It obviously depends on your tour guide, but we had Sam who was INCREDIBLE! She was seriously hysterical and well worth the tiny price of admission. It was fun to find out about beer and even more fun to taste all the beers you wanted...More

We hit the harpoon brewery on our way back to our cruise ship. Very walkable from the dock. Lots to choose from, the beer tasted great and wasn't too pricey. Had a legit beer hall feel to it.

The heat and noise make you enjoy the tour more. You're right in the production area. For this reason it doesn't feel as sterile or as much of a marketing gimmick as some brewery tours would be. Beer is excellent. You get a sale sample...More

easy strolling along the HarborWalk, and there are
bars and restaurants for all ages and budgets. The
Institute of Contemporary Art is located in this area
in a contemporary building with an absolutely stunning

There are some yummy beer pretzels and other great food to nibble on while you enjoy HB home brewed root beer. I took my 15 year old son and he seemed to enjoy the food, drink and break in the day.
