We took the beer tour this weekend and had a blast! Our tour guide Phil was very knowledgable and made some on the spot adjustments when the preselected beers were not available. The substitutes did just fine. We had a great time getting to know other people from the group and were disappointed when our 3 hour tour was over.... More

We went on the lakeview beer tour this past weekend and it was a great time! It was a great opportunity to experience a section of the city and some new beer. We especially liked the bacon & beer pairings. That was really unique and delicious. We also enjoyed the group setting. We got to know some of the other... More

Our tour guide, Natalie, was fantastic! She did a great job of sharing information, moving us along, and letting us socialize too. The Octoberfest beer at the last stop was delicious! After the tour we headed to Atlas for dinner and my short rib burger with sweet potato fries was quite tasty.

We recommend this tour as fun for all ages (above 21 of course). Our group ranged from seniors to 20 somethings and we all had a great afternoon. Our guide, Chris, kept us entertained with beer facts interspersed with tidbits of local lure while we sampled numerous brews. The bars were diverse and the walks between them gave us a... More

Just went on the beer tour with two friends, and we all had a great time (even the one that isn't a beer lover)! Phil was very knowledgeable on the different beer, making beer, fun facts about the history of Chicago and beer and of course the notorious Al Capone. He was also a pro at the punny jokes! Long...

Our group had a great time on the tour of Lakeview and Lincoln Park. Our tour guide, Natalie was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure everyone on the tour was having a great time. Tons of beers to sample and some light tastings made for a great time and we were all actually sad when it was over (after 3 hours!)... More

I surprised my husband with tickets to the Lakeview & Lincoln Park beer tour during our trip to Chicago as he is a beer enthusiast and he absolutely loved it and I don't even drink beer and thought it was an excellent way to spend a portion of our vacation! Nathalie was our fantastic and knowledgable tour guide and provided... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour and the tastings. Our tour guide Phil did a great job of telling interesting stories about the beers, the companies and also the establishments we visited. Would highly recommend to anyone that enjoys beer and a little Chicago history along the way. If Phil is your tour guide, you must demand he... More

We recently went on the Lakeview/Lincoln Park beer tour. We had an amazing time!!! We had two guides (Lauren and Phil) because Lauren was in training. She did a great job at leading the tour and Phil did a excellent job at adding additional details along the way! The beer tastings were awesome. There was a wide variety of beers... More
