Chicago Beer Tasting and Bar Tour

Discover the Best Brews in Chicago During One Of Two Pub Tours

5 stars rating 1 Reviews
participantsparticipants Price for 2 Participants

Explore one of Chicago’s tastiest neighborhoods during one of two three-hour beer tasting tours of the Windy City. You and your guest will discover where to find some of the best beer in town and learn a bit about the rich history of either Bucktown & Wicker Park or Lakeview & Lincoln Park.

This Chicagoland Beer Tour begins when you meet with your friendly and knowledgeable Guide in either Bucktown or Lakeview. From here your Guide will escort you to four venues where you’ll enjoy generous samples of ice cold beer at each location. Carefully selected for their contribution to Chicago culture, each venue will highlight not only mouth-watering brews, but also something unique in its own right – whether that be menu items, décor and entertainment, history or the best selection in town.

No matter which neighborhoods you choose to tour, you are in for a treat! So whether you are looking to learn more about the history of Chicago, where to find the best beer, or a unique gift for family and friends, this Chicago Beer Tasting Tour is the Ticket!

Suds for your Saturday 

5 stars

 Our Saturday was filled with an informative and tasty beer sampling for those interested in experiencing a variety of brews. Neil, our tour guide, was witty AND knowledgeable about the Bucktown-Wicker Park area. Ladies and gents would enjoy this easy-going beer and bar tour. 

- - Milwaukee

Question: How much beer will we actually be served during the tour?

Answer: The stops are subject to change and the focus of the tours are to introduce as many varieties as possible. From Pilsners and Lagers to Porters and Stouts. The size of the tastings may vary during the tour, but typically it amounts to the equivalent of 4 beers.

Question: What food options are there on the Chicago Beer Tasting Tours? Would they be able to accommodate a vegetarian?

Answer: The Lakeview beer tour pairs beers with Bacon and Beer Nuts. The Bucktown tour pairs beers with a Chicago-style hot dog. Unfortunately no substitutions can be requested on these tours.

Question: I live in Chicago and received an Experience Gift Card for the Beer tasting tour. Will we just be walking around different neighborhoods tasting beer? Because I already do that every weekend.

Answer: The tours are much more than just a "Beer Stroll" or "Bar Hop". Both tour locations focus on the history and stories of the neighborhoods and how beer helped shape the Chicago. In fact a lot of people from Chi-Town attend the tours. They've even had participants attend the tour for the stories without tasting the beer!

Question: I would like to give the Chicago Beer tour to my sister for her birthday. I don't know the area very well. Do I have to choose one of the two locations when I purchase the certificate? Which one should I choose for a beginner beer drinker?

Answer: Both tours are similar, however the Lakeview tour is recommended for beginners. The certificate is valid for either location so you can give it to your sister and she can decide when she redeems it for a reservation.

Question: I'm a college student and live near the Loop and do not own a car. Where are the start locations for these tours and can I take the L?

Answer: Yes, both of the Chicago Beer Tasting start locations are located near either the Brown or Blue lines. The tours are subject to change so the exact start locations for either the Lakeview or Bucktown tours will be provided once your reservation has been confirmed.
