In recent weeks, we’ve briefly touched on various upcoming events and happenings around the Chicago area in anticipation of the long awaited spring and summer seasons. From Chicago’s numerous Farmer’s Markets to a handful of Windy City beer festivals, there’s always a lot to look forward to when the weather finally breaks and warmer temperatures are on the horizon.
Many of Chicago’s summertime festivals and attractions have been entertaining local residents for years, or even decades in some cases, but as the city changes and evolves with time, new forms of entertainment are introduced that allow us to take full advantage of living in one of the greatest cities on earth.
One such example of Chicago’s on-going entertainment evolution was just launched this week and the Chicago Brews Cruise was born. An interesting and innovative idea from Albany Park entrepreneur Rick Julien, the Chicago Brews Cruise offers a behind-the-scenes look at craft breweries located all around the Chicagoland area.
In a recent Feature on DNAInfo Chicago, Julien points out the concept behind the Brews Cruise is not to offer a party-bus-like atmosphere, but to provide a unique opportunity for true beer enthusiasts to learn about the brewing process and what goes into making some of the area’s best and most successful breweries.
Cruises last anywhere from three to six hours, depending on which breweries are on the tour and where each is located, and each cruise will visit three to four individual destinations. Price ranges for each cruise will range from $55 to $65, and for more information on Chicago’s new Brews Cruise venture, visit their website here or start following them on Facebook!
