Learn about the process of beer making and got to taste about 3 of their beers. You don't get to see a lot of the Brewery itself but loved the free beer.

This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to

Is this a good trip to do during the winter or would it be more enjoyable to wait for better weather?

Yes, you will wait outside prior to your tour. If cold or snowing wait for better weather.
