We went on a thursday evening with Andy as a tour guide. He was very friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and provided a variety of beers for us to taste. It allowed most folks to expand out their normal beer choices. What i really enjoyed was the history of beer from when it was created to present day. Furthermore, how the brewing... More

The tour was definitely a fun unique thing to do while in Boston! We got to do the "inside/private" tour of the some of the places we visited, which made it really cool. My wife and i's favorite place was the Downeast Cider place, which had like 6-7 tastings and was super tasteful! Definitely nice to be driven around, rather... More

The tour was great from beginning to end. Mark was an awesome guide. Perfect man for our group. We really enjoyed his knowledge of beer and history. All the brewery stops were good, but Bantam Cider was my favorite. Will definitely be back!

Went on a private tour for my brothers bachelor party on Saturday. Everyone in the group agreed that it was easily one of the best times we've ever had. Obviously our attention was to tie a load on and get driven around from brewery to brewery, and maybe get a little of bit off brew knowledge. However 5 minutes into... More

Took the shorter tour, 3 stops, our guide "Andy" was awesome, funny, and knowledgeable. Tasted 4-5 beers at each brewery with time to enjoy your favourite before heading to the next stop. Even if you are not a craft beer fan, it is a fun way to see local beer business in Boston which is huge in the area. More... More

We really enjoyed the tour and the different beers that we got to try, especially since it took us out of the city and to places that we would not have gone on our own. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable about everything we tasted, as well as provided great information about Boston and the surrounding area. One of... More

I booked this tour for my husband's 30th birthday. We all had a great time and our tour guide was great and entertaining. Didn't like the mandatory pre- tipping of $10 per person for a group more than 4 to guarantee that the group will be on the same tour when only 1 van and 1 tour went out at... More

This tour was a great way to experience the city of Boston and see what various types of beer it has to offer. The tour guide was very informative and made the overall experience fun and enjoyable. Plus, who doesn't like to sample 15-18 beers in under 6 hours? Will definitely recommend this tour to friends!

All the different beers we got to try were great. Our guide was very personable and funny and knew lots of interesting Boston facts. The Meadhall is a fantastic lunch. Overall great tour and probably the best part of our Boston trip!

Staying in Beacon Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Beacon Hill
Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander through the hilly neighborhood and check out its exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking path. Make sure to meander down Charles street to poke into boutiques and antique shops, cafes, and restaurants on this quaint shopping street. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse up close of the State House with its beautiful and iconic dome.
