Town Hall - MN
I'm going to be in Shakopee this weekend. My main quest is as a beer advocate, which takes me to Town Hall. Since I will be there, is there anything, foodwise, they do particularly well that you would recommend? On the flipside, anything I should avoid?
Any other recs are welcome.
Probably looking at dinner Saturday night, and a lunch Saturday afternoon. The lunch will be strictly for food. Dinners will include local brews.
If I had to pick just one brew pub in the Twin Cities to go to it would be Barley John's. I've been to every brew pub in the Twin Cities and I would rate their brews the best. I do need to go back. It is just quite a trek for me from the far western suburbs. I had the pizza the last time and it was excellent.
Definitely do not miss Barley John's. Terrific beers and the food isn't too bad either.
I would say the beer and food is better than Town Hall, however, Town Hall almost always has draught cask-conditioned ales, which are very good.
Also, if you have time, take the brewery tour at Surly. Absolutely outstanding local brew.
I would recommend the Pizza's and the homemade Soups at Barley Johns. Everything I have ever had was well made
I've gotten the nightly specials at Town Hall a couple times, and they tend to be better than their regular menu food.
But it is all bar food. They specialize in beer. They have awesome beer. Eat across the street at the Indian restaurant and order some sort of fish. It is really good. Then head over for the beers.
