I take everyone who comes visit Boston to Harpoon. They have a tour inside the factory for $5 (2018) that includes beer tasting. The pretzels are delicious and the place looks amazing.

The tour is informative and fun. They also give you a little time to sample as many of their beers as you want, which is a definite plus, especially as the tour is not expensive to begin with.

Very interesting if you like beer and how it is made. You can take tour of facility ($5) that includes 10-20 minute opportunity to taste their different beers. Do not miss the pretzels available in the beer hall - outstanding.

This is your honest, no fru fru Brewery. From other pictures you can see the interior is rustic with long tables and benches. And like other breweries, they offer tours which, if you've never been on one, explains the process. We've been here twice recently...More

There are some yummy beer pretzels and other great food to nibble on while you enjoy HB home brewed root beer. I took my 15 year old son and he seemed to enjoy the food, drink and break in the day.
