Run by 4 guys that love beer and love to talk about what Chicago has to offer, this is totally worth it for beer lovers. On my tour we got to visit the Goose Island production facility and sample beers that you can't even buy yet. Don't fight the traffic or stumble around, buy a ticket on the brew bus... More

I treated my husband to a Chicago Brew Bus experience for his birthday in June of 2012 (not June of 2014 as the TripAdvisor date indicates - 2012 wasn't an available option). At the first stop (Goose Island I think?), things started off a bit slow as we didn't really know what to expect and hadn't yet become acquainted with... More

This is a must do if you are in the Chicago area and love to drink beer! Not your standard uptight brewery tour, its pretty much a party on wheels. My only regret is going the last day I was in town because I would have definitely gone again!

A great way to spend an afternoon. You get to sample beer from several breweries, ride around on a fun bus, and listen to great commentary from Kevin along the way. If you like beer and want to have a great afternoon, let the Chicago Brew Bus drive you to drink!

This tour was well worth it. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the past, present, and future of micro-brew (craft beer). The included samples at each microbrewery were very good and ranged from light to dark. I'm sure everyone could find a new favorite. The coffee beer brew at Goose Island was my favorite. Door to door service to... More
