Ever want to explore an Italianate Victorian mansion? Ready to uncover a new side of Boston? It's a known secret that Jamaica Plain -- or "JP" to the locals -- has some of the tastiest and freshest food in Boston, but it's a bit hidden from the "beaten path" destinations such as nearby Fenway Park. In fact, some JP residents want to keep it that way, and this tight-knit community is definitely keen on preserving the neighborly feel. Originally part of Roxbury, Jamaica Plain was first home to wealthy and middle class residents who wanted to summer or live outside of the city where they worked. Later on, JP has become very well known for America's First Craft Beer, Sam Adams, which is still brewed here today. On this exciting tour, our local guides will share the most delicious food on Centre Street while learning about JP from its connection to Moxie to famous residents. We will sample a variety of local, independent concepts often owned by JP residents themselves.
This food tours run approximately 2 hours, with 5-6 stops and includes all tastings. After the tour, there is an optional extension to hear stories about historical JP breweries and visit a nearby micro-craft brewery with our guide (a 15 minute walk) that's already yielded quite a following.
$55/pp includes all food tastings + City of Boston tax
Optional: $15/pp additional fee for brewery visit afterwards
