Minneapolis brewpub Town Hall Brewery will temporarily shutter on January 1st, as it completes an expansion and renovation of the brewery, according to Twin Cities Business Magazine. Open since 1997, Town Hall Brewery hopes to complete the project within a month. The upgrade is expected to cost about $600,000.
Town Hall plans to add three 20-barrel fermenters and one 20-barrel holding tank, which will help it grow its annual production from about 2,400 barrels to a capacity of roughly 3,500. This will bring the Town Hall to the maximum production that Minnesota law allows for brewpubs. (Town Hall is defined as a "brewpub," which means it is a brewery that sells beer at its own restaurants, cannot sell to retailers, and it cannot produce more than 3,500 barrels annually, per location.) The beer will continue to be available at its two satellite locations, Town Hall Tap and Town Hall Lanes.
