Stopped into Harpoon's while visiting Boston and the Boston Marathon this year. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. Loved having Jacob as our server - he had the perfect beer choice for each of us. The pretzels are to die for!!! Thanks Harpoon and Jacob for making our visit Boston the best!

Came to Harpoon to take the brewery tour. Very informative and fun tour...with a nice amount of sampling done before it ended. The beer "hall" was an experience as well - sitting on long tables & benches with other people. You must try the pretzels (made with their beer) - we had salted with dipping sauces (bacon ranch was not... More

Harpoon Boston has a huge beer hall and bar! The wait at the bar can be lengthy as it is where everyone heads. There is a small service bar in the back that you can get served a lot quicker! The pretzels look amazing. You can make reservations or get in line. There is limited free parking. Add it to... More

I am a brewery master. Every city, every brewery is my goal. I loved Harpoon because it is a such a cool hang-out spot. Long communal-style tables, plenty of bar space, and great beer! Lots of different varieties on tap, plus sampler options. Great place just to chill and enjoy and try good local beer. Limited good- but they do... More

What a great afternoon! We live Ed the beer hall and brewery tour! Great friendly staff and lots of great beer on the tour. A unique activity if you are in Boston, recommend a cab as it is a good walk from public transportation.

We decided on Harpoon because it is popular and it is only $5 for the tour! We learned a lot on the tour and at the end, we had... More
