Kayak Brews Cruise
Chicagoland Brews Cruise and Howling Wolfe Canoe and Kayak have partnered to bring you the gorgeous scenery of the Fox River and the great beer at Brother Chimp and Two Brothers Breweries!
This all-inclusive guided tour starts at Island Park in North Aurora for a guided trip led by Howling Wolfe Canoe and Kayak paddling the Fox River from North Aurora Island Park to the Aurora Athletic Club (roughly 1 hour).
The river portion of this tour is led by one of Howling Wolfe’s certified guides and you will be provided with a kayak, paddle and personal flotation device! Please be sure to dress in layers and dress to get wet! (Water shoes are highly suggested!). Feel free to call Howling Wolfe Canoe & Kayak with any questions regarding the paddle.
After the float we will hop on our Brews Mobile to visit Two Brothers Roundhouse and Brother Chimp breweries. Your ticket includes a pint of beer and appetizers at Two Brothers and a flight of beers and tour of the Brother Chimp micro-brewery everyone is talking about.
The Chicagoland Brews Mobile will then return you to your parked vehicles at Island Park in North Aurora.

Brother Chimp focuses on traditional style beers with the slogan “Craft beers that taste like beer”, and recent popularity has allowed him to expand his operation.
Two Brother’s Brewing can be considered the initiators of craft beer in the Western Suburbs having been founded in 1996 just as the craft beer craze was beginning. The Roundhouse offers a large variety of their flagship and special offering beers plus a popular food menu.
