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.
