The Brewery tour was good, with plenty of corny jokes and free tastings to make the free admission (although a donation of at least $2 is encouraged for charity) totally worth it. But it was the free trolley to Doyle's cafe afterwards that made me really love Sam Adams. They clearly support their local neighbors (Doyle's Cafe), and their incorporation... More

This is an informative and fun tour. Nice to try the different brews afterward. Go to the local pub afterward to continue the frivolity.

If you didn't know beforehand that this is not the actual brewery for the beer you buy in the store then maybe it wouldn't be a surprise. The staff was fun and gave the usual robotic tour you might expect with a few jokes thrown in, but maybe they shouldn't be allowed to drink all day-the Friday afternoon tour was... More

Been on many beer tours & this one was informative. Hands on experience with several beer tastes examining color/taste/clarity/brew styles. Reminded me of the wineries of Napa & Sonoma ... BUT with beer. Gift store too.

Went on a tour with connor a couple days before the new years. He was great and knowledgable about the brewing process of beer. My favorite part was the tasting section at the beginning . I enjoyed his insight. I have already recommend this tour to people I meet through my job here in Madison WI.

This was a great, FREE tour (They suggest a $2 donation, but they're not aggressive about it). To start, my bf and I went for the first tour of the day, the early bird. I didn't think that there would be many RSVPs for a weekday so I didn't try RSVPing til the night before only to find that the... More

Noah was a great tour guide with wit & humor. Enjoyed tasting the variety of barley that they use. Recently attended a beer dinner & had many questions about beer choices in the gift shop at Sam Adams. Based on my likes Noah assisted in selecting beers to purchase. Appreciate that don't change an admission fee, but recommend a $2... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
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 JP.
