Harpoon Brewery, Boston
(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
See how one of Boston's favorite beer makers, Harpoon Brewery, makes its suds, and sample some of the final products when your tour finishes. If you're less interested in the brewing process, head straight for the long, wooden tables in the beer hall and order a draught and freshly baked pretzel while you take in views of the city. Tours sell out quickly, but tickets are only available for sale on the day of the tour itself, so arrive early to buy tickets for the tour time of your preference. A visit to Harpoon Brewery represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Boston trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • Great experience. I am not a big beer drinker but still enjoyed the place. Their seasonal flavors are worth the regular detour to the South End.
  • Love the short batch beer choices at the brew hall. Always something new to pick. Terrific annual holiday parties and festivals.
  • I'm not a beer drinker, but enjoyed this place. The tour is $5, and it comes with several tastings. I liked the cider, so it worked out. The pretzels at the main bar are amazing!!
  • Great drinks, the atmosphere is good, and the pretzels are delicious. Only downside is that it can get very crowded, and the wait for a tour can be long.
  • Best brewery in Boston. Harpoon IPA is an all time classic. Many other seasonal and specialty brews are offered in the taproom, some are not available outside of the brewery. If they have the 100 Barrel Series on tap, try it!!
