Information

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'm not in shape for 78 miles, I'm afraid...

You read my mind, Alina.

Perhaps, even farther north? I wasn't impressed with food at Macushla last time I was there. Though beer, of course, was good.

i'm in! it should be a nice fall day:

Sunshine. High 56F. Winds NNW at 5 to 10 mph.

and hopefully i'll be done getting flats.

Anyone interested in riding north tomorrow? Was thinking Macushla.
