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

This was the best brewery tour we have ever done! Great displays and history of Sam Adams beer, walking tour with a great guide around the brewery, FREE beer sampling, great gift shop, and Free sampling Sam Adams glasses. The sampling beer session was also a learning experience of tasting the different beers.

First let me say I am not a beer fan. So why did I go...well my hubby is and when in Boston...do something you can only do in Boston right?! The employees make the tour fun and interesting and it's free with donations going to local charities (love that!). Oh and it's because of this tour that we wound up... More

I did the Sam Adams brewery tour in April 2016 with my mom and sister. The tour is free but they do ask for a suggested $2 donation for charity. Tours begin every 40 minutes to an hour and last about an hour including a tasting at the end. Yay for free beer! It was fun to learn a lot... More

Scott was a great guide with a great sense of humor. Kudos to Brody who also chatted with us after the tour. I love that the donation of $2 (or more) goes to local charities. How cool is that?! There were 3 beer samples at the end, all of which were self pours. It was worth the $5.50 round trip... 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.
