  • We love to visit breweries and went here for the tour. We arrived at 3 knowing they didn't close until 7. No tours available-all sold out. Went in and had a couple of flights. It is loud, big, so a gr...  more »
  • Great atmosphere with a huge beer hall! I guess we lucked out because we did not have to wait. My only complaint is that we cannot choose our own flights. They are predesigned.  more »
  • I have visited the brewery, but did not make the tours last time. This time we planned ahead and arrived an hour before they opened on Saturday. We lined up outside the brewery and were the first in l...  more »

  • Did the brewery tour on a Sunday, and the two guides, Matt and Caroline, were absolutely fabulous. So knowledgeable, energetic, and entertaining. Then came the best part- the tasting room! All. The. Beers. Were perfection. I decided to taste even the ones that I normally wouldn’t like. I didn’t meet a beer that I didn’t like. This place has honestly opened up a whole new world of beers for me. It was like they had perfected all the beers that I already loved, and perfected the beers that I wanted to love, but never quite could. My best description of this particular brewing company is that it all tastes so fresh and pure with just the individual flavorings of the beer standing out. I can’t exactly quote word for word from one of the Delta Sky magazines, but they were interviewing a famous chef, and he described that when he makes a dish, all of the flavors have to stand out individually and complement each other. That is exactly what this beer does. If you love beer, you need to visit. Harpoon Brewery is the Mecca of beers.
  • Tickets to the tour are first come first serve, which is fine. But if I call to ask if there are tickets available and there are, but the line of people waiting to get in to buy them is significantly longer than the amount of tickets left, tell me that while I'm on the phone. If you don't have a ticket for a tour before 3 pm, don't waste the time and T fare trying to get there before 6.
  • I love beer and I always make it a point to go to a beer tour wherever I go. Harpoon gave one of the most informative beer tours I've been on. Also comes with unlimited tastings of their beer on tap so that's a big plus haha. Staff were really friendly and outgoing, next time I'll be back to stay longer and drink more!
  • I only give this three stars because of the beer, which is just alright to me personally. Because beer should be the main reason for going, I deduct 2 stars. I'll drink a harpoon and be satisfied but it's not my favorite either. That being said, I still recommend coming here (especially if you love their beer) because it has a cool, social vibe in the beer hall. And probably the best part about it are their pretzels. They are AMAZING. They make them from their beer mash and they are big and soft. They come in different styles like cinnamon and parmesan and come with various dipping sauces. Great place to go with friends.
  • Tour was informative and fun. Not being from Boston I wanted to try a local brewery with great beer and that is what I got! The pretzels are really good too.
