The First Five Bottle Release
Dec

The First Five Bottle Release

To toast our first five years, we came up with something special: we took Today is the Day, our Belgian-Style Quadrupel, aged for a year in whiskey, rum, and port barrels, and added ripe black currants before bottling. The result is a gorgeous beer, garnet in color, with aromas of chocolate cherry cordials, and a luxuriously long finish of tart raspberries, vanilla, and port — most certainly a beer for celebrations.

We are releasing this 5th anniversary beer on the 5th anniversary of the day our Tap Room opened, so please come raise a glass with us on December 20 to celebrate the first five and muse upon what the next five may bring!

Mad Moxie will pop up in the Tap Room with delicious bites from 5-9 PM! Plus, we’ll tap a special keg or two….

This beer will only be available in the Tap Room. Bottles go on sale at 4 PM. Limit 6 bottles per customer.

Rebirth Brass Band Live on the Lot

Rebirth Brass Band Live on the Lot

SPACE & Temperance Beer Co. present Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band in a special outdoor summer concert in the parking lot at Temperance Beer Co., located at Dempster and Dodge in Evanston. All GA tickets are outdoors. VIP tickets include 2 drink tickets and access to all access to viewing platform and tap room. Rain or shine. Doors open at 6pm with food trucks and DJ sets. Rebirth show time 8pm. Curfew 10pm.

See event FAQ here.

ALL PURCHASES AT EVENT ARE CASH ONLY.

TICKETS HERE!

Whether seen on HBO’s Treme or at their legendary Tuesday night gig at The Maple Leaf, Grammy-winning Rebirth Brass Band is a true New Orleans institution. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world. While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they’ve also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.” In the wake of the sometimes- stringent competition amongst New Orleans brass bands, Rebirth is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down.

The Drop DIPA Bottle Release Party

The Drop DIPA Bottle Release Party

Our Double IPA is back, and this time it's in bottles – 22 oz bombers, to be exact.

Smooth and deceivingly drinkable, The Drop is the feeling of complete abandon, total oneness with the music — the height of the party. It's the apex on the dance floor, the ecstatic release the DJ lays down.

For the bottle release, we'll have Funk Trunk Records laying down old-school funk on vinyl starting at noon. Then DJ Teebot will get you up on the dancefloor as the sun sets.

If you buy a case, you get to take home The Drop Spiegelau IPA glass.

Over 3 pounds of 4 different hops per barrel balance the rich, slightly sweet malt goodness. This year, we're adding the new hop, Loral, to the mix.

Like those fleeting moments of euphoria, this beer won’t wait — drink The Drop fresh to taste this Double IPA at its apex.

Earth Day Eve Trikonasana
Apr

Earth Day Eve Trikonasana

Our series, “Temperance Trikonasana” pairs beer with yoga and a cause. Jenny Arrington brings her Yoga Blend class to the brewery once a month. This month we're celebrating on the evening of Earth Day! Accompanying us with acoustic guitar will be Jonah Brooks from the School of Rock Evanston.

Yoga Blend brings together Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Yin Yoga to create a unique, total-body experience. Breath and chanting begin and end each class, and we experience a gong bath during savasana to ensure you leave class feeling revitalized and seeing your infinite potential. Once our bodies and minds are opened, we have a beer together and learn about the local charity we are supporting this month.

The cost is $15, which includes a post-savasana beer. 21+ only, first-come, first-served. All levels welcome. Please bring your own mat.

Temperance Trikonasana is a regular event on the third Saturday of each month, with proceeds going to a different charity each class. This month's proceeds go to Evanston Public Library.
