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.

Sure, why not, Garth? We definitely don't have to meet in Downtown.

Comment by globalguy on January 24, 2013 at 2:44pm

It's about the same distance from the OP - so if there are any Outatowners who are game, we could meet out here and ride our own way down to meet the Chi folks there?

I think, Louis, Deet meant to say Saturday the 9th of February 2013.

Comment by JustWill on January 24, 2013 at 2:22pm

As in Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014???

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on January 24, 2013 at 1:24pm

That would be great.

Comment by Deet 4.5mi on January 24, 2013 at 1:05pm

How about we plan it for Saterday the 8th.

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on January 24, 2013 at 12:47pm

OK, that settles it. Oh, well. As Russians say, первый блин комом (I'll leave it to you to translate this ;)

Comment by Deet 4.5mi on January 24, 2013 at 10:33am

i just called and they are not open until Feb 7th and they  were not willing to have people come thru until then. Anybody have another idea, being that we will have some snow down on the ground it might be better to keep it local. Thoughts?

Route: something like this, the starting point could be different, of course.

Here's their phone no.: 773 779 2739

More info here (their website is still under construction).

Thank you, Deet :)

Comment by Deet 4.5mi on January 24, 2013 at 8:45am

i can give them a call and confirm. Do you have a route in mind?
