Sam Adams Brewery Tour…

October 20, 2009

Right after landing in Boston on Friday we headed straight over to the Sam Adams Brewery tour.

The outside of the brewery is actually very normal looking. Not a lot of parking or big signs, kinda hard to find… but very cool.

The tour started off in a side room where we learned about all the ingredients in beer and the general process that it takes to make beer.

  • Water (90%)
  • Hops
  • Malted Barley
  • Yeast

We got to taste hops and barley and smell them which wasn’t particularly good but it was pretty cool. It was at this point in our tour (aka the very beginning) that we realized we had a group of about 4 super drunk people on the tour with us.  They were so irritating and loud but our tour guide was the best and went with it, started to make fun of them and ask them questions. He was really good at his job, but I guess when your job is to show people how beer is made and then drink it all afternoon a lot of people would be funnier and in a better mood :)

The tour and tasting are both free, but they don’t take reservations so it does get pretty crowded. I think we lucked out getting in right away. Very cool thing to do next time you are in Boston.

    You neglected to mention that you hate beer, and that you actually found a beer that you marginally liked on the tour.

      Ok thank you: I liked the Sam Adams Oktoberfest a lot and the next day I really liked a cider ale.
