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.

Deet, Crown Point is definitely doable (and has been done). I'd probably plan a ride there for the beer fest they're having on May 18th.

The company I work for has entered its busiest season of a year, so I'll probably not be up to long weekend rides until mid-April. Something within the city, like a tour to the Lake Effect Brewing or something, would be all I can do for the next month and a half or so.

I  might be down.

Comment by Deet 4.5mi on February 25, 2013 at 9:35am

I am totally up for that date, any chance you would be intreted in hitting up Crown Brewery in Crown Point IN.  Sure hope we have as good of weather as you guys enjoyed yesterday.
