My husband, my best friends and their adult daughter, and I went on a tour here. I am the only one in the group who did not like beer - but even I enjoyed the tour! It's very informative! You get to taste the different hops that they use in the brew making. After the tour you get generous samples... More

This was a great tour! My husband and I went while visiting Boston and it was so great! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. We were given a lesson on beer making and the process, which was interesting to learn. After the beer making lesson we were taken into the tasting room. Everyone was given a free tasting... More

This place was great. I went with my 7 year old son and my boyfriend. I dont like beer, and obviously my son doesnt drink. It was still, for all of us, a very informative tour. They made us smell and taste grains they use, they explained the processes and showed us the equipment. Our tour guide was great. We... More

This is not a full brewery, they specialize in making special experimental beers. That said, they give a great tour. Our guide was funny yet informative. Of course the beers were great! The brewery is a little hard to find. We took a tour of Fenway Park and then took a taxi to the brewery. Cost was around $20. We... More

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the Sam Adams Brewery. It was very informative and entertaining. We really liked the free glass and 3 free samples of different beers. I would recommend this tour.

We did the 10 AM tour of Sam Adams Brewery. This is their smallest brewery. Our tour guide gave us lots of information on each step of the beer brewing process. This is on the T stop Stony Brook on the Orange Line. You go left out of the station and down two blocks. Turn right and should run right... More

The brewery tour part was a little underwhelming, mainly because of the size. But it was great in the tasting room. Informative, entertaining, and drinking! Get there 30 minutes before the first tour to guarantee a spot on Saturdays There is a subway stop two blocks from the brewery that goes to and from the center of downtowm.

I visited this brewery with some family and friends as someone who doesn't mind a glass of beer but isn't a big fan. However I really enjoyed the tour. The tour itself is short but informative. You then get given a free 7oz glass that is filled with 3 free samples of different beers all of which were interesting. Our... More

I had so much fun here! I was shocked that the tour was free. It was very informative & interactive. The tour guide was great. He made the tour funny & enjoyable. After the tour we tasted 3 different beers (you get to keep your glass which is cool). Then we went outside and sampled 3 more and voted on... More

We were surprised to be told there was no entrance fee to the brewery - they asked for a $2 donation for charity. Its a small brewery tour only takes about an hour you get to taste three different beers - we didn't like the Sam Adams IPA - the taste stayed with us. If taking the subway its a... More
