Grabbing lunch at a harbor front restaurant and stumbled upon this place. Very cool place - plenty of room, great bartenders and good beer. I would definitely recommend as a casual place to hang out and enjoy a beer (or 5!)

It was an excellent tour of the brewery ($5 per person). The pretzels were great and tasty paired up with their selection of beer.

This is a fun experience. Tour guide was upbeat, entertaining, and knowledgable. The pretzels in the beer hall were delicious, and the beers tasty. On the tour you get essentially unlimited tastes from the beers they are actively brewing (for a nominal $5). Then you can drink more in the beer hall. What is not to like?

If you love beer then do not miss this place. The range of beers on offer is excellent and the beer hall has a really great feel. We didn't do the tour as once you've seen one brewery you've pretty much seen them. Would recommend.

Totally recommend this brewery! My husband make an effort to try out every brewery we can and this definitely gets out stamp of approval. Great beer selection and the pretzels are amazing. Weekends and summers are crazy busy to plan ahead to stand in line.

In all my trips to Boston, I always make a pit-stop at Harpoon. My first time visiting I did the tour of the brewery - informative, great guide, and not too long. I enjoyed it. You also get an unlimited 15 min tasting on the tour - which as you can imagine, is great. Ever since then, I just go... More

The beer is great, events are really fun if you can avoid the lines. There are some outstanding members of the staff but a large number often seem overwhelmed and exhausted. Go on a tour totally worth it!

I am from Minneapolis where lots of breweries have been popping up over the last few years. None of the tours I have done hold a candle to Harpoon Brewery's tour. We got there quite a bit before our tour and decided to grab a pint a some pretzels. They had a ton of different beers on tap. The pretzels... More

We really enjoyed our trip here, we each got beer flights and shared a pretzel (a must try) and it was a great way to spend a couple hours down by harbor.
