CHICAGO BREWERIES & CRAFT BEER

The craft beer scene in Chicago is exploding, with over 60 craft breweries and counting! Between the hip microbreweries and trendy taverns, everyone is taking notice of Chicago perfecting the drinking game. But don’t take our word for it. GQ Magazine named Chicago the “Greatest Drinking City in America” and The New York Times even paid us a visit to taste the best of the best at the Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer — aka FoBAB for those who try to score a ticket each year.

From downtown and beyond, Chicago offers beer buffs a one-of-a-kind experience. Take a tour through some of Chicago’s deeply rooted historic pubs with History on Tap, sip on local brews at Chicago's best bars for craft beer. Looking for Chicago breweries with tap rooms? We have several beer itineraries and Chicago brewery maps through the neighborhoods to get you started on your tasting trail. Cheers!
