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.

If anyone is up for it, I'm doing Alter, Skeleton Key, Miskatonic and Myths & Legends on Saturday. Sort of a post-inaugural depression ride. Getting to Alter at noon. Approx 14 miles, suburban residential streets the entire way. Starts & ends near Metra BNSF.

...In case anyone still up and would like to join me, let's meet for breakfast at Mortar and Pestle, on Broadway at Barry, at 9 a.m., leave at 10. It's about 10 miles to Whiner.

Anyone would like to ride to the Whiner tomorrow again, with a stop at the new, just opened brewery, On Tour, on the way back?

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on January 9, 2017 at 5:58pm

...Yeah, looks something has gotten frozen, after all ;)

wups, wrong gravity, that should've been:

plato = -616.868 + 1111.14 * og - 630.272 * og^2 + 135.997 * og^3

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on January 9, 2017 at 5:35pm

What? You sure nothing got frozen? ;)

Comment by bobweiser on January 9, 2017 at 5:17pm

in case you ever want to calculate it for an atypical beer:

abw = abv / 1.25
fg ~ 1 + abv / 100
og = fg + abv * fg / 133
plato = -616.868 + 1111.14 * fg - 630.272 * fg^2 + 135.997 * fg^3
celsius = 0.04 * plato - 0.42 * abw + 0.2

and as everyone knows:

fahrenheit = (celsius * 1.8) + 32

Whew.  No crying over spilt beer (oder Eissbeer). ;-)

Comment by bobweiser on January 7, 2017 at 1:36pm

thanks, bringing it in!

IIRC, typical beer will freeze ~ 28F.
