Whether it’s changing careers, naming our brewery after a seemingly incongruous approach to beer, or donating 100% of every Temperance Trikonasana yoga class to a different local nonprofit each month, we like doing things differently.
Always down for whatever, Ben keeps the Tap Room way above medium by doing things others don’t. Like the Camel Walk. He also enjoys doing the dog walk with his toy poodle Maurice.
Dave, Head 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. And just when we think Dave can’t get any happier … he does.
Emily, Brewery Ops Manager/Events
Coming to us via the Lyric Opera and Glunz, Emily takes care of everything from grains coming in to kegs going out. She’s the only one who knows how to reset our glycol chiller, and she will never let us forget that.
Mike, Head Brewer
Mike, our resident Maestro, started from the bottom but now he’s here. He brews both our mainstays and gets his home brewer on with our fun and exciting new stuff. He does it all with skill & grace ma non troppo.
Geno, Sales Rep/Events
Our Chicago sales rep, Geno always carries a song in his heart and a joke in his pocket. His passion for Temperance is matched only by his passion for making pickles, and while he may work behind the scenes, his personality is always center stage.
Kim, Tap Room/Events
