Fantastic tour. About 30 mins with another 30 minutes testing 4 different beers. Even our three teenager kids were engaged and talked about the ingredients and processes later. The tasting glasses are free to take home later and the kids were given root beer. A...More

What a fun tour. I have been on many brewery tours and this was by far the most interactive with the host. There was gone good education followed by some good beer tasting. The tour ends in front of the gift shop and ale house....More

Enjoyed the free tour of the research and development site. You learn a lot about beer see how they do things and get right to the tasting. Takes about an hour and is close to the orange line for the T system.

Right outside of the Sam Adams brewery exit. There are bench seats where you can sit and wait for the next trolley to come by to pick you up. It’s a free round-trip ride to Doyles
