Tin Man Brewery could be a great thing for the city of Evansville. But right now I don’t think Evansville is ready for what they are putting out. They did a fantastic job with all the advertising with billboards saying “ordinary beer don’t compute” and “you will become one of us”. The advertising was excellent, the building is amazing and the inside is perfect. The building made is a renovated industrial building down Franklin street in Evansville and they’ve done a great job with a paint job and renovating the inside to give it a classic brewery and old style setup with long tables, and a large gathering room on the second floor.
When Tin Man First opened up I was totally excited about that place I bragged about it to my friends , I retweeted everything they tweeted about, I was sold. I tried all of their beer the first day they opened I got a sampler and even tried a brisket from Gunslinger BBQ which was fantastic. The beer on the other hand was great at first. I tried it several times after that and when I realized they came out with a black ale which was a mistake to begin with it was a batch gone wrong. That batch gone wrong was in my opinion the best beer that they have put out and it was in limited quantities. The Red ale which most of my friends like was flat and not carbonated enough and the same could be said about the rest of their beers as well. The IPA had no hop character whatsoever; the stout had no roast or coffee flavor and was way to watery none of them put off the aroma you would expect from a stout or an IPA.

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.
