They have been recognized as Beer Advocate’s 34 Best New Breweries in the U.S. They have also been voted one of the top ten brewery tours in the country by USA Today. Situated at Malt Row in the brewer’s corner of Chicago, this tour will definitely add a little life to your next Chicago vacation.

    You’ll start at the timeless Palmer Hilton House and make your way up Lake Shore Drive, taking in the view of Lake Michigan and Chicago’s North Side.

Here, you will visit Dovetail Brewery on a one-hour guided tour. Learn about the brewery, their methods of brewing, ingredients they use, and much more! Additional time will be allowed in the Tap Room so you can sample some beers or even enjoy a full glass. Considered one of the best brewery tours in Chicago, this experience definitely should be on your list of things to do in Chicago!
