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.

Sounds promising.  I would need to be back by late afternoon.

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov 4 hours ago

We can ride to Whiner Brewing (opens 11 a.m.), then stop at Moody Tongue or somewhere else Saturday.

Did you decide on Saturday or Sunday?
Comment by bobweiser yesterday

leave at 10 to get to IO at noon? the more the merrier! would Moody Tongue be a more practical 2nd stop? have you been there yet? i'm a fan. joe and dane took me there my first time.

Comment by JustWill yesterday

What time are you guys thinking of going? I may join

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on Tuesday

Technical? Who's technical?

But with the day as short as it is it might not be practical.

Comment by bobweiser on Tuesday

ok, if you're going to get technical. never heard of Whiner, but i'm a fan of Moody Tongue, would it work to stop by there on the way back?

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on Tuesday

That's SW ;)

But IO sounds good, anyway.

Have you been to all the breweries recently opened in Chicago proper? Whiner? Moody Tongue?

Comment by bobweiser on Tuesday

maybe Imperial Oak? anywhere you want to go?
