We loved the tour from start to finish. Phil was great, very knowledgeable. We loved learning the history of the beers, visiting the various establishments and the walking tour itself. We've told all our friends that the next time they're in Chicago, they have to make sure and take the Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tour!

We visited five different places and had a couple of beers at each one. Our guide Phil was awesome and had a good and loud voice so everyone could hear well. He explained us the history and the way of serving some beers. We enjoyed it so much it didn't seem like three hours of visit. We could have taken... More

Glen was an amazing tour guide. He brought us around to 4 different bars and many places on the way. I learned a lot about the history of Chicago and had some great beers along the way.

I had 24 hours layover in Chicago and was wondering what would the best way to spend the day. As a beer enthusiast when I found about the Chicago Beer Experience that was a no-brainer to me. We visited 4 different bars and learned a lot about the history of Chicago as well. Our host Glen was awesome, he really... More

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
