•Boston, Massachusetts’ Harpoon Brewery is launching UFO Gingerland, a gingerbread-inspired offering within its UFO series of unfiltered beer. Brewed with cinnamon, clove and ginger, the spiced wheat beer (5.2% abv) features malty sweetness from cinnamon spice and Munich malts and a crisp ginger finish, the company says. It is available this winter in six- and 12-packs of bottles, cans and on draft. Harpoon also offers the limited-batch 100 Barrel Series and Harpoon Craft Cider. This past August, the company became employee-owned.
