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.

Neighborhood has a slightly depressing "once was" feeling to it. The estate is fairly large. The brew tour was excellent and only 2$ donation which also gets you a nice sampling glass. Very informative and upbeat guide. We group sampled 3 offerings while the tour guide explained the ins and outs of each beer. Then, to my approval they asked us to sign a petition for the state to allow Sam Adams to serve guests more than the maximum limit of free beer.

Iíve been on this tour about 6 times so far. It lasts exactly one hour and you get to see all the trophys and megals theyíve won and see how the beer is made (just like any other brewery tour). The last time I went, the tour guide walked in the front door right at noon, chugged the bottle of beer he was carrying, wiped his mouth with his sleeve, tossed the empty bottle, and jumped on the riser and launched into his "Hey! Howís everybody doing?!" speil. Yup, I knew I was in for an awesome tour. This is their R&D brewery where they come up with new products as well as make Sam Adams for the bars in the Boston area. The tasting room is cool and resembles a cramped beer hall where they pass a pitcher of beer down the long tables so you can fill your free sample glass. Contrary to what the last rater said, they only do three different beers (I asked if I could sample one of the other beers they had on tap and the tour guide said no, that the law only allows three samples. They serve Sam Adam Boston Lager, whatever seasonal is out, as well as something new (or old). Once they served up Old Fezziwig which hadnít been made for a few years at that point. The last time I went in November, they served the Black Lager which wasnít available yet. As with all tours, it ends in the gift shop.

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.

I love going to this brewery. The are so helpfull, friendly, and so into their job. But the best part of going is hopefully the suprise of the tasting. With your free small SA glass, you try 3 styles for free. Usually they start with regular SA larger, then a seasonal thats out or coming out next season, and a good suprise like a beer thatís not going to be produced, hopefully. I have a GPS in my car to i found it fine, but i can imagine it would be hard to find without it.

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.

Had a blast here. Good information, good cheesy humor. Fun times in the tasting room. Worth a trip for sure.

Definitely worth a visit. Decent tour, but itís not the main facilities. They use this more as a testing facility for new releases -- and guess what? They are going to test it on you. Expect to try some Sam Adams variety youíve probably never had before. They usually try it out here before deciding whether or not to release it.

Great tour, very informative. You get to taste the barley and they teach you the proper way to truely taste a beer.
You also get to try a beer that isnít on the market - and that may never make it onto the market.
