This was a great afternoon to check out a few neighbourhoods and drink some beer. We did the Wicker Park/Bucktown beer tour and it was great. Our guide had great insight and knowledge not only about the beers about the different history of Chicago. We saw four great different pubs that you would never see just walking around Chicago.

Very informative tour with Phil! 14 beer tastings in all and each was very good (except for maybe the very first one). Loved the bacon pairings with the 3 beers at Paddy Long's.

We were staying in a B&B in Bucktown, so thought this Beer Tour would give a chance to learn some history about the area. This tour was a blast. Our guide Glenn Schneider was the best. Very knowledgeable about the area and the beers. The tour was from 3:30 - 6:30, however we were having so much fun it lasted... More

We did the Lincoln Park tour on Saturday July 12, 2015. We were in from out of town and my 2 adult sons flew over to join us for the weekend. We were thrilled with all the Bars and information offered on our tour. Phil was very informative and entertaining. We all had a great time. Thank You

My boyfriend and I went on the Lakeview/Lincoln Park tour on 4th of July weekend and had an amazing time. Our tour guide, Natalie, was awesome (also super forgiving of the fact that we accidentally showed up late) and made a point of talking to everyone on the tour. We stopped at 5 awesome bars and ended up having 15... More

I had purchased a Groupon for the Lakeview/Lincoln Park beer tour. We were a group of 18 with Bruce (the owner) conducting this tour. He was wonderful! Can't say anything bad about him or the tour. He spoke in a very loud voice, which our old ears very much appreciated. He was extremely enthusiastic, you could tell he was really... More

What a great way to spend an afternoon. Glen our guide was a hoot and a half. We had a ton of fun. It rained during our tour, but who cares! We had beer and great stories. Definitely a great time.

We went to 5 stops in the lakewiew, I think, neighborhood and tried all kinds of different styles of beer. They were all fun places to visit. When you visit Chicago you are usually doing an attraction downtown, which are cool, but been there, done that. It was cool to get out of the loop and into a suburb. My... More

We did a tour with glen. It was fantastic, he was knowledgeable and fun. We would recommend this to anyone - we received knowledge on the history of Chicago and the breweries. We got to know the people on the tour as well and everyone was very fun. Highly recommended and excellent time.
