Founded by Jim Koch, Samuel Adams Brewery offers tours and tastings six days a week at their original location in Egleston Square. Every safe trip to the Samuel Adams Brewery requires a designated driver, but by renting a Boston charter bus with a private driver, your whole group can partake in the fun.
In 1984, brewery founder Jim Koch took an entrepreneurial risk to start what has since become one of America’s leading independent craft breweries. In many ways, Koch’s foresight and ingenuity sparked the craft beer revolution that has spread throughout the U.S. and the world. They’re still trying new recipes daily at the Samuel Adams brewery, so stopping in for a brewery tour is a great way to learn about the brewing process.
Brewery tours are available Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 3 pm. On Fridays, tours begin at 10 am and continue until 5:30 pm. On Saturdays, tours run from 10 am to 3 pm. Typically, a new tour will start about every 40 minutes. All tours are free, although they do request a $2 donation per person and all monies collected are then redistributed to one of several local charities. Tours are open to all ages, but guests must be 21 and present a valid ID in order to sample beer.
