The New Saloon // Candidates on Tap

  • Temperance Beer Co

Back in the 19th century, "more than the beer, saloons provided a gathering place in a nation with little public space for working-class men to argue the issues or meet the candidates."* 

With no fewer than five candidates competing in the Evanston mayoral primary on Feb 28, 2017, we decided it was the time to bring the saloon back (this time with women). Come meet your candidates, ask questions, and throw one or two back in an open forum with a healthy exchange of ideas. And plenty of beer.

Now's the time to get to know the candidates and see which one you'd most want to have a beer with.

"What we need, more than tweets or memes, is the kind of civic life that transpires when men and women gather face to face and, as a fan of old saloons put it, 'political matters ebb and flow free as froth on the beer.'"*

We'll be sure to have Might Meets Right, our most political beer, on tap that night.

*Jon Grinspan, "The Saloon, America’s Forgotten Democratic Institution," New York Times, Nov 26, 2016.

For more back story, the idea for this event began on Pass The Salt
(start at 4:00)

Mayoral Candidates:

Gary Gaspard for Evanston Mayor
Steve Hagerty for Evanston Mayor
Brian Miller for Mayor of Evanston
Jeff Smith for Evanston
Mark Tendam
