After closing its doors in January to undergo an expansion and renovation, Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery, is on schedule to open back up to the public this week. Eater Minneapolis stopped in to check out the progress.
Following the successful opening of two satellite locations, Town Hall Lanes and Town Hall Tap, the Town Hall owners wanted to put the focus back on the original brewery, which opened at Seven Corners in 1997. The completely-updated space is split into a dining side with fireplace, glass-enclosed brewery, and a newly-enclosed kitchen. A portion of the dining area can also be used as an event space catering to 20-30 people, with a drop down projector screen and new sound system.
The bar side of the brewpub includes the original bar (slightly modified), booths, and new tap lines which will carry about 35 beers: 10 of which will be ciders, 10 guest beers, and the remainder being Town Hall's own brews. The brewpub continues to focus on small batches to ensure a wide variety of beers seasonally. Growler sales will continue with hopes of bringing monthly sales back to where they were prior to the recent taproom boom.
The renovated brewpub will open its doors this Friday at 6 p.m. to the public for a grand opening celebration.
