Samuel Adams Brewery
There are plenty of reasons why people sh*t on Sam Adams, and we’re sympathetic to most of them: the most famous Boston brewery isn’t even really a Boston brewery (the vast majority of Sam Adams beer is brewed in either Pennsylvania or Ohio); its beer has mostly been left behind by smaller breweries who aren’t afraid to be more experimental; if you go to their “research and development” facility in JP, you’ll likely be the only person there who hasn’t been trying out their Boston accent on the Freedom Trail all weekend; and hell, the guy on the front of the bottle isn’t even Sam Adams (it’s Paul Revere). We get all that...but we also still love the original Boston Lager, and the outdoor space with picnic tables, greenery, and a bring-your-own-food policy is a perfectly fine place to spend an afternoon. There aren’t a lot of reasons to come here instead of Turtle Swamp down the street, but almost any brewery is a great place to be, and Sam Adams is no exception.
