The tour is FREE - yes, you read that right, although I recommend the suggested tip since they were soo good. Tours are conducted every 30 mins. They explained well the process, showed us everything (and common, it's beer, so of course it's exciting!). After the tour, we get 3 FREE beer samples, which, yes, can get you tipsy because... More

Great time! The tour guide was fun, knowledgeable and funny! The tour consisted of showing the group some of the beer making process, talking about the 4 main ingredients used in making beer and lastly the best part was the sampling of some of the Sam Adam's products. Parking was tough to find but well worth the hassle. The trolley... More

Loved it! Had always wanted to visit and so glad I did! Our tour guides were Jack and Eric. Eric greeted us at the door and was very nice and even knew about the small town where we were from! Jack was funny the whole tour and very informative about the brewing process. The tap room was very nice and... More

Kyle was a funny tour guide who provided entertainment and interesting beer facts some which I remember some not. No worries the beer tasting was what most of us came for and it did not disappoint. Definitely fun.

We enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Stu had some funny lines and enjoyed beer with us in the tasting room. We learned about the ingredients and the process of how they make beer, sampled three beers (good sample sizes), got a free glass with our samples, and the gift shop was very cool - and reasonably priced. I would... More

Despite being a Saturday afternoon and a line out the door, we were quickly placed in a group of about 25 for a 20 minute tour. We waited less than15 minutes, which really impressed me since there were so many people, and the tour was fun and very informative. The tasting was so enjoyable as we met and gabbed with... More

I don't drink beer, but our tour guide was very funny and personable, making the tour an enjoyable as well as educational experience. We had a great time in the tasting room and learned quite a bit about what makes a good beer. I highly recommend taking the party trolley over to Doyle's!
