Very informative. Fun dialogue. Good beer. Easy to get to with nearby parking. Nice day trip. Enough said.

The four of us came here to try out some of the beers and enjoy a couple of pretzels. We all had a flight, there are 3 different flight options, depending on your taste, etc. Each one of us ordered a pretzel and we were able to sample different dips (each pretzel comes with 2 dips- IPA cheese is yummy!)...

We went with a group of colleagues and had a grand time. It was within walking distance of our hotel on the waterfront. We missed the tour, but still enjoyed the flight of beer that we got right in the hall. We were a little scared when we had to carry our flight back to the table with the "paddle"... More

We got there right at 11 AM because we heard the tours sell out quickly. Good advice because we had to wait to get in to buy tour tickets. We were lucky to get on the noon tour and that was a lot of fun. The tour guides were very good and had a great knowledge of the operation. The... More

We happened to go and get the $5 tour of the Harpoon brewery. It's not a long tour, the guides are young and very knowledgable, and quite passionate about what they do, brew really good beers, and cider. They give you ample time to try out some of their fine brews, and I must admit although a Guinness fan I... More

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and the wait for the tour was over 2 hours so we just went to the beer hall. The beer hall is huge ( over 400 people) and it's kinda a free for all. There is no organization to seating just tons of long tables and it's fend for yourself and find a seat.... More

Fabulous beer, out of this world pretzels/dip and an accommodating staff. Came for the awesome brew tour directly after Sam Adams, more tasting options here and a cool atmosphere. They messed up my pretzel order twice,...the manager came over and sincerely apologized, gave us 2 free pretzels, then comped the bill for my party of 4! What a sweet gesture... More

There were 4 people in our party. We got two different "flights" of beer - UFO light and the dark. Before we came to this brewery, we were already fans of the UFO light beers. However, the beer did not taste the same as the beer in the bottles or even on draft. My husband makes his own beer and... More

Great new beer hall at harpoon! Head on upstairs and enjoy a few beers! Great selection of their craft brews, as well as great pretzels! If you head to Harpoon you must have one or 3 of their pretzels with different sauces all are amazingly good! But the beer is the real draw, lets be honest. Great selection, friendly staff!
