Default Goose Island Brewery tour?

Anyone know if Goose Island still does brewery tours? I just moved to Chicago and would like to go to a few breweries. I found a couple of old articles about tours but couldn't find anything recent.

I found Two Brothers Brewery, any others around that offer tours?

Thanks

I hear ***HALF ACRE BEER COMPANY*** has an open door policy not sure about tours.

Also try Flossmoor Station Restaurant and Brewery and Great Food and Handcrafted Beer - Chicago Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery they are very active on the CBS-HB listserv

Three Floyds just into Indiana does a decent tour for a "donation" on Saturdays. Good beer, too.

I just noticed that Half Acre is 3 miles from my place... cool...

That's Crazy! How random is that that we all live within a few miles of each other? I live in Albany park near Kimball and Foster. All of the North Shore folks should do a group tour of one of the breweries sometime.

I live in Lakeview near Wellington/Broadway. Friar Tuck's anyone?

Also, the tour sounds like a good idea, I have no friends that like to brew or even drink good beer...
