Good beer, decent food, some good Scotch and friendly people. What more cold you ask for? One thing would be for them to assign a style or description to the beers after they're finished. I had a Maibock that was nothing close to style. It was more like an IPA and I had to taste and smell deep beyond the hops to even notice that it was a lager. It was actually a really good beer, I was just prepared for something else due to the style descriptor.

The night I was here, I went to Town Hall first, it was a madhouse, it was quiet and calm here. I didn't care for the building or decore, but I can't really complain about anything either, because I had a great time. I finished off the evening with some tallisker.

I can only say that this place + old friends = a great evening. I hope this review is good enough for you. (828 characters)

Tiny place, decent food, friendly service (but very hit or miss - though they buy you beer if they do you wrong), very solid year round beers and exceptional seasonal stuff. High gravity and BA brews are outrageously expensive though. (234 characters)

My absolute favorite place to drink beer! I really enjoys their beers plus the food is awesome and the atmosphere is very friendly. Whenever I'm in the Twin Cities I stop in and I always end up in a good conversation with one of the locals. (241 characters)
