The Boston Brewery is where all of our beers get their start, with the exception of Boston Lager, which was born in our founder Jim Koch's kitchen.
It is the smallest of our three breweries (the others are in Cincinnati, OH and Lehigh Valley, PA - please note these two breweries are not open for public tours/tastings) but it is the most important. The Boston Brewery is akin to a test kitchen – it’s where we try out new ingredients, and brew specialty beers that are available only in the Boston area or in our Brewery tasting rooms. When you visit us for a tour or enjoy a pint or flight in our Beer Garden, you may have the opportunity to try a beer that you’ll never get to try again or maybe one that you’ll be able to pick up in a six-pack a year down the road. We’re constantly innovating and pushing the boundaries of brewing to make sure that from the ingredients to the glass, every pint of Samuel Adams beer is as good (if not better) than the last.
We opened our Boston Brewery in 1988, and ever since it has been our research and development hub. If you’re in Boston, take a tour and sample some exclusive beers.
