Thanks to Jen and Bruce for squeezing us in on the Lakeview tour this weekend. Coming from Boston, we wanted to make sure our 21 and 24 year olds had a great St. Patrick's Day to remember and Jen did just that! The beer selections were good, the stories were fun, the group was friendly and Jen kept everyone happy,... More

This was SOOOO much fun and Jen was the absolute BEST tour guide ever!!! She was amazingly knowledgeable on a number of different beers, classifications of beers, beer making, Chicago history, etc. I enjoyed her bubbly personality and kindness towards everyone. The beer selection gave a great variety of Chicago's best beer, and I would do it again in a... More

My wife and i did this tour while taking in the Bear/Cowboys game. It was a lot of fun and informative. We had so much fun we got lost walking home and took a wrong turn which ended up OK because we weren't ready to go back to the hotel anyway. I would strongly recommend if you are looking to... More

With a weekend to entertain myself in Chicago, I stumbled upon this walking tour in the Tripadvisor activities list - the question though, is was it worth paying for someone to show me round a few bars when I could simply find a bar on my own and save money! The answer is an unequivocal YES. The host (apologies I... More

My wife and I took this tour and it was great. I am so glad we did this tour while in Chicago. It showed us places and taught us history about the city and we learned a ton about beer all at the same time. It is a must regardless if you love beer or not.

A friend and I took this beer tour today and we had a great time. I am kind of a beer geek and I assumed that the experience would be just Ok. I was very wrong! Our presenter Jen was outstanding. I am sort of a beer snob/ geek and I expected this to be a rather light weight event,... More

Jen was our tour guide yesterday. She is a wonderful hostess who knows her beers. We went to 4 different places on the Bucktown tour. We had 10 different high quality, crafted beers. We learned a lot about beer production and history. If you care about beer this is a great tour for you.

Ryan was extremely knowledgeable and made it a great tour, not too mention the outstanding bacon we tasted as well. He even had a great recommendation on restaurant that we visited the next... More

This was a great tour, Jen was super knowledgeable and the beer was terrific. This was an unusual but fun Management Retreat. Even those that weren't beer fans enjoyed it.

On a recent visit to Chicago, my newly 21 year old daughter and I took the beer tour. It was fantastic! Not only did we learn interesting history about the city and beer, we also got to share the remarkable pairing of Alpha King and bacon. Jen was a wonderful tour guide. She made the whole group feel at ease... More
