The place is a beautiful building. Not sure about this part of town, but it looks nice and I'm a sucker for old brick buildings. Screw the breweries in warehouses.

The service is excellent and attentive if not that knowledgeable about the beer. They did have some nice pointers, and that's far better than most.

Selection isn't huge, but it's awesome. They must do some trades to get a few of the one-offs they get from other breweries. How did they get a keg of Deschutes here? Also, all their beers are amazing.

Food was pretty good - I had the fish and chips, and it was the best fish and chips I've ever had.

Value is excellent - you can get 5-5 oz sample glasses of their year round brews for $7, or 5-5oz samples of their seasonals and special brews for $9. Awesome. Food is reasonable, too.

A- Atmosphere has an old timey feel. Lots of old black and white photographs, chalkboards with current beers listed. A couple tvs for watching the football on.
Q- Good beers, taste fresh, served in clean glassware.
Ser- The service seems dependant on who you get. Some people, including a young fella seem eager. Others are quick, but don't seem all that friendly.
Sel- About 8 of their beers on tap, about five guest taps and a small bottle collection.
F- The Seven Corners Burger is recommendable. The french fries are forgetable.
A great place to get a beer. Definitely a place to go to get a pint.

Stopped by Town Hall while in Minneapolis for Darkness day, no way I was not going to try their beer. Not as big as I was expecting but it has a very low key atmosphere and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The beer selection was awesome with year-rounds and seasonals, including Mango Mama! Only ordered some pretzels for appetizers and they were fantastic, especially with a hoppy beer. Definitely a place anyone can visit and have a good time, knowledgeable wait/bar staff, and try to get their early as it gets full quick.

Came here on the way home from St. Paul, MN and stayed and visited the BrewPub since the owners were enjoyed the Vikings game as I reviewed some of my beer. Being in the 7 Corners (West Bank) area, this place had a cool painting of their bar from the outside. Here goes my review...

Awesome Boston style in the inside and homely. When you walk in, the bar is on your right with tables and viewing of Cedar Ave and then you can go into a back room where there are dart boards, a pool table, and then a display of their micro-brewery. One thing I noticed from being in here, everything was awesome but the restrooms needed work BIG TIME! Weird too... Thought that the place was very vintage but they need to invest in re-modeling and cleaning these up...

Service was fantastic! Help from both the owners and staff the entire day! Everyone on staff really made me feel like a part of the place and made it a comfortable time.

Selection was without a doubt, one of the top I've seen from a BrewPub! 10 of theirs was available plus two cask offerings. They also had an impressive Guest Tap lists for both beer and ciders.

Enjoyed 7 of their brews and then had their Bleu Burger w/ Bacon & Sweet Potato Fries on the side. This place should enter this into a Burger Contest! That good.

I came here specifically to enjoy the Mango Mama but they just got rid of it on Thursday... Their selection still kept me around and I'm glad I did. Come check this place out! One of my top 10 places now because of the environment, selection, and awesome service!

I've been to Town Hall a half dozen times, and have never left unsatisfied. The food is good (goat cheese nachos with chicken, anyone?), the beer is better (Masala Mama is the main draw on most nights), and the atmosphere is as good as just about anywhere I've been. The guest taps are normally respectable, but there's often little need to stray away from Town Hall's own creations. Try a few, and you'll realize that these guys obviously know what they're doing.

I hope they keep it up for a LONG time, because although I don't spend too many evenings at the bar anymore, this is one of my top choices when I do go out for drinks.

Visited Town Hall Brewery last evening....and was very please. The brewery is located in a old building that has a beautiful ornamental ceiling. The bar was tight, but not too tight and there were number of tables and bar chairs to host a great Tuesday evening crowd. The quality of the beer and food was very good...I though the beer was great. I had the buffalo Chicken pasta....it was too spicy to eat much of it....but it was very good. The service was great and very attentive and seemingly knowledgeble. The selection of both beer and food was decent. There was five year round selections and five seasonals...all offering something different. The pretzels and fried green beans were nice and see above regarding my entre. The cost for six of us was $250....many drinks and everyone had a salad with their dinner.

The front entrance can only be determined by the people walking through it; a narrow, antique silver door with a porthole window on the side of the building. It was much smaller than I expected it to be, a historic looking building, with what appears to be the original fixtures and sky-high tin type ceilings. The paint is probably the 10th layer the walls have seen and the ripped chairs in the pool lounge are quite likely originals. But this classic and authentic feel is quite appealing.

