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.

My bad, I mean THIS Sunday. 5/13/18.

Anyway, I'm planning on a short ride to 18th Street Brewery in Hammond if anyone's interested. This will be a slow ride that can split into a slow group and fast group. 26 miles. Train back option. Leave from Waveland Golf Course at 10 a.m. by the Clocktower.

Indeed, thanks all for a great ride on a great day.  I am rather stiff today.  The pace was a bit brisk considering the low mileage so far this year.  A month from now, it will be easier.
