Beermiscuous, a local beer cafe in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago (and another new location in Highwood, IL), recently celebrated their sixth anniversary, having opened on June 27, 2014. In years prior, they have hosted events ranging from tappings of special beers to raffles that give the winner two free beers each week. With the current state of COVID-19, Beermiscuous instead hosted a virtual tasting, hosted by co-owner, Austin Harvey.
In recent years, books written by comedians about their own lives have become extremely popular.

“Studies that we’re aware of show that 63% of craft beer drinkers yearn for the days when Big Beer was great. The craft beer “revolution” is nothing more than a conspiracy to devalue the quality product that our fine American brewers have been creating for decades.” — #AlternativeFacts
These, however, are not Alternative Facts. This is What We’re Drinking this week.
I could talk about it….you know. The Election. But I won’t. Some people are unhappy with the results and the road that lies ahead. Today isn’t about that, though. Today is Veteran’s Day and we want to honor those who have fought so hard for our freedom. Today we honor Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Friends. These are the people who matter! So raise a toast to someone you know who has given their all to keep our country great, always.
