How to Get There
The brewery is located in Boston’s vibrant Jamaica Plain neighborhood. You can reach the brewery by cab or take Boston’s “T” subway system: Take an Orange Line train to Stony Brook station, which is about a 5-minute walk away. Driving isn’t recommended, even if you’re not planning to imbibe; the brewery only has a small parking lot, and street parking is very limited.
When to Get There
The brewery is open all year round except for on major public holidays. The tap room is open from late morning through the evening, which shortened hours on Sundays; tours run Monday–Saturday from mid-morning until late afternoon. The brewery is popular, especially in the summer, so you may need to wait for a tour.
Attractions in Jamaica Plain
Once you’re finished enjoying the offerings at the Samuel Adams Brewery, head west into the hipster-friendly heart of Jamaica Plain. The area’s main artery, Centre Street, is an easy 15-minute walk away and is dotted with restaurants and stores. Browse the quirky shops, and refuel at one of the tapas bars, bistros, and vegan cafes. You can also relax at Jamaica Pond, a leafy park with a large pond, waterside paths, and rowboats to rent.
