The beer is great, the IPA on cask and the scotch ale are fantastic, following close behind by the single malt and the pub ale on cask are also quite good, a few rotate throughout the year either on-tap or cask with various seasonals and regulars. Summer and fall bring out some good ones including my favorite, the Double Hefe.It's diffentately worth stopping in and having a cask ale, ecspecially for the IPA but most are worth a try. Very Solid!
Growlers on the take now for $13 and a refill is $8 when ya bring em back. The food can be hit or miss, most of it is pretty good, lunch specials are always a great deal. The service comes and goes depending on the crowd and the atmospere is the same, I've been there at dead times and when its busy and neither suits the place. It needs to be about half full to just a few folks to really enjoy the place. Warmer weather brings out the patio tables which can be nice, albiet its located right on a pretty busy intersection so there's alot traffic, I like to sit in the shade closer to the back near the hotel in back, little less noisy.

Definitely a must visit when in Minneapolis. I didn't have as much time in here as I would like but I will definitely go back, if only on the strength of the Masala Mama IPA. This was an exceptional beer, a real original interpretation. I will write a seperate review for the IPA. Overall, good service, good food - I had the tenderloin, great beer. I tried the Rasberry Porter, which was not my thing, a little medicinal tasting for me, but oh that IPA. The only thing to watch out for is if you do not like cigarette smoke. There didn't appear to be a non-smoking section as they seated all the patrons in the bar. Before I knew it there was a gang of four puffing away furiously. I will definitely ask next time.

This Brew-pub was becoming my local before my son was born almost 2 years ago but I still pop in while I can. It serves good
sandwiches and some really good beer. It consists of a nice, large
front bar, a dining room in the back and a nice patio in front during
the warm months. It's located near the University so it usually has
a nice crowd but not too loud for easy conversation. My favorite beers are the IPA and the Scotch ale on cask. They have frequent
seasonals that change often, some pretty good, others passable.
I do appreciate the experimentation of the brewer. He does try
many different things.They have had sucess at the gabf lately with
a bronze for a beer this year. I recommend checking it out when you're in town......Jeff

Quite possibly the Twin Cities' best all around brew pub. Located on one of the "Seven Corners" off Washington Ave, it is situated next to the Holiday Inn and its parking structure (enabling convenient parking). Do not park at a street meter between 4-6pm weekdays as you will be ticketed. The interior boasts a unique ornately designed ceiling and two large rooms, one that features the bar itself and the other with pool tables and couch chairs. The beer is not only exceptional, but is very reasonably priced: $3.50/pint ($2.50 during Happy Hour). I have yet to have a poor beer at the Town Hall; with at least 7 offerings on tap at any given time and ever changing seasonals, there is always a reason to go back, again and again.

The main reason I go here is for the beer.
They have five standard beers: Golden Ale, Scotch Ale, IPA, Oatmeal Stout and Bitter. 2 Cask choices (sometimes it is one of the standards.) And usually 2 or 3 seasonals.
I was here on April 6, 2002 and had 7 pints. Not a one of them was even average. This is how I'd rate the beers I had:
1. Imperial Stout- Exceptional (This was the beer that was aged in oak for the GABF and won the Gold Medal in Experimental Category.)
2. IPA - Exceptional
3. Potato Stout - Very Good
4. Oatmeal Stout - Very Good
5. Pub Ale (a cask bitter) - Good
6. Scotch Ale (cask) - Good
7. Red Ale - Good
This pub seems to change their cask options every week. They are pretty experimental in their brewing as well. Some of the other very good seasonal beers I've had in the past year include: Anniversary Ale, Big Black Belgian, Cabernat Stout, Coffee Stout, Smoked Porter and Vanilla Rose (around Valentine's day).
In my opinion, this is one of the three elite brewpubs in MN (along with Sherlocks Home in Minnetonka and Fitgers in Duluth).
