What you'll do

I'll take you to 3 different Chicago institutions to sample wine or beer with food, experiencing each place like a local. We'll learn about the wines/beers (with an emphasis on American wines and regions and local brews) as we talk about Chicago history including discussion about American Prohibition and our city's wild, speakeasy past. As we move between locations, we'll have the chance to see and talk about some of Chicago's most popular icons and architecture as well as some off-the-beaten-path sights. This is a late afternoon tour that is a perfect way to transition into your night if you have later dinner plans and is a great pre-theatre/before-the-show activity. This tour is for singles, couples and groups alike, the only prerequisite is to have an interest in wine/local beer and novices are welcome. If you like walking tours, wine, or beer and food, this tour is perfect for YOU!

Kelly

I'm Kelly (a.k.a. MaeveWine), a wine, food and history fanatic. I'm a trained city guide (5star tours!) and I've been doing excursions for friends & family for decades. The Windy City has been my home for 25+ years and for the last 10, I've been working in the food and beverage industry and even owned my own wine distribution company. Always in search of 'the perfect bite' and a solid glass of wine, I created this tour to share noteworthy wines and food with visitors seeking the same. I've traveled the world meeting new people doing walking tours and have eaten some of the best morsels so I know from personal and professional experience how to make the best of our time together. I try to make a new friend every day, come drink and eat with me at some of my favorite spots!

What's included

Food
We'll share food at each location, either a snack, appetizer or dessert and discuss the pairing of the wine and food.
Drinks
We'll sample a 1-4 oz. glass of wine at each location. Wine drinkers will be able to choose between white or red wine. Beer…

Where you'll be

At our first stop off Michigan Avenue, I'll activate your taste buds with beverages & food at a spot named after a movie filmed in Chicago. We'll talk about the drinks and Chicago history. Next, we'll walk to a popular location where we'll have the chance to see some of Chicago's prominent sights and talk about how the Windy City got it's monikers. Our last stop will be wine or beer with a bite where dessert is an option at a Chicago favorite.
