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.

Speaking of Kenosha, is anyone going to the Velodrome swap 3/24?

Ha. Indeedy.

Ah, another place to stop to if I get thirsty on the way to Kenosha.

Eeeenteresting.

Was at 3Floyd's over the weekend. Was told they have plans to expand the restaurant/bar. Looking to triple the capacity. Waiting for the city approval.
