beermiscuous [beer-mis’ kyoo-uh s] adj.: characterized by casual and frequent enjoyment of a wide variety of craft beer
Borrowing from classic European cafes and casual American coffee shops, Beermiscuous offers a simple environment to relax and escape life’s complexities. Read a book by the fireplace. Pop your laptop open and use our free Wi-Fi to get some work done. Unwind after work with friends. Draft your fantasy teams. Host a knitting class. Play a board game. Impress your date with a place where conversations take center stage. Better yet, come up with your own creative experience.
Fresh, locally-focused and representative of a broad range of styles is our draft beer selection strategy. While some of your favorites do make re-appearances, expect to regularly see new releases and seasonal options. And of course, true to our name, don’t worry about committing to a full size pour of a beer you’ve never tried before – everything on draft is available in a 4 oz pour for simple creation of your own flight. Keep updated with our current draft list on Beer Menus.
With an ever expanding craft beer market, selecting the right beer for each occasion can be daunting. That’s why our Beeristas are trained to help guide you through selection, whether you’re a craft beer neophyte or nerd. We carefully curate 350 beers that represent almost every available style and update the options weekly. And since everything is in single bottle format, we make beer exploration simple – whether you want to share a bottle in the cafe, or mix a six-pack to go.
In an increasingly crowded and complex craft beer marketplace:
We celebrate the experience of simplicity. We practice approachability, welcoming a diverse community. We stimulate curiosity and exploration. But most importantly, we never take ourselves too seriously. Imbibe the moment.

PRIVATE EVENT FAQs
- RENTAL FEES? There is no rental fee to use our event spaces. However, there may be a non-refundable deposit to hold the space depending on the day and time of your event.
- SPECIAL PACKAGE PRICING? With such a wide variety of beer and wide variety of price points, we cannot offer special “package” pricing. However, we have several ways to accommodate just about any budget using a single capped tab, drink tickets, split tabs or simply a cash bar.
- BUYOUTS? Available any day of the week, but a minimum spend will be required and can vary widely depending on day/time.
- BYOB? Absolutely no outside alcohol is allowed to be brought into the cafe. For non-beer drinkers in your party, we have 2 wine options, 7 ciders and a few non-alcoholic drinks.
- UNDER 21? Anyone under 21 must be accompanied by a parent. For cellar events, the unique U. POUR draft system cannot be turned on if anyone in your party is under 21.
- FOOD? There is no required catering vendor – you are open to select anyone you’d like to provide food (or just do a pot luck). However, please remember to bring in any additional serving utensils you’ll need for food service (plates, silverware, napkins, ice, heat source, etc.).
- DECORATING? Tasteful decorating is ok, but remember anything brought in must be taken out. Please no confetti or glitter.
- SPECIAL HOURS? Please be mindful of our standard closing times: closed Monday, 11 PM other weekdays, 12 AM Friday and Saturday, and 8 PM Sunday, with last call roughly 20 minutes before close. Hours outside our normal operating hours may be available. Please inquire.
