In our opinion there is no better experience than the one you get here at the Samuel Adams® Brewery. You’ll learn all about Samuel Adams, American brewer and patriot, experience the entire craft brewing process, taste the special malts and smell the Hallertau hops used to brew Samuel Adams®, and, of course, sample a few of our award winning beers.
