Just okay, I want to like this brewery more but it does not meet or exceed any of the standards set by its local competitors. Temperance is like a .500 baseball team, not bad enough to be terrible and be totally ignored and not good enough to be embraced and cherished as a local hero. Not to mention that Temperance "missed the boat " by not establishing a downtown Evanston satellite brewpub a couple of years ago. The current industrial location with expensive off-site provided snacks so far away from mass transit and high density housing is unattractive.

Interesting place with a really nice beer garden / deck to hang out and have some drinks. They have snacks available and you can order in food if you want something more substantial. Can see the brewery a bit through a glass wall, but not really a tour or anything like that when I was there - just a really nice beer garden!

For being a Brewery in an industrial spot, they got a nice setup. Nice open feel with the garage doors leading to a nice size patio. The beers are really good and they rotate which ones they can.

I'll definitely be back for more. Going to try a night they have music playing.

I like hanging around in the tap room even more than my garage. While my garage is closer, it doesn't have Temperance's spectacular beers!

Also — ambiance, patio, snacks — all great. This place is an asset to the community.
