  1. Great selection of Beer, food is quite good. Bar food, better than the original location of the Town Hall at 7 corners.. Busy at times so be prepared to wait.

      Yeah, went last night around 7:30 and it was a 40+ minute wait, so we went to Buster's instead. I've heard good things, though. Are the beers their own brews? And/or do they have other beer options? Full bar also?

        I was there last night, too. Must have been old home week for people who've haven't actually met yet!

        Nice corned beef sandwich with some the thick cut that I prefer and some cole slaw that was verrry heartily infused with horseradish. The fries are a throwaway.

        The beer list had 4 regular brews from THB (Dortmunder, Masala Mama IPA, Park Ave, and the Oatmeal Stout I think.) They had a few more more seasonal brews from THB such as the Festivus and an ESB. There were definitely guest brews and I saw several ciders on the list.

        From the CityPages writeup of the original announcement:
        Beer will include more than 24 taps, seven of the brewery's own creation--some exclusively--and also many guest beers from local breweries. Due to local laws, Town Hall will not be able to sell growlers at the new location, but the owners hope to someday grow large enough to sell from a second location--which would mean brewing 3,500 barrels a year (they now produce roughly 1200 to 1600). The new pub will be strictly beer and wine, and they are working on a small, well-crafted wine list.

          Excellent! Thanks for the info. I'm interested in the slaw. It's hard to find good slaw around. Fries are usually a throw away for me anyway, unless they are spectacular. I'm very intrigued. Definitely worth a second try to actually make it to a table.
