Get an in-depth analysis of up to 16 different beers on a guided beer-tasting tour of Boston. Enjoy a delectable lunch or dinner and beer pairing at Cambridge Brewing Company, Winter Hill Brewing, or another food-providing affiliate.

Whether you’re a light beer drinker or a connoisseur of the brew, this is the perfect introduction to Boston’s top breweries, cider houses, and distilleries. From pilsners to stouts, your beer guides will introduce you to award-winning beers of all styles.

Visit legendary brewers including the Samuel Adams Brewing Company, Winter Hill Brewing, Dorchester Brewing, Night Shift Brewing, Bearmoose Brewing, and so many more. Tours and destinations may vary. Check out the sample tour below:

Samuel Adams Brewing Company: 

Learn the history of the Samuel Adams brewery and who the brewer and patriot Samuel Adams was on an immersive look at the brewing process from start to finish. Taste the specialty malts used to brew Samuel Adams beers and smell the unforgettable aroma of their traditional

Hallertau hops.

Samuel Adams utilizes only artesian-imported hops and fresh malt, making all their beer delightfully refreshing.

Chelsea Station:

Chelsea Station is a restaurant and bar that opened in 2014, transforming an old firehouse into a dazzling hub of food and drink in the culturally rich neighborhood of Chelsea. Its dishes prove just as robust as its culture, with a modern-American menu offering enough choices to please even the pickiest of eaters.

So take a chair in their 115-seat dining room and prepare yourself for a treat, before washing it all down with a seasonal rotation of local brews, or one of the classic staples of Massachusetts’ finest craft beers. Whatever your tastes, there’s something for you at Chelsea Station.

Night Shift Brewing:

(weekdays)

  Go to a nocturnal nanobrewery and taproom in Everett at Night Shift Brewing, known for its avant-garde brewing style and unusual ingredients. Habanero pepper and agave nectar in “Viva Habanera” and rosemary and pink peppercorn in “Rose” sound more like something you’d find in a 5-star kitchen than a beer bottle.

Downeast Cider House:

  From its humble beginnings in the basement of a Bates College dormitory, Downeast Cider House is the result of hundreds of test batches aimed at crafting the best hard cider you’ve ever tasted. Original Blend is made from freshly pressed local apples, because the guys at Downeast Cider not only believe in high-quality produce, they believe in America.

Lots of great information along with some good beer!

Tour guide really knew a lot and we got a great history of beer. The tour was good. We went to Sam Adams and this was a really interesting tour (but we did get the same as everyone else (big crowd) with the addition of one extra taste of beer. We also went to 3 other places all interesting and with a good variety of beer --though the tasting sizes (going back to the extra taste at Sam Adams) were a little slim. We did have a good meal, which was served with a beer sample paddle.
