Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society

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.

31st, eh?  Serge, you'd better have some ridiculous lies to tell us to prepare for Lee's Liar's Tour.

I'm glad you liked it! If nothing goes wrong, may be I'll ride there next Sunday (after beerfest on Saturday :)

it was a breeze getting here, and they're only out of 2 beers. $8 for a flight of 6 is a great deal. and they have wifi. ask for anne, she's a sweetie, and a biker, too, or at least she was until her bike was stolen.
