Sam's Town

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love Sam Adams beer. So getting to go to the brewery yesterday in Boston was quite exciting! My tour guides for the day, Ali and Vanessa, had told me that this was one of the best brewery tours and that we would get lots of beer at the end of it!

The tour is like one of any brewery and I enjoyed learning some fun facts about Sam Adams such as the use of Boston tap water in it's making. Yum! The room for the tastings was set up with long tables that we all sat at to learn more fun facts and try the beer! Yum! Boston Lager, Oktoberfest, and Brick Red were on tap for us and each one was delicious! We learned quickly to ignore the advice to only fill our tasting glass 3/4 of a way full and by the last beer, we kept a pitcher near us for fill ups as needed. Without having had lunch and already about 2+ beers in (we got one at Doyles before the tour), we were all feeling a little buzzed.This turned out to be a great start to our day that included several bars and lots of talking. It was a great day in Boston. I can't wait to go back!
