The location is tucked away and in a spot I would not expect. We were a little late to our scheduled tour, but the staff was more than accommodating and allowed us to go on the next tour and still get the extra sample we...More

Worth a visit if your in Boston. The tour isn’t long and you get an overview of the process and get to try some nice beers. Tour guide was great and really knew her stuff! Tour is free but they ask for a donation which...More

Planning my recent trip to Boston, Sam Adams was definitely on my radar to tour the brewery. We purchased the Beyond the Brewery tickets and our tour started at 6 pm. Our ticket prices were $20 & $30. The $30 included a bottle of “Barrel...More

We had the 1:00 free tour. It was so informative, impressive and fun tour. The women giving us the tour with the funniest. She totally made the tour top notch. You get 3 beer sampling’s and kids get root beer. Something for everyone.

Given the all the buzz around Sam Adams beers (and I'm a fan!), the experience provided at their brewery tour is somewhat disappointing. I don't even think that their tour could be called a tour. Beer tasting (which is free), some cool facts and staff...More

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

Hi, we didn't order tickets in advance and had no problem. Not sure though if you are going around the 4th of July, its a pretty busy time in Boston. I would order ahead if that is the case.
