Want to know what true love tastes like? Spoiler alert: it tastes a lot like a fresh, cold pint off the tap of Plymouth’s Mayflower Brewery. With your lover, of course. Or prospective lover.

Maybe you’re into the whole Brewery Tour idea, but you like a little more variety in your excursions. You and your date are the kind of people who buy neopolitan ice cream - order the appetizer sampler at TGI Fridays - carry trail mix around in a pouch. You guys think you can have it all, do you?
Well, in this case, you can. Get a taste of Boston’s finest breweries in a comprehensive, grab bag of a brewery tour, perfectly suited for your wishy-washy tendencies.

Be not afraid. Everything you mead is right here.

So be it. Put your money where your mouth is. Cultivate the skills to make beer of your own and soon, you won’t even have to leave the house anymore.