I did not know what to expect for patrons here, I knew I did not want another college pick up spot, and surprisingly, this ten minute walk from downtown Minneapolis took me straight into rural Minnesota. Bad perms and mom jeans, baseball caps and flannels, hooded sweatshirts, blue collar workers, Nordic blondes in ponytails. The occasional self-conscious hipster freshman and dad in a golf shirt made an appearance, making it a Rockwell portrait of beer drinking Minnesotans. I was quite amused that it literally sounded like the voices and clanking dishes on their website. The servers were extremely polite and attentive, taking their job very seriously. When a bus boy accidentally started clearing my dishes when I went to the bathroom, he was apologetic and brought me a fresh glass of water and offered a new plate of fries--which, btw, had one of the best house dipping sauces I have ever had.

I of course, had to have their 5-5oz. brews sampler--for only $7, and was pleased to note they also offer growlers. All five of the beers were well crafted. I won't be hopping on the Masala Mama train simply because I do not care for IPA's, but that little guy had a lot of zest. The Hope & King and Black H2O Oatmeal will be the brews I for which I will return. Both had excellent viscosity, luxurious heads, and richly balanced flavor. There are many more food items, and seasonal taps to try, and I am looking forward to getting to know Town Hall better!

So this place looks cool-- it reminds me of a really upscale piano bar inside of a fancy, old, and busy train station. A huge clock hangs on the wall, surrounded by nice woodworking and sleek black granite-looking material (Formica?). It looks like a tastefully modernized historical landmark building.

We sat at the bar and I gleefully ticked a few beers-- the Masalla Mama didn't blow me away, but the Mango Mama and the guest taps were great.

This is one of those small breweries that really stands out in an increasingly over-crowded sea of small breweries. The atmosphere was great: classy an sophisticated enough that I would be happy to take dates here, but relaxed enough that I could see myself stopping in for a beer after work. If I went to UMM, I'm pretty sure you would catch me studying at a table in the back with a pint of something in my had! This may sound odd, but I could really see Hemingway sitting in this place...

The food was quite nice, albeit a slightly standard array of pub food.
Anyway... The bartender was very friendly and talked about beer with us.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn about 200 feet away, and had a blast, though the hotel was a bit pricey at $115 per night...

The merchandise was a little pricey, but the food and beer seemed on-par with other small brewpub experiences. Everyone should buy a nonic pint from this place.

This is definitely my go to place; I try to visit once or twice every week. The beer is always top notch, seems like every week there’s a new infusion or new beer of some sort. The atmosphere is very welcoming. You can come in and have a beer on your own without interruptions, or you can converse with the bartenders who have always been knowledgeable and willing to help with any questions. The food is always top notch as well, although I mainly only come for the beer selection. The patio is a very nice option, plenty of space and tables, although the service is a bit slower when sitting outside. Overall it’s a great place to visit, the beer selection is always top notch.

Just made a trip up to Minnesota recently and knew I had to visit this highly reviewed establishment!

Basically, this brewpub is great. If you are looking for an upscaled brewpub where you won't look strange in either shorts and a t-shirt or a suit, than this is your place. I also really liked how the establishment is split into two halves each with their own personalities.

The side that has the distillers is along the lines of a sports bar. Tables and bar seating are abundant with a great glass wall that allow you witness first hand where your beer comes from. A few televisions are located in this section, but not placed everywhere maintaining that upscaled feel.

On the other side, where I spent most of my time ordering food and drinks, is where I feel this brewery flexes is uniqueness muscles. The ceiling is copper that has been covered in navy blue paint that has since been worn down in a number of locations. Molded picture frames cover the walls as well as enough beer memorabilia to maintain the beer friendly atmosphere. You feel like this business has been located in this location for a hundred years which I absolutely love.

Now down to the nitty gritty, 20+ taps on hand with a price that won't break the bank, solid menu with good unique food, above average service that keeps the good times rolling.

All in all I highly recommend this place and it is a must for anyone who loves beer.

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!

Whelp, my ass done got schooled by the airlines, stranding me in MinnesOOOta for 2 days (Airlines 1, Tick 0) while sending my bAAYg back to California (Airlines 2, Tick 0) while I was left in a place where it was snowy and 10 degrees, while traveling dressed for warm and sunny North Carolina or California (Airlines 3, Tick 0).

After buying some clothes at Mall of America, I made my way over to this joint. This is basically a standard bar inside more or less, average-sized with nice decor and a comfortable feel. There were 5 standard beers on tap (available as a sampler), a couple seasonal offerings, a barrel aged beer (Honey V), and 1800 IPA and Masala Mama on cask. It's almost too obvious to say, but the quality of beers here is excellent, easily in the top 10 percent of brewpubs you will visit. There are also some good guest taps on. I was tempted to finish with a bottle of Grain Belt Premium just for the tick, but I spared my dignity and passed on it in the end. There is also a nice selection of whiskey if you're into non-beer malt-based drinks or want to taste something that you've had a beer aged in a barrel of.

