The event provided an opportunity for members to get together in a social setting and kick off the start of summer with one another. The event also provided an opportunity for many of those who sat for their CCIFP examination earlier in the day to finally relax!
In addition to the socializing and catching up with one another, many of those who were in attendance also chose to take advantage of the Brewery Tours that were conducted by the Harpoon Brewery staff and learned much more about the history, science and art of brewing at Harpoon. Did you know that the four ingredients to beer are water, malted barley, hops and yeast? Or did you know that Harpoon’s bottling equipment can fill a keg of beer in 18 seconds?
And did you also know that Harpoon Brewery is the 12th largest Craft Brewery in the United States?
The Board of Directors of CFMA of Massachusetts would like to thank those members who were in attendance and we would also like to thank Harpoon Brewery for hosting this event on behalf of our chapter.
