Great example of a place that got too popular. They can't handle their own success. Good brewery and beer. Good luck getting a table after it's already busy. Wait staff is nearly non-existent. And when they do come around, they're borderline rude. No reason service needs to be good though. They clearly have a ton of customers clamoring to get... More

Bar tenders are unable to support simple lunch rush! No service or eye contact! Terrible, terrible service! Will never return! 30 min without a simple acknowledgment! So sad

Cool spot. It is tucked in the industrial section but don't let it fool you. It was the place to be -hopping with people. Lots of beer selections to choose from. We went with the double IPA and the pale ale. Sampled a couple UFOs (unfiltered beers). And do not leave without ordering a pretzel -homemade yumminess made with their... More

The fact that Harpoon is employee own is the best story to me. The beers are average in IMO. The pretzels were great. That is the only food available. It's worth a stop to have a break from the day for sure.

2nd time visiting and have not been disappointed. $5 tour provides sufficient time to sample some brews. The brew hall after the tour offered all the Harpoon favorites. Don't forget to order the hot pretzels!!!

This was a must visit on our trip to Boston. I ordered the UFO flight and I was so glad I did. All 4 beers were so good. I had to have another of the raspberry. This is a very nice beer hall, lots of room and nice set up. We didn't order the pretzels but I wish we had... More

Okay, I loved the beer tour and all the samples. But, I would drive to Boston 5 hours just to have one more pretzel. They are homemade and made with beer. So good!

We go to Harpoon monthly, partially because we're part of their X-Night group where you get to try new brews monthly and partially because they're there the best brew hall in Boston! The pretzels are always fresh! Highly recommend getting a flight as you'll get the best sampling of what they offer this way. Take the tour, you get to... More
