Might be doable, but isn't it a lot of running all over to things that aren't particularly near each other?
That's why I asked

If I were you, I would skip the brewery. I haven't been there, so can't say how great, but it's geographically separated.
You easily do duck tour, USS Constitution (which I love), lunch at Milk Street.
There may be a downtown, say 1:30PM, mincha minyan, but I'm not sure. If you want, I can inquire. Henche probably knows.

So maybe do those three earlier, and then hop over to the brewery and go straight to the airport from there ?

Although if it turns out he has to go to Brookline for mincha (I davened at 2 at Israel Book Shop and ate at Elite one of the days I was there - that can be a time saver), the brewery becomes not so out of the way.

There's a downtown mincha, but I don't have details. Not near my office.

I agree. All depends on timing of course, but lunch and Mincha at the book store position you better for Sam Adams.  There are at least 6 lunch options within 5-10 minute walk of Israel Book Store, in order of proximity:
Eilat (C'Y, IINM)
Taam China
Kupels (just bagels and shmears)
Rubin's
Pure Cold Press
Rami's
JP Licks (ice cream and cake)
Jerusalem Pita and Grill

I recommend milk st for lunch. Get hot pastrami on ciabbata. With avacado, onions, chipotle sauce, and cole slaw.

Best? Lucky if there is one.

I believe kupels has CY cream cheese if you ask for it.

If you end up going there make sure to get "frozen dough".

If I am not mistaken, Café a lot is C-y. That is close to young Israel Brookline.

Booked for a day trip with the family :)

Meat sandwiches at Milk St for lunch, ducky tour for fun, and Taam China for dinner? Any other activity for a 2+5 year old?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
