Free and informative. There are several tours available. We took the basic free tour. They provided a tasting at the conclusion of the tour and an introduction to some of the seasonal products that they are promoting. Explained the donations were going to worthy causes....More

Liz did a great job! There’s not much to see on the free tour, but she made us laugh the entire time — even before the free beer. The tasting room was a great spot to sit and try a flight after taking the tour.

The tour of the brewery was a quick walk-through and view of some equipment, but not as informative as tires of other breweries we have been through. The testing room at the end was nice and we sampled 4 beers.

Definitely worth a visit. We went during Oktoberfest weekend, and yes, it was really busy, but we didn’t feel rushed and the tour was fantastic. It’s not very often that you get something for free these days....... so a free tour, free beer samples and...More

I bought the Beyond the Brewery Tour, hoping for a more immersive experience compared to the free tour (and no lines). My advice is to take the free tour if you visit during the week outside of peak vacation times. There really is not much...More

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

I would call to confirm the times. When we were there Aug 2019, the first free tour was at 11:00 am and then every 20 minutes. We took the orange line to Stony Brook and it was just a short walk. The smokestack says... More

I enjoyed myself so much on this tour that I forgot to take in this information. Perhaps their website can illuminate this detail for you.
