    Free tour, free beer tasting glass, and free delicious brews. Fun fact: bet you didn't know this isn't Sam Adams' main production plant - it's an R&D facility designed for cooking up new flavors.

    When the tour guide tells you to rub the hops between your hands, don't do it unless you want sticky hands for the rest of the tour.

    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.
