This brewery was nothing I'd heard of before, but a friend in the area said I needed to go there. Had a snowy day that shut down most everything else - clearly Bostonians in general were feeling the same. Do yourself a favor - get their Barleywine and a house-made pretzel - DO IT! Anythign in their UFO lineup is... More

We've been here so many times and are finally reviewing! Great beers on tap and the pretzels are super tasty. The tour is always fun as the guides make it a great time. Whenever we are in Boston we always stop by for a pint or two and a pretzel....or two. The staff are always helpful if you ever have... More

Harpoon Brewery and Beer Hall is a great place to spend an afternoon or an evening enjoying some drinks and snacks with friends. The atmosphere is open and fun, through a large glass wall you can see the moving parts of the brewery. The rest of the room is light wood with a long bar and open table seating. They... More

Terrific time at the brewery. The woman who did the tour was awesome and the rest of the staff was great. Pretzels were delicious along with the beer.

The beer and pretzels are great. You can also avoid driving. Get to South Station and then take the SL2, silver line bus. There is a stop directly outside the brewery!

Another favorite spot while in town. Great beers, great service, all in a very relaxed atmosphere. Too bad we can't get these beers back home.

We made a stop at Harpoon on our way to the airport before flying home. It worked out great because the brewery is literally 5-10 minutes away from the airport, so if you find yourself with some extra time before a flight this is a great option. Before taking our tour we had a few beers in the beer hall.... More

I went to Harpoon Brewery with a group of girlfriends in mid-November 2016. The wait was so long for the brewery tour, we decided to do our own tasting in the beer hall. There were tons of beer options from pilsners to wheats to IPAs. They also had trays with a couple different beers to do your own tasting. They... More

The tour is not worth the time. The man who explained how beer is made talked too quickly and the information provided was sub par. It is worth the $5 only because of the 15 minutes of unlimited 2oz samples. I'd suggest stopping by the beer hall and bypassing the tour.

We had a great time at the Harpoon Brewery. The staff was awesome! Very friendly, very accommodating and really enjoy their job. The tour was interesting, the tasting room a lot of fun and the beer hall a blast! The beers were good and the pretzels delicious.
