Chicago Beer Gardens Kick Off the Fall Season

Wednesday, September 28, 2016 12:00 AM by Maddy Osman

Beer + gardens: two words that have intonations that are beautiful on their own but somehow form something even more beautiful when combined. While these sunny fall days last, get out and explore the patios and beer gardens dotting Chicago. Not sure where to head? We're here to let you in on eight of the best beer garden spots in the city.

Now with Chicago Beer Experience Beer Tours, yes — you're learning how beer is made. But — you're also learning about Chicago history and exploring local neighborhoods, beer in hand.
