Owner description: Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours offer walkable beer tasting and bar tours in Chicago! We have two neighborhood tours; one in Lakeview & Lincoln Park, and the other in Bucktown & Wicker Park. You'll taste several craft beers, learn about Chicago history from 1833 to the present, and even eat some bacon or a Chicago hot dog! Tours are led by a trained guide, who will weave Chicago history and beer together in a fun, informative way while visiting four establishments, some of which have been around since the days of Prohibition. Perfect for men and women ages 21 to 121, individuals and groups, from bachelor parties to corporate outings, we've got something for everyone.

My brother and cousin came into town for Labor Day weekend and this was the perfect thing to do! We learned a little about the history of the mob/downtown Chi while drinking beer! Needless to say it was a great time going from place to place, I would have never found these neat bars without this tour. Phil was a great tour guide and we ended with a well needed piece of deep dish pizza!

We went on tour with friends from Chicago. It was a really fun. Lee had great knowledge of beer and history. Lee's funny style is great way to unwind and enjoy some beer. The Bacon and Beer tour is worth the time.

Glenn led our walking tour of Wicker Park / Bucktown - Pioneers and Pints. Sampled a wide variety of mostly local brews. He provided interesting info on the history of the local establishments and the neighborhoods. Even living in the area for a number of years, we learned some little known facts and background about development of these areas. But back to the beer...over 4 different spots we were offered about 13 samples - ranging from very light to a couple of meatier dark brews with a wide range in between. Plus a bonus hot dog along the way. We definitely would recommend this tour if you are looking for a way to spend a glorious afternoon.

Cheers Glenn

My sister took me on this tour for my 40th birthday and we had a blast! Our guide was really knowledgable and personable. I would recommend this to Chicago natives or those visiting Chicago!
