Are you ready for the most unique tour you've ever seen in Boston?? Clear your taste buds for this beer and chocolate tour through Beacon Hill. You will leave with some fun beer and chocolate facts and a combination of flavors that will blow your socks off.
We'll start at Beacon Hill Chocolates on the beautiful Charles Street with some milk and dark chocolate samples to kick off the fun. This shop not only sells perfectly handmade confections, but they have an assortment of gift items to browse through and even ice cream - can't go wrong there.
Next stop is one of the coolest packies in the city, Charles Street Liquors. They offer a huge selection of Domestic Craft and Imported beers. We'll swing in here for some samples and fun beer facts and know-how for you to take home and show off to your friends.
A few doors down is The Sevens - a true blue Boston dive with the most charm you'll find anywhere in the city. You'll get a feel for where the locals of this neighborhood go while enjoying a drink of your choice, but recommendations will be provided by your beer and chocolate expert of the afternoon.
After The Sevens, we'll head over to Boylston Street to Rattlesnake Bar. You'll enjoy the scenic views of the public gardens on the walk over, which are just as beautiful in dead of winter as in the blazing summer. Rattlesnake offers a selection of beers you won't find anywhere else in the city. I'll help you choose a fantastic brew to pair with some chocolate for an ultimate flavor combo.
From here, we'll take the short walk to the popular Newbury Street and check out two of the sleekest chocolate shops around, Hotel Chocolat and Teuscher. You'll get more delectable samples along the way.
Now it's time to head back to Boylston as we wrap up the tour. If you're feeling a little chilled at this point, now's the perfect time to enjoy a sample of hot cocoa from Max Brenner and browse their small gift store.
The tour will conclude at Bukowski Tavern, a popular small and cozy pub right off of Massachusetts Avenue. No doubt about it, you will leave this tour with a buzz from all the smooth, rich flavor pairings and scenic walks through an awesome part of the city.
