“Came for the Beer; Didn't Disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

After a day of watching a golf tournament at Dartmouth, we decided to treat ourselves to beers at Harpoon, only a 20 minute drive south. It was a lovely fall day and we sat outside in the sun in their large beer garden with two glasses of spectacular beer. Our teenage son was along and got some homemade ice cream from a shop right next door. It was win-win for everyone. Loved it so much we got a Growler to go. Will be back whenever we are in the area.

“a little out of the way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

if you want a tour, go on Fridays (they advertise guided tours on Fridays). Otherwide, you just stand inside the door and read signs on the machinery, you can't walk around. They have a bar & restaurant on site but we didn't try it.

“GREAT BREW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a wonderful brewery that has 20 beers on tap and a fantastic casual menu to accompany them. Local angus beef for the burgers, home mede fries, fish and chips, giant paninis etc. Bar tenders are friendly and on the ball. A must visit. Oh and sit outside by the firepit after you tour the brewery!

“Fascinating tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If you're anywhere near Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH or Woodstock, VT, stop here to take the brewery tour. The guides were fun and informative and you get free small glasses with many beers to taste. We learned a lot and it cost next to nothing.

“Tourist stop and brewery all in one”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The fact that Harpoon Brewery is a brewery probably is the key to its atmosphere and menu items. All American and pretty standard in terms of choices. If you enjoy beer, though, they have many selections.
