I wouldn't drink a Coors light if it were the last beer on earth, but do consider Blue moon to be a very drinkable , readily available beer, so classify me as you wish.
Did I love all of Tin man's beer offerings? No, but I don't love everything Bells puts out either.
The Alloy is a very drinkable IPA-Period! If you want a hops explosion in your mouth like a SN Torpedo or a hop slam this is not the IPA for you. If you want a smooth, slightly hoppy beer with a pleasant finish that doesn't give you heart burn for 3 days, this beer is right up your alley- this beer strikes me as a perfect "dinner" beer, an excellent compliment to the meal, but not overpowering.
The pilsner is also very drinkable with a slightly sweet finish- very refreshing, a beer I look forward to enjoying on a balmy summer's afternoon after working in the yard all day. The key is the drinkability- a very smooth finish.
The stout was a bit much for my taste but I'm not much of a Guinness fan either-just not what I prefer. Same for the porter, I'll let others discuss.
Bottom line, Tin man has a wonderful selection of beer offerings that will satisfy most paletes. I look forward to to trying the seasonal offerings that I hear are coming soon.
I'm ecstatic that Tin man is here in Evansville and look forward to sharing in their growth and expansion as they evolve going forward.

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.
