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.

Mother Nature is screwing with us.

Wow! By Ms. Heavyfoot herself?

That was short-lived. I was told to get off the lakefront--which was packed.

Lakefront Trail from Monroe down to 18th was full of people, as was Northerly Island and the 606. At some level I can't blame Lightfoot for the decision but people are desperate for fresh air and some degree of normalcy.

You people are having fun. Some quarantine...

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on March 25, 2020 at 5:54pm

Was planning to do just that after I complete today's work.

I just returned from a ride.  All the soccer fields at River Park are occupied with teams playing soccer.

Comment by Alina M on March 25, 2020 at 5:47pm

Lightfoot may close the parks and lakefront.

Looks like I'm going for a ride :P

Preliminary list of local operations which might be worth biking too.

Was no riding or even walking for me this evening: just finished working...
