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.

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.

Sorry about the short notice...

It's been a while since we've been to the NW of the City, and there have been some changes.

If anyone would like to explore them, let's meet this Sunday at 8 a.m. at Marmalade (corner of Damen and Montrose) for breakfast, then continue thusly. Back via Metra from Barrington.

Right, right. Sounds good.

We will, but the whole point of this endeavor is to visit the new ones. That doesn't mean you have to stick with me and not go to LunaR instead, and then re-join me after.
