We have three kids aged 8-11 and the tour was the perfect amount of information and entertainment. I really appreciate that the tasting room provides Root beer for the kids or those not wanting Beer! I love the tasting glasses, I've never been in a tour that lets you take them home! How thoughtful that they even provide wrapping for... More

T'was the final stop after two days in the Boston area and arrived just as they opened on a Saturday. Already there was a line to get in and see a tour and the earliest tour time available at that point was 45 minutes later. We opted to just go to the gift shop and pick up some goods. The... More

After sitting in the car for a almost 6 hour drive we arrived at the Sam Adams brewery tour. Arrived and joined the last tour of the day. This place does not actually make beer but has all the items you would need on display to see and has a Great staff to explain everything about the company and process... More

We had the 9:30am brew tour at Sam Adams Brewery and loved every minute of it! It's never to early in the morning to sample great beer!

Doug and Alison gave us a tour of 1850s German beer law, beer's ingredients and how the ingredients tour into liquid bread. After that they offer you a small tasting glass (you get to keep this little gem) and provide pitchers of 3 different brews from Sam Adams. After showing you how to properly taste beer, they show you the... More

The tour itself was alright. Nothing I would jump to do again nor tell people they had to do it when they go to Boston. They don't make a lot of the beer there as your told in the tour they have facilities in other states that mass produce their product. I believe they said they make their smaller limited... More

Still, there are a few things you need to know. First: there is no charge for the actual tour. However, a $1.50 donation to local charities is suggested. Your guide will tell you about the various options. All are worthy. And c'mon, free beer? Second: while the tour roughly lasts an hour, half of that consists of beer science and... More

What a fun time at the brewery! Very informative and one heck of a beer sampling area! This is a fun and interactive your for adults. Then you can take a fun trolley ride over to Doyle's restaurant . One of the oldest bars in Boston with great food. We also got to keep the best Sam Adams beer glass... More

I tried Samuel Adams about 1 year ago and have been a big fan since then. If you love this brew as much as I do and you are in Boston don't even doubt of going there. Our guides Lindsay and Andy where just great...and the beer was simply amazing, I don't know if was just me, but the beer... More

If you like beer (good beer), and enjoy the at of zymurgy, then you MUST take the Samuel Adams Brewery Tour. Very informative and friendly staff, plus a beer tasting session that was fantastic. My wife and I highly recommend this activity.
