MTHB is a great brewpub in Minneapolis - I've visited multiple times over multiple visits to MN and I've yet to be disappointed. Great atmosphere, with a nice homey restaurant in inclement weather and a great outdoor patio when it's nice. Service has been slightly on the slow side, but hey, it's a busy bar and restaurant. The quality of the beer absolutely speaks for itself and is worth a pilgrimage - not only for the top of the charts IPA but also for the adventurous one-offs. The food is good and there is plenty of it on each plate; to top it off, MTHB is well within the bounds of affordability. Absolutely must-visit if you're in the area and looking for food and/or beer.

Have been going to Town Hall almost on a weekly basis during the summer since I love the infusion beers that they put out. They are always mixing up the seasonals and have different ones on tap at least every two weeks. The Masala Mama is always a staple. The food is pretty good bar food too. Great patio in the summer time if you are looking for a place to have a beer or grab a burger on an afternoon or evening. Also the growler prices might be some of the most reasonable around for what you are getting. Growlers always come fresh and pre-filled so that is a plus

This was a gem of a spot--especially for an IPA enthusiast: their IPA is terrific AND it was on cask (alongisde a nice Oatmeal Stout). It was a beautiful June evening and there were plenty of outside tables. The service was average but friendly. My main disappointment was a lack of beer knowledge by our server. No big deal as I knew what I wanted and could help my guests but I was surprised. Will definately go back when I'm next in town. In fact, I'll be staying at the Holiday Inn next door so I can have a few extra pints/walk to my hotel.

Stopped in Thurday night for dinner and a couple of beers with friends. had the Nachos w/pork and the seasonal beer sampler. Beers where very good, Nachos wher alittle soggy and next time I will have either the beef or chicken on it.

Overall they are an OK establishment with really good beer. Food is good, service could be better, but the beer is what I go for. great stuff and very resaonable for the pricing.

The thing that I love about them over all is the beer samplers that they have. I really appreciate the ability to sample the seasonals without having to buy a full pour of them. With the sampler, I can try them all and then order the ones that I really like :)

Just got back from a recent trip to the Minneapolis area and from all the different places we visited this one had to be my favorite. Actually went there twice over a 3 1/2 day trip, probably would have went back again if it was my choice and if it was a little closer to the hotel.

The beer selection is fairly simple but I really like that muptiple selections on their seasonal brews unlike most places that only have one. All their brews were great in their own aspects I def had a favorite which was the hopimus but I didnt dislike any of them either.

The food selection is supurb, many great choices on the menu and they all tasted great!

The only thing I wasn't a big fan of was their customer service, our first time there we sat ourselfs in the bar area which was at average capacity but we waited at least 7-10 min before we even got aknowledged by any staff, seemed like most of the staff was fairly short when presented with questions as well.

Overall I really liked this place, loved the beer selection the only thing I would change is a little better serivce.

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!
