We came too late to catch a tour but walked into the tasting room and ordered a flight of drinks to try. They also offer pretzels for sale. Pretzel is cold so don't expect it to be warm. They have a nice gift shop and...More

Chris was our tour leader. He was very knowledgeable and made the TIL our fun. The beer sampling was fantastic too. I recommend taking your pregnant wife so you can drink all of her portions too :)

Very hard to find with a misleading chimney to throw you off. No problem parking but the lot was pretty full. So inexpensive and well worth the trip. My only surprise was how very small the brewery was - but my perception was most likely...More

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.
