Sam Adams to Open Taproom by Boston's Faneuil Hall

by Marc Hurwitz

It looks like a big name in the beer industry is going to be bringing a taproom to the heart of Boston.

Eater Boston confirms what a source told us earlier this week, that the Boston Beer Company (which is known for its Sam Adams beers) is planning to open a taproom at 60 State Street by Faneuil Hall, with our source saying that it would be opening in the former Hillstone/Houlihan's space. The post indicates that plans are in their early stages, as negotiations still need to be finalized and the permitting process then proceeding along with construction; if all goes well, the taproom could be opening sometime during the second half of 2019.

Currently, the Boston Beer Company has a brewery and taproom on 30 Germania Street in Jamaica Plain.
