Sam Adams Brewery

Visitors to Boston can take an informative tour of the Sam Adams Brewery, and get a look at the brewing process for the popular beer. Named for the Revolutionary War hero, the beer has been brewed in Boston since the 1980s. The tour showcases the entire process, and allows visitors to taste the special malts used. A free glass is included for visitors using the Go Boston Card. Tours depart roughly every 45 minutes and last about one hour. The brewery does not accept reservations, but they do recommend that visitors arrive fairly early in the day to avoid long waits - especially on Saturdays. All donations benefit local charities.
