We are beer snobs. We usually try to find a beer tour or great watering hole whenever we travel. I was excited to go on this tour and was not let down. It's a research facility so it's not really a brewery in the traditional sense. Doug was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He told us the history... More

Great tour where you can learn and taste all the different ingredients that blend to make beer. Honestly I'm not always a huge fan of their products, but you have to give them major points for experimentation and tring a lotof different styles of beer. I'm definitely a smarter beer consumer after this tour - and it was juts plain... More

We went in for the free tour (only requesting a donation for local charities). We arrived around 9:45 and had no issue getting tickets for the 10:00 tour. The waiting area for the tour is filled with a variety of information on Sam Adams (about 10 different spices they add to some of their beer out for you to smell),... More

After living in Boston for several years and recently spending time at home with a broken foot I never thought of visiting the Sam's Adams Brewery. This was fun, informative and free. The history behind the beer ( no spoilers) how its made and packaged with a humorous touch of explanation from our tour guide Audrey made the tour perfect... More

This brewery is quite a ways from the downtown area and in a residential neighborhood, which makes it a little tricky to get to. This small brewery is where there make small-batch beers and do some of their experimenting. They make beer there for the Bruins games and some events in the area, but the large-scale brewing occurs outside of... More

The Sam Adams brewhouse is an excellent way to spend an afternoon or morning. Good value, free beer, fun guides, who really know their craft and free beer. The tour is informative for anyone interested in beer and brewing , from the novice to the master brewer, and lasts for about 60 minutes. Highly recommended!
