Tucked away off a winding road near Interstate 55, Darien’s Miskatonic Brewing Company lives up to its namesake of H.P. Lovecraft’s Miskatonic University. The microbrewery’s interior is spacious and offers rooms filled with bookcases and board games, meaning you will likely make your own adventure between growler pours. The outer taproom’s bar gives you a glimpse into the brewhouse and cellar, while the inner taproom is climate-controlled and is perhaps the more comfortable place to be in the winter and summer. If you get hungry, a brewer will provide you with info about local restaurant delivery.
