Praise for our...



Eater Chicago rated our Tap Room as one of the best in Chicago!

"Named after the fact that Evanston was once a dry city and the birthplaces of Prohibition, Temperance's taproom celebrates the near suburb's newfound fondness for booze by serving a wide variety of fresh-brewed beer styles, from the Gatecrasher IPA to Greenwood Beach Blonde."

RootsRated gave us a shoutout in their article, "5 Pairings of Chicago Bike Rides and Craft Beers."

Chicago Mag rated our Trikonasana series 2017's best "yoga class with fringe benefits"!

The Chicago Tribune described our yoga classes as "a light, fun social scene where loose limbs and tasty brews give way to a less inhibited crowd and a relaxed vibe."

Fitt Chicago said, "Evanston’s Temperance Brewery sees our yoga + beer equation and adds one more element to make it even better: a good cause."



Chicago Reader rated us at one of the top brewery tours in the city!

"The name of this congenial taproom and brewery in a onetime Montgomery Ward distribution center is an homage to Evanston's status as a formerly dry city and home to the Woman's Christian Temperance Union."

Daily North Shore gave us a shoutout in their article, "Take a Craft Beer Tour on the North Shore."

The community vibe is palpable at Temperance’s taproom, with a big communal-seating outdoor deck in the summer.

Temperance was voted as Best Brewery in the Suburbs, tying with Sketchbook Brewing Co. in Make It Better's Best of 2018 Awards! 

We are proud to have won this award for 2017 & 2018.


RootsRated deemed Temperance and the Evanston Lakefront Path as the best bike ride and craft beer pairing in Evanston!

"...a great riding destination followed by a place to stop for unique, locally brewed beer."


ABV Chicago rated Greenwood Beach one of their favorite Chicago Cooler Beers!


"Looks like a sangria in the glass, but tastes a little something like craisins with significant sweetness, bread and caramel malt, banana esters, and a little phenolic clove bite. It’s one of the many reasons you should visit their Evanston taproom regularly." - ABV Chicago, Belgian Fest 2016
