Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours offer walkable beer tasting and bar...

Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours offer walkable beer tasting and bar tours in Chicago! We have two neighborhood tours; one in Lakeview & Lincoln Park, and the other in Bucktown & Wicker Park. You'll taste several craft beers, learn about Chicago history from 1833 to the present, and even eat some bacon or a Chicago hot dog! Tours are led by a trained guide, who will weave Chicago history and beer together in a fun, informative way while visiting four establishments, some of which have been around since the days of Prohibition. Perfect for men and women ages 21 to 121, individuals and groups, from bachelor parties to corporate outings, we've got something for everyone.

I was in town for work and traveling solo. I came in a few days early since it was my first time in Chicago and I wanted to check out the city. I figured a brew tour in a neighborhood outside of the downtown area would be a good way to see another part of the city and to socialize.... More

Our tour guide guide was very familiar with the area and was a wealth of information. The tour route was also a good way to get familiar with the Bucktown and WIcker... More

The Lincoln Park Beer and Bacon tour was a lot of fun. The beers chosen for us were varied, delicious, and seasonal. Lee was an informative, energetic guide who kept things interesting and entertaining. It didn't hurt that the weather was absolutely beautiful!

The tour involved 4 stops (Exchequer Pub, Berghoff's, Buddy Guy's Legends, Vice District Brewing Co.). We walked from one place to... More

This tour was very interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we were able to learn a lot about Chicago,visited some pretty cool bars, and got to see some of the famous architecture. The Exchequer was my favorite bar, and we had some excellent beers at every stop. This is a walking tour, so not the best idea if it... More
