Noah was a great tour guide with wit & humor. Enjoyed tasting the variety of barley that they use. Recently attended a beer dinner & had many questions about beer choices in the gift shop at Sam Adams. Based on my likes Noah assisted in selecting beers to purchase. Appreciate that don't change an admission fee, but recommend a $2... More

Such a great brewery tour! We got to sample several malt varieties, which was totally new to me, and see some of the barrels and tanks. Our tour guide, Noah, was funny and informative :) not much historical info about such an old brewery, but it was more than made up for with beer sampling! We tried five beers, more... More

We visited the Brewery on New Years Eve and made the first tour of the day. The tour is two areas next to each other, but then you get taken to the sample room. That day jugs of four different beers were brought out and we got very merry and spent far too much in the gift shop afterwards LOL... More

There were four of us, two couples, the guys wanted to go, so we went. And all of us had a great time. If you just want to go on the free tour, its about an hour and it ends up in a quaint room and you taste three different brews. They give out more then we all could drink... More

We did this on a whim because we had a free afternoon in Boston. It was great! We've done many, many brewery tours before but this was one of the best. The tour guide was friendly and informative. The tour was unique; they not only explained the whole process and showed us the equipment, they also let us try (eat!)... More

Neighbourhood 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.
