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.

Saturday promises to be nice.

I don't, after all, want to ride 120-something miles this time. My knee's hurting, and I'm afraid to bust it with only three months left until the marathon.

So... There are couple of breweries SW of the city I haven't been to yet.

If you wanna join me in checking 'em out, let's meet at 8:30 a.m. at Damen and Roscoe.

I don't want to push it, as usual (see above, my knee), so a bit more moderate speed it will be.
