Got there via the subway and walked a few block till i found the place. Paid the $2 donation and proceded on the tour. The tour was extremly short but they only produce the beer for Boston itself at this place. After the tour you go into the tasting room for 30 minutes and have as much as you can sample. The best thing about going here was the had Old Fezziwig on tap as much as you could drink in the half hour. Oh yea they let you keep your own glass. Worth the time getting here.

Tour was a $2 donation, which isn’t bad considering you get to keep your tasting glass. The tour itself was fine. The tasting was a little disappointing, as you only got to try two beers, one being Samuel Adams Boston Lager. The other I had was their Octoberfest. Both beers are very good, but I was hoping for more options.

Got there at noon, when the website said the tours started - stood around for a while with some other people and was eventually told the tours wouldn’t start until one - got lunch at quaint local place - came back - tour did not start until 1:45 - - stood around in a room for 45 minutes - no tasting room or bar area to hang out in while you wait for a tour (you pretty much stand around with your thumb up your butt - some hospitality) tour guide showed us the brewery (one room) and explained how beer was made (which, of course, I already knew) - tour guide brought us into tasting room and treated us like crap while we tasted fairly standard SA products (although they do taste much better fresh at the brewery) - got to try an experimental beer (a helles which one person in attendance said tasted like it had been in the trunk of his camaro for three weeks - he kind of nailed it) - overall really lame - I expected more from such a well-known brewery.

There wasn’t even supposed to be a tour because of a commercial being filmed. Somebody saw us standing outside and brought us through for a shortened tour anyway. Nice place and a nice simple tour with just enough details so even my wife didn’t get bored. Got to sample plenty and keep the glasses. They even let us sample the Utopias as an apology for shortening the tour. As a final touch we now get a Christmas card from them every year.

visited last year in October - not much to add here but nice short tour - really enjoyed the fresh tasting - believe it or not not many people sampled that much and we had a ton extra of each pitcher - they supposedly were using us as a target taste audience as they were thinking about introducing a smoked beer or adding back a retired beer (cant remember which one). Much tastier there then when bought at home.

Went with Stegosaurus on this tour. Definetly over crowded but I was in my glory when I sqw the hops right in my face. We got to sample a rare beer I believe was called Alchemist Ale. Was very educational.

Nice short tour. Not much to see but you get to try any experimental beer at the end (I got to try an altbeir) plus was given two free glasses. Easily accessible from the subway - wouldn’t try to drive there as parking is extremely limited in the area.

stegosaurus  (34) Levittown, Pennsylvania | September 11, 2006
This was a pretty cool tour, minus the fact that it was way over crowded. You walk in and all of their american beer fest awards hang on pennants in the rafters. Medals are displayed everywhere, and a 3 glass cases with every beer they ever made is on display. They run a video of how and why they make the beers they make, and some history of the family and area. They allow you to smell and taste the ingredients. then you go to a room and sample fresh beer on draft at the brewery. We hung out for a while and as the crowd left Andy (our guide) started to hook us up with more beer.

A fun tour that gives a detailed history of brewing in Boston as well as information about the brewing process. After the tour, I got to sample a few rarities that will probably never see the light of day outside the brewery walls.

Tour was boring for anyone that knows anything about brewing but quite interactive. You get a 7oz sam adams glass and 3 beers for free which is the best part. Tour guide seemed pretty knowledgeable. Weird location in the city and painful to find.
