The brewery itself was much smaller than I expected (not the main production plant for Sam Adams), however the presentation was very informative. The beer sampling was also very nice. They also provided non-alcoholic options for anyone who did not/could not drink alcohol. You could also smell and sample pieces of hops and barley that they use for brewing. If... More

Tour was about an hour long, not too much to see as this is just a Research and Development Facility for Sam Adams. They do bottle a couple different beers, that they sell only at this facility. Definitely fun! Go to Doyle's after food is great and the bar is cool!

Whether you are visiting Boston for the first time or a local, always a great place. Its small as this is the place were they try new brews out and do small batches. But, it has come a long way from my first visit years ago. Really cool waiting area and tour is quick but good. Two big tasting rooms... More

I'm a beer guy, no doubt about it. However in my six years going to Boston, I had never been to the Sam Adams brewery. My mistake. It starts with a very welcoming atmosphere where you can look around at the history of the company. Then you go on an hour tour of the brewery where your guide explains the... More

This tour is a lot of fun. It's definitely not for someone who is expecting to get a serious lesson on brewing beer but more just a quick information session on the brewing process and a little history of the Sam Adams brand. During our visit, the staff was very cool and our tour guide, Sam, was super knowledgable and... More

A great tour of the brewery and the free samples at the end don't hurt either. Very informative to the making of beers and how and what goes in to the making. Go you won't be disappointed.

This was a great tour and if you love Sam Adams and you are in Boston you must stop. The tour started with an explanation of the beer and how they make it and ingredients and we got to smell and see ingredients and they also have a cool showroom where they have descriptions of the beers and how it...

Didn't like this one as much as Harpoon's. I am not a beer drinker, and none of their beers changed my mind. Beer tasting room was big room with tables and pitcher of beers were passed around. I didn't care for this part. At Harpoon's you could taste about 10-12 beers. Sam Adam's was about 4 different ones. I didn't... More

We had time to kill and this came up on trip advisor! The guys were all in. Let me just say it was super informative and super fun! At the end they allow you to taste 3 beers and for the kiddos have root beer and you get to keep the testing glass! The best part is after the tour... More
