    I always enjoy visiting the Samuel Adams Brewery with its informative tour. After the tour, sampling the beer is the best part but going to the restaurant afterwards is not enjoyable.

    Nothin beats free beer. Protip: sit at the ends of the long tables. People pour and pass the pitchers down. So if you sit at the end you get the remainder of the pitcher to yourself.
