The Sam Adams brewery tour was great! First, it's free - with an option to donate to a few charities the brewery supports. You will most likely have to wait awhile for your tour to start, and there's not a ton of options around for food - so I'd recommend eating before/after you go. They take you to each important...

Our guide was fun and though the brewery tour itself was relatively short it was interesting as we didn't know so much about the process before coming. After the tour the brewery staff made us sit and try 3 different beers. They gave explanations on the differences between the 3 samples. Even if you actually don't like beer, like me,... More

We toured Thursday afternoon 8/27/15 at 2:30. Our tour guide was a riot. Every other statement was a joke, all in good beer taste. It is a bit warm in the brewery, so dress light. We sampled 3 beers, liked the Oktoberfest best. All they ask is a $2.00 donation to charity, and they let your keep your sampling glass.... More

Great tour of the Samuel Adams brewery. The tour doesn't take long due to the brewery being small. It is very informative and the guide will keep you entertained as well as describing the brewing process. It is hands on with smelling the hopps, or tasting different types of barley. The best part is in the tasting room where you... More

Don't go late in the day, reservations usually filled up. We got to Sam Adams about 3 pm, tour was for 4:30 pm (barely made that group). They tell us we might ride trolley to Doyle's pub. The pub was OK, but the trolley was quite entertaining - disco ball, music, funny driver. After getting back for the tour, was... More

If you like good beer and like to know the process to make beer this is a must :) You have a guide(btw; ours was kinda boring, like reading a script totally emotionless) which explains the process of making beer, it describe the basis about malts and hops at the final part you can taste 3 different beers they give...

We took our 21 year old son on this tour and it was great fun! Note you must be 21 to go on this tour. Our guides, Jack and Maureen were fun, informative and made the experience memorable. We got to taste all the different grains and who knew that hops were so aromatic. Loved how we all were rubbing... More

I am not a beer drinker, but I enjoyed this visit alot! My husband and I were on vacation with another couple and this was on our must do list. A donation of $2 for the tour goes towards great local causes. The tour itself I kind of zoned out on halfway through, but that's b/c I wasn't all that... More

I liked the tour. Obviously I really liked the free beer samples even more!. I think you could probably go back more times to get free beer and they won't mind!

They actively make beer there but it is not be bottling and distribution site. You get to try 3 beers we had Boston lager, octoberfeat and brick... More
