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.

Perfectly placed between exits on the way up to a ski trip. Great outside veranda and porch area, for playing cornhole or frisbee or just to run out and stretch your legs. Hit the spot for us as it was very family friendly.

THey offered toured for a few bucks and you get a stamped card. If you get a 2nd tour at their Boston location, you get an IPA HArpoon glass. Pretty diverse selection of bottles and at least a half dozen on tap.

After several attempts I finally got to visit this brewery in June. Not the easiest place to find. You have to really trust the signs and keep your eyes open. Got the evil eye from the staff out front on break playing cards. (Must have been the Long Trail t-shirt I was wearing.) Inside I approached the cashier and asked to take the brewery tour. "Go through those doors." was the only instructions my wife and I received. Through the doors we entered a fenced off viewing area about 8 x 20 feet with a few informative signs. We then went in for a tasting and that's when we felt much more welcome. The interior was decorated like a Vermont lodge and looked like a good place to spend a snowy afternoon. The samples were of a good size and covered a wide range of their beers. My wife, who is not a great fan of beer but loves me, even found some she liked. The bar staff was friendly and were generous with samples of their Levianthan Series. I wish I could have taken Quad home in a growler. There was a large selection of beer related items available for purchase. Not much of a brewery tour but worth a visit if you are a fan of Harpoon.

I have been twice as a place to stop and grab a bite to eat while traveling. Food is alright but selection of Harpoon beers on tap and the atmosphere of the place mak it a place I will stop in again. I have yet to do the brewery tour but have enjoyed sampling stuff and getting growler fills. Each time the samples heavily influenced my growler fill. Harpoon and UFO aren't always in my fridge but worth a visit to grab a bite, sample a few different brews and get a growler fill.

Right off I-91, not hard to find but certainly would not see it if you didn't know about it.

The place is nice inside, not really special but a good looking place to sit and relax. Being that it was a nice day we sat outside and enjoyed their patio which overlooks booth a nice field and the parking lot/outdoor store.

Service was prompt and good, again nothing special but nothing to complain about. Their beer selection was good, had a couple special beers on tap which is always nice.

Food was your standard pub fare, good wings, burger was tasty. Again, not exceptional, but would definitely go back when headed up that way again...but mostly for the beer.
