Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society


Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society

Every member of the Society (CBES) should aspire to have a beer at every brewery or brewpub located in a day or two bicycle ride distance from Chicago (and, of course, within the city limits).

Naturally, preferable way of getting to is by bike, as for riding back . . . whatever is available, train, bus, horse and buggy, depending on amount of beverages consumed at the destination.

Routes on Ride with GPS, here.

On Facebook, here.

On Twitter, here.

Lists of breweries and brewpubs (and other beer things): on Facebook, and on Twitter.

I will be biking up to the Chicago Botanic Garden tomorrow with a couple friends in case your route happens to find you around Ravinia, Kings and Convicts, Lake Bluff, etc. (or the Macushla/Ten Ninety or Evanstonian breweries on the way back...)
