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 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!
