Tin Man has came a long way! Their beers match up to their awesome marketing. Atmosphere was great will definitely frequent more often.

Stop #466 on my world brewery tour.

Sunday evening around 8 after a visit to Carson's. Looking at the older reviews, it appears they had some growing pains early on - especially with the beer. I'm pleased to report I had nothing but a wonderful time on a slow Sunday night in early December.

Could say with confidence that this is one of the five most wonderful interiors I've seen in a brewpub. Refurbished industrial with exposed and painted brick. Just enough of the robot motif going on to make it really cool. When some local Evansville hipsters walked in, I felt like for a moment that I was in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Very well done.

The beers were all solid. I had a flight of the "standards" and then a flight of the higher gravity beers. Not a big fan of the prescribed flights - just charge a premium for any 4 or 5 beers. Flexibility comes at a cost which I'm fine with.

I had the wings which were good.

Ten years ago I would have given my first born to have places like this in places like Evansville.

Huge improvement over the last two years. I'm excited for Tin Man in 2015.

I've been to Tin Man twice now. Both times I have been very impressed with their food. Had the chicken and waffle sandwich the first time and the Cuban sandwich last night. I also think they do a very good job with their beer. I've had the Csar Imperial Stout and the Overlord Imperial IPA. Both excellent. The vibe is a little weird, but the wait staff is very friendly and professional.

Went after recommendation from Sarah at Airport Lounge. said beer was good, fun place and food was crazy. Worked for me.
Completely agreed. So I guess I'm not going to be in mainstream, where ratings are midlin...

Beer was a combo of the basics done quite nicely (red, pale, nitro stout) with a nice Pilsner and a very good season release Rosen Weiss...then throw in a spot on DIPA (Overlord) and a big, beautiful 12% abv RIS (Csar)... both outstanding. All were very well balanced with a smooth mouth. Just good quality beer.

The food was great. Nice eclectic menu. We shared a couple of salmon corn cakes (yum); she had a great salad and I had a spectacular seasoned and cheesed mushroom soup. Ok...I was hungry...so I also got the orange braised pork belly and fried green tomato sandwich with vinegar red cabbage and pumpkin butter on waffles. It was just outrageous...so many flavors to pair with the beer fleet and the other freestanding big beers.

I liked the décor...though not that different any more...brick walls, exposed/painted ceiling and suspended ductwork. Lots of open air/high ceilings. Friendly but not great service. They have their ways and don't really do anything special for you. Not much on special requests. No real complaints...but not much to praise either. A bit noisy at times...but definitely light and fun atmosphere.

I think there is probably something special here for anybody...in my case a bunch of special things.

If I get back to Evansville...will definitely head right back.

I liked this place. I stopped in at lunch with a local. If you're ever in EVV and you're thirsty for a well-made beer... this is the place.

I had their beer sampler. Although nothing stopped the earth form rotating on its axis, they were consistently good across the board.

The decor isn't for me, I think it would be noisy at night with a crowd in there.

Food was just OK.

It took me less than 30 seconds after I walked through the door to realize I wanted nothing to do with this place. The host and maybe the manager at the host stand were more interested in image than he was taking our money. We were in about 8:00 on a Saturday night and wanted to try their beer in their building. We were told it would be 30 minutes to order beer. The place was 2/3's full and the bar was basically unoccupied. I have never been to a food and drink establishment that did not do everything they could to meet their customers needs and gladly take their money. It was no problem to walk out the door and go to the Gerst House a few blocks down the street where I ordered anything but a Tin Man product. Maybe the comments in other reviews "about second chances" should say something to anyone who is interested in trying this place.
P.S. My son and his friends ate dinner here later in the evening and had a like experience along with what they described as an "inept server."

Really enjoyed this place. They have active brewery tours at different parts of the evening and it is something you should check out!!! they have a few things going on there that are very unique and up and coming... Im not going to ruin the surprise because If you are driving through and passing Evansville this is a must stop. Everyone there was very energetic... Try the salmon appetizer its to die for. For my entree it was very filling so as far as entree pricing goes it was less than a steak you get at any other restaurant. I guess they use to have serve yourself bbq and that didn't go over well. They have totally changed things and now have full control over there kitchen. The menu is simple and easy and I dont see anyone having a problem finding something they could enjoy.

Regarding the beer I had some newer beers a bourbon rye beer which was great as well as there imperial ipa. I spoke with several people there and now that they have there session beers going strong they are working on more specialty and seasonal beers so be on the lookout for new beers from these guys and go check the place out!

This is by far the best beer bar in Evansville and vicinity. Very fresh and tasty beers in a variety of distinctive styles and an awesome inspired food menu. Tin Man has $2 pints on Mondays, lunch specials and other great deals throughout the week. All of their bar and server staff is more than friendly and knowledgeable about the beer and food that they serve. They aim to please. The atmosphere is in my opinion the perfect micro brewery environment, an old boarding house from the 1800's converted into a beautiful bar/restaurant/beer production facility with a modern industrial vibe and plenty of room. They also have outdoor seating to boot. If you are visiting Evansville, IN be sure to stop in you will not want to leave. One of my favorite beers is the Alloy on N2. It's a flavorful American IPA. Tin Man offers up many of their selections with a CO2 - N2 option. Check them out!
