I've been on a few brewery tours and this one definitely had the least to see but was still fun and interesting. the tour was about an hour including the beer tasting time. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. There were only 5 different areas to see on the tour which included the entrance, a sectioned off area to... More

Through friends we were told about the Sam Adams Brewery Tour and we all decided to go again! What a great tour it was. It was about half an hour and they told you about brewing beer and then took you in a room and let you taste it! LOVE Sam Adams and all the beers were very good! After... More

You need to get in early to make sure you don't miss out on a tour. The surprise was you don't pay admission, instead you give a donation which goes towards one of the charities chosen by the Brewery for that time. It was a very fascinating tour, learnt a lot about the process and seeing a functioning brewery was... More

I just visited the Sam Adams Brewery in Boston and was very disappointed. Being a Sam Adams drinker and having been to numerous other breweries, I was expecting much more from Sam Adams. The "tour" is really just a lecture located in 2 rooms, with no real facility to tour. I was hoping to taste some of the different brews... More

This is a short and sweet brewery tour with free beer at the end of the tour. The area its in is a little bit out of the way. But the tour was worth it. They suggested you donate about $10 for the brewery tour for our group. It was not expensive at all. Some of the members in our... More

I’ve been on a few brewery tours (Anchor Brewing; XXXX; Walkerville; Steam Whistle), and this is the best one I’ve been on to date. Here are the reasons why: -Tour is free (they accept donations) -You can send a post-card for free from the site (they cover postage). -Interactive displays and information was impressive in the lobby -Our guide was...

We went on the tour this past Saturday afternoon and had a good time. We had a fun and funny guide (Audrey) who made the group relax and laugh quite a bit. Similar to the other reviewers I would say that there isn't much of a "tour" because aside from the first corner room and the final tasting room, we... More

My husband and I make a habit of visiting breweries if available on our vacations...and since we were spending the weekend in Boston, we decided to find the Sam Adams brewery. It took a little doing - 2 T trains and a couple of blocks walk - but it is definitely worth doing!! Our guide was informative with just the... More

I'm not a beer drinker but my husband is and always has Sam Adams while we're Boston or on the Cape so he was keen to take the tour. I really enjoyed it as well, even liking a couple of the beers we tried. Grant who took the tour was good fun and knew his stuff.

Absolutely loved this little brewery tour in Boston. We were here for the first tour of the day at 10:00 am. It was a pretty large groupe - around 20-25 people I assume - but never crowded in any way. The tour isn't that long lasting which is because this is a relative small brewery. The main brewery for Samuel... More
