Description

Sample local and international beer while exploring two iconic Chicago neighborhoods on this 3-hour walking tour. With an in-the-know guide, explore Lakeview and Lincoln Park, stopping at several bars and other venues for tastings of Midwestern craft brews, from porters to lagers, as well as some Irish Guinness. You'll toast Chicago’s rich brewing heritage as you learn about its past and present beer culture and watch a home-brewing demo. Plus, enjoy three of your tastings with three different types of bacon.

Your walking tour begins at a local watering hole, where you'll meet your guide and enjoy your first beer tasting of the day.

Then continue your tour around the Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods, making your way to other locally owned, off-the-beaten-path establishments. As you walk, hear stories from your insider guide about Chicago’s long history of brewing beer.

Pop into an Irish pub for a creamy pint of Guinness pulled just right by an expert barkeep. Head over to a beer-and-bacon bar to savor a variety of crispy bacon treats paired with your beer tasting. Meet the owner of a specialty beer and wine store, and hear about how he handpicks his collection. And stop by a microbrew pub before walking into a punk rock bar that was established before Prohibition and is known today for its eclectic beer selection and whiskeys.

You'll also have the chance to watch a home-brewing demonstration, learning about different beer styles as you take in the aromatic hops and barley. When your tour ends, you'll have plenty of new knowledge about some of Chicago's best places to find a great pint.
