We did the tour about two weeks ago while visiting Boston. Our tour guide, Stu, was very funny. We got to try some beers at the end of the tour which were very good and I'm not a big beer drinker! I recommend doing the tour. There's no fee but they do ask for a donation for a local charity... More

The tour was extremely informative and hands-on. Loved the interactive between the guide and the tourists. You will definitely not be short-changed on the amount of free sampling once you get to the bar area at the end of the tour. What fun! Beware of gift shop - you'll want everything.

The tour setup was well organized on a busy Saturday and our guide was humorous and very well informed about beer. This was one of the best things we did during our four days in Boston. We also sampled about four types of beer and really learned about it.

This was a short but entertaining and informative tour. The brewery is small since it only brews craft and specialty beers. Our guide, Alisha was both fun and knowledgeable. The end of the free tour includes free beer tasting. Plenty of time and beer provided. I found it a great way to spend some free time in the Boston area.... More

My friends and I had a great time at the Sam Adams Brewery! Katie did our tour and she was a ball of fire! Loud, funny, sarcastic, and bery smart about her beers. She can also chug. Enough said. Anyway, the tour was great, beers were great, location is great. And it's all free! They ask for a donation to... More

A great trip into the history of Samuel Adams Brewery. The tour is fairly small but so is the original brewery. The tour then culminates with a tasting, always welcome. A great beer place to visit.

I highly recommend planning ahead and reserving the Morning Mash In - available at 9:40 on Saturdays and on TUE/THU in the summer. It is well worth the planning. You can reserve it online, although they said they usually keep a few spots available for walkins. (and, if you can't make it, you can always cancel your reservation online, so... More

My girlfriend and I visited the brewery and we were very pleased from the tour itself and the visit to Doyle's at the end. Our tour guide Alisa was very knowledgeable and above all entertaining. To top it off, the ride to Doyle's on the "Party Trolley" was entertaining in itself. One flaw from the brewery/Doyle's visit was learning that... More

Visited on a Friday and had a decent time. The gentleman who ran our tour was either having a bad day, or should seek a job in a different field. While funny at times, he made the educational portion boring, making sure to show how knowledgeable he was and that he was not happy to be there. The tasting portion... More
