New England is really a craft beer lover's paradise.  Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Vermont are home to some of the best breweries in the United States.  It seems that nearly every town, no matter how small, has their own exceptional brewery.

Of course, without a doubt, the king of them all is Sam Adams.  Established in the early 1980s, Sam Adams is basically the granddaddy of the craft brew revolution.  In addition to the eight beers they make year round, they also offer over a dozen seasonal beers.

If you consider yourself a beer lover (especially if you love craft brews), a tour of the iconic beer brand's Boston brewery needs to be on your bucket list.

So, because you've taken brewery tours before, you're not that excited about touring the Sam Adams brewery?  You need to get excited, because a tour of the Sam Adams brewery is not just another brewery tour.  In addition to offering a basic tour, they have a bunch of unique brewery experiences.

Yes, they have a basic tour.  It takes about 45 minutes and costs $10.

If you want to more in-depth tour and a chance to sample some Sam Adams brews, you can take the Beyond the Brewhouse Experience.  It only costs $25 and takes about 45 minutes.

They also offer several tasting options where they pair beers with food.  In addition to the ongoing experiences, they sometimes schedule specialty events.  They also allow you to book private tours.  What a cool idea for a company outing out a couple's weekend.

Get the details about all of these experiences at the Sam Adams website.

You'll find the Sam Adams Brewery at 30 Germania Street in Boston, Massachusetts.
