This is a fun couple of hours. While you never actually get into the commercial brewery you do have the opportunity to learn about Sam Adams brewing process and history. After the tour your guide will bring you into the tasting room and provide 3 types of beer to sample. With the sampling comes the specifics of the brew and... More

Tour guides knowledgeable, great history of beer, and Sam Adams beer. Samples at the end. A bit far removed from Boston, but MBTA goes close, and they have good directions.

This tour was free with a $2 suggested donation. We booked our tickets online and did the first tour of the day! We got a good education on their brewery and then tried 4 different beers and got to keep our glass! Fun way to spend an hour and enjoy some great beer!

The owner makes you feel like you are a royal visitor from another colonial time and it has a first rate service reputation with the highest quality beer ever.

I had expected the tour to be longer than it was but it was informative and interesting. It lasted about 15 minutes. Then we drank beer for about 45 minutes! That was a learning experience as well as tasty. They teach how to "taste" beer, not just drink it.

I have been on a fair amount of brewery tours and this is one of the better ones. Be prepared to get messy! You get to handle all of the beer ingredients (except water), including hops, which managed to get in my hair and all over my jacket. At the end of the tour, the guide takes you through a... More

Interesting and informative tour with a chance to taste the beers afterwards, what's not to like, more than that it's FREE with just a suggested donation to charity. A more pleasant way to spend an hour is hard to imagine

I'm a big fan of Sam Adams beers, and the background of the brewery. As a result visiting the brewery was towards the top of our list when we were making plans to visit Boston. We researched, and tried to get tickets to the Morning Mash In tour before we got there. Unfortunately, they were out. We had read reviews... More

First stop on our morning brewery tour, our guide was hilarious. This guy knows his beer and educates you while leaving you cracking up. Even in the tasting room, his comments were hilarious. Would highly recommend taking a tour here!

Never been on a brewery tour. I don't even drink a lot of beer but it was interesting and fun. We got to sample some beers at the end of our tour and it helps you know what you do and do not like, whether you are new to beer or already have an idea of what you like.

Staying in Jamaica Plain

Neighborhood 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.
