This was my first brewery tour, and I got spoiled. For $5 you get a tour, a neat little 4oz tasting glass, and free range of the taps for about 15 minutes at the end of your tour. Of course, you have to compete with the rest of your tour group to get to the bar, but we still got about four samples each in that time. I have been a tour guide, so I understand the job and how to tell a good guide from a bad one. Harpoon knows how to staff their brewery. Period. Our two guides were funny, enthusiastic, and friendly, but were also well organized. It's a little bit of a trek if you are focusing on the North End, but well worth it, especially for the little lobster place well within stumbling distance of the brewery. I am now a big fan of Harpoon and am excited to see where the company goes.
