Owner description: 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.

This was a great tour that last about 3.5 hours. Our tour guide Bruce was full of energy and the bars were different, but all great in their own way. I went with my boyfriend and bestfriend and we all stated it was our favorite part about our trip to Chicago. By the time the tour was over, we had met everyone (16 people in all) that was on the same tour, but what else could you expect after have 16 very generous samples of different beer. The historical aspect of the tour were also fun to learn and how the guide incorporated them with the different beers was unique. A must do if you have the time in Chicago.

Jen did a fantastic job leading our tour! We were a group of four couples in Chicago for a get-away weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the tour! Jen knew her beer - as well as the history of the bars we visited. Would definitely recommend this to any group who enjoys their beer!!

my tour was with 8 other people and our tour guide jen !! we had a blast, the bars were all a bit different,and unique in their own way... but it was jen and the people in our group that made this tour so much fun.. some beers were great some not so much but that is what is supposed to happen. and if you can't get the tour you must go to the bar Paddy Long's for the bacon !!!! trust me it is worth the trip !!!

The beer tour was a blast! A group of us went while having a bachelor party weekend. Our tour guide (Ryan) was knowledgable and hilarious, the bacon pairings at Paddy Longs blew my mind and it was just enough beer to get the evening started! I will recommend to anyone going to Chicago!

Very good tour! Easy access from the Red Line and good directions from guides. The staff was very knowledgable when it came to all different types of beers and ciders especially locally.

Will come back soon,
Thanks
