Kind of an odd place, I was expecting the beer cafe and shop concept, but not the supermarket checkout line right in the middle of the place. The space is sort of odd on its own.

Atmosphere was a bit sterile, though fairly crowded on a weekend night. A couple tables were up front with more in back, no actual bar seating. Bright lights, coolers along the walls with beers arranged alphabetically by brewer. Cluttered boxes stacked on top of the coolers, taps listed on a side wall facing the register, which weren't very apparent when you walk in. Tap selection skewed towards local and newer breweries.

Bonus points for offering beers cheaper to go, but I'm not sure I'd stay here to drink a beer intentionally. Would return to visit other places nearby, but probably wouldn't make it a destination on its own. Far smaller selection than most local beer stores/bars if you're visiting from out of town, still a respectable one considering space limitations.

Stopped by Beermiscuous the other day and it was such the perfect location for appreciating good beer and hanging out to relax. The cafe style means there are couches and tables to sit with friends or do some work. Their bottle selection is good, though understandably centered on Midwest beers. Their draught selection is phenomenal though with more than 12 real stand-out beers on tap. Great for a weeknight to catch up with a friend and relax...highly recommend!

Very happy to have Beermiscuous in my neighborhood. Be aware that the Beer Advocate listing is incorrect: this is both a bar AND a store -- you can take beer to go as well. Everything is available as a single so you can mix and match your own six-pack.

12 beers on draft and over 350 bottles and cans. Their beerista told me they have the largest selection of local Chicago beer of any bar in the city. Over 30 local breweries and 130 different local beers at any given time.

So obviously, a great place to sample a variety of beers. And an excellent place to hang out. Very laid back vibe, more like a coffee shop than a bar. I've worked on my laptop from Beermiscuous during the day, taken dates there in the evening, and used the basement party space for a birthday party.
