A few weeks back, we went to a birthday party at a brewery that I didn't even know existed: Miskatonic Brewing. It is located in Darien - on a frontage road, but from Downers Grove, it is pretty easy to travel to for a beer. The party room is in the back - like a lot of breweries, it seems. And we had a great time. I stuck to just one beer: This Little Gray Belgian Wheat Ale which has a 3.8 from Beer Advocate . I compare everything I come across to the home team over at Solemn Oath. I'm sure this beer from Miskatonic is great - and I will be the first to admit that I'm a total craft beer amateur - but with all the craft breweries that have sprung up, they're starting to run together in my mind. That's ok. I'm not their target customer. Since this place is so close, I'm guessing we'll be back. And maybe then I can grab a coaster to join the online coaster collection here on the blog.
