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.

Monthly is good. Do you have a suggestion (suggestions), Deet?

Comment by Deet 4.5mi on January 16, 2013 at 9:01am

All good ideas, so do we want to pick one and plan it out for the February ride? We could possibly plan for a long ride with a shorter route option if the weather is to much...  Ideas? Thoughts? Any one up for making this a monthly thing?

Aha! Another one. Thanks, Alex :)

Great! I'm working on The Most Complete List of breweries around and in Chicago, will post it here and wait for corrections, like, which ones I missed.

You go Chris! And we here in the OP are more than happy to offer Daughton House (near Blue Line Austin Stop) as a staging area before, during, or after!

Church Street makes a north/south ride very possible.  Emmetts/Downers Grove, Rock Bottom/Lombard, Lunar/Villa Park & Church St/ Itasca.  Google says 17.8 miles and Metra is very close by at either end.  Holy liver disease Batman!

Holy crap!  The Salt Creek Trail is a block from Church Street Brewery.

Looking forward to joining some rides!  Thanks for setting this up Serge!

Sehr kool!

Hmmm . . . Not exactly beer-related, though I like it ;)
