On the way in we walked past a roaring fire in a nice little outdoor fire pit set up with bunch of folks enjoying a beer around the fire. There was some sledding action off to the right. Looked like a few families enjoying the beautiful day in a beautiful setting. Into the building, there is a wall dedicated to new and old empties. Some whalez bro, some classics and some I'd never even heard of! Next you come upon the fully stocked retail section. You can buy what looks like the full line of harpoon hard goods, from glassware to shirts, hats, umbrellas etc. You can also buy singles, bombers, 4 packs, 6 packs, 12 packs and 24 packs of fresh, tasty Harpoon beers! You can also get growlers filled with whatever is on tap. The brewery is off to the right and some of it can be seen through retail shop. The brewery tour is pretty extensive with a history of harpoon, standard passing around of beer ingredients and then a tour of the inner workings. It's a good sized operation but they still leave room for smaller, experimental batches some of which get put on tap at the restaurant. Tour is done and we go eat. We got a great seat by the fireplace, had some awesome wings for an app and all of our meals were great. Not a huge menu but there is something for everyone and everything we got was delicious. There is a relaxed vibe in the restaurant, everything is clean, bright and in excellent condition qnd every member of the seemingly endless staff was very nice. Even my two 8 year old boys enjoyed our time there. There's so much more than the brewery tour here. It truly is a family destination and we'll definitely go back in the summer as it seemed like there was a bunch of stuff to do outside and in the area. An overall awesome experience for the entire family!

I enjoyed my tour of the facility and had a great lunch in the restaurant / taproom. The food is much better than the Boston location.

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.
