Samuel Adams Opens New Tap Room and Experimental Cellar at JP Brewery

The Sam Adams Brewery just got even better with the opening of a new Brewery Tap Room and a “Bier Keller” for barrel-aging experimental beers. The new section opened Nov. 10, and expands Sam Adams' footprint in the historic Haffenreffer Brewery, originally built in 1871, which had its chimney topped off this past year with the letters "Haf" added to complete the spelling of Haffenreffer. Drinkers can now visit the new tap room to enjoy tapped pours from rotating experimental beers from the brewery like the new recipe for the Samuel Adams New England IPA. Fan favorites like the Boston Lager and seasonal brews are also available.
