About Us

Since we opened as its first brewery ever, way back in 2013, Evanston has been able to once again call itself home to a Temperance movement.

But this one is different. This one is about beer. Aside from that tiny detail, the two Temperance movements have always been about making life better in ways big and small. We think that’s a worthy goal, and one that only comes about by being open to new possibilities. It’s something we think about with the beers we brew and the things we do.

Dave, Assistant Brewer Dave starts our week off right with his ode to Mondays. It’s hard to imagine anyone who loves brewing beer as much as Dave. When he’s not brewing for us, he’s home brewing. Just when we think Dave can’t get any happier…he does.
