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 group joined 4 couples and the first thing that struck me was how everyone was into having fun and drinking beer. It was a really fun group, which... More

Emma was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and enthusiastic and all the places we visited were all quite different and interesting in their own way. Lots of good beers to sample and short walks between the... More

We signed up for this Lincoln Park/Lakeview beer tour as part of our work squad activity--and boy am I glad we did! I learned things about Chicago that I never knew--and I was born and raised in Chicago! The beers were fantastic, found some new haunts I'd like to go back to (Paddy Long's!) and Lee was a terrific host.... More

We took the Lakeview/Lincoln Park tour. Our guide Lee was FANTASTIC!! This tour rocks! We had some terrific beer at some interesting and fun local taverns. Lee was a knowledgeable, personable and funny tour guide. Learned a lot about the history of Chicago, beer, prohibition and beer making. FIVE STARS! Highly recommended!

My spouse and I did the Wicker Park/Buckhead beer tasting tour. So much fun! It ended up being the best part of our weekend. Small group, so easy to maneuver around. Anna, our guide, was friendly, informative, professional, and enthusiastic about her city. She was able to engage everyone on the tour and keep an appropriate pace. I liked the... More
