Toured the Sam Adams brewery on a cold and rainy day. EXCELLENT tour guide! He, I believe his name was Mike(?), was extremely knowledgable about beer, not just his own product but, that of beers around the world. The tasting at the end of tour was a punctuation mark on an informative tour. Basically, it was almost all you wanted... More

Finally, after living in the neighborhood for ten years, I made it to a tour. I've been on many such tours. Sam's is so laid back, informative, and tasty. It's an impressive company, to boot. You'll see that they promote a link with Doyle's, a local pub that has a great history in this formerly heavy Irish part of town.... More

A very knowledgeable tour guide and a heavy hand at pouring the brew at the end of the tour made this a very enjoyable diversion.

The tour guide was great and the beer was even better. This was a first for us. First brewery tour and it wont be the last. We missed the trolley to Doyle's but a group of us walked. Only a few blocks away. Had a great time!!!

We loved the 'Morning Mash In' tour. Saturdays, Tuesday and Thursdays at 9:40 AM! We were able to book our spot online (still a free tour with the suggested donation to charity). The best way of starting your day is with a beer tasting, right? Then, after the tour and a little shopping in the gift shop, it was time... More

We had an impromptu visit to Boston and the only thing we planned out was a trip to the Samuel Adams Brewery. I'm glad we did! The tour was short, but very interesting. Our tour guide was very funny. Then we went into a room to try out three different beers. Very cool. After that, they have a party trolley... More

This was a fun, informative and very interactive tour. Learned a lot about the brew process and the way to truly taste a beer. Don't miss the complimentary trolley to Doyle's for a quick bite and more beer. (Tips are surely appreciated.) The driver, Jason, was hysterical!!! After your bite to eat or another quick beer, pick up the trolley... More

Had a great time at the Sam Adams Brewery! Wasn't the biggest S.A. fan before I went; however, Jess and Maureen were our guides and did a really nice job! I learned a bit and had some good beer. Afterwards we decided to take the free shuttle to Doyle's due to other recommendations, and im so glad we did! Our... More

Being in the beer business myself, I was looking forward to doing the Sam Adams tour. It met my expectations. The tour was informative, the guide was good and the beer we tasted at the end was great.
