i must say I've been to many beer tours all over the country- mostly smaller companies (MN craft beers, etc). This was a fun one. Just the right length of time and the end is the beer tasting and gift shop. (Most, if not all tours end like that) The beer tasting was very organized. You all sit in long... More

We got to the brewery aprox 9:45 a.m. The tour is free but we each gave a donation. The waiting area was very nicely done with lots to look at. The tour was nice and short. It was a little hard to hear in the brewing area. We then went into the tasting room where we were given a small... More

Went to the Sam Adams Brewery during a beautiful Spring day in Boston. A great location in JP, walking distance from Stony Brook Orange line and Arnold Arboretum. Had to wait about 35 minutes for our tour time but there are two cafes/restaurants next door to pass the time. The tour guide was exuberant, entertaining and hilarious. He provided us... More

Our tour guide was excellent (Matt?), learned a couple of things about the brewing process. At the end you get to taste three different beers which is no bad. After the tour you can take the party bus which will take you to Doyles (supposedly the first establishment that served Sam Adams beer), if you have the time I'll recommend... More

It's a free one hour tour. They offer the explanation but you see very little of the brewery. Out tour guide was Sam and he made it fun. The best part is the last portion where they sit you in a"bar" and you get to taste 3 different versions of the famous Adams. They give you a free glass as... More

This tour was fairly short and they give everyone 3 free beers at the end to try. We had their boston lager, irish red and their 26.2. They request $2 per person for donations for the tour but don't really enforce it. Do the Doyles Trip after the tour. Worth for the Bus Ride and the free beer glass.

I found myself in Boston twice in one year. Both times I made a point to stop at this Brewery. Though this Brewery is more of a historical site since they don't brew much of the beer here anymore. The tour is small as is they brewery in general but the tasting is great. They have beer that is only... More

Tours run about an hour. The first segment describes the start up of the business and the process used to make the beer. It can be 15-20 minutes of standing. Then off to the sampling room! You get a 7 oz taster glass for sampling the beer and you get to keep the glass! Don't forget to stop at the... More

About an hour long tour with a tasting of 3 different beers. Definitely learned things about hops and brew times and ales and lagers. Was a lot of fun. Then just when you think it's over the party trolley rolls up. Take the trolley to Doyles! (add fist pump here / you'll understand once you do the tour) have a... More

We only waited about 20 minutes to get in. We took the subway to get there. We had a guide who shared info and then went to the tasting room. They picked out the 4 beers we would taste and I think that changes with each group. They were generous with the beer. The tour does not cost but they... More
