Wendella's Beer & BBQ Cruise

Tour Information

Sample a variety of beers from local brewery Goose Island and authentic barbecue from Sweet Baby Ray’s. Enjoy these Chicago favorites while cruising Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Unlike our traditional tours, the Beer & BBQ Cruise does not include a narrated tour, but a tour guide is available to answer any questions you may have. With an enjoyable playlist and a more casual set up, this cruise is the perfect occasion to meet with friends or co-workers after work. This 2 hour cruise is offered once a month on a Thursday 5:45pm-7:45pm.
