OUR MORNING ROUTE HAS MULTIPLE STARTING LOCATIONS. IT WILL STATE WHERE THE TOUR STARTS ON THE PURCHASE PAGE
LAGUNITAS (1843 S Washtenaw): Most Saturday 11:45 tours will start at Lagunitas, which does have a FREE parking lot located right out front of the building. Lagunitas does open at 11, so feel free to get there early and look around. It's awesome! When you walk into the facility, they will check your ID. If asked, DO NOT sign up for their in house noon tour. You will meet our tour guide at 11:45 outside the tap room on the 3rd floor. There will be a lounge area with couches at the top of the stairwell. That is where our guide will meet!!
GOOSE ISLAND (1800 N Clybourn): some Saturday 11:45 and all Sunday 11:45 brewery tours start at Goose Island. They also have FREE PARKING (please utilize designated drivers). Also, those tours DO NOT drop back off at Goose Island! They will drop back off at the North Avenue redline EL stop, which is less than half a mile away. You also have the option of staying at the last stop, taking a cab from the last stop (it is closer to downtown), or we can drive you somewhere in the vicinity of Goose Island. We've had to many incidents at Goose where people have left the tour, went back inside the brewery, and were disorderly. Goose Island is a "family friendly" neighborhood restaurant, and this type of behavior is not tolerated.
ATLAS BREWING (2747 N Lincoln): some Saturday 11:45 tours start at Atlas, which does have FREE street parking in the neighborhood, but DO NOT park on Lincoln because you might get ticketed. This route will drop back off at Atlas when the tour is finished.
Saturday 4:00 tour starts at HAYMARKET (737 W Randolph). There is a lot just north of Lake on Halsted for $8, or search the surrounding side streets for free parking. It is available, but please check the signs! This tour will drop back off at Haymarket
