Harpoon Brewery in Windsor Vermont.

Stopped here on the way back from Montreal to NYC for a lunch and a quick beer. I was driving so couldn’t have too much but did get a feel for it all.

Area in the back is the brewery in all of its glory, tours on specific days for $5 which includes a free glass. Didn’t have time so instead we went for food in the front taproom part. The décor is casual, large expansive bar with a bunch of small tables, also an outdoor patio area for the outdoor crowd. Too hot for that so we stayed inside and got some menus. There is also a commercial section that includes six packs, clothing, mugs and other swag. Swag seemed a little overpriced but whatever. They proudly had their rare beers on display here and that was really cool.

I love that Harpoon makes its own cider, my wife has a Celiac intolerance and can’t have beer. So the opportunity for her to have a craft pint with me was awesome. Good for them. I opted for the limited release Rye IPA beer. This beer is excellent and we toasted to good drinking.

We ordered food, splitting chicken wings for an appetizer. I got the Black Bean Burger and she got the Cobb Salad. All food was fresh and excellent. Our server was friendly and very helpful, couldn’t have asked for more.

Overall, a great time, I left with some Leviathan Bock and full from a good meal. I highly recommend this place as a stop. Well worth your time.

I remember when this wasn't much more than a beer stand, and now its like a ski lodge restaurant. There's a bunch of other stuff at this pulloff as well to explore (more food, and shops) now. But the beer is what brings us back, not many Harpoon beers that I've disliked, and the food is good as well.

Make a point to stop here, the beer we all know.
That said there are brewery only beers, like the original Harpoon Ale that reside here.
The food is pretty good, the specials are worth watching, I had an incredible grilled tuna salad
a few weeks ago.
The staff is spot on and the price points are all really good.
The Windsor site is the former Catamount production facility, so some homage is due.
Cheers

Doesn't get much better than this. Post success, high end big buildings. Food was great. You know the beer. Ice cream, VT product store. Great atmosphere, had a great time. Will be back.

Nearest brewery to me. I like the fact that I can drop in every couple if weeks and get something new that is only made at the brewery and put on tap there. There is always a cask conditioned selection. You can get 1/2 pints to stretch your beer out. Food is pretty darn good. I suggest the Rachel or the pulled pork nachos for food.
