My favorite part of my vacation! I have been in a lot of different brew tours and this one is the shortest but Joe just made it the best!! He was great, thank you for making my day! Also, make sure you take the party trolley over to Doyle's afterward. The driver was hilarious and the food outstanding.

I woke up early so I could go in the 'Mash-in' tour that's only offered once a day, at 9:30am. The ones who loves beer should do that! You learn how it's made their beers and have a beer breakfast! Got to do it!

As a Home Brewer this was a highlight of a already wonderful trip to Boston. The tour guide was very entertaining. The beer tasting was great. We really had a good time. We took the Trolley to Doyle's after the tour. We even waited around on recommendation of our Sam Adams tour guide and took the Drinking tour of Boston... More

My husband and I went on this tour and we got a tour guide that talked really fast and therefore it was hard to pick up on what she was saying. Very disappointing.

A trip to the Sam Adam's brewery is a simple transit journey using the Orange line followed by a short 5 minute walk. You're greeted by staff prior to the tour where your ID is confirmed for those who want to drink an alcoholic beverage. If not, root beer is available. The key ingredients are explained to you including the... More

I've been on quite a few brewery and wine tours, and though this brewery is super small, this tour was one of my favorites. We went on a Saturday morning around 11:45 and made it onto the next tour. Sam Adams offers free tours (though a $2 donation that goes toward worthy charities is appreciated). Our tour guide was Chris,... More

Fantastic guided tour. Lots of fun and beer, of course. A chance to get some knowledge about the brewery process. Highly recommended.

We took a free tour through the facility and learned a little about the brewing process - the tour guides were very informative and had good senses of humor and held the attention well. At the end of the tour there was a beer tasting and we got to taste three types of beer. It was a fun visit.

It is a cool experience. Starts with an overview of their brewing lab, showing flasks all sorts of ingredients they use then in ends in bear tasting and a little shot as souvenir. It is very fun expereice for a group of friends. Don't forget to take the trolley bus, it is the cherry on top!

I took my father-in-law, aunt and husband to Samuel Adams for the tour and it was great. Our brewmaster was extremely knowledgeable and of course who doesn't love some tastings of beer. Will definitely be back when in the area.

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.
