If you’re ever in the Boston area, you must make a stop at the Samuel Adams brewery. It’s a tiny brewery located off of the Orange line in a residential area, but it’s fairly easy to access. Tickets are free of charge, although there is a donation bucket with funds going to local charities (bring cash), and the brewery is first come first serve.
Since the brewery is so small, the tour was short and sweet. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all of the ingredients that go into their Samuel Adams recipes, and he was hilarious (always a plus). After the short tour we went into a tasting room where we received a complimentary Sam Adams tasting glass, and tried three different beers. The beers we tried included my personal favorites: OctoberFest and Boston Lager.
After the tour, you have the option of taking the free party trolley to Doyle’s Cafe — the first bar to put Sam Adams beer on tap. There you can get a $5 beer and complimentary Samuel Adams glass. It’s totally worth it!
The tour was cheap, fun, and we walked away with a tasting glass and regular sized glass each!
