Okay, so I might be biased, but I do love Harpoon Brewery. Not only is it located in Boston, but Kevin and I have a friend who is a brewer here.
Also, they opened a Beer Hall and it is absolutely spectacular. Tons of seating, natural light, a view inside the brewery and a view of the water, and endless beer.
Now, when I say a freelancer can work out of here, I don’t mean every day, and I don’t mean every freelancer (or remote worker, etc.). Today, I was looking for a spot nearby the convention center where I was attending INBOUND 2015 (a conference for inbound marketers), where I could indulge in some delicious beer offerings and get some work done. For me, Harpoon was the perfect spot.
If you are looking for quiet, don’t think this is for you. I like being surrounded by noise, just not noise that is directed at me. Think coffee shop, but gradually amped up as time goes by and people drink more. If you’ve ever done work in a bar and enjoyed it, then you should try this out. (Keep in mind that while I’ve seen one outlet, they are not plentiful.)
Today, I arrived around 2 or 2:30, and was surprised by how many people were here in the middle of the day on a Wednesday. It is now 3:45 and it’s just getting more and more crowded.
Food and Drink
I had a prezel and a sampler. Normally, I’d just have one beer, but the specialty options were too intriguing. Theo’s Tartness, a Belgian IPA, Lemongrass Ginger Wheat, and MMQB Saison. Tasty. And the pretzel was perfect for snacking my way through my conference notes and this blog, while keeping up with the #INBOUND15 hashtag.
Are you a freelancer in Boston? Will you be checking out Harpoon?
