Sip your way through Lakeview and Lincoln Park’s best beers on a 3-hour walking tour of these iconic Chicago neighborhoods. Follow your guide to a series of bars and breweries for flights of regional craft brews, and raise a glass as you learn how Chicago’s immigrant cultures created a proud brewing tradition. Experience the bar scene like a local, try a classic Midwestern pairing at a beer-and-bacon bar, and see what’s on draft in the Windy City.
What to Expect
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.

Incredible tour of 4 Chicago bars

Could not speak more highly of the tour we had with Chicago Beer Experience, a mixture of beer, bacon and history was the perfect combination. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting something different from their time in the windy city! Thanks for a fantastic afternoon.
