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.

I'm not above bribery. I do have a bottle of 2010 I would be willing to share with the group if someone felt generous enough to include me.

I struck out. No luck for any option. Must have been 1/100 of a second too late.

@Serge, i'm going to be out of town that weekend. :-(

@OLB, i'm guessing there will be less demand for 10 am, so i thought i'd start there.

Well, yes . . . Still, a week after this, to Valparaiso, right?

Comment by Duppie on March 12, 2013 at 9:20pm

@ Serge,

that sounds like a much better ride to do after a night of drinking ;)
