Virtual Vermonter - The Harpoon Brewery

Having grown up near their original brewery in White River Jct., I still have a hard time remembering to call this the Harpoon Brewery instead of the Catamount Brewery. Shortly after moving the brewery to Windsor, Catamount was purchased by Boston-based Harpoon, which was looking to expand their operation. The Harpoon Brewery now produces a variety of beers, including Catamounts (ex. Pale Ale, 8Lives, Porter) and Harpoon (ex. Munich Dark, Winter Warmer, Octoberfest).

Visitors to the Harpoon Brewery can tour it, purchase apparel, gifts and beer (or course) in the brewery store and visit the Beer Garden. The Visitors Center and brewery are open Tuesday through Saturday, 10-6, with guided tours available at 11 and 3. Groups and buses are also welcome for tours, although groups of twenty or more should call 802-674-5491 x221 to set up reservations. The Beer Garden offers deli sandwiches and beer in an indoor/outdoor cafe that is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10-6. The Harpoon Brewery can be found on Ruth Carney Drive in Windsor.


To find out more about the Windsor area, including lodging, dining, other attractions and more, stop by The Virtual Vermonter - Windsor.
