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.

Pub, old school, lots of pub style food selections. Affordable prices.

They brew pretty good beer. Masala Mama, etc. are worthy of their high ratings. They offer flights, the staff does a good job. Good wings, good burgers, not gourmet, but worth a try.

Nice atmosphere, if you like an old saloon type place. Good IPA(Masala Mama), and descent Strong Belgian Ale. Didn't eat any food so I can't comment on that.

Pretty awesome place. In addition to the good beer selection, the awesome cider selection and amazing food, made this also a good place to take my spouse as she doesn't care for beer.

I hit up Town Hall pretty late on a weeknight, so the crowd had died down a bit. They were still serving food, so that was cool. Anyway, it's a pretty classic pub set-up, good sized bar, lots of table space, wood and mirrors and TVs. Looked like what it is: a bar that's been around for a while and isn't going anywhere.

I've heard a lot of good reviews and recommendations, but I wasn't really into any of the beers. There were a ton of different beers on tap, and a very diverse range of styles. So I went with the seasonal sampler, then followed that up with a Mango Mama and a Three Hour Tour. Really nothing that I would want to have again, though the Java Porter was the best of the bunch.

Service was okay. The bartender was a little wifty and distant, but I really have no complaints. Food seemed like standard pub grub, and I was just looking for something small, so I went for the southwest egg rolls. They were good, but no better or worse than the ones they make at Chili's.

Yes, I was kind of disappointed overall, but I'd still say Town Hall is worth checking out at least once.
