Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery is a cool brewpub that is worth a visit because of it’s proximity to the many other beer bars in the area. We tried both of the beers they had on cask and they were great. They have a good growler filling program, and their wall of growlers from other places is impressive. These guys are linked in to the beer geek vibe.

Downtown location close to the University. Old brick building with a nice patio. Beautiful tin ceiling, long old bar, casual atmosphere. The music playing was wonderful, like listening to someone's cd collection. Service was fast and very friendly. They didn't have the IPA we wanted on cask but the Scotch ale on cask was very good. The food was outstanding, we had pesto mac, roast pork sandwich and southwest wraps. The only negative was the BBQ sauce for the roast pork sand was too spicy. The sandwich was fantastic though. We would go back here if we're ever in Minneapolis again.

These guys spent a lot of money on this place and it shows. Lots of dark woods and fancy appointments and of course, it's gorgeous. The only reason I gave a 3 for atmosphere was that it's just not what I like a brewery/taproom to be. It's just a little too hoity toity. I'm sure the food is great but expensive. On a positive note, the beer selection is outstanding and I loved the Lift Bridge Chestnut Hill they had on tap. The Festivus 2012 on the other hand was awful. A chocolate covered banana does not belong in a beer.

Great outdoor patio seating. Old school feel. Food is quite good for a brew pub and it has an excellent location. Service is rather slow on the patio but mainly do do servers have ten table sections. Beer is awesome and the regular and seasonal flights are a must.

Has a ton of reviews already, but I love this place, and have for over a decade. It's everything a classic brewpub should be.

Atmosphere: Small-ish to Medium sized inside, long bar, dark wood, windows on one side, a dozen or so tables (and I think there's a back area for more seating if/when it's busy.) It was deserted inside around 11:10am on a Friday, while the outside patio seating area was about half occupied.

Quality: Town Hall is awesome. Delicious standards: the Masala Mama IPA is always available on cask and CO2, and is DELICIOUS, especially on cask. Fun, interesting specialties. Had a very nice Belgian strong (a tripel? a quad? I forget.) Plenty of choices: about five or six standards, about five

Service: excellent! My bartender was apparently somewhat new, but was great, and the guy who seemed to be kind of training him was also great. Pleasant, efficient, responsive.

Food: didn't try it this time around, but remember liking it well enough in the past.

p.s. Their website is horrific, Flash heavy nonsense. Newsflash: here's what people want in a restaurant website: hours, location, menu, specials, events. Almost nothing else. And skip the weird clicking noises as you move your mouse around.

A few years ago I took a brewing course. We had to do a project on a beer topic of our choice. I opted to do a short film and picked a brewery near by school - Town Hall. The staff was so nice and friendly. The beer is made in a pristine location, that stays immaculately clean surprisingly.

I went the following week for dinner and their wait staff is lovely, friendly, personable, and knowledgable. If you have a question about food or a drink they are more than welcome to tell you what would suit your palette. And the food and beer are amazing. I am a huge fan of their house pretzels and the Maslala Mama. Overall my experience at Town Hall Brewery is always a good one.

My wife and I are Town Hall regulars. We love the service (but I admit, we know all of the servers and bartenders because we are there so often).

Food is very good bar food and reasonable prices.

Beer is ranges from very good to fantastic. Always something new and interesting plus their regular beers are very good.

If you sit at the bar you can nearly always strike up a conversation and meet some very interesting people.

Finally, in the summer a great patio is the perfect place to enjoy a wonderful fruit infusion beer (one of their specialities!)

My wife took me to Town Hall on a busy Saturday night for my birthday. It took longer than expected to be acknowledged by a server or hostess. I was getting close to leaving (after almost ten minutes of standing at the "Please wait to be seated" sign) when someone finally told us she would be right with us. It took a few more minutes until we were seated.

The server came by almost immediately to get our drinks. From that point on, the service was amazing! The food was great. My wife had the mango chicken sandwich and I had the walleye sandwich. We had BBQ chicken wings to start off. The beer was the real gem here, though. I was disappointed that the vanilla porter ran out about a half hour before we got there, but was pleased with the Masala Mama and the Hope and King.

The price point was perfect. For an appetizer, two entrees, a flight of five beers, and two pints, we got out with a total cost (including tip) of less than $50.

I would love to try this again, especially when Czar Jack, Mango Mama, or Three-Hour Tour are being served!

Visited here on 2011-11-18

What an inviting place with high, punched-tin ceilings and an L-shaged bar in the front. There's another bar and dining room in the rear next to the glassed-in brewing equipment.

The bartender was friendly, informative and the right amount of attentive. I ate at the bar and had the pulled pork sandwich with fries. Both were delicious and very reasonably priced. A good pub food menu.

Their own beers range from world-class to very good and there are some good beers from other brewers.

If you are spending the night, there's a convenient Holiday Inn and a parking garage right next door.

Visited 10/22/11 after Darkness Day

This has become an annual stop for me and my friends for post Darkness lunch. Quality establishment and well worth the trip.

Atmosphere is relaxed, it has never really been crowded when I've been there. Cool old building, well lit, kinda grungy bathrooms though.

Quality of the beer is outstanding, I tried lots of styles, all good. Masala Mama does NOT disappoint.

Service was prompt and friendly every time I have been. All the servers are well versed with the beer selection.

Food is pretty good. I've had several of their sandwiches, all good.

Pretty cheap compared to comparable brewpubs in my area.

This is a must stop if you are in the MPLS area.
