Boston Beer Company owner Jim Koch had been looking for a spot in the city for years. Previously, the brewery had a small room at its Jamaica Plain brewery where it served its brews, including Sam Adams beer.
The brewery has been met with criticism, however. Earlier this summer, a group of nearby Boston bars and restaurants pulled Samuel Adams beers from their menu, claiming the presence of the Tap Room hurt their business.
