If you find yourself with a few hours to kill and only a couple of bucks, make your way over to the Sam Adam's Brewery located off the Stony Brook T-stop on the Orange Line. For a suggested donation of $2, you get a quick tour of the brewery (the Boston brewery brews beer only for kegs for Boston bars, beer shows, and the tour tastings) a free glass, and a tasting of three beers: Sam Adams Lager, a seasonal beer, and an experimental beer that probably won't ever see the shelf. While the friendly and funny tour guide goes through the beer-making process rather quickly the tasting is a lot of fun and by the end the whole room is chatting up a storm. Go early, since they "sell" out quickly. Doors open at 10am and tours are 45 minutes. Last tour leaves at 3pm.
