* Harpoon Beer Hall

Once a cold glass of Harpoon touches your lips, it’s truly love at first taste Harpoon Beer Hall is packed on the weekends, drawing in beer lovers from all over.  Sometimes, the line even stretches out to the street with eager beer connoisseurs awaiting a cold glass.

Harpoon Beer Hall takes its craft extremely seriously…it is a true work of art.  The hall proudly offers Harpoon’s freshly brewed draft beer to guests, in addition to scrumptious baked pretzels that come with a tasty selection of dipping sauces.  This is the prime location to relax and savor beer with a group of friends.  A lively Harpoon Beer Captain provides each guest with two critical tools needed on this journey: a pint of Harpoon (right from the original source) accompanied with a big freshly baked pretzel.  What’s better than that?

In this beer hall, you can put all of your time and focus into appreciating the beer before you, as it boasts a ‘TV-free atmosphere.”  At Harpoon, they cherish the love for the art of beer.  Calling out to all fellow beer lovers at heart: come and join in on the hype!

Sunday through Wednesday, the Beer Hall is open from 11am to 7pm.  Thursday through Saturday, the Beer Hall stays open until 11pm.

* Jacob Wirth

When it comes to great beer, Jacob knows the entire lowdown.  An authentic and lively German Beer Hall located in the heart of Boston’s bustling downtown, Jacob Wirth offers guests a sumptuous selection of 46 taps to choose from (which are always rotating).  Although, Jacob stays true to the tradition of his cultural roots, putting a major emphasis on German-style brews.  Maybe we are a bit biased in our love for German beer, but Jacob Wirth has a delicious brew for every palate.

Come to Jacob Wirth; raise your glass…and prost!

With impressive stats like this, why look anywhere else?  Order a pulled pork sandwich, prepared deliciously with craft beer braised pork, pickled jalapenos, Napa cabbage slaw and sweet & spicy barbecue sauce.  Accompany it with some Brooklyn Lager, and you’re all set.
