Argus Brewery is opening its doors to the public, giving first-time ever behind-the-scenes tours of the historic brewery on the south side of Chicago. Starting February 2, 2013, 90-minute tours will be offered. Guests of the tour will learn about the history of the brewery and its famous neighborhood, taste samples of the latest Argus brews and receive a commemorative Argus Brewery glass.
“For three years we have worked hard to make Argus a special place,” says co-founder Patrick Jensen. “My father and I are looking forward to opening our doors, sharing with our friends what we believe is a very special place.”
Argus Brewery was created in 2009 by the father and son duo, Bob and Patrick Jensen. Argus is located in one of the most historic areas in the Pullman District at 113th and South Front Street in Chicago. The building was constructed in the early 1900’s and housed the Schlitz horse teams and carriages.
Tours will be given on Saturdays only at 11:00 a.m. 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. February tour tickets can be purchased online at www.argusbrewery.com/tours. Tours are limited to 12 participants and all guests must show a minimum 21-year old proof of identification before entering.
