With 90 sterling reviews before me in the database, the Town Hall Brewery is hardly a surprise. It is an exceptional brewpub with great atmosphere, beer, and food. A must-visit in Minneapolis and as worthy as any brewpub I've ever visited of a long-distance pilgrimage.

The decor is restrained: the brewery has a front bar, a summer patio, and a back dining room/lounge. All three are sparsely decorated, though the old building is well restored. It is inviting without being over-the-top, and the division of space keeps it from feeling too big. The windows looking out onto the street are the main source of ambient light and give the place a darkish feel.

They had nine brews on tap--the five regular offerings (IPA, dortmunder, English bitter, Scottish ale, oatmeal stout), plus their English IPA, summer wheat pale ale, milk porter, and mango mama. Add in a few carefully selected guest taps (Southern Tier, Duchesse, Rodenbach, Aechta) and the selection is really overwhelming. Every single one of the house beers was exceptional, with special kudos for the oatmeal stout, IPAs, mango mama, and summer ale. I have never encountered a brewpub with such a strong and consistent set of offerings.

Food and service are both fine, and prices are reasonable.
The Town Hall--like Fitger's up in Duluth, MN--takes the traditional brewpub and does it exceptionally well. This is an ideal place for drinking great beer. (1,418 characters)

Went here on a Monday evening and it was dead. Probably not the best night to gauge it off, but it was very dry and kind of boring ambiance.

The beers were served okay, they were served in pint glasses with very little head. House beers were solid in flavor however.

Service was terrible, but I chalk that mostly up to Monday night.

Selection was excellent, lots of great choices and good prices. (400 characters)

A British style pub with an exceptionally strong selections of taps. The house brews are all good or better. In fact, I’d characterize all that I’ve sampled as above average for style. Nice wooden bar and plenty of indoor and (in summer) outdoor seating. (260 characters)

this was a major destination for us, and our first stop in the twin cities. i was stoked to finally have the highly acclaimed masala mama ipa, and while that wasnt my favorite beer here, it sure is nice. it looks like quite an old building, dark and rather european on the inside, with lots of wood features and a full bar. more of a restaurant feel than a brewery feel, and plenty of outside seating. they had maybe ten or twelve beers pouring, the andys ale nelson pale was my favorite, a total winner and very unique beer, but all that we tasted were very very good. i had an awesome sandwich too, a walleye hoagie. i wanted to get a taste of the region, and this food did not disappoint. tons of food, very fairly priced. the service was just okay, friendly enough and prompt and all of that, but seemingly uninterested in the place or the beers or anything. an institution of sorts, very much enjoyed the overall experience. its far better than the sum of its parts i think, sometimes ratings dont do justice to a place, and thats how i felt about the town hall. fantastic beer, and thats what its really all about. (1,120 characters)
