The Beer Temple

The Beer Temple started as a craft beer store founded by Chris and Margaret Quinn in 2013. We recently opened our taproom expansion in 2017, to offer a unique selection of draft beers from around the world and share our passion with our patrons. Providing beer education is a core mission of The Beer Temple. Chris is a Siebel Institute Master of Beer Styles and Evaluation, and also a Certified Cicerone. Margaret is a Certified Beer Server, and has completed classes at the Siebel Institute. They are backed by a staff who has also received training from Siebel Institute and the Cicerone Program.

The goal of education continues outside the taproom and bottleshop through The Beer Temple Podcast and Insiders Roundtable, which provide unique insights into the craft beer community. We also offer specialty services for those looking to have a stellar beer selection in their home or office bar.

No matter what you’re looking for, we aim to offer you the best beer experience possible.
