Frequently Asked Questions about Visiting our Boston Brewery
Any questions you have about visiting us at the brewery are probably answered below. If not, feel free to give us a call at 617-456-2322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I heard Tastings will be discontinued. Is that true?
A: Yes, on 4/4 we said farewell to Harpoon Tastings and the end of an era. After more than two decades of weekday Tastings, we transitioned to guided tours of the brewery (which include a Tasting!!) seven days a week. The new catwalk tour path gives tour goers an up-close view of the brewery. You are able to see, smell, hear, and – yes, taste! – everything going on at the Harpoon Brewery. See Brewery Tours for more information.
Q: Can I purchase a ticket for a tour in advance?
A: Tickets for Tours are available only on the day of the Tour. We begin selling Tour tickets when we open at 11:00am. On busy weekends, it is advisable to purchase Tour tickets early to ensure a spot on a tour that day… we have limited capacity and tickets sell out fast!
A: We highly recommend taking Boston's public transit system (the "T"). We are at the Harbor Street stop on the Silver line. From South Station, hop on the SL2 bus and ask to be dropped off at Harbor Street. Our brewery is directly across the street. Directions and parking info
A: Visitors to the brewery will find parking options to be metered parking on Northern Avenue and a Pay Parking Garage across the street from the brewery (also on Northern Avenue). Taking the Silver Line to the Brewery is HIGHLY recommended.
