“So Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Stopped at Harpoon on our way to Woodstock with two other couples. What a fun group of people, very welcoming and laidback from the moment we walked in. Our tour was awesome, good energy with a good amount of information and a lot of beer :) Fun time had by all!

“Harpoon Brewery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We have been going to the harpoon brewery for many years now. Every year we go its another amazing experience. They have the best beer, and a great show of the making. We go to the harpoon brewery BBQ every year on July 27 and they have one in October to. Its a family experience that you have to share with your family. Its good for all ages, They have ribs, soda, beer tasting, games. Even extreme weight lifting champions. Don't miss out on this experience. Have fun and go to the Harpoon Brewery! They even have a water truck there that has water fountains coming out of it to wet the little kids and dogs.

“Beautiful setting and fantastic pub food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

A GREAT kick-off to start the summer! First of all, I just love Vermont, and this little area in Windsor was beautiful! The Brewery and Restaurant were situated in an area with an outdoor equipment outfitter and a vodka distillery and a high-end natural product purveyor.
My husband took the hour-long tour while the kids and I ate lunch and enjoyed the outdoor patio area. Lovely long tables and bench seating under overlapping deck canopies. Really pretty! The food was good, careful attention was paid to our requests to watch for food allergens. I tried the cider on tap...delicious, and what has become my go-to alcoholic beverage for the summer.
My husband thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour and walked away with lots of useful terminology and technical information, as well as a couple of 6 packs and a tee-shirt from the shop. The kids had room to play an energetic game of one-on-one-on-one soccer outside while he finished the tour and then ate his meal that we had taken to go. It was a great part of a great day that none of us will soon forget!

“Nice Brew Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We really enjoyed Harpoon - they have a great lunch menu and the service was good. The beer is wonderful and you can see them bottling right there if you are interested. Our only disappointment was they are not open in the evening, we had hoped to have dinner there and they were closed, luckily we were able to head back over for lunch the next day. Seating both indoors or out, both areas are really very nice.

“The Beer Was Fine...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

No tours on the day we were there - Just a walk-through to see the bottling area. We were going to take some products with us, but the inattentive staff caused us to change our minds. We had a beer & left. The beer was fine...the staff, not so much.
