Overview
Discover the best of Boston’s hops and history on a 2-hour pub crawl. Offered at three separate times, you can easily find start at a time that fits with your schedule. Select the Happy Hour tour and enjoy four draught beers or ciders. Or choose the Dry Run option and purchase drinks as you please. Either way, visit some of the city’s top pubs with your guide, while passing iconic historical sites.
What to Expect
Begin your Independence Pub crawl at the statue of the man that helped spark a revolution: Sam Adams. In front of this Boston icon, you will meet your expert guide as well as fellow history loving beer drinkers from around the globe.
From there, the beer and history flow as your guide leads the group around the colonial market places of Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. You'll walk the cobblestoned streets to pubs that have been visited by Bostonians for hundreds of years. The four historic taverns visited on the tour provide a wonderful backdrop as your guide tells stories about Boston's rebellious past that helped lead to America's independence. Each tavern dates back at least to the 1800's, several even further which includes America's oldest tavern! At each tavern your guide will recommend beer as unique as the history of the city. Most of the beers are exclusively served in Boston and several can only be found in the taverns visited on the tour!

Paxton was really great and informative. I went by myself while my wife was attending a conference. The other people on the tour were also really fun and embracing. It was a fairly chilly day, so it was nice that the pubs were relatively close...More

I think you’d have to book together. Seemed like the tour group was limited to 12-15.
