Fun informative tour with a lot free beer to taste! Love that it was a free tour with donations to charity instead. Great way to get a feel for Boston culture too.

This may not be Sam Adams' biggest location, but it's definitely their most important. Every Sam Adams beer starts here, and the tour provides a nice insight on their brewing process. In addition to an overview of the brewing process, you get the chance to...More

My husband and I visited the Sam Adams tap house to drink fresh brews, and we loved it! We each did a tasting, which is composed of four, well-sized samples. We were able to try everything on tap minus the IPAs (we don't really like...More

We bought a beer in the beer garden before the tour and then got to smell and taste the hops that go into beer brewing during the tour. Our tour guides were students from Northeastern University and very well versed in the beer brewing process...More

Fun experience at the Samuel Adams Brewery. This place is like a small laboratory where they experiment with new flavors and do research, and not the industrial plant. They have smaller vats and lots of Sam Adams memorabilia like awards, pictures and historic artifacts. Daniel...More

This is a great tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. The tour is free and we sampled 3 beers at the end. Worth the trip out there.

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to

Right outside of the Sam Adams brewery exit. There are bench seats where you can sit and wait for the next trolley to come by to pick you up. It’s a free round-trip ride to Doyles

Depends if you are interested in brewing the beer or drinking it. I would say " no" as the brewing lecture is very basic and you don't actually see the brewing process
