Basically, you visit the brewery. People are great and generous with their pours. Informative and fun. for people digging the process, visit this hidden gem of a brewer.

Great tour and a great tasting. Very friendly. Tour is small enough to get your questions answered and they’re glad to talk with you afterwards. Very neat space too. It would be nice if they got a tasting room built though.

Very nice people, excellent beers that don’t taste like everyone else in the region. Krankshaft is still one of the best kölsch-style beers that I’ve had, even after visiting Köln. It’s amazing to see how hard they work to put out a quality product. If you have the chance to set up a tour, don’t pass it up.

Pretty solid brewer of non-traditional lagers. The brewery is set in an old auto repair shop, conncted to a distillery (Koval). They do the occasional tour, but nothing particularly exciting.

If you’re in Chicago and want to visit the coolest industrial microbrewery in the city, then you need to contact Doug and Tracy at Metropolitan Brewing!! They offer occasional tours, and you definitely need to go check them out. Brewing quality German-style beers, this husband and wife team (and Star Trek geeks) have got themselves a real gem of an operation here. Unfortunately they can’t do off-premise sales, but they’ll give you a few samples, and you can buy a glass or t-shirt to help them out. This was definitely our favorite stop in town. (Brewery #515).
