World Beer Tour

Wednesday the new Mini Beer Tour started at Old Chicago! My Dad, Travis and I have made it kind of a tradition to do all the Mini Beer Tours. We have consistently gone for every tour, for a few years now. My goal is to just get the t-shirt. I WILL admit, I don’t always drink all the beers on the tour, because some of them are just plain nasty!

This tours t-shirt looks like this!

The mini tour going on now is Oktoberfest! Each location may have a different list of beers, but there is 8 beers for every location! The list of beers for the Merle Hay Old Chicago include:

  • Summit Oktoberfest
  • Ayinger Oktoberfest
  • Paulaner Salvator
  • Warsteiner Dunkel
  • Hofbrau Hefe-Weizen
  • Sam Adams Oktoberfest
  • Point Oktoberfest
  • Millstream Oktoberfest


Last night I ordered the sampler which included:

  • Warsteiner Premium Dunkel
  • Sam Adams Oktoberfest
  • Millstream Oktoberfest
  • Summit Oktoberfest

I liked them all and drank all of them! The sampler is an easy way to knock out 4 of the 8 beers on the tour. They give you the sample in a 4 oz glass, so it’s like you are only drinking 2 beers instead of 4 whole ones. The next time we go in though, we will HAVE to drink all 4 FULL beers to finish!

I ALSO completed my SECOND WORLD BEER TOUR! I didn’t take a picture of it, but I received a long sleeved Old Chicago t-shirt. Perfect for the cooler months around the corner.

Old Chicago is also a great place to try new and different beers. Travis ordered a new and definitely different beer, Ghost Face Killah.

Oh man was this HOT!! My mouth was on FIRE! I have had beers that were considered “hot” or had a pepper on the bottom, but this was intense. This beer is brewed in Boulder, Colorado. My dad (a fan of hot things) decided he was going to purchase more from Beer Crazy.

The Oktoberfest Mini Beer Tour is going on until September 29th. So, if you are looking for something to do this weekend to kick off fall, go to Old Chicago and enjoy some brews!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
