Evanston's new brewery, Temperance Beer, debuted its first four beers this Wednesday at Prairie Moon.
Founder and Evanston native Josh Gilbert is brewing the beers in a warehouse at 2000 Dempster St., where he eventually hopes to open a tap room and beer garden. In this video produced by ECTV, he talks to Lisa Degliantoni of the show "The Reporters."
Wednesday marked "the first day beer commercially produced in Evanston [was] for sale in Evanston," Gilbert told Patch via e-mail.
Temperance Brewery's first four beers were National Anthem, which is made with red and white wheats and blueberries; Smittytown, an extra special bitter; Root Down, a robust porter; and Restless Years, a rye pale ale.
