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.

2/16. I'm out of town this weekend. But would love to go the following weekend.

This Saturday, Feb. 9th, I am on-call at work, and then I'm volunteering at Winter Brew 2013.

thinking about putting together another winter beer ride. this sat. 2/9 or next sat. 2/16? would rides on both 2/9 and 2/10 be too much?

I'm creating the ride to the Horse Thief Hollow. Will be up as soon as it's approved by the authorities ;)

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on February 5, 2013 at 3:03pm

Horse Thief Hollow is opening this week for sure. "Grand opening" will be on Monday the 11th.

How about riding there this Sunday? To be at the brewery around noon?

Tonight, tonight. Wasn't that implicit? ;)

I'll be at the Half Acre tap room at 6 p.m. Wanna join me there?

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on January 31, 2013 at 11:25am

Right up our bike lane! :)

They list beers on tap now on their website. I'd like to try their Koelsch and pale ale.
