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.
