Welcome a new business to the neighborhood

If you can’t wait for our party, you’re invited to a special neighborhood night at Beermiscuous:

After a long journey to find the right location, obtain dual operating licenses (tavern & packaged goods), build-out an 80-year old retail space, and hire a first-of-its-kind Beerista staff, Beermiscuous is ready to open to the public on Saturday, June 28!

Beermiscuous brings a unique, café-style craft beer experience to Chicagoland with a curated selection of 12 rotating drafts and more than 300 bottle/can options for in-café enjoyment or off-premises consumption. There’s a heavy focus on local beers, with 50 percent of inventory from Chicago and Midwest breweries.

In support of our neighbors and neighborhood, we decided to open up a day before our announced grand opening for an informal, local-only publicized Neighborhood Sneak Peek:
Friday, June 27