The food menu includes a lot of "bar food" that is fairly well-done. I was hoping for a Juicy Lucy, but sadly they don't serve those here. Prices for food and beer are about average.

I was there on a Tuesday night and we got pretty good service, but it's hard to say how it would be on a more crowded night.

So how did it all end up? I got 8 new beer ticks, 1 new place tick, and 1 glass of Masala Mama on cask. Game over! Tick 10, Airlines 3. He shoots he scores! If I ever get back to MinnesOOOta, this place will definitely be on my list of stops.

Stopped here the day after the St. Paul Beer Festival. Nice clean brewery with the charm of an older building and thought the service was very good. Everyone knows about the must have beer had which was excellent, but thought most of the line up was nothing spectacular, although very good. Remembered a few beers not on tap but I wanted to try. For that, the atmosphere, and the highly regarded IPA I will be back, and also ponder the bus route from there to see a Twins game and more prominently, their new stadium. To this point, this is the best Minneapolis has for a brewpub.

I was at a business trip in Minneapolis and was stoked to convince everyone to go here for dinner one night. It was definitely not something that I wanted to miss out on while I was in town.

Atmosphere: The place was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. Looked like a pretty standard brewpub; a bar on one side, restaurant on the other. My group and I were on the restaurant side due to the size of the party. We all had a good time, for sure.

Quality: All of the food served was high quality, and of course the beers were too. I wasn't disappointed.

Service: Service was good, considering there was 12 people in the group. Always had beer in my hand, so I wasn't complaining. The food seemed like it got out quickly.

Selection: Awesome selection, of course they had their standard beers, seasonals, and some other specialty nuggets that sounded great. I got a Masala Mama, Twisted Reality, Cocnut Mango IPA, and finished off with their Black H20 Oatmeal Stout. All were either very good or excellent.

Price: I'd call prices reasonable. I got the beer and a meal for $40. Pretty good for what I got in return.

Stopped by for lunch today.

MTHB appears to be a small size pub when viewed from the outside, but it turned out to be pretty good size once we got inside. There is a back dining area and smallish lounge when you first walk in, as well as a nice size bar area and another dining room to the left. There is a lot of wood in the pub, and the place really has the feel of an old English style pub. The place has an informal, very relaxed, easy going vibe, and seems like a great place to hang out with a beer or three.

As for the beer, tried the sampler of the seasonals, and all of them were pretty good I thought. A blueberry tripel was my favorite, but enjoyed the amber IPA and blueberry porter as well. Also sampled Masala Mama on cask, which I thought an enjoyable (if not exactly mindblowing) IPA. In addition to the 10 house beers available, the brewpub also had 5 guest beers available, which this day included SN celebration, Great Divide fresh hop, left hand imperial stout, etc. So all things considered, I thought the beer selection here pretty solid, with the quality level very high.

Service was pretty good. Our server was pleasant and efficient, and could answer most basic questions about the beer here. Food was your basic pub grub, but everything was done pretty well I thought.

All things considered, I enjoyed our visit to MTHB, and would happily come here again. Beer and food were both solid, in a pleasant, relaxed setting.

Such an injustice - this was my 201st brewpub/brewery visit and I spent my landmark 200th visit at a (respectable) chain two days earlier.

The injustice of missing my connecting flight in Minneapolis and having to stay over a night, head downtown to take in MTHB is what I consider equal justice and long overdue.

Found parking next door by the Holiday Inn multi-level parking garage. Not much in the way of free on street parking in this somewhat busy area on a Saturday evening around 9 pm. I was later told by a very friendly couple at the bar that this area is considered part of the University of Minnesota campus which explained a lot of the younger yet mature crowd.

I settled in at an awkward seat at the corner of the end of the bar where the eye-level taps had me speaking to the waitresses chest.

Began with the excellent and experimental seasonal sampler...
Poblano Hefe and a smoked hefe. Both were delicate and very well done. Smoked hefe could have been a tad more pronounced but I imagine it's easy to overdo. The pumpkin had great mouthfeel and some of the best pumpkin beer flavor I've ever had. Very subjective here and the nutmeg (or seasoning) may be too much for some. Blueberry porter convinced me to take a stab at the concept at a homebrew level. Cask English IPA rounded out the sampler. Dissapointed that they were out of the seasonal fresh hop.

Ate a very well done Greek salad with a Masala Mama and then finished the evening with a half pint of the oatmeal stout.

Enjoyed the company of a young couple who worked at General Mills. Talked a lot of shop and shared some of my beer travel stories with them.

I didn't see the dining area. The bar area was large with high ceilings and provided easy access to the sidewalk seating which was crowded to a ~50 degree evening.

The beers were all exceptional and MTHB has made my list of top eight brewpubs in North America.
