This is a smaller brewery. The tour guides are very informative and use a few props to explain the brew process. After the tour, you will have the chance to taste a few of the Sam Adams beers. Make sure you receive your free glass!

The biggest difference between this tour and other brewery tours I have been on is that there is not a charge for going on it. As I was a little early for the tour, there was a beer garden to enjoy some of Sam Adams...More

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

As said, good tour, good that it's free but with a suggested charity donation. Tour guides were informative and amusing. Got to taste 3 different beers, the winter warmer was excellent. Little way out of the city and then a 5 min walk 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
