    Such a fun experience. The tour is free but they do ask to kindly leave a $2 donation. You get 3 different tasting in a 6oz glass. Staff is very energetic and knowledgeable.

    The tour was great- it was a two parter,a brief brewery tour and then a guided tasting portion. I enjoyed the last portion the best, it was awesome to have an introduction into tasting beer.

    The originator of the craft beer game, Samuel Adams Brewery's tasting room in a must see spot. Enjoy a few cold pints while playing a game of shuffleboard in the Jamaica Plain location.

    Tour guides are hilarious and smart. You get to nibble on what's used to make beer, 3 free 7 oz tastings at the end and you keep the glass. Gift shop has some awesome gear as well.

    I always enjoy visiting the Samuel Adams Brewery with its informative tour. After the tour, sampling the beer is the best part but going to the restaurant afterwards is not enjoyable.

    You'll definitely want to take a tour of this famous brewery! Taste-test beers along the way. My favorite is the Octoberfest beer, but it can only be found in the fall months. Enjoy!

    Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Really interesting tour. Love how the "profit" (it's donation only, no actual fee) from the tours goes to local charities!

    One of the best brewery tours I've been on. Very educational. Novice craft beer adventurers would greatly benefit from this tour to learn about beer and tasting it.

    Nothin beats free beer. Protip: sit at the ends of the long tables. People pour and pass the pitchers down. So if you sit at the end you get the remainder of the pitcher to yourself.

    Brewery tour was minimal which was good because I don't have the attention span for the technical aspect of brewing but the tasting at the end was really fun, the guide was hilarious

    Don't miss the free beer and free tasting glass! Be nice and leave tips if you enjoy the tour. And more important, do get a ride with the (free) trolley to Doyle's, it's so much fun!!

    It's worth seeing, but you only get to try a few beers on-site. There's a party bus after the tour however that will take you to a local bar, so you can keep the Sam Adams flowing.

    Find all Sam Adams tastes! Also, small snacks served (eg guacamole). Only negative is seating - make sure to call in advance and book otherwise long wait times...

    Good, fun, informative tour. Keep your token and head to Doyles afterwards (via free trolley or 10 min walk) for a free Sam Adams glass.

    Love the summer ale, but don't let an underage drinker shut down your favorite brewery. Try cell phone spy today to monitor a teen's mobile phone. Read more

    You get to sample 2 beers while on the tour, but they offer other side events as well (like taste testing new drinks or voting on a beer for their sampler pack) - don't miss out!

    Don't expect to find rare beers here. Free brewery tour, quite informative for beginners, but only 4 beers on tap.

    Fun tour, but I'd personally recommend going to Harpoon if you want a better beer tasting experience. The brainchild of Jim Koch, basically brought craft beer nationwide to America.
