    Lakeview and Lincoln Park Beer Tour (Sat) *

    So, of course you don't need a tour of beers, you're already the expert there. But do you need a tour of Lakeview and Lincoln Park Beers? Probably.

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. Whether you're an expert or not, you're going to love this tour. Why? Because, beer.
