Samuel Adams is expected to launch its first taproom in downtown Boston next summer, company officials said.

The Boston Beer Company is hoping the space will open to the public at 60 State St., the former location of the Hillstone restaurant, according to a company spokeswoman. This new location would be “just steps from the Old State House, Government Center, and Faneuil Hall,” Boston Beer announced in a statement Friday.

“We’re hoping to bring new and experimental beers, as well as some of the flagship beers we sell nationwide,” spokeswoman Meaghan Quinn said in a phone interview. “Our brewers are always innovating and trying new styles.”

The company said it is still in the negotiations, so the downtown opening date and address are still tentative, and contingent on completion of construction and permitting.

The new taproom will be modeled after the current Samuel Adams brewery in Jamaica Plain.

“They come up with some great styles at the JP brewery,” Quinn said. “But in 2019, I’m sure they’ll have a whole new slew to bring to drinkers.”
