The tours offered by Sam Adams are a really fun way to spend an hour especially if it's cold or raining outside. You learn a lot about the brewing process and get to taste some beers! Highly recommend!

There are several things that come to mind when you mention Boston, Samuel Adams Brewery should be one if you enjoy beer. I recommend the First Mash of the Day tour if you can. You can obtain the tickets for free via Eventbrite. The tour...More

This tour is well worth your trip to Jamaica Plain. Went there around Easter of last year, and caught the last tour of the day. Super guide, explained the process well, and we left with enough samples stowed in our gullets to make the walk...More

The original Sam Adams brewery offers a morning tour which includes tastings of some of their limited edition specialty beers. The basic tour is brief, but informative, covering the ingredients: barley, hops, water, and yeast; and the apparatus and process of brewing. The real charm...More

I've done the tour at Sam Adams more times than I can remember and have always enjoyed it. The guides have always been informative, and generally are entertaining. Other reviews have complained about the relative inactivity of the brewery, but this is to be expected...More

What a great place to visit, Very interesting to see how Sam Adams is made, Steve the tour guide was brilliant he made the tour more than just telling us about what happened in the process of making beer

The brewery tour itself was a little crowded and loud. I was hard to hear everything the guide had to say. In the tasting room, we were served three different types of beer, by the pitcher, for the table to share. The guide instructed us...More

I love beer. I love touring brewing facilities. I did not love my visit to Sam Adams. I was able to take the Orange Line to Stony Brook, no problem. However, there is no clear signage or help to find the brewery straight from the...More

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 don't believe they will turn away children, and it might be fun for them to tour the brewery, but quite frankly they will be bored after all the discussion about the brewing process...and if you decide to sit in on the... More
