Harpoon Beer Hall Preview

Believe the hype – the Harpoon Beer Hall is as awesome as you’re anticipating it to be. Jeff and I attended a Friends of Harpoon preview of the hall on Wednesday night and cannot wait to go back!

The hall is part of a larger renovation at the brewery. Set in a prime spot along the waterfront, the hall offers a beautiful view of the city. Long tables line the room, and there are no televisions to distract people from the company surrounding them. The tables, benches, and bar are gorgeous – they’re made from Vermont butternut, and recycled wood. And interesting phenomenon occurred – strangers talked to each other! Friends were made! Shock! Awe! (For those of you not from Boston, this is not common occurrence.) Jeff and I chatted with a really nice couple sitting next to us, some guys sitting on our other side gave us one of their pretzels, and a random other person gave Jeff an extra beer token.

Being a television director, I had to try the 100 Barrel Series Directors’ Cut.

 

I love Harpoon beers, so it’s fun to try new batches and see what they’re experimenting with.

Plenty to choose from or sample…

According to Harpoon’s Twitter account, they’re waiting for final permit approvals and should be open very soon. (Update: According to Eater.com, it’s opening tonight at 5pm!) Cheers!

Harpoon Brewery and Beer Hall is located at 306 Northern Ave., Boston. Take the T – there’s a silver line stop right across the street!
