    Brewery Tours

    (34)
    The resurgence of craft beer is now! Your Prohibition-Era expert will guide you on an all-inclusive adventure to taste samples at three breweries and tour one brewing production facility. Enjoy the distinctive qualities of Chicago craft brewing, while reveling in the artistic triumphs of this charming and historic city. This full-bodied voyage will indeed leave your palette pleased! Did you know Chicago's first mayor owned a Brewery? -- As you are driven from brewery to brewery, learn the history of Chicago's beer industry and how it traces its origins back to the 1800's. Your guide will provide educational and entertaining insights about Chicago politics in connection with breweries and the effect that Prohibition had on the city. 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 and start your one-of-a-kind Chicago Brewery Tour. Each brewery has its own unique qualities. Stop by large and small facilities so you can get a sense of what it was like to walk into a brewery before Prohibition. You'll receive samples of craft beer at each of the three breweries and tour one of the production facilities. At the production facility, you'll learn the step-by-step procedures of brewing and the science behind the process. Enjoy approximately 45-55 ounces of different flavors of craft beer throughout the tour. So, Carpe Diem -- loosely translated, it means 'grab a beer' in Latin!

    Science of Alcohol Tour

    (9)
    She BLINDED me, with SCIence! Don't pretend like you don't know the song. Ever wonder why Thomas Dolby said "science "instead of" alcohol"? Maybe because alcohol IS science, by some transitive property. But enough about one-hit wonders. Let's talk liquor. Get ready to learn all about how CH makes Vodka, Gin and lots of other spirits from locally-grown grains. This tour includes "The Tradition", a special take on the classic Russian way to drink vodka: ice cold CH Vodka, with rye bread and pickles. Time Out Chicago included The Tradition on their list of "The 100 Best Things We Ate and Drank" (www.chdistillery.com/press) and it's the perfect way to wrap up the tour of this beautiful Vodka distillery! Just remember Newton's Third Law of Motion, paraphrased as "drink responsibly!"
