Join us for a special afternoon of strolling, storytelling, and beer drinking.

We meet at Maplewood Brewery & Distillery.  Enjoy a beer while we chat with co-founder and head brewer, Adam Cieslak, and learn about the history of the company and tour their space.  From there, History On Tap/Chicago Brewseum founder Liz Garibay guides us on a short stroll where she’ll discuss the history of Avondale and surrounding areas. We’ll pop into Frank & Mary’s, a neighborhood tavern with that iconic Old Sign hanging above, to chat a bit about Old Style history and maybe even throw back a beer. Our final stop is just a quick walk away. When we arrive at Metropolitan Brewing, co-founder Tracy Hurst leads us on a talk and a tour of their beautiful riverfront taproom and brewery. She’ll give us a beer too!

$25. Ticket price includes a beer at both Maplewood + Metropolitan. This tour is in collaboration with the Chicago Brewseum, a future non-profit museum dedicated to telling the story of beer.
