I had intended to get involved in a bus brewery tour but was pleasantly surprised by this tour which probably exposes you to a broader variety of beers and has a more intimate feel with your own personal tour guide. Despite a certain level of hipster pretentiousness the guide was very knowledgeable and the other guests were very friendly and... More

Alittle bit of history blended with beer tasting at some cool bars. Good way to see the city, Neil was great and it was overall a nice way to spend an afternoon in the city. Would recommend.

Nice all around experience. They explained everything with each setting and made sure we knew where we were after the tour was over. Great time and would do it again. I have expressed to my friends that they should go and do this tour.

My partner works in a Brewery here in the UK, so naturally we booked a beer tour for the end of our 3 week American adventure! The meeting place was a relaxed Irish pub in the heart of Suburban Chicago, and easy to find. We were greeted by bubbly and friendly Emma who explained a little about what would be... More

I think we caught the tour on a day they sorta oversold it. And the pubs we stopped in did not have quite enough room for us. So it was a very tight squeeze and the pubs were noisy so hard to hear the history. Not as many interesting craft beers as I was expecting. This is basically a pub... More

While we do cap our tours around 18-20 people, sometimes the establishments we visit... More

My husband and I went along to the Lincoln Park tour on Saturday 12th Sept. Being big beer fans we were excited to see what the experience had to offer in terms of local produce and history, and we were not disappointed! Phil was an excellent guide, providing insight and humour the whole afternoon. The places we visited gave us... More

This tour was so much fun! We learned a lot from Phil. We were lucky enough to have only 5 people so it was really intimate. Even my non-beer drinking mom enjoyed it! I'd recommend it to anyone who visits!

Thank Meg H
