Perfect late Saturday afternoon, so after the jazz fest we wandered into Harpoon. This area of Boston is rather desolate, but once you get into the drinking hall - BAM! - you realize where everyone is. Very popular place, but seating is always opening up....More

Great selections of beers and pretzels with various dipping sauces to try. They offer tours and have a reasonably priced gift shop. Also, the restrooms a very clean and also have a view of the harbor.

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.
