It’s damn near impossible to find, but once you get to the Temperance taproom, you won’t want to leave. There’s a handy aerial map of the location posted on Temperance’s website, which we consulted after circling the streets around the brewery a few times without seeing it. Once there, grab a seat at the wraparound bar or communal tables, or play a game of shuffleboard, which we opted to do since all the seats were filled. The crowd skews older, and mostly consisted of groups of professor types drinking pints while digging into cartons of Chinese food (there’s no food, but you can order delivery or bring snacks in). Temperance’s beers, which are available on tap around the area, are offered at the taproom in pints or as part of a flight. Try the Smittytown Tart, a tarter version of the Smittytown ESB that’s made with a hefty dose of cherries. Come nice weather, the garage door will open onto a patio, and the extra seats will definitely be welcome.
