Harpoon Brewery knows how to throw a party. On Saturday they hosted hundreds of beer fans for their St.Patrick’s Festival 2016. For 25 dollars you gained entrance, a plastic pint glass, and one beer ticket.
Insider tip: The line grows quickly. If you don’t get there early, you could wait hours to get in. Get there by 12:00 p.m. Or become a Friend of Harpoon and you’ll be able to buy an early bird ticket online and skip the line. Best. Decision. I. Ever. Made.
It was cold on Saturday, but the Brewery had large heated tents, and plenty of beer. There were live bands playing all day, showcasing bagpipes and plenty of men in kilts. It was a great way to kick off the St. Patrick’s celebrations in Boston.
The brewery is right on the waterfront, in the same renovated warehouse where the company brewed its first Harpoon Ale in 1987.
