Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society

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.

Up-to-date map (with a list, postal- and web-addresses and phone numbers, where available). Five hundred thirty (530!) so far.

Looks like, but I'm not sure.

And OO is a bit too far for the weather, riding or walking.

good riddance 2020!

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on December 31, 2020 at 11:37pm

I emailed them (the only way to make a reservation). Frankly, I don't expect any answer, given it's a bit late, but...

There are those cool-looking igloos at Barcocina (on Sheffield and George). Parties up to 6.

or, alternative ideas?

Comment by bobweiser on December 31, 2020 at 10:13pm

the goddess of discord texted me: "due to weather, we cannot open the patio friday. please consider pickup instead" :-(

pickup there and take to somewhere else?

Dry this year, wet in 2021.

As I said, I'll be there, icy or not, but will probably walk, as 100% chance of precipitation is in the forecast.

OK.  I think I will go straight to Eris also. Unless I'm hungover.  Or over sleep. Or chicken out because of rain.  Or.......

Will caffeinate at home.
