We loved the Bucktown/Wicker Park tour. Glenn, our guide, was the perfect guy to take a walk off the beaten path and enjoy a few beers with. the beers and bars were perfectly selected to accent Glenn's knowledge of the area, it's history and the beers. He reminded me of the people we hang out with at home, and that... More

One of the problems with Chicago is how easy it is to get stuck at the usual tourist attractions. This was a great way to get into some neighborhoods and get some real local history (we did the Bucktown and Wicker Park tours). Glenn was delightful - not experienced, but didn't try to blow smoke - if there was something... More

We had a great time today with Glen, our tour guide. He was knowledgable about the history of beer worldwide and in Chicago. We sampled about 12 beers and then had an additional pint at the fourth/last bar. The tour took 3.5 hours. I highly recommend the tour whether you just want to hang out in the neighborhood or if...

I arranged a private beer tour for 6 of us while visiting Chicago. Glenn was our guide and he was so fun and so knowledgeable about the places we visited. He kept us engaged and laughing the whole time! We kept the poor guy a little late because we were having so much fun, but he was a great sport... More

My wife and I took the Bucktown tour this last Friday afternoon. It was our first trip to Chicago and we wanted to do something in this part of town, as some friends of ours had said it was not to be missed. Unfortunately it was a 100% chance of rain for the exact window of the tour. So we... More

My wife and I did the Bucktown/Wicker Park tour on Saturday, May 2. We were not sure what to expect but were very pleased by the tour. Our guide, Neil, knew his stuff, and we were pleasantly surprised by the variety of beer - all from the midwest or Chiacgo area. It was a great chance to get a view... More

I found a deal on Living Social for this beer tour and after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to try it. I am glad I did! This was an awesome tour. Our guide was Phil who was full of info about the beers we sampled and Chicago history. The bars on the stop were fun. The samples were plenty!... More

We loved this tour! Beer samples were a good size and loved the atmosphere at each stop. The beer and bacon was a favorite.

During our tour, we learned a lot about beer and Chicago's history. We came from out of town and we visited taverns and pubs we wouldn't have known about without the tour. All of this and we tasted great beer with a fun guide!
