Not that easy to reach without a car, somehow weíve managed by using Silver Line bus which drives through some sort of tunnels (looked like subway tunnels, but without rails). There is a nice merch shop just beyond the entrance. Brewery bar is pretty large and with good selection of their brews. Considering itís a brewery bar prices are a bit higher than expected. On the other hand brewery tour cost us only 5$ and was very good and informative. It includes a visit to the tap room where you can try about a dozen of Harpoon brews. If you re going to do the tour itís well worth visiting.

After spending the whole day doing the freedom trail, it was a great reward being at the harpoon brewery. Great beers selection but not that great food wise ( they only serve preztzel). I donít mind, i was there for beer anyway :)

I skipped the brewery tour and instead hit up the beer hall to sample the wares. The punters at the bar next to me and others were declaring the tour as a success and one of the better in the business so it may be worthwhile to do it if itís your thing. As for the beers, I went with the seasonal flight of four and in all honesty I struggled to drink any of them. They tasted under attenuated mess. Damn pricey too! Staff were OK but again it was all just a weird touristy vibe happening here. I was happy/disgruntled to pay for my barely touched flight and move on.

Came here on a Thursday afternoon. Became a bit crowded after 2:30. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Wish they had descriptions of their beers to hand out. Food is pretzels only but with various dips and taste options. They were good. Beer is a bit on a pricy side but decent. Good selection

The tour was full so I sat in the brew house for a few rounds. This is onw of the largest selections I have seen at a brewery anywhere.giant pretzels in a variety of flavors for food. Not enough wait staff which means a long wait for a beer but they were friendly enough. Lots of beer and merchandise for sale. One complaint is for the unreasonable prices, almost $15 for two beers which is ridiculous when drinking at the brewery. Other than that, this is a good place even if a long walk from downtown.

A large, sterile-feeling brewery tasting cavern. You can get pre-set tasting flights, which is OK. But other than that you canít buy anything smaller than a pint, which was weird and annoying. Prices are perhaps a little on the high side for a brewery tasting room. Another beef I have with this place is that their growler filling system sucks. They fill gallon growlers with the screw-on tops; but the cap doesnít screw on tightly and my beer was foaming out for the next few hours. When I cracked the beer less than 24 hours later it was almost entirely flat. Pretty poor from such a large brewery who should really know what to do with a growler. An OK place to go if you want a few one-off Harpoon ticks but other than that thereís not much attraction to this place.
