It was great to see the home of one of America's favorite brews, but the tour itself was not very exciting or educational. You don't really get to see inside the brewery or learn about any of the innovation there. If you've ever toured Fat Tire in Colorado, you will find the Sam Adams tour in Boston disappointing. Fat Tire's... More

Took this short tour with a couple friends. Great parking, and easy to get to. Our guide was very animated and made the tour interesting. Sampled ingredients that go into making beer, followed by the beer tasting itself. They provided a good sampling, including a new beer they were working on. No entry charge, just a donation. Fun activity on... More

This is a really cool brewery if you've ever had the beer. They walk you through a small tour for a $2 fee. The tour lasts about an hour, but half of that is just tasting the beers in the tasting room. You will be shown the ingredients of beer, and you can taste these too. You are also shown... More

We went on the early morning mash tour. Our guide , Noah, was hilarious! He was knowledgable, informative and most of all, a very funny guy. He had the whole tour in fits of laughter. A real credit to his company. I've never been a big beer drinker but S. Adams beer is excellent and full of flavour. The tour... More

So visted Samuel Adam's brewry today, what an experience. For a person who has fallen out of love with beer over the coming years, Samuel Adam's has restored my love for beer. The friendly staff are very helpful and knowledgeable answer guest questions and making everyone feel welcome as soon as you step through the front doors. The tour is... More

Went on the early Morning mash tour. Noah was fab, really made it fun and informative. It's not a detailed tour but covers all the basics and is fun. Beer tasting at he end of the tour and a free trolley bus to Doyle's which is an absolute must. The Brewery is easy to find, take the Orange line to... More

Wanted to find something fun to do before heading to Fenway for a game. Samuel Adams Brewery offered an amazing tour. Went to the 12noon tour on 09/12/16 and had a blast while learning so many things. My hubby and friends are beer lovers and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I am now a lover of Samuel Adams adult beverages. I... More

The tour was a little boring but you got some free beer. Jason runs trolley to Doyles Pub from Sam Adams that was the best. He is an awesome guy would go again just to hang with him.

Sam Adams Brewery takes the beer brewing process and makes it interesting with customer interactions, other than simply tasting. I've taken brewery tours at places such as Guinness, Heineken, Lake Front and Sam Adams takes the cake for being the best tour I've taken. Our tour guide (I believe it was Jack), was fantastic. Every one was laughing and enraptured... More

Neighborhood Profile
Jamaica Plain
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 JP.
