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.

@Bryan, ride down early, imbibe, and get a ride to the train!

Comment by Bryan McClaran on March 20, 2013 at 12:05pm

I have enough friends that live there that I can take the South Shore or Metra close to it and get a ride. Barring that, I build her a bike, take Metra to Flossmoor, and ride from there.

I think Bryan can hire a pedicab (for the wife, at least) . . .

Comment by bobweiser on March 20, 2013 at 11:42am

@Bryan, if she doesn't ride, and you don't have a car, how are you going to get back and forth?

@J.A.W., a ridley -- 40% off because it's a 2012!

Robert, we are car-free.
