In our opinion there is no better experience than the one you get here at the Samuel Adams Brewery in Boston, MA.

You’ll learn all about the history of the Samuel Adams brand, experience the entire craft brewing process, taste the specialty malts and smell the Hallertau hops used to brew Samuel Adams Boston Lager, and, of course, sample a few of our award winning beers.

Tours depart approximately every 40 minutes and last about one hour. To avoid long waits, we recommend you arrive as early in the tour day as possible. Saturdays are especially busy. Please note: we do not take reservations - tickets are handed out on a first come, first serve basis.

Our Brewery tour is free, and we ask for a suggested $2.00 donation, which benefits local charities as well as our signature philanthropic program, Brewing the American Dream. For general information, call (617) 368-5080, or to speak with a Brewery Ambassador please call 617-368-5213.

Only guests 21 and older with a valid ID will be able to sample on the tour. For those who are not from the United States or Canada, you must have a passport or copy of the passport ID.
