Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours offer walkable beer tasting and bar...

Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours offer walkable beer tasting and bar tours in Chicago! We have two neighborhood tours; one in Lakeview & Lincoln Park, and the other in Bucktown & Wicker Park. You'll taste several craft beers, learn about Chicago history from 1833 to the present, and even eat some bacon or a Chicago hot dog! Tours are led by a trained guide, who will weave Chicago history and beer together in a fun, informative way while visiting four establishments, some of which have been around since the days of Prohibition. Perfect for men and women ages 21 to 121, individuals and groups, from bachelor parties to corporate outings, we've got something for everyone.

Our guide, Glen, did a nice job of taking care of us and sharing his beer and Chicago knowledge with... More

I enjoyed this beer tour. Were the beers that unusual? No, but there was a nice selection leaning toward locally or midwest produced product. And the tour guide was friendly, funny, and provided some of the basics of how beer is made. I would recommend it.

Toured with Phil on Friday afternoon. Hit 4 bars and had several Chicago area craft beers. Only 5 in our group. Lots of Chicago history. A little architecture. Good beers, good conversations, good times.
