    Good beer! This is the one you want to book if you are a fan of Chicago Fire as it starts at Molly's. Only downside to this tour is it is a little distance from the city of Chicago so you need transportation to get there. You do get a lot of beer on this tour, and a Chicago style dog to help wash it down. You are not rushed. Everyone was having a good time so this tour actually went over the 3 hours. Can't remember the tour guide's name but he was fantastic telling stories about each location, conversing with the guests on a personal level, and allowing everyone to have fun.

    I loved that our tour guide not only talked to us about the beers history but also the history of the area that we did our tour in. Glen knew a lot about the different kinds of beer we tasted and also how each brewery got started. We had a small group so we got to ask lots of questions and go at our own pace. When we were done Glen helped us figure out where to go next to continue having a great evening. Our group got along so well that we all decided to go out together for dinner. Best tour I have taken by far and would definitely do it again when I come back to Chicago.
