Meet your guide in the heart of the adjacent Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods, and set off on a 1-mile (1.6-km) walk to several beer establishments in the area. You’ll taste lagers and porters, many of which are Midwestern craft brews. In total, your beer tastings add up to the approximate equivalent of four beers.
Explore Beer Baron Row, inhabited by German beer barons during the late 1800s. Admire the fine architecture and hear anecdotes about Chicago’s immigration and brewery history. You’ll visit a 19th-century bar with an impressive beer list; pair your samplers with a quintessential Chicago-style hot dog, prepared by a family-owned restaurant in operation for more than half a century.
Pop into a bar you may recognize as 'Molly's' on the TV show Chicago Fire; visit a venue that combines craft beer with old-school video games; and check out an innovative space that features a butcher shop, restaurant and bar.
The 3-hour tour ends in Wicker Park, where you can continue to your evening in Chicago on your own.
