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 could probably do either, 2 might be a bit better. Let me know what they say!

Comment by bobweiser on November 18, 2021 at 12:08pm

great! but now i'm unclear when they're opening. the first link says 12 p.m., but usually they don't open until 2. i just emailed them, let's see if they get back to me. 1 if they open early, 2 otherwise? what would be good for you?

North America’s largest and most prestigious barrel-aged beer festival and competition is BACK! The 19th annual Festival of Barrel-Aged Beer returns to Chicago November 12th and 13th.

I could make it November 12th, anybody else?
