On our way home south, we decided to stop in and take a peek at Harpoon Brewery's Vermont location.Location: 336 Ruth Carney Drive, Windsor, VT, ample parkingCost: FreeI have to admit...I am not a huge fan of beer, but I am willing to try anything once or twice. We walk in, and are greeted by two cheering attendants at a bar. We tell them we are there for the tour, and they direct us to a door in the back.It was more like a holding pen. There was some fencing to keep us from wandering places we shouldn't. You kind of didn't know what you were looking at. The guys working in the brewery were friendly and said hello to us. One told us what they were bottling that day (an IPA). There was a small display behind us discussing the history of Harpoon, and beer.We then went back in for our samplings. I tried two beers, and my girlfriend tried two of their own sodas. We decided to make up a six pack (soda mainly, and one beer for her dad) and we headed down the road.They also have a little restaurant in there. I can't speak to the food, as we didn't eat there,The staff was friendly, beer was relatively tasty, and prices were good. I would consider going back there again.
