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.

I am very upset with the tour I took June 14th. I am very upset with the tour guide and the tour description. The tour guide did not pay for his tab at the last bar. We had two tour guides names Andy and Eddie, their tab was $14.50. The tour description said free shot and there was never a... More

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.

This was a fantastic tour! My friend and I took the Wicker Park/Bucktown tour with Glenn and he could not have been a better guide. He knew about all the different craft beers we were drinking (including info about the brewery they came from), he tied in a history of Chicago and the neighborhoods we walked through. There were a... More

We loved the Bucktown/Wicker Park tour. Glenn, our guide, was the perfect guy to take a walk off the beaten path and enjoy a few beers with. the beers and bars were perfectly selected to accent Glenn's knowledge of the area, it's history and the beers. He reminded me of the people we hang out with at home, and that... More

One of the problems with Chicago is how easy it is to get stuck at the usual tourist attractions. This was a great way to get into some neighborhoods and get some real local history (we did the Bucktown and Wicker Park tours). Glenn was delightful - not experienced, but didn't try to blow smoke - if there was something... More

We had a great time today with Glen, our tour guide. He was knowledgable about the history of beer worldwide and in Chicago. We sampled about 12 beers and then had an additional pint at the fourth/last bar. The tour took 3.5 hours. I highly recommend the tour whether you just want to hang out in the neighborhood or if...

I arranged a private beer tour for 6 of us while visiting Chicago. Glenn was our guide and he was so fun and so knowledgeable about the places we visited. He kept us engaged and laughing the whole time! We kept the poor guy a little late because we were having so much fun, but he was a great sport... More
