I've been going here all through College at The U,and is always my favorite place to go when im downtown to start my evenings. Like others have said great beer selection, a bunch of regular taps 4 or so, 2 to 3 seasonals, a few guest brews, and a cask .Growlers are available on some of the brews,prices vary but are a good value. Food is what it is, above average bar food, but still pretty tasty, can be really packed Friday and Saturday night, i always found the midweek evenings work best. pretty good happy hour as well, Happy Hour:Monday to Saturday 3pm to 6:30pm $3.75 House pints, 4 cask pints, 10:50 pitchers

I love having town hall brewery in my backyard. Everyday taps they have are really really good. The seasonal taps they have are phenomenal and change weekly you have to make sure you check beforehand to see what they have. They are also really good about updating their facebook page when new tap does become available.
As far as growler fills go they usually have 2 to 4 of their everyday beers and a couple seasonal beers available for growler purchase.
I would consider their food to be average to good but considering most people go for their beer I think their food is above average compared to other bar food.
Honestly if you are in minneapolis and you enjoy beer you have to stop at town hall brewery because it's the only place you can get their beer and it's worth the trip.

THB is probably my favorite go to bar in Minneapolis. THB has a very nice atmosphere especially if you have the chance to get one of the lounge chairs in the back with a few friends. It is by far one of the most beer geek friendly bars in the twin cities.
Service is usually good but can get a bit slow on later at night especially on the weekends when the college crowd floods the 7 corners area that THB is situated in.
Food is not awesome but it is better then the average bite in the area. The 7 corners burger with the sweet potato is always a hit in my book. They have more then just burgers though. You can also get some good pasta dishes, salads, and tasty sandwiches.
THB of corse always has some great in house brews on. Of course they always have their 5 regulars on(Masala Mama, Pub Ale, H2O Oatmeal Stout, Hope King Scotch Ale, Dortmunder) but they also serve at least 2 seasonal house brews as well as guest taps that will cover a range of styles.
Overall THB is one of the best places in the TC to get a bite to eat and some good beer. Prices are reasonable and quality is good. If your ever in the Twin Cities area this is a must hit for any beer lover.

This great brewery is located near the University of Minnesota. I came here solely to check out the world famous Masala Mama IPA as well as their other beers. This brewery has everything - a broad lineup of interesting, creative beers. At least one outstanding IPA + Multiple beers on cask, preferably including the aforementioned IPA + An outdoor beer garden for long summer nights + A pool table + A well-crafted, expansive hardwood bar with plenty of space and a comfortable feel. + Friendly, helpful staff. This is in a historical building. I had the hamburger and fries. While the food was just okay, the beer was superior and the only reason I visited. I was able to buy three growlers at only $13 each! What a deal!

Made the trip from the University Aquatic Center across the river to the Seven Corners when it was about 10 degrees out. Spring came early in Miiinneesoooota this year. I was lucky enough to grab a table right next to the bar with 4 buddies of mine.
The first thing that jumps out at me is the comfortable atmosphere. Even when the place was completely crowded, it wasn't too loud or so stuffed that you couldn't move fairly easily through the bar area.
There are 5 regular offerings on tap, which are available in 6-oz (I think) tasters for $7 for the whole lineup. Nice. I went with the seasonal/cask sampler which had 3 seasonals (non -bal beers) and two cask beers, one of which was Masala Mama, for $9. These taster/samplers are the best deal I've seen for this caliber of beer. Unfortunately Czar Jack and Port Frost were not part of this, forcing me to tick them separately while paying for full 10-oz pours (still only 6 bucks/ea).
There are also some guest taps...La Folie was on, but really, if you are only there for a day or two, stick with the MTHB brews. You won't be disappointed.
I had one of the best bar pretzels I have ever tasted while I was there. Two of the guys I was with got fish tacos and the black and bleu burger. From what they said, those offerings were good as well.
Growler fills are extremely reasonable at $13 including the glass for the Masala Mama. While I was there, they were also doing Czar Jack growlers for $28.50, but since I only brought a roll aboard, I only had room for one growler...IDIOT!

Whelp, my ass done got schooled by the airlines, stranding me in MinnesOOOta for 2 days (Airlines 1, Tick 0) while sending my bAAYg back to California (Airlines 2, Tick 0) while I was left in a place where it was snowy and 10 degrees, while traveling dressed for warm and sunny North Carolina or California (Airlines 3, Tick 0).
After buying some clothes at Mall of America, I made my way over to this joint. This is basically a standard bar inside more or less, average-sized with nice decor and a comfortable feel. There were 5 standard beers on tap (available as a sampler), a couple seasonal offerings, a barrel aged beer (Honey V), and 1800 IPA and Masala Mama on cask. It's almost too obvious to say, but the quality of beers here is excellent, easily in the top 10 percent of brewpubs you will visit. There are also some good guest taps on. I was tempted to finish with a bottle of Grain Belt Premium just for the tick, but I spared my dignity and passed on it in the end. There is also a nice selection of whiskey if you're into non-beer malt-based drinks or want to taste something that you've had a beer aged in a barrel of.
The food menu includes a lot of "bar food" that is fairly well-done. I was hoping for a Juicy Lucy, but sadly they don't serve those here. Prices for food and beer are about average.
I was there on a Tuesday night and we got pretty good service, but it's hard to say how it would be on a more crowded night.
So how did it all end up? I got 8 new beer ticks, 1 new place tick, and 1 glass of Masala Mama on cask. Game over! Tick 10, Airlines 3. He shoots he scores! If I ever get back to MinnesOOOta, this place will definitely be on my list of stops.

