NWI and Chicago Southland Craft Brewery Tour

Sun., Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.
4.5 hours

We have been working with the owners and operators of the local breweries to create the best experience possible. If your new to craft beer or already a craft beer lover, you will find the Illiana Brew Bus is a fun and safe way to visit multiple craft breweries in Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland. Hop on board, sit back, relax and learn about the great breweries in Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland. We will notify the breweries and let them know when we will arrive as a courtesy.  In general, breweries do not take reservations.  Sometimes, they will set aside a table for our groups, but there is no guarantee.  HOWEVER, WE DO NOT MAKE THE RESERVATIONS FOR THE WINERIES!  AND SOME WINERIES REQUIRE RESERVATIONS DEPENDING ON THE SIZE OF YOUR GROUP.  PLEASE ASK US WHETHER YOU NEED TO MAKE THEM AND WE CAN ASSIST YOU IN IDENTIFYING THE WINERIES THAT REQUIRE YOU TO MAKE THE RESERVATIONS. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy a pint at each stop. You can also purchase beverages at the stops which can be consumed on the bus or at home. Current Illiana Brew Bus stops include: Manic Meadery in Crownpoint - brand new!
