"Great day w City Brew Tours"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 24, 2019 NEW
Got together w 6 buddies, fun way to spend a day. So many great breweries around these days, hard to keep up. Did original tour w Aaron who was great, v laid back, friendly, knowledgeable and good driver. Hit 3 breweries plus lunch. Sam Adams Brewery which was fine, but certainly more corporate, good lunch at Chelsea Station w a beer flight, then two v cool low key and more under radar places, Somerville brewery and Bear Moose in Everett which was pretty new and a little off the beaten path. Last two were breweries were best part of day but it was all good. Again a shout-out to Aaron for a fun day. If I was choosing, personally would have left Sam Adams off and added another more low key place as we are all local and had been there before, but again, was a great experience all in and would do again for sure. All the beer was solid.

"The Beer was not that good"

Dan did a great job in touring and he certainly has a lot of knowledge when it comes to beers , but the breweries we were taken to were not that good. Two out of four had decent beer. The food was also not good mac&cheese, very spicy chicken wings they should of at least asked us if we like spiced food, we paid for it. Not worth the 100 USD.

"Very bad support"

They’ve canceled the tour the day before (due to no min level of people, which may happen), but they didn't provide alternative option and they didn’t reply to all my next requests. It seems they don’t want additional customers.

"Great, sociable fun!"

Took the “Original Brew Tour” with Aaron on 8/24. I was travelling solo in Boston but immediately felt at ease. The group was very sociable and Aaron used his history of beer knowledge to great effect - and of course, that added touch of humour! I’d definitely do one of these again - far better than I had expected!
