Grate tour guide, not enough beer samples
, Oct 2021
Tour guide was great very informative. Destinations were horrible. Like deserted bars nobody has heard of. Samuel adams brewery looked great only gave us 2 small samples and rushed right out. Why didn't we try a few?. Food was mediocre.
Super Tour

This was a great tour. Travis, our beer guide, is exceedingly knowledgeable about beer. His jokes aren’t too bad either! This tour was a birthday gift for my husband so I went along to keep him company. He enjoyed it very much. I even liked the tour & I hate beer!
