Toured on July 4th, 2014. A brief tour, loud and noisy with large groups. Staff was friendly. Very short tour. They do offer the chance to taste different varieties of malt which was unusual. Small tasting with three different beers. I had the Oyster stout, which was new to me. I am glad I did it once. Beer and very expensive souvenirs for sale at the end of the tour.

If you are in the Boston area you have to make your way over to Jamaica Plain to take a tour of this place. Itís a free tour and instead they ask that you donate to one of the charities they provide for. Jameson and Graham were the tour guides for my group and they were extremely entertaining and knowledgeable. We were able to sample three beers at the end: Boston Lager, Summer Ale, and Rebel IPA.

Boston Beer Companyís strategy is to make good, accessible beer and to educate and thus convert the swill drinkers, this tour did a fantastic job of that. The free tour was highly entertaining and interactive with a knowledgable and personable host. Iíve heard how beer is made probably a thousand times by now, but it was described in a fun and entertaining way on the tour. The tour ends in a large tasting room and everyone gets three samples of beer. We had a Boston Lager, Summer Ale and an Independence IPA. I highly reccomend coming here as a fun, touristy thing to do. It is also free.

We really enjoyed the tour here, and bonus, it is free. We went on the first tour of the morning, and didnít have to deal with any of the crowd related issues mentioned by others. The little museum type area where you wait has some cool stuff to check out. The tour itself is fairly standard, but we had a friendly and entertaining guide. They only make one-offs, experimentals, and barrel room stuff here pretty much, so thereís no bottling line or anything. Our tasting was 3 pours, Sam, Sam Summer, and a one-off I hadnít tried before (Independence IPA). Generally I think they try to have one of the 3 be a one-off like that. The gift shop had some of the barrel room beers for $10/750, so not a bad price at all. Also, if you take your ticket to Doyleís and buy a Sam Adams beer you can get a free one of their Sam Adams glasses.

Not much going on except for the tour, which is definitely worthwhile. Only got to see a limited part of the brewery due to construction, but the tour guide was awesome. As one of the most well-known craft breweries, they do a great job making craft beer culture approachable to non-beer drinkers. Only get to try 3-4 beers at the end of the tour, but you can get a special one from time to time. Timing worked out that I got to try the 26.2 Brew made each year for the Boston Marathon. Cool place and itís hard to beat free.

The free tour is brief but pretty good. You donít see much of the brewing equipment but they do give you barley and hop samples to taste and smell as well as three free tasters. Try to arrive early to wander around the mini-museum before the tour starts.

Stopped by for the tour which lasted about an hour. Typical tour, not too exciting, tasting room the highlight. Staff was very friendly. Felt like I needed to visit Samuel Adams. Did get a free tasting glass.

Visited this place at the end of April 2012. Plenty of people on a Saturday afternoon but the tours are well organize and they are able to accommodate quite a few people. This is basically free since they only request small donations. The tour last about one hour and takes you through the different beer brewing steps. It was quite neat to try different malt and see the barrels for aging the beers. The tap room is interesting with three free samples. I think this warrant the detour since it is quiet easily accessible by train.
