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.

Подвійна версія нашого Dragon Milk з чипотле. А якщо ви не знали чи не пам'ятаєте, то чипотле - це такий висушений на диму гострий перець халапеньо. Посилили ми переважно міцність, тому спокійно, він все ще не випалює рецептори (ну, на наш смак, принаймні). І ситуативний дисклеймер: ні, алкоголь і перець не допомагають проти вірусів, але і не заважають цій боротьбі теж. Миємо руки і зберігаємо спокій.

OG 22,8% ABV 8,3% IBU 18
Смакує: зігріваюча перчинка і алкоголь, кавово-палені ноти

I'm off this Friday.

If anyone else also doesn't have to work that day and have nothing better to do, how about riding to Evil Horse? I haven't been there for three or four years now. With a stop for late breakfast/early lunch at 18th Street. Flossmoor and Metra back (or ride back).

I'll be leaving around 8:30. Lemme know if...
