the length of the room is dominated by a long wood bar, with the rest of the space occupied by an assortment of 2 and 4 seat tables and a couple larger ones. there's also a patio outside for when the weather is nice. the bar has a big brass tower at each end with 12 taps on each and also has a pair of hand pumps for their cask conditioned beers in the center of the bar. if you somehow grew tired of the beer (which i have trouble picturing), there's an assortment of about 40-50 single malts as well as the usual bar fare.

as for beer, it's pretty much all their own (with a single guest tap, and a couple bottles). on the day of my visit the selection was their bright spot ale, west bank pub ale, masala mama ipa, hope and king scotch ale, and black h2o oatmeal stout. then there's the three seasonals, the irish porter, maibock, and india brown ale. finally we have the two cask conditioned beers, the masala mama ipa and merlot stout. i tried a bunch of them and took home a couple growlers and wasn't dissapointed by any of it.

the main room is kind of old and "worn", but very cozy. the outer wall is brick, and the main bank of windows is topped by a series of shelves containing an assortment of different growlers.

the staff was very helpful, answering the few quesitons i had about the beer easily. they were attentive, but not annoying. i spent the afternoon there, beginning with lunch, then some sampling, and ending after my wife and a couple friends joined us and we all had dinner. the staff left me alone most of the time, checking on me as my glass neared empty, and quickly stopping by when i was finished. i was very happy with the service.

the food was another bright spot too. i had a burger for lunch and our table had an assortment of dishes for dinner and we were all quite happy with them. the price was right and the food was great.

overall i was very happy with my visit to the town hall and will make a point to visit again whenever i'm in the twin cities. (2,003 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)
