Time Out says

"Embrace your strange," reads the gigantic mural that graces the side of the Twisted Hippo Taproom and Eatery in Albany Park. It's a fitting motto for a brewery that's clearly trying to find its own place among Chicago's crowded brewing scene and establish itself as a destination for beer-lovers in an area of the city devoid of taprooms. Twisted Hippo's beer menu tries to appeal to drinkers who might be turned off by conventional IPAs and lagers, offering a stout brewed with peanut butter and an Italian plum saison. There's a menu of standard brewpub fare (wings, burgers, pretzels and fried cheese curds) if you're hungry, and you don't need to worry about tax or tip—Twisted Hippo's prices are "all-inclusive," with gratuity and fees factored in. Save your singles for the 10-player Killer Queen arcade machine located on the brewery's second level.
