I would go this year but since they moved the date up I am all booked and not happy about it.

However I know for sure last year there was no way in hell that I would have been able to do a pub crawl afterwards.

I'm starting to think the early session is the way to be, allows for more time in the city afterwards. We've got accomodation in Cambridge, so I figure we can take the T right into the venue, do our thing, swing by Beer Works on Canal St, smoke a hookah in an underground cigar-bar in little Italy on Hanover, then head back up the Red line to Cambridge Brewing Co before we hit the sack (or stumble into a bush somewhere, whichever comes first).

Got my tickets today for the Sat early session.
My G.F. and I went to the Harpoon brewery last Sunday to do the tour and get our tickets.
No one working the tour had any knowledge of the event.
Emailed Harpoon on Tuesday and explained that I made the trip from Kingston just to purchase tickets.
Got a very nice email from
Michael C. Paone
Promotion Specialist @ Harpoon.
He took the blame for not having the tickets available on Sunday and was nice enough to set two aside until the G.F. could swing by and pick them up.

Looking forward to the event and hopefully meeting some members from H.B.T.

The people at Harpoon are great!
Glad the tickets worked out for you. I ordered mine online.
How'd you like the Harpoon tour? I am a "Friend of Harpoon" member and had a tour, well, it was more like a tasting, but I wasn't complaining.

The tour was short ,but the tasting was nice. It was a Sunday so tours on the hour instead of the 1/2. We tried some green I.P.A. straight from the fermenter, then some from the tap in the sample room. Then they gave us 20 -25 minutes to sample what ever we wanted.
I also joined friends of Harpoon . Seems like they have some decent events.

Do you know where you'll be stationed ? or what you'll be doing ?
If so we'll stop by and say hello.
