  • Goose Island (Wrigleyville, Clybourn Brewpubs)
    If you've ever raised a glass of Belgian-style Sofie or gotten lost in the oaky, chocolatey flavors of Bourbon County Stout, you may think that you know Goose Island's beers. But you haven't tasted the whole story unless you've visited one of Goose Island's two Chicago brewpubs. That's because the brewpubs?both of which are independently owned by Goose Island founder John Hall, despite Anheuser-Busch's 2011 acquisition of the larger company?specialize in small-batch beers that showcase the creativity and prowess of its brewers. Most of these beers are produced only once and can't be found in any beer store, corner shop, or on your roommate's side of the refrigerator. When guests visit the pubs, they have the chance to sip artful ales, imperial stouts, and IPAs that might never again be tasted once the keg runs dry. Brewmaster Nicholas Barron talked to us about the creative brews he's currently working on and what to expect during a tour of the brewpub. On the Exclusive Brews You'll Taste: "We?re able to create new batches very frequently?we have at least one new beer a week, if not two. We do a lot of small batches, one-off beers, exploring different flavors?99% of everything we make here is just for the pub [not the mass market]." On His Summery Farmers' Market Beers: "Once a week, we go to Green City Market, buy fresh local produce, and incorporate that into our new beers. . . you can follow how things ripen as the season goes on. We just did a strawberry imperial wheatwine. Next week, a hopfenweizen with sweet basil, mint and lemon balm." On the Double Life of the Brewpub's Tour Guides Typically, tour groups stand on the brewery platform so they can get a view of the brewpub's inner workings. The tour guides also provide a glimpse behind-the-scenes. "A lot of our tour guides are brewers and are excited about sharing. Bring questions.?

  • City Winery Chicago
    Michael Dorf stood with his brother Josh, smiling over the barrel filled with wine from grapes they'd just crushed, fermented, and pressed. He claims that despite tastings and classes, he'd never begun to understand wine until this moment. As his understanding grew, he laid the foundations for City Winery: a full winery facility, restaurant, and concert venue inside urban Chicago. He now watches over more than 400 international wines and 20 house wines. Inside the winery, these wines?made from nine US and international varietals?age inside stainless steel tanks and American and French oak barrels. Here, staffers lead winemaking classes, letting visitors join the crushing and fermenting process, and showing them how make private barrels and fill custom juice boxes or bottles pasted with labels of their own design. These monolithic tanks and barrels can be seen through floor-to-ceiling windows from most of the restaurant's rooms, where servers ferry Executive Chef Andres Barrera's dishes, each a blend of Italian, French, Spanish, and Middle-Eastern flavors. The culinary team crafts small and large plates of artisanal cheeses, seafood, and flatbreads?which they make using the winery's own wine lees as yeast. In the restaurant and Barrel Room tasting bar, staffers pour housemade wines piped fresh from the cellar through 14 taps, while visitors bask in the glow from hard wood and floor to ceiling windows. Patrons dine on a ground floor lit by soft blue lights and hanging lamps fashioned from old wine bottles, as well as a mezzanine level looking out on the city skyline. Private dining rooms gather guests around long communal tables, stretched between exposed brick walls. In the show venue, comedians, live musicians, and slapstick-prone stage crew members entertain audiences under the glow of tabletop candles.

  • Finch's Beer Company
    After launching in early 2011 with just two beers on its menu, Finch's Beer Company has expanded into a full craft brewery. At the Chicago-based facility, seasoned brewmasters blend high-quality ingredients, such as American hops and flavored malts, into a core lineup of five beers. These include the Fascist Pig, a dry-hopped American red ale brewed with caramel malts, the Threadless IPA, a hoppy concoction devised in collaboration with the local design company, and the formidable Secret Stache Stout, which is a subtly sweet fusion of vanilla beans and chocolate malt. Though they're available in cans at bars throughout the city, these brews also flow freely on regularly scheduled brewery tours. Each guided visit introduces guests to the equipment and brewing process, including the part where the brewers milk the hops from the pink elephants.
