Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall

Harpoon was started by three friends who loved beer but found that their options were incredibly limited. These three men, Dan Kenary, Rich Doyle, and George Ligeti, made it their mission to create a beer that not only brings people together but also creates variety and enjoyment. Today, these men own Harpoon Brewery and Beer hall located in south Boston. They continue to bring students, peers, and communities together through several events and brewery tours. Their love for beer turned into love for community and thus nourishes the Boston community with beer.

With several locations in the Boston area, Boston Beer Works is one of the best craft breweries in the city. The Fenway location is one of the brewery’s finest, seeing as it is in the heart of Boston and right next to the beloved Fenway Park- home to the Red Sox. The brewery attracts tourists who are in the area to see the historic baseball park as well as locals and townies as they prepare to cheer on their favorite team. Their seasonal beers and ciders are most popular in the fall as they release new flavors and new methods of brewing.