Stopped here the day after the St. Paul Beer Festival. Nice clean brewery with the charm of an older building and thought the service was very good. Everyone knows about the must have beer had which was excellent, but thought most of the line up was nothing spectacular, although very good. Remembered a few beers not on tap but I wanted to try. For that, the atmosphere, and the highly regarded IPA I will be back, and also ponder the bus route from there to see a Twins game and more prominently, their new stadium. To this point, this is the best Minneapolis has for a brewpub.

I was at a business trip in Minneapolis and was stoked to convince everyone to go here for dinner one night. It was definitely not something that I wanted to miss out on while I was in town.
Atmosphere: The place was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. Looked like a pretty standard brewpub; a bar on one side, restaurant on the other. My group and I were on the restaurant side due to the size of the party. We all had a good time, for sure.
Quality: All of the food served was high quality, and of course the beers were too. I wasn't disappointed.
Service: Service was good, considering there was 12 people in the group. Always had beer in my hand, so I wasn't complaining. The food seemed like it got out quickly.
Selection: Awesome selection, of course they had their standard beers, seasonals, and some other specialty nuggets that sounded great. I got a Masala Mama, Twisted Reality, Cocnut Mango IPA, and finished off with their Black H20 Oatmeal Stout. All were either very good or excellent.
Price: I'd call prices reasonable. I got the beer and a meal for $40. Pretty good for what I got in return.

Stopped by for lunch today.
MTHB appears to be a small size pub when viewed from the outside, but it turned out to be pretty good size once we got inside. There is a back dining area and smallish lounge when you first walk in, as well as a nice size bar area and another dining room to the left. There is a lot of wood in the pub, and the place really has the feel of an old English style pub. The place has an informal, very relaxed, easy going vibe, and seems like a great place to hang out with a beer or three.
As for the beer, tried the sampler of the seasonals, and all of them were pretty good I thought. A blueberry tripel was my favorite, but enjoyed the amber IPA and blueberry porter as well. Also sampled Masala Mama on cask, which I thought an enjoyable (if not exactly mindblowing) IPA. In addition to the 10 house beers available, the brewpub also had 5 guest beers available, which this day included SN celebration, Great Divide fresh hop, left hand imperial stout, etc. So all things considered, I thought the beer selection here pretty solid, with the quality level very high.
Service was pretty good. Our server was pleasant and efficient, and could answer most basic questions about the beer here. Food was your basic pub grub, but everything was done pretty well I thought.
All things considered, I enjoyed our visit to MTHB, and would happily come here again. Beer and food were both solid, in a pleasant, relaxed setting.

Such an injustice - this was my 201st brewpub/brewery visit and I spent my landmark 200th visit at a (respectable) chain two days earlier.
The injustice of missing my connecting flight in Minneapolis and having to stay over a night, head downtown to take in MTHB is what I consider equal justice and long overdue.
Found parking next door by the Holiday Inn multi-level parking garage. Not much in the way of free on street parking in this somewhat busy area on a Saturday evening around 9 pm. I was later told by a very friendly couple at the bar that this area is considered part of the University of Minnesota campus which explained a lot of the younger yet mature crowd.
I settled in at an awkward seat at the corner of the end of the bar where the eye-level taps had me speaking to the waitresses chest.
Began with the excellent and experimental seasonal sampler...
Poblano Hefe and a smoked hefe. Both were delicate and very well done. Smoked hefe could have been a tad more pronounced but I imagine it's easy to overdo. The pumpkin had great mouthfeel and some of the best pumpkin beer flavor I've ever had. Very subjective here and the nutmeg (or seasoning) may be too much for some. Blueberry porter convinced me to take a stab at the concept at a homebrew level. Cask English IPA rounded out the sampler. Dissapointed that they were out of the seasonal fresh hop.
Ate a very well done Greek salad with a Masala Mama and then finished the evening with a half pint of the oatmeal stout.
Enjoyed the company of a young couple who worked at General Mills. Talked a lot of shop and shared some of my beer travel stories with them.
I didn't see the dining area. The bar area was large with high ceilings and provided easy access to the sidewalk seating which was crowded to a ~50 degree evening.
The beers were all exceptional and MTHB has made my list of top eight brewpubs in North America.
