Breweries to Visit During Your Boston Stay

Boston is known for many things — important historical events, charming architecture, and some of the nation’s best sports teams. Even then, there’s something else that makes Boston an iconic destination for your next trip, and that’s Boston’s incredible breweries. From makers of some of the world’s most well-known beers to local favorites, there’s something for every type of beer drinker. When you stay at The Boxer Boston, the opportunity to explore them all is right at your fingertips. Here are a few of the city’s best breweries to add to your Boston itinerary.

Dive Into Innovation at Samuel Adams

For any American beer connoisseur, the name Samuel Adams is instantly recognizable as a pioneer in the craft beer movement. Home of the original Sam Adams beer, The Samuel Adams Boston Brewery is a lively hub of experimentation, where guests are invited to discover the evolution of beer. This “innovation brewhouse” has a rotating menu of R&D beers alongside their classics. If you’re looking for a brewery closer to your stay at The Boxer, visit The Samuel Adams Downtown Boston Taproom.

Get a Taste of Europe at Harpoon Brewery

Harpoon Brewery’s story began with the vision to bring the rich beer culture found in Europe to the streets of Boston. Located in the Seaport District, Harpoon offers an array of iconic beers like the Winter Warmer and the Harpoon IPA. Enjoy a day of fresh beer, cider, and seltzer, as you soak in the energy of the waterfront. When planning your visit, be sure to take a look at their calendar of events, featuring plenty of social activities such as music bingo and pottery classes.

Try True Local Brews at Trillium Fort Point

If you’ve ever wondered about the environmental impact of your favorite beers, then you’ll enjoy a visit to Trillium Fort Point. Proudly offering a diverse range of brews, Trillium sources locally, supports communities, and emphasizes environmental responsibility. They have six exciting and unique locations throughout Boston, but both the Common and Greenway locations are only a quick, 20-minute walk from The Boxer, ensuring that good beer is always close by.

Level Up Your Sipping Experience at Night Shift Brewing

Originating as a homebrewing hobby, Night Shift Brewing has evolved into one of Boston’s most well-known breweries. With a focus on inclusivity, integrity, and innovation, you can find world-class beers at Night Shift Taproom.

For a bit of social entertainment, you can sip on Night Shift beer at Level99 in Natick, a 48,000-square-foot complex featuring challenge-based games, craft drinks, and elevated dining.
