Their web site screams "scam" and "MLM pyramid scheme".
(And no, I'm not going to post a direct link since that would help keep the site at the top of the search engine rankings. Google "bio disc 2" if you want to see their train wreck of a web site first hand.)

Using the best site known to man on finding any breweries in any area in the USA, http://beermapping.com/
These are the likely choices:
Goose Island Brewery (http://www.gooseisland.com/)
Rock Bottom (http://www.rockbottom.com/)
Haymarket Pub & Brewery (http://www.haymarketbrewing.com/)
Piece Brewpub (http://www.piecechicago.com/)
Pipeworks Brewing (http://www.pipeworksbrewing.net/)
Revolution Brewing (http://www.revbrew.com/)
Metropolitan Brewing (http://www.metrobrewing.com/)
Half Acre Brewing (http://www.halfacrebeer.com/)
Finch's Beer Company (http://www.finchbeer.com/)
Which is a lot of choices... I'm looking to narrow it down to the top 3, and I really don't want to visit Goose Island - so pass on that.

I have not been to Goose since they got bought out by InBev, but last time I was there (couple of years ago) they had a number of beers on tap that were not available outside the brewpub.
If you're looking for an interesting beer bar (as opposed to a brewpub), check out The Map Room (http://maproom.com/).
And if you're coming out on I-94, be sure to stop at Greenbush in Sawyer MI!

Ordered a 1/3 keg(1/6 barrel) of their normal Black Butte Porter for $62 - when at the store to pick it up they had accidentally ordered a 1/2 keg of the yearly reserve edition(11% abv) so that's what I got instead. $270 half keg for about $60.. I think the store lost about $140 on the transaction.
Last time I ordered a keg through this same store they messed up my order and sold me a sam adams keg at cost to make up for it; I paid $80 for a full keg of sam adams(usually around $150). While the store I go through never gets my order right I am still their customer as it always works out in the end.
