Brews Cruise Chicago
Pro Tip: Eat before you go on a tour so you have a great base for all the great beers you will sample.
Beer samples, a day zipping around to breweries, and beer knowledge for miles. That's some of what's in store on half-day tours with Brews Cruise Chicago, where guides unveil what goes into the craft behind craft beers. In the span of a few hours, you'll get a chance to meet brewers and learn how beer is made all the way though the bottling stage. Along the way, observe every step of the process in a working brewery and ask brew-specific questions, like how come there are no beer-based drinking fountains anywhere. Guides also take pains to highlight the unusual and special elements of production that make American craft beers unique.
