What You Can Expect

Chicago Craft Brewery Barrel Bus Tour

Tour a brewing production facility

There's no better way to travel from brewery to brewery than in a Prohibition-era styled barrel bus! Step on the bus through the speakeasy style vertical door to start your one of a kind Chicago Brewery Tour. As you are driven from brewery to brewery, learn about the history of Chicago's beer industry originating in the 1800's. Did you know that Chicago's first mayor owned a brewery? Your guide will provide an entertaining and educational insight of Chicago politics in connection with breweries, and the affect that Prohibition had on the city.  

Each brewery has its own unique qualities. As you stop at some large and small facilities, you can get the sense of what it was like to step in a brewery back before Prohibition. You will receive samples of craft beer at each of the three breweries and tour one of the production facilities. Enjoy approximately 45-55 ounces of different flavors of craft beer along the entire tour. On the production facility tour, learn the step by step procedures of brewing and the science behind the process.

Please bring your government issued photo ID. Your tour ends at the pickup location.
